I’d trust PTA because he is a great director, but Inherent Vice was just pretty good…get Jodorowsky to do it : 3

Hell yeah. I haven’t even played Catherine very much, but I love the world – one of Atlus’ best.

I highly recommend P4 for newcomers to the series. It’s a bit more contemporary than 3, though 3 is probably the best…though, if you want my real recommendation, forgo Persona and go play SMT Nocturne or Strange Journey ; )

It makes me wonder: we watch a show like Two & a Half Men and recognize that the characters are absurd caricatures of exaggerated behaviors. Obviously, 1950s popular culture is nowhere near as savvy on irony and self-reflection as our current one, but did more savvy viewers in the 50s watch Ward Cleaver and get the same idea? I see older generations revisit these shows and reminisce on a “simpler” time, but I have to think that “even back then,” some of these characters were seen as exaggerated.

Great post!
