Kinda depends on whether you want an excellent visual novel or an exceptionally hard dungeon crawler...

It depends. The EO games will last you longer,and have more replay ability but 999s story will be in your head for just as long.

I think you should get 999 now. It'll cost about 20 bucks. Then save up your money and get EO4 at the end of February.

As I recall, they're only tangentially related; there's no continuing storyline between the games.

That's correct. They're all stand-alone with only 1 and 2 having a connection. And EO4 will also feature an easy mode, making it the most accessible jumping on point for the series, but if you've played similar games, you'll be able to start on Normal with no problem.

I'd also recommend just waiting for and jumping into EO4. That way the newest (and likely best) EO game will be fully fresh to you, instead of feeling kind of previously experienced if you had just played an earlier game in the series.

999 would be the smartest to pick up right now. It's at a reasonable price (20 bucks) while EO has a much more limited print and is gonna run as much as EO4 coming out or more. Just wait 'til EO4 as it will likely be a more definitive version and a fresh experience, plus an Easy mode if you're a little more inexperienced in these types of games, which can get rather difficult.
