Persona 4 Golden
An absolute golden nugget

Product: Persona 4 Golden
Format: PS Vita
Being a high school student can be tough. Not only do you have to balance a healthy social life with extracurricular activities, school studies, and a part-time job, but you've also got to solve a mysterious murder case that's plaguing your hometown.
Okay, so it's possible that the last part doesn't apply to you, but that's exactly how the teenage protagonists of Atlus's Persona 4 Golden spent a year of their high school lives.
A foggy outlook
Persona 4 Golden puts you in the shoes of the perfect J-RPG stereotype: a young, mostly silent, and rather blank protagonist. And an unnamed one at that - though I've given him the unofficial name of Hugo Estiban.
A lack of real Vita innovation lets it down somewhat, but that aside this is a perfect pocket-sized JRPG that'll keep you gripped to the screen until your eyes turn square. A must-have for any Persona fan
