“While the Shin Megami Tensei games remain as popular as ever”

When has the SMT remained popular? It’s still a niche series among other RPGs.

"For many, where they start off plays a big part in which game they consider the best, even if they don’t realize it."

I see this argument for many different series', and it's BS. I can't think of a single "first game in the series that I played" that ended up being my favorite. And, the vast majority of responses in comments sections echoes the same sentiment. I see this as nothing more than trying to find an "excuse" for why someone likes a certain game more than whatever the claimant does. It's the BS "nostalgia" argument, basically.

"it seems clear why fans claim that it is the “objectively best” game"

Even though I agree that 5 is the best, it's asinine when someone claims that it's "objective". No such thing. It's just a way to make one's own opinion feel superior.

I always appreciate a new Persona article. While P3P was my favorite and stood through P4G it did not after P5. P5 is hands down my favorite now.
