Song of the Day: R.PG. ~Rockin’ Playing Game~ by SuG (Fairy Tail OP)
Last December, I finished playing Persona 3 Portable.
It’s the ported version of Persona 3, with the male protagonist Minato Arisato in Normal Mode and the game was quickly filed in the “Most Memorable Plays of All Time” section of my brain (I’m not a die hard gamer but I’ve played enough to list down a sizeable collection). With its colorful cast, intuitive storyline and intriguing theme, the diverse reality of Persona 3 is what the best video games were about: engaging and entertaining while teaching and inspiring.
[Side note: currently I'm playing the female protagonist route--fan named Minako--in Maniac mode. Because apparently I don't have better things to do with my time.]
Video games may be a means of leisure but that doesn’t mean gamers don’t get anything from it. It’s been proven in studies that video games help players develop better eye-hand coordination and improve strategic skills. But more importantly, and on a more personal note, video games taught and affirmed to me things about real life in general.
