The people in charge of the story of P3 at Atlus Japan had to make a new script for the Female Protagonist, and with that in mind they made pretty much a brand new story mode that was build up and expanded from the original story of P3.

Also as far as I know the story for the female MC route is not canon.

Hmm maybe for P3P I play the girl MC and watch the movie...will that give me the full experience? I don't think I have the time to play both characters.

Is a good idea to watch the anime of P4 to not play the game? Both are different experiences, and Persona is all about that dense experience that the games offer.

But if you want to save time then that your thing really. *shrug*

TBH, the differences aren't THAT huge. Your going to get the same game story and experience from either side, just go with what you'd rather play as. And in any case, the anime is never a replacement for the video game.

Even if it isn't canon I'll probably opt for the female MC. The anime would only be supplemental. I just don't have the time to do 2 play throughs (self inflicted) as I want to make my way through my backlog of games.

Actually come to think of it, I rarely ever play an RPG twice once I've beaten it. It's a strange habit of mine.

It's not that strange when you consider how much linearity & filler are in most RPGs versus the time commitment each one demands.

The only things you're missing out on by choosing FeMC are a few Social Links.  Let's see...

Exclusive to the male MC
Kenji - annoying student with a crush on his teacher.
Kazushi - athletic student stuggling with a knee injury.
Chihiro - student council treasurer with crippling social anxiety. Romance option.
Maya - MMORPG internet pal.
Keisuke - artistic student who is unsure what he wants concentrate on at university. 
Yuko - sports manager who is unsure about her future. Romance option.
Mamoru - student-athlete at a rival high school trying to support his family.
Nozomi - selfish, overweight student who is a member of a cult. 

Out of all those, my favorite S.Link is Maya, but none of them affect the story in a major way.  And most of the above characters appear in some of the new FeMC Social Links anyway.  Look, pick the character you want to pick.  Like the above posters said, the S.Link content is peripheral and not key to understanding the main story of Persona 3.

Maya was definitely my favorite of the male MC SLs.  Especially during the ending and youknowwhat.

I think FemC has the better Social Links overall. She gets them with all of the party members, even if she does appear a bit like a shotacon.

I think I've played all of 12 RPGs through to completion tbh :TTT

Holy shit! This thread fell off the front page. Better fix it with a post...

http://gematsu.com/2013/11/atlus-usa-launches-mysterious-new-teaser-site

...and a link.

(Granted this is more likely to be about Trauma Center whatever than about a new Persona or SMT but it is sporting the words "Persist 5", "Gold 4", and "Trial 2", so I can't rule the possibility out completely.)

mm, Trauma Centre finally letting you deliver a baby??? :S
I love that series but the later levels stress the hell out of me.

I don't want to look into any announcements till I see a banner that says "P5 Announced!".

But man, it's been some time since P4... And even in the PS2-era they worked beautifully with the hardware so I am excited as to how a PS3 (or 4?) title would look.

Yes, but it's an alien baby that shoots lasers from its eyes and the CIA put a bomb in the mother to destroy it.

Oh yes, I want some more Trauma Center in my life. The Wii U is just perfect for it.
