What are your thoughts on the old games. Do u think they are better or worser. Place thoughts here
The old games are what captured my attention in the first place. The new ones have better graphics. But as a whole old/new they are all great!
Could you be a bit more specific? If you mean like SMT 1 and Kyukaku Tensei, or Turn Based or Press Turn
What u mean with old???
SMT 1 and 2 for Snes?
And Persona 1 and 2 for ps1?
If u mean these games i think all of them are excellent games,principally Snes Smt 1 and Persona 2 in my opinion.
But i prefer Persona 3,4 and 5 and Ps2 games(Dds and Nocturne).
I started with SMT 1 for snes, but I can hardly say that the old ones are the best. They have that weird and creepy feeling that only the old SMT/Persona games have, but the new ones improved a lot and they are a lot more fun to play trough with the enhaced mechanics and art style
If what you mean by old and new is a change in tone for the series that would mean the split would have been after P3 and before P4. After P4 was when the series as whole had a slightly larger focus on friendship. The games that came before this theoretical split is that yes while the characters where there to mainly show you the games alignment and did not get much character development. But this would not take into effect the Raidou games where the theme of the game was not friendship but by the end of the games those that were your enemies became neutral towards you and your goals save for the games main antagonists. But when it comes to the DDS games there was a emphasis on Serph and his alies relationships and emotional development the games did not end with a power of friendship plot ending. So according to my understanding of your question the new games would be the ones that pull such endings. But while SMT IV does have the characters seem to be genuine friends until their ideals tore them apart. The ending does not pull a friendship ending. This is just my understanding of what you were talking about.
If it’s the change in tone, I like it, most of the characters seem like genuine friends. The characters themselves seem almost real, and I really like it. Do I think the whole power of friendship things is annoying? At times, yes it is. But once in a while isn’t bad
I find the new smt easier to get into than the old smt as I like the story of persona 2 and devil summoner soul hacker but hate some of the game mechanics
What do you think?
