Does anyone knows about this wonderful franchise, who is willing to talk about it?

Persona 3.

We've all done it.

Or if you haven't, you should have.

You know, there are other games in the SMT series not set in a high school. Nocturne is probably the best dungeon crawler this generation, with a huge degree of customization and a hands-off, unpretentious story that can very quietly creep you out. Digital Devil Saga is probably the best-looking and most accessible of the locally-released games, with a spectacular story and a wide range of customization as well, not to mention the only truly useful optional bosses I've ever seen in an RPG. Devil Summoner was kind of hit or miss, but it was funny, and featured a very original setting. Persona 2: Eternal Punishment has a spectacular story, innovative battle system, and a cool soundtrack.
So, you've played Persona 3. Did you try the others?

Cool, someone who have played the Megaten games of the PSX and PS2 generation, I have played them all, well actually I will play Persona 3 this December 31, to end this year in a cool way.

In other hand, I have played:

SMT, SMT2, SMT if... (including the ones for the snes, gba and psx versions), Majin Tensei 1 & 2, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, Megami Ibunroku Persona, Persona Tsumi, Persona Batsu (my first megaten game, and the best one), Devil Children (all the versions), SMT Nocturne, SMT Devil Summoner Kuzunoha Raidou, SMT Avatar Tuner 2 (I want to play Avatar Tuner 1 :( ).

Of course, I haven´t finished them all, but most of them yes. I am a big fan of this series and of course, the extraordinary work that makes Kazuma Kaneko, with the art of this games.

I played the original SMT. I really dug the idea...I thought it was very atmospheric, and I'm really into Judeo-Christian myth, so I thought that was really cool. I haven't played many of the others, but I probably will soon.
