I wouldn't have included the spin-offs but also 3 is way better than 4. Sure P4 did a lot of things gameplay wise that improved on what P3 was doing but P3 has a way better story and characters. Not saying P4 is bad, I loved it but P3 is easy to go back to when P4 not so much.

P3 also had one of the greatest endings to a game ever

still, i love P4 equally as much, the persona series is just soo good

I agree. I liked P3 more than P4 as well. Both are still great tho.

I have to say I played persona from persona 2 to 4 and I really do think persona 3 is the best between FES&P3P, I'm not going to act like I didn't enjoy 4 but I found the darker story from persona 3 more enjoyable but any way that's my opinion. Last note my steel book copy of persona 5 is on its way I can't wait

Razzer2576d ago

nice to see others like P3 as much as I do.

Pretty good list. Though P3P will forever have a special place in my gaming heart, thus being nr.1 for me.

P3 story can almost best out P4. Unfortunately it looks just way too similar to the anime Evangelion.

Persona 3 Director Says The Game Saved Atlus From Collapsing

The studio was on the verge of collapse when Persona 3 came out, and things were looking quite grim for Atlus. Regardless, many decisions made in the game paid off and became a staggering success.

Years ago, I was emulating the game on my laptop and the old thing died when I was about to get to the final boss. I'm more than happy to buy this remake when it comes out so I can finish it!

At the time I was immersed in SMT Nocturne and later DDS. I did not realize at all how important Persona would become for me years later.

Persona 3 FES was the first one that I played in the series. Looking forward to the remake.

How Persona 3 Retroactively Solves Persona 5's Biggest Problem

Even though Persona 4 and 5 are monumental leaps over Persona 3, a crucial aspect has been lost in the transition.

That's a good point I didn't really think of but it lends to the narrative a lot more than P5 for sure. I also enjoy how much more streamlined the game is and how it doesn't have a 13 hour tutorial.
