@TooWalrus: I know what your saying. My younger brother said the same things about FES vs P3P, but I liked it. It Stream lined it for me which when all was said and done cut a couple hours off of my total playtime. I also pretty much played P3P at my brothers place while his girlfriend played it on PS2 right beside me. but it worked for me.
I always prefored persona 3 over 4, but I'm loving how quick the load times are. I think one of the reasons I liked 3 more was because I was playing P3P while I was playing 4 on the PS2j, and I loved the load times. I know its a dumb reason but they are both amazing.
Thank you all for the input. I decided to go with persona 3 because I never played it and I've played castlevania SoTN a couple times already. It is my favorite PS1 game but I'm just gonna wait for the PS1 classics to hit the vita store and download it then. I just knew I loved that game and thought maybe those other Castlevanias would grab me too.
Anyway I'm walking into the world of Persona 3 LoL I really hope I don't get to engrossed in its world, and end up losing my girlfriend for a couple of days(lol, they always come back) :-)
