In particular, Persona 3 and 4, two of the best games of the last ten years, completely won me over, and gave me a budding interest in the rest of the games that share the MegaTen name. Though it has become a critical darling since 2007, the Persona series is really just a spin-off of the main Shin Megami Tensei line, with the last of those games, Nocturne, being released in 2004. The next SMT title, DS exclusive Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, is a return to the traditional dungeon-crawling of the pre-Persona 3 days, but a sci-fi story and setting should set this apart from any other game under the SMT name. It's hard to get a solid impression of a 40-50 hour role-playing game from a 30-minute presentation, but from what I saw today, it looks like both diehard and new MegaTen fans have something to look forward to next spring."
