    Default A question for all Shin Megami Tensei players

    So I just finished playing Devil Summoner: RK for the PS2 and I thought it was enjoyable (Quite honestly, I got the game because I liked Raidou's character design and wanted to play a non-turn based RPG. I'm going to start on my second play through on hard mode still).

    But now that I got introduced to the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, I'm wondering which one I should try out next of these three:

    SMT: Nocturne
    Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2
    Persona 3

    I know that they are all turn based, but I don't mind at all. I'm planning to buy all of them in the future, but I just want a recommendation in what I should try next.


    A joke between my sister and I... Don't mind me.

    All of them are good but since I've only finished playing Persona 3, I'd recommend it. Good storyline, adorable main character, social links available and you can fuse personas.

    Nocturne is damn hard. If one of your characters die, it's game over and yes there are several one hit kill moves that the enemies use. I liked it the best because it drove me insane. You have to recruit demons which is pretty different from most RPG games where characters just join your party but since you just played SMT: DV, it's not that odd to you.

    DDS has a decent plot and is something you should try to hunt down. The second game is a direct sequel so make sure to finish the first game [do take note of the couple of important decissions you make in the first game that determine whether or not you get a character in the second title]. Gotta love the Embryon uniforms. . .

    Persona 3 kicks butt. The combat is on par with DDS but the added school life element makes this game in the series more enjoyable. Since this is the most recent of the games, you could probably find a copy much easier.

    All of the games are good but I liked Nocturne the most.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I'll try to get Persona 3 or the Digital Devil Saga series first before tackling Nocturne, since it seems to be the hardest of the games. Gotta get used to the SMT turn-based system before diving into Nocturne.

    I'll probably end up switching between Devil Summoner and whatever game I buy if I get tired (or if I die often) of the game. I dunno why I like Devil Summoner so much since I heard it was the weakest of the series. XD
