So this is my first SMT proper game. I'm about 5 hours in and enjoying the hell out of it so far. One thing I'm really curious about though. The system wherein you ask the enemies you are fighting for money...and then they give it to you...and then they let you kill them.
I've played my fair share of JRPGs and I love me some stupid bullshit. But this just seems strange to me. Is there some logic here that I'm missing? Maybe some folklore that I don't have knowledge of?
