popularity wise. Now according to some people Persona 4=Final Fantasy VII, the madness of it all.

Fact: all fanbases are unpleasable, deal with it.

I would say P3 = FFVII and P4 = FFX

7 and 10 were mainstream milestones for Final Fantasy imo.

I think VII and X are very similar in the sense that they drew so many new people to the series, and those fans decided to call it the best FF ever thus being labeled as fanboys, not for their love for he game but for their ignorance to other FFs.

I understand the point you are trying to drive, but it still almost made me throw up in my mouth (not literally of course).

Persona 4 = Persona 4. You can't even compare the huge amounts of hatred some people have for FF7 combined with the same level of fanboyism that goes on for FF7 to anything in the Persona series. Persona 3 was realized to be a repetitive game with most of the really good bits crammed in the end. Whereas people continually saw how Persona 4 flowed from beginning to end with a continual build rather than cramming it all in the last hour.

Imagine if every new Persona game became the most hated, just like FF. I strongly doubt it.

I don't think Persona and FF can compare, even popularity-wise. I mean.
it's the series that opened up the way to JRPGs worldwide. As popular as Persona is now, it's nowhere near as big as FF was in the PS1 era.

And likely when there is something newer the flaws of this game will become much more magnified.

A process that repeats time and time again.

In terms of popularity, I don't think they can be compared. Not much people recognize Persona yet. A majority of the gaming world know the existence of FF, even if they haven't played it. I can't say the same for Persona. However, they definitely made a mark with P4G

in terms of setup, at first I was hesitant, but if I look at how they are being marketing, I would have to agree that they are very similiar, but towards FFVII and FFX.

FFVII/P3: Both have many cash cows. Sequels/Prequels vs Remakes/Fan Service

FFX/P4: Both have a sequel that many hate or love. With FFXHD coming, hopefully, they would both be the same; almost
