The Christmas gift that is Risette.

2 mins read

It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.

As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.

Day 21: Persona 4 Golden

Read our review here.

Technically, Persona 4 Golden is a 2023 release, since the Nintendo Switch version landed this year. As such, it qualifies for our little Christmas countdown, and since it is only the greatest game of all time, it would feel wrong if we weren’t here shilling for everyone to play it this season. Whether it’s the first time you’ve ever played Persona 4, or the 20th, it’s still one we would instantly recommend to anyone.

But also, with complete sincerity: Persona 4 Golden is a brilliant game for the Christmas season. At its core, Persona 4 is a story about friendship and appreciating the important moments with your comrades. It’s also an almost-painful reminder to take nothing for granted because, ultimately, everything in life is fleeting, and making those memories count means everything to life. In short, it’s a reminder that we should all do what we can to find the good in the Christmas season and our relationships with those closest to us.

Unfortunately, Persona 4 Golden is a digital download only, but… Preorder Persona 3 Reload on Amazon (By purchasing from this link, you support DDNet, which earns a small commission from each sale)
