So...thoughts on the Shin Megami Tensei Franchise?

Well, how do I start this? :uhh:

While I'm technically not a stranger to the SMT franchise (though I'm one of those people who WAS introduced to SMT through the Persona series so uhh...yeah), I was introduced to the franchise as whole through SMTTubers like Nyarly, Fither, and a few hours, but...I just kinda feel like my opinion is kind of...meh because I haven't played ANY of the games (asides from Persona 4 Golden, which I just finished recently on PC, it's...not as good as 3 in terms of everything in my opinion. I still enjoyed it for what it was though. Maybe I just like dark edgy games though.) I saw the Nintendo Mini-Direct announcing SMT V and the SMT III: Nocturne Remaster and I can't WAIT to play those (even better in my case because I got switch and SMT V is a Switch exclusive. ^_^) keep it short: What are YOUR guys thoughts on the franchise as a whole, not just the Persona series? You guys have a particular series of games you like the most for the franchise or anything?

I dunno, I just wanted to post on here again, haven't had the time to do so because heh...Discord roleplay groups with dramas kind of wrecked everything... :asuka_miffed: )

I have some experience with mainline SMT (I'm more familiar with spinoffs like Persona and Digital Devil Saga).

-SMT1, SMT2 and IF... (all on Super Famicom) are good if a bit clunky by today's standards (I haven't played them in over ten years, and you'll have to emulate all three; they've never been officially localized).
-Nocturne was very good if very punishing (it was a bit of a wake-up call compared to other JRPGs in the mid-2000s). I do remember really liking it, though, so I'm definitely going to look into the remaster.
-I never played regular SMT4, and only gave SMT4 Apocalypse a few hours' attention. I don't remember why, I was probably working on something I liked more at the time. I recall it being pretty good, though.

That's my two cents, at least.

-When it comes to Asuka/Shinji, pre-EoE is like moving Mount Everest and post-EoE is like moving the Olympus Mons. Either way, it's moving a mountain. It's just the size of said mountain.-
