About to jump back into my favourite game for the 4838264838rd time. What’s your favourite moment from this absolute gem?

The rooftop scene 😥
Yeeeeahhhhh. Gonna have to stock up on tissues in around 70 or so hours again.
Every time I say to myself I’m not gonna get emotional
Fails every time. Only game to ever bring me to tears
Yeah it’s the combination of that particular scene and how much of a tearjerker Kimi no Kioku is. I think the only other game to do that for me would be when a particular party member leaves in Lost Odyssey.
Aftermath of that guy's funeral (not spelling it out so I don’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t played yet), particularly Akihiko's resolution, he's living up to the Emperor Arcana after that, being the first person awakening to a second persona and leading the others to it, as well as showing growth and maturity. P.S. let’s not talk about how this sort of stuff is forgotten in favor of showing off his lust of protein and fighting.
I remember my first time playing and watching that unfold. I didn’t particularly like Akihiko up until that point. And the little addition of him remembering said guy when he wins a battle is just oof “chefs kiss”
Frankly, even just this might spoil it , "guy Akihiko cares about" narrows down to one likely person, maybe two or three if you include other SEES members but one of them is the main character, whose funeral obviously not happening in the middle of the game, and the last really doesn't fit anyway.
Junpei’s resolution-also known as >!Junpei awakens his ultimate persona and almost kills Jin to one of the best tracks in the series.!<
Remember that Junpei downed Jin using a fire attack. Jin repels fire. That would’ve straight up killed Takaya if it hit him instead.
Man so mad, he just IGNORED Jin’s elemental affinities💀
The fade from the ending into the opening lyrics of the credits
kaze no koe hikari no tsubu madoromu kimi ni sosogu
wasurenai yasashii hohoemi kanashisa kakushita hitomi wo
negau koto tsurakutemo tachimukau yuuki kimi ni moratta dakara yukune
yume no naka mezametara mata aeruyo
Ngl i feel like when chidori died is the best, becuz character growth for stupei is good.
Ace defective is probably my favourite line in the whole game the delivery from yukari is so bad it’s good!
Also Welcome to Junpei’s believe it or don’t.
Gotta agree on this one.... And junpeis believe it or dont remind me of that one skii scene in p4g where protag is promted to scare chie...
Oh an chidoris whole arc was really well written into the story of the otherwise quite bland Strega members I mean I personally think jin is terrible
I mean when u rlly get into it strega really does not have a good reasoning behind whatever they planned on doing....
Well yeah I mean takaya is a lot more convincing because he gives off the whole prophet end of the world vibe and chidoris character has the most depth out of the three and actually has a convincing character development phase but Jin? He is literally a troll that’s it he has no motivation to destroy sees except for being takaya’s bitch boy and ultimately in the end gets left behind and ends up blowing himself up anyway lol.
True true... Imo i see jin as just a cannon fodder honestly... In game he aint even particurlarly strong when i played the game.
Aight serious questio, how many times havr you actially played p3? Is there even anything new to experience after the third playthrough?
About 7 times and not really just bullying the reaper and nuzlocke demon runs to keep things interesting
"I've been waiting for this!"
Fr tho that one seen in the anime where Shinji cooked Koromaru hamburgers or something in a pink apron, only for Aigis to walk in on them
protagonist awakening. blew me away (heheh) and got me hooked instantly. how tf you willing to shoot yourself so nonchalantly, bc the protagonist didn’t necessarily know that wouldn’t kill him. overall didn’t expect it.
Yeah has to be mine too. That whole scene is so badass also he really shows off his large vocabulary in that scene.
~heavy breathing~ per…so…na
I AM THOU THOU ART I BIG DICK ORPHEUS IS IN CHARGE NOW.
The entirety of the Colosseo Purgatorio in The Answer. I felt like such a piece of shit throughout all three fights. Say what you will about the gameplay, but The Answer's story was phenomenal.
The answer is fucking underrated. Metis is best girl.
I think its only underrated by Atlus fault
Why lock the story in hard mode and then make players go through 40+ hours of just Tartarus? They didn't even let you use the compendium in it. It's honestly baffling.
Aegis is love aegis is life
Any of the Resolutions. I really hope that story based resolutions come back even though I know that it's probably not gonna come back. If I had to ick my favorite one, I'd say either Junpei, Mitsuru or Akihiko
Critting the sleeping table and killing it with an AOA for sure, I swear that fight was harder than the reaper fight.
I have ptsd about that fucking table.
"More like Stupei, Ace Defective"
Everything with Ken and Koromaru is my absolute favourite in the game.
About time for my semi annual playthrough myself, it’s been a while. Storywise the best moment for me is the ending; super impactful. I play FES for the gameplay though, best in the franchise.
I applaud you for being able to enjoy the gameplay
I like it’s complexity and above average difficulty, but I’m also a JRPG-head so I get why it’s not for everyone.
Start of fall term. Changing seasons gave you a heads up sht was about to get real
I like the moment when this NIGHTMARE ENDS.
Aigis Rank 10. The way Aigis a robot rationalizes to experience intimacy on her own ways is just... *chef's kiss*
the day after you choose to not kill ryojy and you get to listen living with determination for the first time, hopelessness is the only thing I felt at that moment
Omg yes. I remember accidentally choosing to kill him and being absolutely mind blown when that happened. It felt so strange seeing that ending knowing everyone had lost their memories and unknowingly had no idea the world was about to end. Freaky stuff.
I like the part where Yukari drags Junpei and the main character to an alley and antagonizes everyone there, almost getting them killed until Shinji saves them; however, it does not take your time slot for that day, so that's pretty sweet.
Are you stupid?
More like stupei ace defective
Ok well mine would actually have to be when minato awakens to his persona. Seeing Thanatos rip the shit out of those shadows on the roof is so damn cool. Something about that scene and the build up to it is just chefs kiss oof fantastic. Probably in my top 5 persona awakenings for sure.
I have no way of playing it and I'm upset about it
Ppsspp on android or iOS is a great way to play p3p
The final month part is just so damn depressing, I love it so much. Something about P3’s ending is different from 4 and 5. >! Obviously considering Makoto’s the only protagonist to die !<
But the music, the general atmosphere is just fantastic, and the whole >! End of The World scenario if Nyx comes !< was so eerie, reminds me a lot of Teen Titans when Trigon comes back to fulfill the prophecy.
Sure, it’s kinda cheesy when SEES are all like, “let’s save the world, guys!” But that’s when you and SEES become actual friends, and Junpei fully apologizes, and…ugh, it’s so good.
Nyx to me is just so much more threatening than a gas station attendant tbh
The european boxart with all the characters facing their Personas. IDK why this boxart wasn't used in the US release.
>!March 5th made me cry like a bitch!< no videogame except this one and P4 has done that to me
When the fucking door guy took a nap
Tell you my least favorite moment... fighting Nyx. Tried twice so far and lost on 1 shots 45 minutes into the fight... Hour long fights are not fun...
The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed…
The final Boss fight. The music, coupled with Nyx's design and the whole fight was really amazing.
Also, the first 2 months of the game. The pacing is top notch, and Tartarus exploration feels really tame. I think these months and the last 2 months are some of the best gameplay and story the game has to offer.
