I bought Persona 5 and am currently addicted. I am in late October and can honestly say it's one of the best games I've played. It's my first in the series so once I beat it, what's next? Should I try to play Persona 1 or is that too dated now? Am I better to play the ps2 ones (3 and 4)? Is it going to be hard to go back to an older one after playing 5?

Persona 1 and 2 are really different than the later ones. probably 4 would be the next best thing, some still like it more than 5, but 5 is my #1 jrpg ever. and dont miss Tokyo Xanadu eX+, it takes persona and mixes it with Ys... and its spectacular. in a year without P5 and Nier Automata it would have been my game of the year last year easily, over zelda or horizon, i loved it that much. it was SO good. its like playing an anime, the opening intro even plays inbetween chapters like its the next episode. otaku/weeb heaven. anime high school life is better than real life.

@tonymack21 My roommate is almost done with Tokyo Xanadu and loves it. I think I'm going to dive in once he is done with it.

On Persona...It'll probably be a bit of a shock to the system playing through P3 or P4 for the first time having recently played P5, but you'll adjust in no time. They are two of the best RPGs I've ever played.

I'd play the PS4 version of Xanadu if it's an option there is an extra chapter and it runs a little better but you could always YouTube it if you go vita

Do I need a Vita AND PS TV to play persona 4 Golden on my TV? Or do I only need the ps tv device? Any good deals on a ps tv?

just the ps tv device. they usually float around here at pretty good prices, they usually come with a memory card but make sure you get one.

Cool thanks Tony. I must have missed the boat because just the system is $65 on Amazon. It sounds like the full bundle was only $39.99 at one time. GameStop has decent prices but none in stock near me. I'll make a post here and keep an eye on eBay. Are there different versions of the ps tv?

I don't think so I'm pretty sure they are all the same

Like others have said, both P3 and P4 are excellent choices. 1 and 2 are vastly different from the others, but are also decent plays later. If you go this route, I personally don't have a preference between P4 and P4G, so pick either one. (Technically P4G is the definitive version, but I don't think the extra stuff they added sets it far enough apart from the original.) P3 is tougher, since there's no real definitive version. P3F, my personal pick, gives you the extra part after the game called the answer, solving some of the things that happened at the end of the main game. P3F also lets you walk around your destinations (as opposed to P3Ps menu/pick a dot to go here system), and, while it may not seem like much, the ability for the MC to use any weapon. (I'm partial to the bow.)

But P3P has some perks, too. The MC's gender is selectable (but the male is still locked to swords, and the female to naginatas), and skill cards are present for learning skills. The biggest improvement, undoubtedly, is the ability to control your other characters. P3F has only AI for them, and to give you an idea there, look up "Mitsuru Marin Karin". You can learn to work with the AI, and that's an extra step I prefer for the other differences.
