The DDNet debate: Persona: why we play it, what we love about it, and why Risette is a goddess


The DDNet team is always up for a good debate, so we figured we'd start to record our various arguments and stick them up for your amusement and/or information! On a regular basis we'll find a topic to discuss, and then we'll sit down to chat about it. Then we'll post up the conversation here for you all to have a read.

Be prepared for an equal mix of insanity and serious discussions. For our first go at this, we figured we'd chat about a series that we're all quite fixated on at the moment: The Persona series. How are we finding Persona 5? What do we like about it, compared to previous games - and were the previous games better in any way? And, of course, the most important discussion of all; who is the best waifu of all.

We hope you enjoy these debates!

Harvard L: Chie is the best character, everyone fight me.

Matt S: Harvard's already lost, one comment in. Chie's okay and all, but she's nowhere near best Persona character. And it only gets worse for her now that there's Ann and stuff in Persona 5.

I still maintain that Persona has this weird thing going on where your favourite characters are always going to be similar in some way to whoever you had a bad crush on back at school or whatever. The developers are quite incredible at taking various, shall we say, stereotypes, of school life, and then representing them in a remarkably authentic way that is somehow relevant to far too many people. I always found myself crushing over ridiculously cute girls way outta my league, so that explains Risette and Ann.
