Story was pretty good but Tartarus sucks so much ass man

I had heard a lot of things about Persona 3's difficulty and its age, but I came out without bitterness, but a deep emotion within my heart.
P3 is a bit different than the others. I don't mean that in a gameplay sense, but it's much more of a quiet, sad, and brooding experience. The game starts off with characters almost shooting themselves, which is a wonderful metaphor for the whole game.
Remember your death.
Persona 3 is an old game. The gameplay has some age. But I love the age. You can't control party members in this one, leading to a lot of frustration between fans, however I found it interesting to strategize with commands like "full assault" or "heal", which work really well if you know what you're doing. The second criticism is Tartarus, the main dungeon of the game. Not multiple, but one single dungeon spanning 264 floors. While this can be daunting, Persona gameplay is so snappy anr fun that it didn't bother me.
Music changing in Tartarus to show your growth, as well as hip hop/rap songs, which is a refreshing change for the genre.
I want to talk about the characters in this game next because I find this cast to all be set in uncertain circumstances. These characters aren't necessarily friends like the other games, but are united with commom experiences and dread. Aigis is an important because she is the best example of a robot-become human I've ever seen. Aigis is a machine, a weapon, and she struggles throughout the game, and even after the credits roll, to find her purpose. It's hard, but it's important to know that humans struggle the same way.
The theme of death and remerance isn't easy, but this game handles it so well. Sometimes I want to say P3 is my favorite game of all time, but I'll sit on that.

Changed my life. Memories of you still makes me cry. Literally unexplainable how much this game means to me. Also, AIGIS

The best definitive version of the game, pretty good all in all, wonderful game
