I want to get into the Persona series and I do not know which game to start with. Which game should I start with?
>>
>>323002307
Persona 3 FES
>>
>>323002307
Start with persona 3 FES, then play DDS on ps2 or persona 4 [email protected]
>>
It doesn't matter.
>>
>>323002307
People will tell you to play P3 first, that is because Persona 3 is a heap of shit and if you play other games before it that becomes even more apparent.

But really, if you like Persona 3 at all, even if it was the very first jrpg you ever played, your taste is shit and you are beyond redemption.

Persona 4 isn't very good either

Release order fag
start with revelations: perusona and work up to perusona: nocturne

Persona 4 Golden, it's the best in the series anyway and easiest to get into. If you enjoy it you can pick up P3.

Persona 3. I prefer portable, play that if you want it on handheld. FES is very good too.
>>
>>323002957
>Are the first two games any good?
No. The series is all around bad. Go play Dark Chronicle, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden 5, Radiata Stories, Grandia 2 or pretty much ANY jrpg on ps2, they are all better than this shit.
>>
>>323002957
Revelations is a rare game and the psp port is good but dated, persona 2 has a damn good story, but the gameplay has aged worse than 1000 year old spoiled milk
>>
>>323003267
>Suikoden 5,
And this OP, is a shitposter

I went 1, 4, 3 and then 2. Really don't matter.
>>
>>323003412
I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings, I didn't make Persona, it's not my fault they have bad combat, bad dungeons, bad characters, bad pacing and bad stories. I just want OP to play good games instead.

Adachi is the killer, Ikutsuki is evil, Ryoki is death, you harbor death, Nanako gets kidnapped

So you recommend him suikoden 5?

What's next, FF10-2, dragon age 2, quest 64?

Play golden and then skip the rest.

I stopped reading right there. I already knew that and I assume the rest of your post spoils the other persona games so fuck you lol

>P1
It's actually pretty decent. It's a hardcore dungeon crawler though. Play the PSP version if you are into first person dungeon crawlers.

>P2
Awesome characters and setting hidden behind a shit gameplay wall. Only play if you are a hardcore smtfag.

You can start at any one of them, but 3 is one of the greatest jrpgs of all time, so you can't go wrong there
>>
>>323002307
Start with 3 FES or you won't be able to appreciate it after the changes 4 made. In terms of Social Links 4 handles it better. 4 made the simple combat in 3 more simple and I think the combat suffer because of it.

What exactly is bad about 2's gameplay? I'm going to play them all and I kind of want to know what I'm getting into.

So you would think that having 5 characters would be a good thing, giving you more power and options to deal with encounters. What it actually does is slow down the gameplay, also the game can be beaten with the personas they hand out to you, no fusing needed. At least for the first part of 2. Best story though.

Persona 5 hype dropped so hard after that delay.

How much longer do we have to wait?

Pretty much everything. The combat is slow, bland, and easy. Demon negotiation is repetitive and predictable. Fusion uses consumable items for some reason and is largely superfluous. The dungeons are large, boring, and have a high random encounter rate.

Most NES RPGs I've tried have better gameplay.

if you have a PS3, Just get the PS3 version, its going to be exactly the same. I doubt it really matters the extra frames it will have, the graphics don't seem that amazing anyway.
>>
>>323002307
Doesn't matter. They're only connected through minor nods. Play 3 or 4 first. Don't bother about 1 or 2. 4 Golden > The rest.

Why are Physical builds so good?

>People in this thread unironically reccomending P3 first
Yeah, reccomend the new guy the game that literally has no story except "kill the ugly monsters" for 2/3rds of the game. It's better to start with 4 that involves you in the plot from the start and keeps you interested, then when he's got a feel for the games and the Persona world he can move on to P3.

P4's plot and characters are a complete joke compared to P3's. Literally nothing happens for even longer periods of time and only gets good near the end.

Wow, you just described P3 plot in a nutshell. P4 starts out with throwing you right into the action and presenting a mystery you have to solve with the murder case. In P3 you join SEES and explore tartarus for no other reason but "we think this place might have the key to stopping the dark hour". You then spend until summer basically just running around killing shadows. The story doesn't really begin untill 2/3rds in when you kill all the big shadows. You are talking out of your ass.
