Shin Megami Tensei
Posted 6/20/08
The only thing I liked about P3 (besides a couple of those songs) is the demon system. No demon conversations or anything, just grab those cards and then go to the velvet room and combine them haahah.

SMTI+II was too hard and random to get demons (I don't know about SMTIII (nocturne)), and getting Tarot cards just takes forever in P2.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Demon conversations and don't think they should be taken out, but they do waste a lot of time when you know exactly what you need to say and just wish you could get the stuff instantly.

Not to say that I hated the rest of P3, but a lot of that stuff got old really quick (going to the same locations every day just to get a little stat increase, etc.) I also don't think the conversations were really cool or deep like P2:EP (I guess because they were school kids).

ps2 version...graphic sucks...story sucks...only the battle style and how you can choose status of your characters is what i liked



Hmm. I actually liked the look of the game a lot and I thought the story was interesting with the feuding tribes plus the whole "search for paradise" thing and then "holy hell--! All that for nothing!" :D

To each his own, I guess.

Persona 3 is awesome. Sooo worth the wait. I'll always be curious about Persona 2...I don't think I'll ever be able to play it.


Well..there are things you can download to play Persona 2 on your computer...but shh you didn't hear it from me

I used to be a HUGE megaten fan back in the day, but I've recently begun to dislike the series after the recent iterations.

I was a huge fan of the old games like Persona 2. Nocturne was the last game in the series I really liked.

DDS was ok, but I wasn't a fan of the melodramatic, character based story and especially the lack of demon conversations. I could tell that this is where the series began really going for a mainstream audience.

Devil Summoner was a cool idea as I love action RPGs, but just too simplistic.

Don't even get me started on Persona 3. P3 painted Japan as some magical land where kids get superpowers to fight the generic bad guys and use the power of friendship to get stronger. I kid you not, the power of friendship. It was at that moment that I said "screw it, megaten is dead to me" and went to Fallout for my dark rpg fix.


Well, Persona is kinda set in america, in america at least, they changed it to american style because they thought we wouldnt play persona if they didnt make the kids look more white, then add in a black kid. Also, I don't get how teenagers shooting themselves in there head is kiddy, but whatever.

Persona 2 (Eternal Punishment in particular) is a great game, my favorite ps1 rpg. Very mature cast of characters, very large city to explore (the city has 5 or so districts, each with a few locations in them), very indepth demon conversation system etc... I love it. Only thing is that it's hella hard. I still haven't beaten the 2nd to last dungeon (I youtube'd the end, heh).

I meant just demon conversations. DDS itself had plenty of dialog, probably more than Nocturne.

I would reccomend you try the reeeeeeeally old megaten games, like Shin Megami Tensei 1 and 2. Many of them never saw official US release because Sony of America is full of raging assholes, but fan translations have come out for a few, and some are still being worked on.

Fallout is post-apocalyptic RPG series about, well wandering about the world after it gets nuked. You can basically do whatever you want, murder people, become a drug dealer, etc... it's got even more freedom than GTA, but has more emphasis on story. It's also got a got a hella fun battle system.



Hmm, so there was two Persona 2 titles? Eternal Punishment and Innocent Sin. One was released and one wasn't right due to some "questionable" content? I heard one had Hilter as a character featured in the game, is that true or did I hear wrong? :O

People in the US are still up in arms about the stupidest things. It's all about controversy.

Sounds intriguing. I'll have to read up about it some more.

Persona 3 was kind of a 'Happy' game. Happier then its predecessors anyway.

Yeah, it's Persona 2: Innocent Sin. It was suppose to be released in the U.S. but we were denied due to it having Nazis/Hitler in it and the option of having a gay relationship with the protagonist and another male character.

Instead we got the sequel, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

Yeah I knew that, I was just testing ya :P

Well I knew about Eternal Punishment anyway, and ode to the american government, land of the free, where you can say whatever you like! As long as nobodys feelings get hurt, in other words, just stop talking.
