    Modern Atlus is irredeemable trash
    Persona 4's success changed them
    SMT4 was the last great project before they just hit the wall

    They're going to use the same formula because nothing went wrong and P5 was their best-selling product.

    Are the persona games linked? I bought 3fes for my PS2. Thought about buying the PS1 games but they're going for like 300 fricking dollars. Just gonna emulate em but can I safely play 3 without fricking with 1 and 2?

      They aren't directly linked as long as you stick to the mainline, numbered entries. It's the spinoffs that usually do crossover shit that assumes you've played more than one (and usually just the nu-sonas from 3 onward). Though all of them typically pepper in some "REMEMBER THIS, KIDS?" references that'll probably whiz over your head.

              This but unironically. Persona was an unremarkable series before 5 came along and stirred the JRPG stick to the point that it's giving FF a run for its money.
              And the seething Atlus community can die mad about it. Make way for our new Atlus overlords, down with Square Enix.

        1 and 2 are

        They are separate games with new characters. They share motifs and mechanics. There are some references to previous games that are neaf easter eggs proving they’re in the same universe, but nothing significant. In the fourth game you visit the school from the third game, for example.

        Thanks. I've been on a huge megaten kick. Played all the SNES games and am working through Nocturne at the moment. Also got digital devil saga coming too

          What are your opinions on SMT I and II? I've been meaning to try them, though it wouldn't be until after VV and Shadow of the Erdtree.

            They're great, I would highly recommend them, and if you like them then try Kyuyaku Megami Tensei for the SNES too. It's a remake of megami tensei 1 and 2 from the nes

      1, 2, Devil Summoner and SMT:if... are. 3 onwards are not outside of one or two references and DLC.

        I wish there was a fan translation of demon summoner. Any of you guys watch the weird live action show with poor CGI Jack Frost?

      Yes

      But I guess since the guy behind 1 and 2 left they don't touch his stuff so you can start with 3 if you want skip some older games

      Also the side games are canon I believe so you get stuff like the cast of 3 meeting the cast 4 and probably eventually the cast of 5

    The series wasn’t gatekept after Persona 4’s success brought in all the tourists. I have no hope it’ll be better.

    It's been 8 years and they're still jerking off spin-offs and demakes instead of making a new game.
    >And why do you think P6 is going to fix it?
    By definition, P6 would be a new game. But knowing modern Atlus it'll just feel like an AI generated rehash of the previous games.

            I have genuinely never played a more boring game. I stopped looking at the screen during combat because it genuinely didn't seem to matter what buttons I pressed in combat.

    Replaying through 5 now and also first time playing royale. It's funny to remember the entire first 2/3rds of the game is you telling Sae what you did for a year.

    I've only played vanilla P5 and it overstayed it's welcome by about 40 hours. I can't even begin to imagine what a slog it would be to finish Royal.

    Story went to shit after kamoshida. Confidents were okay. Story is le high school teenager doing rebellious things.
    >How can P6 fix it?
    By making the characters suffer actual consequences for their actions and so having a more intricate story than just adults bad.

    I'm going to get P6, but if a single character complains about adults I'm going to immediately drop it. I'm just too old and it's too embarrassing for writing like that to be in video games that I play.

      to be fair the both adults were sex predators in positions of power (Teacher, Politician)

      The game just falls flat after that and all the characters are 1 dimensional and stale.

    P5 haters are the worst kind of contrarian homosexuals, honestly. I played 3R first, then 5R, then 4G, and they are all 10/10. Claiming to like 3 or 4 but you don't like 5 is literally being contrarian for the sake of being contrarian and you should all have a nice day
    4G is the best btw.

      They are from other jealous JRPGs fandoms. The 95 metascore really fricked up their minds and made them obsessive with shitposting about the game.

        They're fricking homosexuals, Im a huge trailsgay but I can still recognize greatness. Though after marathoning p3-5 it has taken over the top spot, maybe if trials ended after Ao I would think differently though

        Nothing went wrong and P6 will improve on it
        UNLESS they start doing gay shit to please the west. Then we'd have a real problem

        This is my biggest fear. Metaphor will probably be a good gauge of what to expect
