Here's some outside reading for people still making their way through Persona 3.
I wrote this piece on my own site, talking about how the gameplay of Persona 3 is inextricable from its narrative in how it advances themes, particularly the concept of free will:
I also wrote a very long and comprehensive breakdown of the different versions of Persona 3, and how the balancing issues of the gameplay were affected by the smaller choices:
There's a number of other pieces on my site about MegaTen titles including Persona 3, but one of the best writings on the subject was by a critic on another site:
This piece on how most MegaTen games (including Persona) are about how we converse with game systems themselves is the key to understanding their best titles, Persona 3 included. Their site is down as I write this, but they're a great location for criticism.
I hope some of this helps! There isn't nearly enough Persona 3 writing online that gets in deep.
