Hoping for someone to point me in the right direction for my next SMT game. I'm approaching the end of Persona 3 FES's The Journey. Not sure how long The Answer is but that'll be next.

I've played P4G,P5, Devil survivor 2

Started SMT 4 but had to sell my 3ds (gonna pick up a 2ds and this game eventually)

Tried SMT 3 Nocturne, got like 15 hours in and ran into game ending glitch, so I won't touch that for a long time because it pisses me off looking at that game.

I also started P2 innocent sin but stopped because P5 was about to release and didn't wanna get burnt out of the series. I did enjoy it but I'm gonna stay away from the persona series for a while.

Not a big fan of 1st person dungeon crawlers but I suppose I'd try one.

Anyway if you made it through that mess of a post and can suggest a game that I didn't mention I would appreciate it.

P.S I hope I'm not wrong in assuming there are a decent number of SMT fans on an anime forum.

Edit: Preferably something emulatable (is that a word?). Something on PS1, PS2, NDS, PSP, and maybe I'm forgetting some other console that has SMT games and a functioning emulater.

Digital Devil Saga and Devil Summoner, they are alot more grim than the Persona games.

I know most SMT games aren't like persona. I really liked the vibe ( for lack of a better term) I was getting from nocturrne until it broke.

Which of the 2 do think are better?

Personally I think Digital Devil Saga is better than Devil Summoner.

To be clear I am talking about the PS2 versions with graphics similiar to Nocturne

Are there other versions of those games? I didn't know that.

Yeh there is a SMT Digital Devil game on the Famicon (it's not related to the Ps2 games.
And the Devil Summoner games on Sega Saturn and a remake on the PSP the 2 Ps2 games are prequels to those.

The Famicon and Sega Saturn are the games you specifically didn't want with the first person dungeon crawler style.

Didn't know that. I do know of a ton of SMT games though most of which are PS2 games, that's why I don't know where to go next.

Yeah, kinda disappointed the next SMT game will be a Switch exclusive. Hopefully I can buy one before it gets released.
