Yet through some trickery, it's actually a great game that excels in taking the mundane and making it exciting. "

venfayth says: "If someone were to ask me what I thought the most fulfilling game I’ve ever played was, I would tell them that without a doubt it is Persona 4. Persona 4 is far and away the most fleshed out and satisfying RPG I have ever played in just about every single way. Categorically speaking this game is flawless. "
