Carl Williams writes, "The Persona series was a huge gamble for Atlus, at least in North America. We did not get any of the Shin Megami Tensei games (Persona in Japan) for the Nintendo or Super Nintendo or Game Boy, etc. The first game in this extremely long running series to hit North American shores was Revelations: Persona. Back in the day, I passed on Revelations: Persona in favor of Konami’s Vandal Hearts (I am a turn based strategy game nut). Over the last couple of decades though, I have worked to correct my rash decision that day and can safely say, Persona is a pretty damn cool series. Today, way back in the year 2000, North American gamers were treated to Persona 2: Eternal Punishment on the Sony Playstation."
