            Unless this gets insane review scores, I don't see it selling more than SMT5, along with Atlus getting a wake-up call on why people buy Persona games.

                Judging by the fact that half of the thread says they "grew out of it" these people are playing only for the high school dating sim aspect and not the main gameplay.

                I don't play it for that. I play it for the time management elements and the addictive gameplay loop, which people on Ganker don't seem to realize is a thing because they don't actually play video games.

        It's true. I played P3 when it released. I was in high school then, and I enjoyed the escapism of pretending I could socialize and make friends/gfs at the time because I was a cringey teenager loser. Now I'm a 30+ year old loser of a different type and this shit doesn't appeal to me at all anymore. I feel second hand embarrassment looking at it.

            You mean P4. That was when people started to say it was better than Final Fantasy which made normie RPG fans play it.

            Nah, I mean P5.
            I didn't get into this series until after P5 and I barely heard anything about it until P5 came out and literally everyone was jerking it off.
            I could count the number of times I heard of Persona or even SMT in general on one hand before P5 came out.

                I don't think you know what going mainstream means. Spin-offs are irrelevant.

                >I barely heard anything about it until P5 came out
                Because you were a child when P4 came out.

                How does me being 10 have anything to do with it supposedly going mainstream with P4? Where was all the coverage? Why wasn't everyone in school playing it? Why did I only see a pedo bear video about P4 in like 2010 and then never hear word of this franchise again until half a decade later?

                You might as well be trying to argue FF6 made the series mainstream and not 7.

                FF7 didn't get spin-offs until after FF11 came out.
                P3 also has spin-offs, does that mean it's as big as P4? No.
                Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has it's own NES style spin-offs, is it a mainstream game?

    I played P3 when I was about 16, and played P4 on release. I've not touched the series since, and I'm now 30. I'm just not into anime high school settings and all that nonsense anymore, so I don't care that it's becoming popular.

        it was worse, it was explicitly viewed as degenerate shit for overweight otaku, while the others you could at least justify enjoying
        fatlus was a thing for a reason
        5 was persona's guilty gear strive, people saying it's 4 are coping hard (though obviously it did better than 3)

    Most of these came out on Steam much later than they first launched. I had no idea P3P had a Steam release last year, what the frick is that
    P3R having that low of a count is kind of surprising.
    Also, Persona became mainstream with the launch of P5.

    I wish I played these games sooner. I am PC-fat so I always thought these games was either a shitstation or just console exclusives.
