Shin Megami Tensei IV: Recapping the Series

Gi - Shin Megami Tensei IV will be here soon and while the SMT franchise has been enjoying success in the states with the Persona and Devil Survivor series. However, the mother ship titles are relatively alien to the West with only a few of the games being officially translated, and even then they mostly flew under the radar. For this reason it feels appropriate to go over the stories and themes introduced in past games so players can have a better idea of what they’re getting into with Shin Megami Tensei IV when it releases on the Nintendo 3DS this July 16. (Culture, Shin Megami Tensei 4)

Greatest Jrpg series ever imo. They may not have Squaresoft money, but Atlus has just as much (if not more) talent than Square did in it's golden years. Don't agree? Then you probably didn't play their amazing games (SMT, Persona, smt spin offs, catherine, etc.)

SMT is a brilliant series, not just about fantasy settings and characters who look like cosplay rejects (like some other jrpg's). It's a series that delves into humanity and spirituality, what it means to be human, to love, to be responsible for other's, to hope and dream. What a brilliant form of interactive Eastern literature!
