The Backlog: Persona

Default Prime's Charles Battersby writes: "The Shin Megami Tensei series puts out games faster than people can play them. Between the core series and the various spin offs, all of which take about 100 hours to play, I don’t see how anyone can stay up to date on the franchise. They all have something to do with stylish Japanese teenagers fighting demons… or making friends with demons… or something. It has a hard-core following who just love doing whatever it is they do in these games, but I never got into the franchise, and each new installment just makes me feel more daunted about dipping my toe into the series. " (Persona 3, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 3: FES, PS2, PS3, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable)

The series doesnt put out games fast is the point. In this entire gen theres been 3 new ones. Thats it.

havok is right, and its one of the best series out there by far and your just scared to play them because you have to be smart to do it.

It's really not that hard to get into. just buy a freaking game and play it.

My first Persona- and first ATLUS game- was P3:FES. I fell in love. Naturally, I had to get my hands on P4 afterward, which is as awesome. Enjoyed Strange Journey, I'm loving P3P, and DDS, Nocturne, and Devil Summoner 2 are all great.

Persona 3 seemed a little intimidating at first, with a much darker tone than I was used to, but I said screw it and went for broke. Just play to enjoy yourself, and you won't be overwhelmed.
