From a gameplay and visual perspective, not too bad, even the demons arent anything to worry about. For children however, the story and some cutscenes are what id look out for, as they can be emotionally heavy for children, as it goes into suicide, loss, rape, abuse, turmoil, etc.

If GTA is a 10 on the "parental worry scale", Persona would be anywhere from a 5.5-7, depending on how the aforementioned things impact you.

We're going to use shadows to fight shadows right? Doesn't that make the main people the good guys?

This game encourages sex with middle schoolers and student-teacher relations by making said teacher second best girl. Very wholesome family entertainment indeed.
I got a feeling so complicated

These aren't Demons from Christian lore.


Well given that many Christian devil name were taken from the gods of other religions, you could say both yes and no to this. Plus many of the Persona names are taken from the Christian Angelic Choirs from medieval times with the exception of Cherubim and Seraphim. However the names Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel etc are the names of high ranking Christian Arch-Angels who have been identified as being in either the Seraphim or Cherubim ranks.

Some of them are though (Satan, Lucifer, Lilith, Legion, Beelzebub) Most of the angels are also from Christian mythology (Gabriel, Metatron, Melchizedek)

Again, yes, and no.

In Persona you're not usually facing actual demons. Nor do you wield them. You're facing off against shadows, and manifestations of human emotions. Which are different, and usually pulled from the collective unconscious.

It's splitting hairs, but it can make a difference between someone playing mainline, and Persona.

Also, another minor point. Again, it's primarily Abrahamic. I know Christian is the concept most of us are familiar with. But most of these entities' forms reflect their history in regards to Abrahamic faith, not just Christian.
