Is Persona (especially 3 & 4) more popular than the mainline SMT?

Considering that i hear more about it than the rest of the SMT games besides Nocturne and maybe Strange Journey, I've been wondering if this is the case. A spin off series being more popular than the main series of a franchise, interesting. :P

Yes, anyone that think it isn't is a fool but imo opinion they're popular for the wrong reasons and thanks to them we keep getting stupid topics asking for social link in SMTIV.


Also the title should say excluding 1/2 cause they hate those games.

3 and 4, definitely. Or should I say, only 3 and 4.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Persona 3 and 4 are much more popular than the other SMT games. Personally I like them, but the more traditional SMT games are by far my favorites, especially Digital Devil Saga and Nocturne.

Only 3 and 4, most Persona fans don't give a damn about 1 and 2 because no dating elements.

I like the games and all but the fanbase needs to shut the hell up about getting Persona elements into other SMT games. Especially social links.

My theory on this is Persona 1 and 2 along with the mainline SMT are actual RPGs which is the problem. Persona 3 and 4 are mostly story driven social sims with a little bit of RPG gameplay here and there.

Eh, my only complaint about that image is that it generalizes both fanbases, they both have cool people and bad apples.

I Loled at the image of Cena with the Atlus logo on his shirt looking all manlyXD. Also offtopic but funny thing about him is that He has stated before in the past(dont remember where) that he is a huge Hokuto No Ken(Fist of the north star) fanboy, so in a way the fact that he represents the "manly" SMT fans in the photo is pretty funny.
