So I am playing through Persona 4 golden and I got persona 1-3 on my vita ready to be played. I already finished strange journey loved it.

I think the DDS game are rarer but I say get Nocturne.

DDS is basically extras on top of Nocturne's battle system (for the most part), so I suggest Nocturne first. Overall, it's more difficult throughout the entire game but DDS's superbosses are more difficult by comparison.

All three titles have gotten very cheap. Check Amazon/EBay.

Under normal circumstances I wouldve preferred DDS due to a larger focus on story/characters but I actually preferred Nocturne. Demon fusing was a big part of the reason and DDS was hurt by the lack of fusion. I think it even made the random battles more tolerable as the random battle rate killed me in DDS but I was fine in Nocturne despite the rates being around the same.

If fusion isn't huge for you, get DDS. I wasn't terribly impressed by DDS's story but YMMV. I think DDS1 has the best OST of all three games too, though all are great. Nocturne has some BAD battle music compression btw...

Neither of them are rare these days (unless you have a thing against reprints for some reason); you can buy each of the games on Amazon for $20 new now.

Each has its own strengths, so... if you prefer X, play Y:
- gameplay: Nocturne
- story and cinematics: Digital Devil saga
