I’m hesitant to fall into the Persona hole. I’m not a huge fan of turn based combat but the aesthetic and characters of the games seem cool and i love the art style. I don’t know if I have to time and money to spend on the games and the hours to play all the games I can get my hands on if i were to get into the series. Because I can’t just play one, I’d want to play 4 and 3 and Q and maybe even the dancing games.

Also this is kind of dumb i know, but i’m afraid of liking all the characters and wanting to buy figures of them all :|| and that’s so much money holy god


This is what happened with Fate and like i’m not upset i got into fate, but it’s definitely a lot to take in and understand.

Does this sound stupid lol?


to be fair, im not much of a JRPG person either, but i really fell in love with persona starting with 5, and id say its probably the best jumping on point
3 is good but tartarus sucks, and i just dont like many of the characters in 4
that being said, it is a 100+ hour game, it really is a time investment, but it is totally worth it

the spinoffs are decent too! persona 5: dancing in starlight would probably be your best bet since it's a rhythm game i got through in 2 days
persona q is kinda eh to me, its also a serious time investment. i think the only way persona q can pull me in is with P5 elements, which theyre doing this june lol

TL;DR:
good music + good story - good gameplay = persona 3
good music + good gameplay - good story = persona 4
good music + good gameplay + good story = persona 5

It's not the kind of game where you MUST play all though. It's not called semi-VN for nothing. You can engage with the characters just as much by watching let's plays as you can with the console, because they're mostly so easy to identify with.


i kinda wouldnt recommend using lets plays to judge the story of games like the persona series just because sometimes the content creator might be totally disinterested in a character youre super stoked to learn more about
id say play it for the most customizable experience, that way if you love a certain character but cant stand another, you dont have to sit through all their quests and stuff

- - -

also, weird aside here, i think it's honestly really interesting that my three favorite game series are genres and tones i normally wouldnt like otherwise
im not a fan of strategy games, im not a fan of stealth games, and im not a fan of JRPGs, and here i am, loving fire emblem, metal gear, and persona
i think it really speaks to their quality that they can pull me into genres i normally dont like

Oh don't worry I don't mean any Let's Play. My real intro to the series was SuperJeenius who 100% Persona 4 Golden and would point out all the neat little things hidden in the world.

My only problem with 5 which MIGHT be reticified in Royal, aside from the minor problems of meh gay representation, is that the characters don't get enough time to be themselves after the first arc. Joker is CRAZY developed if you read between the lines (unlike Yu and Minato, you're not picking what you want to say, you're picking what he wants but can't decide), Ann and Ryuji are great, Morgana falls apart at points but he's still enjoyable. Makoto and Futaba just proceed to eclipse all character interaction after, and I feel like Yusuke, Akechi and ESPECIALLY Haru suffer for it.

It's lacking a sequence like the Junes show or the skiing lodge from 4, where there's no looming threat and they can stop being serious for 5 seconds. But that's because the characters ARE great, they just don't get to show it as much (aside from Mementos dialogue which... no. It took several months for someone DELIBERATELY farming dialogue to roll every single one).

I get occasional swings of depression and self-loathing, but rarely share and instead put on a mask and pretend everything is fine and I'm happy, but I don't share this because I feel like telling people is guilt tripping or asking for pity, even now I'm regretting making this post.

Isn't that the entire point of seeing the doctor

However, if it didn't work and you can affort it, I always recommend looking for another. I passed through many 'oh she's just a kid let's just play board games and see how she reacts' therapists to find my current one that goes 'yeah the bullying affected you pretty hard, board games are for your patience but now you need to actually talk'.

I guess it really depends on your definition of "pro LGBT", since the term often gets mixed up with all kinds of tumblr ideologies. I kind of agree though, insofar as I don't think the opinions of small children matter much either way. Anyone who grows up within touch of normal society will just end up forming their own opinions based on their own experiences.

I have one more thing to say about Spyro on this site and it's going to be very, very bitter and fairly judgemental

It's damn sad that people still like to piss on Skyro, cry "goblin" and only ever pull up the original iteration of the design (Imaginators variant is the real bad one honestly, and I may be biased in saying this but the original version is a LOT better than people give it credit for), say they're glad that's over at completely unnessicary times

People even like to say lol they're just cheap kids games when five minutes looking at photos will prove the contrary and show great effort in the art, there's the legacy support, there's the number of characters with so much clear effort in them and fresh movesets and stuff, there's genuine great mechanics and design. You know what're cheap kids games? Junk on mobile, old licenesed tie-ins, Bubsy.

Legend (which I also like) could represent the exact same thing people claim Skylanders to be and yet people have moved on much more from that (there's still a divide but LoS is not primarily a scapegoat and gets more genuine discussion and pulled up less)
From what I remember, just about three years after Legend ended, people had already moved on far better. I realise that much time hasn't passed since Skylanders died, but I don't see the same thing happening.

Despite how tall it stands on its own and how it clearly isn't trying to just be a Spyro spinoff or successor, much more its own thing, Skylanders will always live in the shadow of Spyro to the general public and be considered a "weird phase" of Spyro to a lot of people
It's easy to say this right now, but I get the impression it will always be more pissed on than even LoS

Skylanders is absolutely its own thing, and if you're going to bring up Skylanders in the context of Spyro's history, it's really just a weird blip and footnote
Spyro was just redesigned for the context and became a guest, which really isn't that insulting
It was clear from day one honestly that he was just going to be a guest just used for marketing, and yes, I was there, and I was only 11 or 12 back then

I've always seen it as the same kind of thing as the myriad of dead franchises in Smash. I mean it's not exactly the same, since those characters don't really get redesigned, but- hey, they're just guests, there's no harm in it and they're still available to play in some newer form. Better than Golden Sun gets.
I could instead easily whine about how Nintendo still waste F-Zero, which is one of my favorite franchises of theirs, for instance, or how they refuse to officially bring over Mother 3, or many other ways they mishandle their franchises. But that has nothing to do with them appearing in Smash, so while I might still complain about them otherwise, I'm not going to do it just because someone bought up Smash or something, it's a different issue.

Crash was worse off for having absolutely nothing to do and Crash fans don't just cry about that

Before you say "well, at least he wasn't tarnished", instead imagine how little there would be to discuss, how many fans would be lost, and how much more dead both series would be if it hadn't been for the in-between games- some of which people also claim tarnished or ruined the franchises, and besides maybe Twinsanity, none of which are held in nearly the same regard as the original games (people from both fandoms still want those to be cut from history).

You can hold whatever opinion you want about Skylanders, but if you really think it was that bad for Spyro you're a dumbass about it. And yeah I said it and I don't care, because the kind of people who still bring up 'landers just to piss on it usually are dumbasses about the series, it did way more good than bad for Spyro (gave TFB more experience, probably the reigns to the remake, and kept at least some more public interest in Spyro, it even kept some extra activity on sites like this, AND GUESS WHAT IF YOU DON'T LIKE SKYLANDERS IT'S PRETTY DEAD AND EASY TO IGNORE NOW SO YOU CAN MOVE ON.)

And I've seen some of these same people be the ones saying that if you prefer the original PS1 games to the remake it's just nostalgia and you should move on. The irony.

I'm of course not saying these are mutually exclusive, or that everyone does it, but again it's all too common and way no-mondo

The efforts by certain people of the 'landers fandom, at least earlier on, to try and make Skylanders part of Spyro essentially hurt Skylanders much more than anything. I imagine that Spyro didn't help with marketing the series much either, as the bitterness over that caused bad PR and evened out with potential gained sales.
Other than the actual Spyro guests, Skylanders content should never have been part of the Spyro wiki, and frankly I hope Aura24 regrets that in retrospect.
dark should have made his Skylanders site separate.

Skylanders lives in Spyro's shadow and is often pissed on partially because of this kind of thing and I know if I hated 'landers I wouldn't have liked seeing it grouped with Spyro. I LOVE Skylanders (and I like Spyro) and I HATE seeing it grouped with Spyro.

Honestly Spyro is still dead to me because this remake doesn't capture what I like about it, and while I complain about Reignited a lot I'm not just looking for chances to or trying to hate the game or anything and I wasn't coming back here to whine with every single bit of info (when I easily could have and had much to whine about). I mean I'm guilty of **** for sure, I'm sure I've done and said a lo I forgot or don't realise, but I'm not trying to just piss like people still do on Skylanders dear god it is 2019 why.

Imo they matter when you're a child who is LGBT growing up with these children.
I still remember my classmates when we were in the 5th grade ( so we were all ~10 years old) calling me a q ueer because I had expressed interest in other girls.

I still remember how these kids would call me a t ranny or a she-male because sometimes I dressed up in boy's clothes (even though I was never trans).

Growing up around those kids was hell, and I know I wasn't the only child who had to go through these kinds of experiences. In fact, other children go through much worse.

You don't have to go into detail about how sexuality works. If a kid can learn to hate at such an early age, then what's the harm in teaching them to be accepting at that age too?

Right, then it obviously matters to you, but in a larger context childhood bullying doesn't determine how your life will turn out, and I would also say it's inevitable to an extent. Mainly because kids are comparatively simple, and often say and do stupid things because they're still learning social strategies and their consequences. And that's regardless of whether you're LGBT or not, everyone who behaves differently faces it at some point.
It's not 100% clear that all those views come directly from their parents either. I mean, can you say for certain that what you went through could've been avoided if these kid's parents would've told them to be more accepting? On the other end, do you think it happened because their parents either didn't tell them to be accepting or told them to be unaccepting?

I'm not speaking from ignorance of what being bullied feels like either. I was bullied constantly in middle school myself, and I was often called gay or some slur related to that simply for having long hair. I'm not for making others go through that, but it's the reality of childhood development no matter what anyone cares to do about it.
Oh and funnily enough, lately I've found out that one of guys who did that to me actually turned out to be gay himself. I can't help but to assume that he just didn't know better at the time.

And what's the harm in teaching acceptance? Close to none, I would assume. Personally I would try to teach my kids the value and use of acceptance, but never that they need to accept anyone without question. Again, I guess it's a just matter of how you read into it.

Don't put words in other people's mouths because you can't bring yourself to like something EVEN WITH its mistakes, Drawdler. Aura loves both Spyro and Skylanders and never stopped posting about how both fandoms can live together. I don't mind when someone adds Spyro content to the Skylanders wiki if it's relevant to the franchise, she doesn't mind if the opposite is made. It's a shame someone who used to be so great to talk to now deliberately wants people to be apart, all because Reignited isn't perfect enough.

I'm sorry if this is harsh. It's gonna hit a sore spot if you bring up the wiki, it's THE thankless job that Aura and I have and she has it doubled.

I'm sorry if this is harsh. It's gonna hit a sore spot if you bring up the wiki, it's THE thankless job that Aura and I have and she has it doubled.



I, for one would like to thank you for working on the wiki. I've seen it change for the better over the years, and it's been a very useful resource.

Thanks! I stick to the Skylanders Wiki while she does both, but I'm always looking at the Spyro Wiki to check for things I don't know about the main series. (and occasionally helping edit out some weird things that stayed there for years unnoticed)

I personally feel that a majority of Skylanders stuff shouldn't be on the Spyro wiki, but sheesh that was a rude way of wording it. :/

I think the main problem with that would be the amount of stacked "you may be looking for... (Classic/LOS article)" and "full article at the Skylanders Wiki" templates which not everyone notices, but like, it's a fan wiki, not an official lorebook. As long as it's well organized and Aura organizes it VERY WELL, it's fine.

Fair enough, I guess. *shrug*

I mean honestly, I don't think the devs would keep a wiki of all of the Spyro things ever, so I'm glad there's one, even if it can be rough in some areas. The Spyro IP has always really been one that gets tossed around from dev to dev, so I would expect to lose information without a resource like a wiki.

Case in point - Skylanders Ring of Heroes actively uses information from our wiki. I mistakenly forgot to put a Nefarion picture and they redesigned him from the ground up; someone added notes about characters that got brought up in dialogue that are only conclusions we drew from the games/comics/books. It shouldn't happen but if Activision literally made them do an E3 event outside the building I don't think they're even allowed to see much of the official lore data, so we did help out a lot indirectly.

Just my two cents that no one asked for ... I don't see the problem with Skylanders being involved with the Spyro wiki or vise versa. I mean, the first instalment literally has Spyro's name in the title, and he is a pretty main character in the franchise. He's the main character in the Netflix series even.
Skylanders is not a Spyro franchise, of course, but the two will always be intertwined and I think it'd be silly to ignore that part of Spyro's history and pretend like the two are completely separate.
There are a few returning characters from the Spyro series as well. Auric is literally the Skylanders version of Moneybags, they just had to change the name for copyright reasons. But in the dev office they literally just referred to him as Moneybags (source Mike Stout).

(And yes, I'd like to thank Bifrost and Aura for their work on the wiki, and all the other volunteers. It's a wonderful resource, and I have spent a lot of time reading through the articles. Thank you.)
