Is Soul Hackers a good place to start the SMT games?

#1nintendoveteranPosted 1/25/2013 2:30:24 PM
With the news of Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, my interest in the series has increased quite a bit. So I was wondering if that would be a good starting point?

I should go to a board where people discuss things I hate, so I can complain about them. Please take me seriously!

yeah you can do that and preorder it, But in the meantime if you want

Try out Digital Devil Saga if you have a PS2,
or Devil Survivor Overclocked for 3DS

Yeah it would. Also check out Devil Survivor or Strange Journey if you like their gameplay styles (watch a youtube video).

Yeah, it has a casual mode and it's already more forgiven then SJ.

Persona 3 and 4 are SMT games and are two easier games to start with since they aren't as hardcore as say a SMT: Nocturne or SMT: Devil Summoner 2. You'll get quite the gist of how a SMT game works with P3 and P4 at an easier rate as opposed to starting with others.

Just my opinion though.

Don't start with Persona 3 or 4, it'll turn you into a wimp. Just go with Nocturne.

I don't see why it wouldn't be. Although I like to recommend Devil Survivor Overclocked for newbies. It gives new players an idea what megaten is all about. P3/P4 don't really represent the themes all that well. You can say they are the black sheeps.

Nocturne was easier than both IMO (on Normal)...

Unfortunately, your opinion is incorrect.
