 Well really that story wouldn't bother me if they didn't go back to high school the next day lol. I don't mind characters that are normal who are thrust into worlds of chaos but the fact that they go back to that normal high school setting everyday. I never made it to far in the games so I don't know if they get better but I felt like the majority of my time playing them was spent doing stupid highschool skits and running around getting up umm <real life stats I guess is what you would call them lol>.


 To be fair the problem is that I always lost interest or got frustrated with the time management before the actual story and gameplay could pick up so Its more my fault then the game.

  I must say I am more excited for the Etrian Odyssey that actually has main characters that follow a story. I feel I would like this game more than the other persona games but all in all I just was never really into the setting of High Schoolers by day and demon trainers by night thing. All the tedious time management things always really bothered me as I felt I could never really do what I wanted to without worrying about missing something important.

It's odd that you say that, because normally I'd HATE a game centered around the daily lives of high school students.  But I think what makes persona so great is that it uses the daily lives/high school theme in order to frame it's characters as totally normal people thrust into completely abnormal situations.  They are normal kids who go to school and deal with life's bullshit (like cunty teachers and dickface classmates) and then have to put all of those things (that are hard enough on their own) aside and oh-by-the-way go fight a bunch of monsters in a dimension between/beyond time (at least in Persona 3's case). 

I tend to gravitate more towards more adult themed characters but in Persona's case, I don't know how effective following some plumber or electrician around for 9 months would have been.  Though, that worked to a degree in Catherine.

 Looking at this makes me realize how much I miss a lot of those great companies of the past and makes me wonder how awesome it would be if they were still making their main series.

 It was all Squaresofts fault all along really they killed all their competition with graphics and then internally combusted upon themselves lol.

I thought of one more (again, these are more personal moments than just events that happen in games)

Was fighting the true final boss in Persona 4 and I get to the part at the end of the fight where it starts casting it's one hit KO's and your other party members take the hits for your MC. The music lined up such that as the other party members were pushing the MC out of the way the music was playing the sort-of Grand Finale sounding remix of Reach Out to the Truth at the end of the loop.

I was absolutely floored with how climactic it felt with that part of the music playing. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Heard some of the music which sounded great and I like these old school dungeon crawlers so will put this on the radar.   At the minute though there's too much else coming out at the same time!

This came out today here in the UK and I picked it up on PC.   Unfortunately first impressions are a bit disappointing.   Im playing as a dual wielding rogue and the combat feels like I'm playing an action game.  I have to  move around in real time and keep my mouse cursor on an enemy to hit them?   Feels even more gamey than DA2, and quite fiddly.  I saw the Parry skill on the skill tree, tried it out a bit.   Wondered if the AI is clever enough to use it properly if I'm controlling another character.   Maybe this experience would be better on a console with a gamepad.     Then I had a look at the tactical mode, can see what Rob was saying, it was difficult to see the enemies without loads of scrolling the screen around.   Hopefully i will get used to it with a bit more play as it looks and sounds great.   

Gameplay aside I'm also getting a Crash to desktop during cutscenes (directx related), which looking at the forums seems to be an ongoing issue for lots of folks.   If that turns into a regular crash issue I might have to go back to Jagged Alliance 2 until they patch it.   The joys of pc gaming!

The obvious ones I can remember easily are:

Castle Fantasia (+Renewal)
If you follow the path for freedom, you end up doing a chain of onslaught missions where the country's military is trying to kill your group before you desert and fleet by sea.
The difficulty goes way up (hardest in the whole game) and a special background song starts playing. It's the first and only voiced song in the game.
It's a really incredible experience as you fight the kingdom's oppression against terrible odds.
I've never felt as 'engaged' in a game's moment as this one

The song (if you consider ever playing the game, don't listen - keep the magic for that moment): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7xqCWy-EW8

Ar Tonelico 2
Using Replekia and then harmonic chain. POWER OVERWHELMING !!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt1ASvGnkVE#t=83

Ever17
The ending
MIND = BLOWN

Terranigma
The ending screen
I stood there for MINUTES just looking at it.

Final Fantasy V
Gilgamesh turning traitor
I'm sad that now Gilgamesh is just a gag extra boss in recent FFs =(

Chrono Trigger
Opening the path to Magus' castle (the Masamune)

Star Ocean 3
The fight against Crossel.
I like the build-up to it, the fact that he is enormous and the awesome song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoLLM72RKPA#t=114

Almost forgot!!!

Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner
VASCILLIA SKIES!!!
By far one of the best level out of any game.

You can buy the re-spec items from the I think materials sack? Right next to the forge. The first one cost one gold, but the others cost several hundred after that.
