To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they stuck to handhelds exclusively.  SMT's biggest market is Japan, and consoles are dead in Japan.  The only things really worth developing in that market are DS and PSP games.

Good point. But considering the popularity of the persona series in the west, wouldn't a console game still be worth it?

I'm very, very tempted to buy a XBOX360 because of the new RE5 bundle. The price is VERY attractive considering everything that's in the package. But I want to know Atlus' next move regarding the SMT series. What if I buy a xbox and they release Persona 5 or SMT4 exclusively for the PS3? That would suck. A lot.

Digital Devil Saga 2 is nowhere near as effective without the character development portrayed in DDS1. The storyline of DDS1 might seem somewhat small once the series segways into the second game, but really, you need to experience it. The exposition helps tremendously.

It's entirely mandatory in my opinion.

I second that. Definitely.

It's hard to describe exactly what makes nocturne so great. I guess you really feel you're part of that world and that you can make a huge difference in it. And what a fascinating world it is. I replayed it recently and enjoyed it even more than the first time. I really like the wole concept.
At the beginning you're having a normal day with your friends and end up being one of the few survivors of the end of the world. Seing how those characters developed, the vision they had for the new world, the methods they used to aquire the power to accomplish it, the way you could shape your relation with them through the course of the game, choose sides or restore the world back to normal. or being mocked by the god of that world and deemed unworthy or just becoming the friggin' lord of the underworld taking lucifer's place, the way the game puts all of that into your own hands, is what makes it so great.

My first SMT game was Nocturne. I loved it and had to check out the other games in the series. The DDS games came very close to Nocturne in my favorite games ever list.
When I saw the first screens and videos of P3 I was surprised by how different it was. But somehow it appealed to me and I gave it a shot. Right now P3 and P4 are in my top 3 favorite games ever.
I enjoyed Raidou and am looking forward to the sequel. Just read your review and I'm glad that the game is such a huge improvement over the first one.

Best series on the the best console ever. I think that says it all.

First on my list would be xenogears. Screw the FF7 remake, give me Fei and Elly with cutting edge graphics.

Panzer dragoon saga... I doubt anyone spend more time with that one than I did. I wish that series would get the recognition it deserves. I wish the ending had more closure since there will be no direct sequel. It's unreal how much saturn owners had to suffer, especially outside of japan.

I'll always remember those first pics of grandia and dead or alive. Finally we could look forward to games that were just as good as the best playstation games. To add insult to injury, not only did these games stay in japan, later they were converted to the playstation and released worldwide.
I bought the console for virtua fighter 3, nights and sonic extreme, all promised by sega shortly after the machine released. You probably know what happened with sonic extreme. VF3 could be played on the dreamcast a few years later... At least nights was great...
Off topic, I know but when I get started on the 32 bit era I can't shut up. And yes, I ended up joining the PS wagon.
