I've played 1 through 3 recently and currently on part 4.

Aging I would say P2 is improved, but I would't say it is miles ahead of P1. Gameplay is similar to part 2, except you have a placement grid for your characters so there is attack range issues to be concerned about and it also lacks team attacks like in part 2. There more elements than the other games and you have both gun and none gun attacks so the game does feel like it requires more strategy any of the other persona games. Also Each character can have three personas equipped to themselves to switch between in battle. Games fusion system is also more similar to P3 or P4 unlike P2 which you grind cards of a certain type. One last thing I can think of, is some enemies are a hung pain in the ass in P1 that the best strategy is to get their card and talk to them to make them flee. Final boss was also a pain in the ass if you didn't have the main characters best persona.

Nothing wrong with a 40 year old man watching anime intended for 5 year old Japanese girls.

Most people consider it the worst in the series. I myself got it a while back and never got it, but really like P4g so take that as you will.

I like it a lot, though I do love my dungeon crawlers. If you do get this game, prepare for insane difficulty.

always assume everybody on the Internet is either a 12 year old, or a creeper in his mid 40's. The Internet makes more sense that way.
