Persona 3 FES: Nyx nixed

After 108-plus hours played, I’ve completed Persona 3 FES. What an extraordinarily annoying final battle that was. It took me three tries to beat the Ultimate Bad Guy in what were protracted struggles that epitomised everything that’s awful about boss battles. Gaming as a whole will be much improved when designers finally manage to distinguish between challenge and tedium, and recognise gamers should be presented with one and spared the other.

What followed afterwards was equally extraordinary but more welcome by several orders of magnitude. There were several powerful and affecting moments in P3F’s finale that would leave only the most stonehearted of gamers unmoved, with plenty to reflect upon after the console has been shut down.

The Journey has come to an end, but The Answer remains undiscovered.
