If: I don’t tend to have time for long games. When I see people say ‘that looks like it’s only going to be 6 hours’ I think ‘ooh, something I might actually finish’. This one takes nearly that long to get past the point where you are just pressing X repeatedly. Yet it’s awesome! The story is really unusual and well told for a game, the combat when you get there has just enough twists on ancient turn-based tropes to not be a drag, and the social link mechanism is so rewarding you start wishing things actually worked like that. ‘The Singles Jukebox crew also weren’t impressed by Animal Collective. You feel closer than ever.’

“Sexuality and Homophobia in P4”

“The Most Fulfilling Game I’ve Ever Played”

Zappi: Finally, a JRPG with a story that i didn’t find painfully embarrassing! could have done without Teddie really, but the detective story setup, dungeon crawling through peoples’ psyches (very reminiscent of Psychonauts), the fun battle system – it improved in almost every way on Persona 3. It also gave us this brilliant webcomic.
