The godly Atlus series with immerse popularity worldwide has been mentioned here for so many times that it should have its own thread just like Shin Megami Tensei =)
What is your favorite series?
Have you actually played the first or second? ('cause not many did o.O)
Discuss!

I have plans to buy Persona Golden for the Vita sometime soon. =) I've heard it's a long game and very addicting. Wish I had picked it up when it was $15.99 at GameStop a few months ago uuuug.

It... is more than that =D
I platinumed the game in 2 playthroughs in about 150 hours (120 + 30) without playing anything else so... it IS addicting =D

And as I already said, if someone has Vita... they have to play P4G.

I've actually never played an entry to the Persona series but, I've heard that they're very good and fun! My brother actually was really into it and loved the game series

    Played one on PSP which is Persona 3 Portable. It's very addicting to know how events will turn out. I've captured all the girls there. (God of Conquest is me) Also watched the Persona 4 Animation. What I would like to watch is the Persona 3 Movie :<

      I love P3P, imo best Persona game there is. I cannot wait for five at the end of this(next?) year. Hope it can top 4 and I hope the portable version is even better!

      You can only call yourself Persona God of Conquest if you capture every girl in P4/P4G =D
      Pretty much conquest of main girls is forced in P3 'cause you cannot not go out with them if you want to max their social link =D

      I inevitably watched the anime of Persona 4 before playing the game and then it sort of ruined the experience for me...I already knew the ending and what happens; not entirely sure if it's exactly the same, but the beginning was enough to deter me from continuing \: Also, there was too much dialogue throughout the game. While I'm mindlessly trying to skip through them, there were times when I would miss important questions that had an affect on the game ;___; I wanna try to get myself into the franchise with the 3DS though.

      Well... that's actually good. Because many people did not know who the real culprit is and got bad ending because of that =D

      You shouldn't skip dialogue o.O Dialogue is the main thing of Persona games =D

      Today, Atlus made another big announcement regarding the new 4 Persona games!
      And it's the more important one because it has USA release dates for the games!
      We'll get P4A2 and PQ this year!
      And P5 + P4D will be in the next.
      Anyone excited we get new Personas so soon? :D

        Dude, play the second for sure. It's definitely different and arguably not as good but it's still freakin' awesome. It's not got the life sim aspect of the later games, and more focus on combat; but you still get the quality you'd expect from a Persona game, check it out.

        Not played the first though

        Don't worry, I'm in the middle of Innocent Sin so I'm fully aware of beauty of P2 and as you say, it's more like classical SMT than Persona =)
        I really like the demon negotiations =)

        A new set of videos of PQ cast are revealed!
        http://www.siliconera.com/2014/03/20/persona-q-shadow-labyrinth-puts-naoto-ken-spotlight/

        Is there anyone who is planning to get PQ?
        Because this will be reason for me me to buy a 3DS, I still want the limited Persona 3DS to be brought to US/EU, though :/

        I'll be getting it, along with the other Persona games announced. It'll be nice to have a slice of Persona on my 3DS

        Which reminds me, some of you may be steering away from Persona 4 Arena because it's a Fighting game, and I can understand that, but I recommend it for Labrys' story. It's fantastically written and well executed, so much to the point that I would actually recommend the game for that reason alone. It's really good, and the game's pretty cheap (and it'll probably get cheaper once the sequel comes out).

        And Satoshi, you won't regret getting a 3DS, there's so much goodness on the system that you'll have a lot to occupy you even after you finish PQ.

        Agree with this wholeheartedly. It provides fantastic connection to both P3 and P4.
        And in my opinion most people bought P4A for the story =)

        Atlus decided to put P4 as PS2 classics so even those who do not own Vita and own PS3 can experience Persona 4 story!

        I know you didn't ask me about it, but I changed it to a Megathread for you!

        If you're curious though, if you click "Go Advanced" when editing your OP, you can change the prefix of your thread there. Hence, that's how one can change or add a prefix like say, the Megathread!

        On that note, favorite OPs, anyone? I'm talking about the games or the anime.

        Personally, despite having been a huge fan of P4 and having played P3/P/FES years before this, this one stole my heart:
        Spoiler:

        It's catchy, memorable, and fits the feel of the game (which, if you haven't played Persona 1, is fantastic).

        I kind of wish Persona was more popular, but it is popular for a JRPG anyways.

        I have only played 3 and 4, but i'll probably delve into future persona games. I don't know if I'll ever play the first two.

        It's pretty popular. I mean, of the SMT franchise, it's more popular than any other branch and even the main games. And apart from that, ever since the "Golden Push" a few years ago (which was essentially the push to make Persona 4 Golden popular before release by pushing the franchise into the eyes of the mainstream by creating an anime and the original Persona 4 anime, as well as a Remix Soundtrack) the series has been pretty well known.

        Personally I don't know a lot of gamer friends that know Persona, though to be fair they don't know a lot about JRPGs aside from final fantasy.

        Obviously, if they are casual gamers, they won't know about it.
        But among the JRPG players, it's a very popular series =D

          I realllllyyyy want to buy a Vita, and as soon as I do, a Persona game will be one of the first I buy. I've only ever played Devil Survivor games in the SMT series and thought they were great, so I'm sure I'll be a Person fan as well. 8)
