Are RPGs like Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga I and II becoming obsolete?

Oprainfall writes: "There are countless things to say about the Digital Devil Saga games, and there are various opinions on these games concerning many aspects. Each of these different aspects of the games will be taken into consideration, and bring me to a very sad conclusion indeed; the reality that many of us RPG fans have been facing during this generation is a disappointing one.[...]RPGs have become ridiculously rare; good ones even rarer still. Digital Devil Saga is an RPG that stands out among its kind. Let’s take a look at how this is, and why…" (PS2, Shin Megami Tensei , Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga, Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2)

Oh man I can't argue with that...though Nocture still holds a special spot in my heart.

There is no best in the SMT series, they are all masterpieces even the games that aren't made by Atlus but are SMT related such as P4 Arena are great.

they aren't any more obsolete than the slew of crap final fantasy games that have been coming out.

unfortunately a bunch of idiots are what the new gen of gamers has become, so yes actual good games are becoming obsolete

Are they becoming obsolete?

As much as I love the games, it's not like they've ever seen masses of popularity. And, in fact, the SMT series seems to have seen more popularity in recent years than ever before.

As for rpgs in general, they're as popular as ever, if not moreso. It just so happens that most of the best games in the genre(MOST, not all) are on handhelds, and the majority of those haven't made it West and probably won't. After all, there are nearly as many handhelds out there as consoles, and development costs are considerably cheaper. Couple that with the fact that most rpg devs aren't very big in the first place, and it makes sense for there to be more on handhelds than consoles.

It'd be really nice if people would keep these things in mind before they ask this question.

I want to try those two but I'm not sure about the quality. I heard they aren't good.
