https://www.youtube.com/c/StrawberryCreme26/featured You know, there are video game series that I consistently go back to, in the same way people will re-read books, re-watch films and TV shows, and listen to favourite albums or singles. In my case, among the go-to game series are the Persona games. In particular Persona 3, 4 and 5, as well as all of the games associated with those 3 sets … Continue reading Sapphire
