Now go get yourself a steam account and be a Multi-platform gaming god.

I'm not big into RPG's simply because of how long they are. I don't think they would keep my interest for the amount of hours it requires to beat them. I forgot about Persona tho, maybe I'll check it out. (or try out FF on PS Now or something)

Hey, hey, hey! What did we say about keeping an open mind? :)

If you can, check out this review videos of Persona 3. It's what got me interested in the series.

The way the game incorporates the school aspect in the game, without making it boring, but actually fun, along with how you socialize with people, sounded very interesting to me. And I'm glad I gave it a shot because I've been a huge fan since. If you can't play Persona 3 or 4, there's Persona 5 coming out soon for PS4. And it looks amazing.

Anyway, I was Nintendo-only until N64. After that I got a PS2. And I think everyone should try another console at some point, because it really gives you a different perspective. But unlike you, I got more interested in third party games when I got Sony's console, because Sony is just one developer, and there's just so many of quality on the system. The vast majority of my games on PS2 and PS3 have been third party games.
That said, right now there's not much on PS4 that interests me, but starting with Street Fighter 5, there will be a lot coming out for the system this year that I like, so I will get one when SFV comes out.

Its just a game console, not a religious conversion, but welcome to Playstation, the one true path.



If you liked TLOU you should give Uncharted a chance.
Uncharted 4 not only also comes from the same studio but was taken over by TLOU guys.
Have you played any PlayStation game older than PS4? Aside from TLOU.
You should really check older ganes, at least PS2 and PS3, but also PS1 definitely if you don't mind old graphics.

It's true, I did say I wanted to be more open minded

My brother has Persona Q on 3DS so I could play that to see if I'd like that sort of game. It does seem interesting with the school / nightmare realm thing going on. I kinda wanna just jump into Persona 5 tho, it looks like a lot was put into it. The animation & everything looks really good. Are the games continuous or can I jump right into 5? 

I agree, it definitely gives a different perspective when you try new things, even with gaming. Glad to see you're interested in Street Fughter 5. Thought I was online in that for a bit there

Well, I've had some access to PS in the past with my cousins and older brother but didn't get to play much of it at all. I'm a big fan of the older Resident Evil games and wanted to beat Dino Crisis but never got to. Am waiting for them to add PS classics to PS4. I basically only dabbled into other PS games likes Crash & Spyro but might as well of only played demos for them. I did recently beat ICO through PS Now. I'll certainly try to play more of the older games when they become available.

As for Uncharted? I played a demo on my cousins PS3 and didn't care for it too much. It was the 2nd game. I've never been a fan of the Indiana jones / treasure hunting setting either. With that said, TLOU was awesome so it does make me kinda want to give it a full chance. I keep 2nd guessing it tho

You should be able to jump right into Persona 5. Like the other numbered Persona games, it seems to have no direct correlation to the others. There are usually some references to other games, and there may be a returning character or two (that won't be in your party), but the story should be stand-alone.
And yeah, looks like they put in a lot of work into it. They even skipped the PS3 era.

About Persona Q though, that one is an exception, and it's not really a Persona game. It's an Etrian Odyssey game with Persona characters, and a story around the characters from Persona 3 and 4. Nothing else in the game is related to those games though. The gameplay and combat system is based on Etrian Odyssey, and nothing that made Persona into what it is is really in that game. So unforunately it won't give you an insight into what they are like, other than learning a bit about the characters.

And there are some Street Fighter V fans here on the site. Someone wil probably set up a forum tournament later. =p

That's what I noticed, they skipped the PS3 which means the upgrade will probably be quite big. Glad to hear the stories aren't continued, makes it much easier on me getting into it.

I'll probably not play Q then. I'm not too big into handhelds and if it has little connection anyway, no point in it

Maybe I'll join the Street Fighter stuff depending on if I'm available. Most tournaments seem to be on the weekend for obvious reasons but I can't play much then

Yeah, I haven't played Persona Q either. I hear its an ok game in it's own right, but since it's not really Persona, I have other games I prioritize. Maybe I'll get to it some day.

If there's a tournament here, I imagine contestants will play their matches whenever they can, maybe have a one week deadline, and then the results will be updated at the end of the week. I could PM you with details when it's set up. =p



So you beat ICO, then beat Shadow of the Colossus as well xD
I see you are already interested in The Last Guardian, and it's more like ICO, but Shadow of the Colossus is awesome, it's still so damn epic, even as it was completely mind blowing back in the day. Not to say about that superb OST and art direction. It's probably available at PS now as well, right?



Look into Ni-Oh. It's going to be my personal Game of the Year at this rate
