Evokers were a horrible concept that acted as a weird edgy selling point prior to P3's release based on certain people who would not shut up about it. One can argue it fits the nippon-obsessed-my-chemical-romance-fanfiction themes of P3 but they were never necessary.
While crushing cards is weird it is still preferable to just having an odd aura surround you as in P1 and 2, or using a machine that looks like a gun as in P3 largely as the cards actually have a relation to game concepts given that since P1 Cards were always involved in persona creation/summoning/fusion/etc.
I remember the explanation to the Evoker being that Persona are triggered by the sense of fear, so pointing a gun at your head somehow evoke that reaction from the users, which let them summon their Persona's easier......kinda make sense to me.
Doesn't make sense to me. Considering after the first few times, you know that you're not actually going to get harmed by pointing a gun to your head and pulling the trigger. And fear enough should be the big shadow monster that wants to eat your face.
It makes even less sense with continued use assuming the average player summons a persona a couple hundred times or so.
I chalk up that explanation to be complete BS inserted to 3's exclusive terrible logic similar to how Trinity Soul attempted to feed a line on adults not being able to use Persona after a time or 4's logic on how Nanako despite her issues with having a dead mom and questioning if her dad loves her gets no shadow because "SHE IS TOO YOUNG!"
