DashGamer Easter Break: March 20, 2023 - April 3, 2024

We asked ChatGPT to make Persona 6

The Computers are taking over...

There’s no question in how fast AI is moving. Its expeditious rate is scarily quick, and it’s learning rapidly in how to take information from the internet and turn it into elaborate and structured colloquy. ChatGPT is the prime example right now in having a fully versed discourse with a computer that spouts information, pleasantries and random facts. But it’s fascinating to play around with and see what original work it comes up with. After requesting ChatGPT to write lyrics to a song titled “Orange Rind” by multi-award winning artist Adele, and it came out hauntingly realistic, but somewhat funny;

Verse 1:
In the morning sun, I see you shine
Like the colors of autumn, so warm and fine
I can smell the sweetness in the air
And it takes me back to when you were there

Chorus:
Oh orange rind, the taste of you is divine
With every peel, my love for you will shine
You are the fruit that brightens up my day
And I just can't get enough of your sweet, sweet way

I Read this in Adele's singing voice.

So yeah, just an example of an entire song written in ChatGPT. It’s insane the amount of creativity this application will create for users. There are many examples of AI being used to create various forms of media, but in a practical sense, ChatGPT seems to be the most refined thus far. I wanted to challenge the tech by requesting a concept for Persona 6. While it certainly scraped the internet for information based on the franchise, it adapted quite well with some tweaks added.

Here’s my initial query and ChatGPT’s response;

Can you write a concept on what Persona 6 could be?

Dash Writes

Persona 6 could be a game that takes place in a city where people's emotions are controlled by a mysterious entity. The protagonist is a high school student who, along with their friends, discover that they have the power to summon Personas - powerful beings that represent their inner emotions.

The city is plagued by dark, destructive emotions that are taking over its inhabitants and causing chaos. With the help of their Personas, the protagonist and their friends must navigate the city, delving into the subconscious minds of its citizens to find the source of these negative emotions and put an end to them.

Gameplay would involve exploring the city, building relationships with characters, and fighting against shadow versions of people's inner emotions in turn-based battles. The player would have the ability to switch between different Personas in battle, each with their own unique skills and abilities.

The game would also feature a social link system, where the player can form bonds with other characters and increase the power of their Personas. These bonds would also reveal more about the characters' backgrounds and motivations, adding depth to the story.

Persona 6 would continue the series' tradition of mixing psychological and supernatural elements, as the player delves deeper into the minds of the citizens and uncover the truth behind the mysterious entity that controls their emotions. With complex characters, challenging battles, and an engaging story, Persona 6 could be a captivating and thought-provoking addition to the Persona franchise.

ChatGPT

Not bad, right? Well… maybe a little underwhelming, as I took it for the AI simply scraping Wikipedia for Persona 5’s basic plotline. I mean, Persona’s franchise follows a basic formula throughout its history; a high school transfer student befriends person, stumbles into alternate reality controlled by a mysterious figure that coincidentally becomes the antagonist and grows their party with more playable characters over time, turn based combat, demons, demi-gods, etc. So in return, I wanted a little more from ChatGPT and thought that I may have asked for too much… however;

Could you elaborate on its story?

Dash Writes

The story of Persona 6 begins with the protagonist and their friends discovering that they have the ability to summon Personas, powerful beings that represent their inner emotions. At first, they see this as a cool party trick, but they soon realize that something is not right in Euphoria City.

As they begin to explore the city and its districts, they start to notice that people's emotions are being controlled by a mysterious entity. The city is plagued by negative emotions, causing widespread destruction and chaos. People are becoming more aggressive, paranoid, and irrational, and the protagonist and their friends begin to fear for their safety.

The protagonist and their friends decide to investigate the source of these negative emotions and put an end to them. They discover that the entity controlling the emotions is a powerful and malevolent being known as the "Shadow," and that it is using the emotions of the city's inhabitants to fuel its power.

As they delve deeper into the minds of the city's residents, the protagonist and their friends come to understand the true nature of the Shadow and its motivations. The Shadow is a manifestation of the collective unconscious, drawing upon the negative emotions of the city's inhabitants to increase its power.

The protagonist and their friends must confront the Shadow and put an end to its control over the city. But to do so, they must also confront their own emotional struggles, as they come to understand the true nature of their powers and the heavy burden that comes with them.

The story of Persona 6 will be a journey of self-discovery and growth for the protagonist and their friends. As they navigate the emotional landscape of Euphoria City and delve into the subconscious minds of its residents, they will learn more about themselves, the world around them, and the nature of emotions.

ChatGPT

That’s better, and holy crap. That in itself is pretty elaborate and distinct. It follows the trend that was suspected of a Persona concept mixing in original facets into the plot, rather than lifting pieces from past Persona entries. It certainly is intriguing how concise it can be from single word responses. ChatGPT will pose a deep question to how certain educational tools may capitalise or innovate upon concepts divulged. Impressed, I still wanted to see a more precise description of the game’s summary with character names and gameplay.

Can you tell me about the story, change the setting to Tokyo and name all characters involved?

Dash Writes

Certainly! Here's a brief overview of the story for Persona 6 with the new character names:

The story of Persona 6 takes place in Tokyo, a bustling metropolis where strange occurrences have started to take place. Taro Nakamura, the protagonist, along with their friends Haruka, Kenji, Aiko, Takeshi, Sakura, and Rio, soon find themselves embroiled in a supernatural mystery that threatens to consume the city.

As they delve deeper into the darkness, they discover that the source of the disturbances is a mysterious entity known as The Empty, which is manipulating the city and its residents. With the help of Yoriko, the mysterious being who guides them on their journey, Taro and their friends must unlock the secrets of The Empty and put an end to its evil machinations.

Along the way, they will encounter Detective Renji Saito, a young detective who is investigating the strange events in Tokyo, and Doctor Aya, a psychologist who helps Taro and their friends understand the true nature of The Empty and their powers. They will also encounter Igor, the guardian of the Velvet Room, who will help them to unlock the full potential of their Personas, the powerful beings that they can summon to fight against the shadows.

The journey will be long and challenging, but Taro and their friends are determined to save Tokyo and defeat The Empty. Only by working together and facing their fears can they hope to uncover the truth and put an end to the darkness that threatens their home.

ChatGPT

Sounds like an JRPG I would love to play. It’s eerily perfect for the franchise, and with some proper influence and adjustments, could be prime material to landing a fantastic sequel. Now of course, the one thing a Persona title needs is a tagline, and while I asked ChatGPT to generate one, it gave me a lengthy subtitle and a descriptive blurb for it, so it became a back and fourth to get the application to shorten it;

What would the game's tagline be?

Dash Writes

The tagline for Persona 6 could be: "Unleash Your Inner Power and Face Your Fears in Tokyo's Battle Against The Empty."

This tagline captures the central themes of the game: the journey to uncover the secrets of The Empty, the need to unlock the full potential of the protagonist's Persona powers, and the importance of facing one's fears in order to save the city of Tokyo. The tagline also hints at the personal growth that Taro and their friends will experience as they embark on this journey, and the role that the Personas will play in helping them to overcome their obstacles.

ChatGPT

Could you shorten that?

Dash Writes

Certainly! Here's a shorter version of the tagline for Persona 6:

"Unlock Your Power, Face Your Fear: The Battle for Tokyo Against The Empty."

ChatGPT

Shorter?

Dash Writes

Sure, here's an even shorter version of the tagline:

"Unlock Your Power. Face Your Fear. Save Tokyo."

ChatGPT

Shorter.

Dash Writes

How about this shortened version of the tagline for Persona 6:

"Unleash Your Power, Face The Fear."

ChatGPT

Shortest.

Dash Writes

Here's the shortest possible version of the tagline for Persona 6:

"Face Your Fear"

ChatGPT

And of course, what is a Persona game without an awesome theme song?

Could you write lyrics for a theme song to Persona 6, by Ro Panuganti, and Music by Shoji Meguro titled "Face Your Fear"?

Dash Writes

Sure, here are some lyrics for a theme song for Persona 6 called "Face Your Fear" by Ro Panuganti and Music by Shoji Meguro:

Verse 1:
In the heart of Tokyo
A force we cannot ignore
We've got to face our fear
And find the strength to fight once more

Chorus:
Face your fear, unlock your power
We'll stand tall in the darkest hour
With the Persona by our side
Together we'll save Tokyo, we won't hide

Verse 2:
We are the chosen ones
With powers we never knew we had
But now we must rise to the occasion
And face the fear that we've never seen before

Chorus:
Face your fear, unlock your power
We'll stand tall in the darkest hour
With the Persona by our side
Together we'll save Tokyo, we won't hide

Bridge:
We'll fight together, we'll stand as one
Against the darkness, under the sun
With our Personas, we'll bring the light
To the battle against The Empty, we'll win this fight

Chorus:
Face your fear, unlock your power
We'll stand tall in the darkest hour
With the Persona by our side
Together we'll save Tokyo, we won't hide

Outro:
Face your fear, face it now
With the Persona, we'll show the crowd
That we're strong, that we're brave
Together we'll defeat The Empty, we'll save.
