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

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.

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


The guy did that on purpose, he said it was a joke.

Wait did persona fans really try to boycott because of a mistreatment of their "waifu" or was it made up for jokes.

I actually want to try SMT and earlier Persona titles. I'm just super lazy to get around to it. XD

I have played EO4 and Trauma Center, so it's not like I support Atlus only for Persona.

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.


That's why I was let down by Persona 3. It was majorly hyped to me by three different people, so I went into it with major expectations. I enjoyed the story a lot, but some of the characters got on my nerves. Maybe they were designed to do so, or that their character just didn't appeal to me.

Both fanbases are terrible, and fighting with each other will do nothing. People make it sound like it's impossible to enjoy both Persona and SMT mainline series.

Yeah I like all the Persona games (even the first one, sure it's flawed but that doesn't mean it's garbage either) and well I don't really hang out at the Persona 3 or 4 boards anymore, but maybe they got worse now then again I never went there to talk about the other SMT games/spinoffs either. I got like re into Persona and into Shin Megami Tensei in full because of Persona 3.

It's not not true either. The only thing not true about this is that both sides are total nerds :P
