    I played EP circa 2002 or so myself, but I was aware of IS even then because I looked it up online. SMT games were still pretty much a cult favourite during those times, but there were sites dedicated to the duology that provided a lot of information about the games. Persona 2: Eternal Punishment was actually my gateway to this multiverse (then it was SMT, Kuzunoha, Persona 1, DDS) but the artstyle, the concept, the plot and characters were extremely interesting so I looked it up to see if there was more to the world, since I was raised on JRPGs that had 10 million titles under its series, haha.

    I played IS a few months after the patch was released because I had great timing and just finished a replay of EP and wanted to reread something about the universe of Persona. Happened to see news about the patch and. Ta-da~

    It's not as popular as P3 and P4 but it did generate 700k or so of sold units for the remake (for P2:IS, don't actually know how much P2:EP get). I think it's one of those unpopular popular titles that a lot of people know even if not a lot has played it.

    Still working on Innocent Sin, but I think it's great so far. I do agree that the story is a bit "heavy", but it sets the atmosphere of the game just right. In addition, some of the regular fights are hard as balls and can get you killed easily(like most SMT games). On the other hand, it's a nice, new experience for those that have only played Persona 3 and 4. I highly recommend it to any Persona fan.

    I've only read about the games, never got a chance to play them, but they seem very interesting and unique. My biggest hope for them is a compilation re-release on the 3DS.

    I don't think my hopes will be fulfilled anytime soon, read: ever.

    I really would like to get Persona 2, but I simply don't have the time or (more importantly) funds to get the game cd. Until then, I'll have to settle for watching playthroughs on YouTube to get me by for now.

    Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is my absolute favorite in the entire series. I bought it on day 1 for the PS1 and played through it religiously until I got to the end. It's got a great atmosphere and story that surpassed the majority of JRPGs released during that period. I also find the characters and story far more appealing than those in Persona 3 & 4. Not that P3 & 4 are not strong on character and story, but a little of the magic from Eternal Punishment is missing.

    P2 does feel dated when it comes to the graphics but the system, gameplay, balance and variety. Only reason I picked up Persona 2: Innocent Sin was because it was the prequel to Eternal Punishment and I love both of them. Anyone else here spend IRL days gambling in the casino? I know I did.

    I would've, but I found out very quickly that you couldn't exchange your chips in for in-game money. Stopped immediately after I found that out.

    Persona 2 is fun, but yes dated.

    Good thing I never took up gambling then
