Ok so I’m torn so I wanna ask people who have played the series should I Get Soul Hacker or Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker? Or should I go back and play Devil Survivor 1?

Get into devil survivor, 1 has better story but 2 has better gameplay, the plot isn't connected so it's your choice, you might want to get both eventually, they're great games.

Soul Hacker is downright terrible, gameplay is atrociously mindless, nearly at a Dragon Quest level of tedious.

Don't listen to this. It's very outdated, but an interesting game. Plus it's not as good as any Dragon Quest game and his comment automatically means I wouldn't take any advice on JRPGs from him.

Will do, they are both $20 and I get $20 every two weeks so I’ll pick up 2 I only asked about one cause I assumed they where connected but Gamestop.com was very vague can you tell me the story and gameplay? (Without spoilers please)

Ever heard of Wikipedia?

Get Devil Survivor Overclocked, it's probably in my top 5 games of all time.
Record Breaker might be better, but I say start with overclocked.
You should also consider SMT IV Apocalypse.

Strange Journey Redux next year.
Aside from that, IV is a good place to start.

Soul Hackers is good, but definitely outdated.
However, DQ is awesome.

Ya I'm actually wanting to get into the series as a whole, cause this came about from my recent Playthrough of Persona Q. Q made me want to watch the anime and play the other games and people said if I liked Persona then I would like SMT
