Play Persona 3 before P4G?

#1Ep1taph303Posted 3/14/2014 6:46:48 PM(edited)
Just received p4g, but I was just on psn and saw P3P there.. Now I'm thinking I should. Hmm.. Thoughts?

I have played the other games before p3 fyi.

I'd go with 3 first, as the mechanics do improve.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

The mechanics are streamlined in P4, so going back from 4 to 3 is a definite downgrade. Makes it a little annoying, I admit, so you might not want to do it that way.

If you liked the first two Persona games don't bother getting the two other ones as they will suck.


Nonsense.

Id say P3P is really not good enough thou, get P3FES, best one there is if you want to experience the best version of the game.

FES and Portable each have advantages. P3P had better mechanics for buying and equipping weapons and so on, had a female MC option, and is portable. FES had better navigating intown, anime cutscenes and another chapter. I played both, and liked both.

Doesn't P3P also have a battle system more like 4's? In that you can control your party.

When I played through P3P, I never used that feature. I actually did not know if it existed, so I can't say for sure.
