How can P4G be the best game ever when it's not even the best SMT game?

When the hell did Shin Megami Tensei become so popular that it has its own group of hipsters and anti-hipsters?


SMT hipsters existed before P3 was announced. It just took the creation of a massively popular "branch" in the franchise to bring in a wave of new fanbase for the original hipsters to lord over. This is how things normally work, isn't it?

Though, it's easy enough to see things from a hipster's perspective. Most of the new fanbase doesn't even bother paying tribute to the older parts of the franchise, thus they only focus on what's popular, rather than looking at what in the franchise is great.

To me it's the same as people who say Dark Side of the Moon is the best classic rock album and then admit it's not even the best Pink Floyd album.

Main line SMT will always be better. Persona is great too, though.

Persona games in general are more fun for me but Nocturne was best SMT games I've ever played.

I agree partially. I personally hate the P series since they went dating sim and random dungeons. The series that got me into the SMT world (P1 on PS1) has become my least favorite. SLinks...blah

However, it's because of this that Atlus and SMT is getting any press whatsoever. Ill settle for anything. As long as Atlus throws us a bone aka SMT4 on the 3DS then ill be content.

Persona is lame and the fanboys are reaching FF status. Go back to your dating sim and let the RPG guys do their thing.

Persona 4 scored so well across the board it reminded me of an Asian Kid highschool report card.

Ive played and finished every SMT game released in NA and the Persona series is better IMO the the main SMT series and Persona 4 is the best in the Persona series. Its not the best game ever, but for right now it comes pretty close. Nocturne was good but has alot of slow and kinda boring parts. Digital Devil Saga series was ok, really picked up toward the end of part 2 for me. Persona 1 was good, Persona 2 and 3 were very good, Persona 4 was great. Devil Summoner (PS2 series) were very fun. It remined me of Pokemon for some reason but with more mature themes, great games. Devil Survivor series were also very good for SRPGs. Strange Journey was so so for me. Cant wait to play Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers on 3DS to see how good that one is. See, ive said what ive though all of the SMT ive played and Persona 4 is the best to me. Its called opinion, different people have different ones.
