I love P5 so maybe it's just rough for me going back to a 12/13 year old game. I knew going in that it wouldn't be like P5 because obviously 4 and 5 would have improved things.
I was probably being a bit harsh but Tartarus compared to Palaces is quite the step back. There's not much visual difference between levels but it's quite relaxing in a way to push through all the floors and it gives a nice break from all the reading.
Spending time with the characters is fun and I guess I shouldn't have said boring lol. It might be that I'm playing Portable so there are no 3d models or cutscenes so everything feels much more static. I was playing FES originally but quit that because I kept dying and would need to restart to pick an easier difficulty lol and I was hesitant about playing Portable due to lack of the cutscenes etc.
My main problem is that I feel like I'm playing the game wrong. I know I could be doing things more efficiently but I don't want to follow a guide. All I'm asking is if there is anything I should be doing instead of just going straight to social links or trying to increase my stats. At night I can only go to the dorm or the mall but during the day there are lots of places to go. I've explored but all I can really find is doing part time jobs which give a bit of cash.
Sorry if I'm making no sense
