Serious question. Thinking about getting this game.

People tend to laugh when I ask people to do this, but would anyone be willing to tell me what 3 games this is like?

Example: Dishonored: Bioshock powers, Skyrim AI, Deus Ex Story telling.

This game sounds awesome and I missed out on persona as a kid. =) just got this Vita and it seemed like a great game to buy.

Persona 3, Persona 3 FES, Persona 3 Portable

...I know that sounds like a sarcastic answer, but I really can't give you much more than that.

Basically Persona 4 (and 3) is like two games in one.

In one half you have a sort of social sim game where you spend your afternoons (and sometimes nights) hanging out with friends, meeting new people and raising your ranks from 1 to 10

The other half is dungeon crawling. Randomly generated floors, turn based combat, collecting and fusing new Persona to use in battle.

My best advice is to just watch some gameplay videos, because it's really hard to describe the game when you try to compare it to something else.

Get it. If what you've heard sounds good and has interested you, once you play, it'll be a billion times better.

2nd poster: Fair enough, I know it's an incredibly different RPG, just don't know if it's a JRPG, Western , all of that. I'm going in sorta blind minus knowing you date people or have friends in game or something like that.
3rd poster: Yeah, might get it digitally next payday, need a memory card, any idea how big the digital version is?

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club character interaction, vaguely Final Fantasy X-like battle system, in that some actions may grant you additional turns, visual novel-esque dialog scenes, with character models moving around behind the character profiles.

Turn based RPG, dating and/or social sim, highscool anime.

That's the best I can come up with that resembles your request.
