Just need to know if I'm going to miss a lot! P4:Golden will be my first Persona game.

Thanks !

Persona games aren't continuations of each other so you're good to start on P4G.

If you don't play Persona 3 you'll miss a few references but that's it

No you don't. As others said they are not direct continuations of each other. I definitely recommend checking P3 and P5 though which are great games in their own right. The P4 spin offs (and the soon to be released P3 and P5 spinoffs) provide some extra content and fanservice but are not really necessary to enjoy the games.

Yu do visit the school from persona 3 midgame(which is a pretty insignificant scene to begin with), but otherwise theres no connection to other persona games.

New Persona games aren't continuations of each other, but Persona 1 and both of the P2 games are very story heavy related with each other and need to be played to understand everything. P3 and on has a completely new writer on board, and he's made a few nods to the first 2 games (technically 3) in P3 and 4, but that's literally it. Every Persona game since 3 can be played independently. They all take place in the same universe and timeline, but they just don't matter for each new game once you hit 3.

I played Persona 4 Golden without playing any previous Persona games. It was a completely new story. Didn't feel like I needed to know anything about previous games while playing it.
