I need to find the one guy who told me Gatekeepers is the BEST THING EVAR and headbutt his mum.

A fan of anime / manga and JRPGs who does not like Persona? This is a bit of a rarity.

Naturally, Starchy, that raises the question: If Persona is not your JRPG bag, what normally is?

I like your more traditional Fantasy Fair.

The early Final Fantasy games like 4, 5 and 6... that's right I don't like 7 or 8 that much either. Too steampunky and contrived for my tastes. Maybe the remake of 7 will change my mind. However, I do adore the original Xenogears as well as the Mass Effect Trilogy.

I really like/prefer the tactical type of RPGs too. Final Fantasy Tactics, The Shinning Force series, especially Shinning Force and Shinning Force 2.

I also love the Disgaea series as well. It's where my username comes from. It's tactical, over-the-top, and hilarious.

I am currently playing the recently released steam/pc version of Grandia II in HD.

I also liked the Breath of Fire, Golden Sun and Fire Emblem games as well. Plus a couple of games in the Suikoden series are good.

I tried to get into the Phantasy Star series back on Genesis, but it never quite got me. I do respect those games though.

I've played just about every RPG series just because it's been my favorite genre since I was a kid. I lost interest in the Persona series even though I have attempted to play it on numerous occasions. It's just not my cup of tea. I also just can't absorb all the hype and pandering associated with it. Don't get me wrong. I get why Persona is popular, I just personally think it's poop-tastic and not for me and I am tired of people trying to convince me otherwise.

I see, I see. Can definitely tell that you and I are from the same generation of gamers.

*ponders*

Persona might not be your thing, but you might be a good candidate for enjoying the mainline Shin Megami Tensei games (... if you do not mind the ball-breaking difficulty). Devil Survivor comes to mind, too.

However! To stay on topic, never, ever watch any of the SMT anime series (e.g. Tokyo Revelation), as they are pretty terrible.
