I suppose not just because of the ER, but did it sell you on the series?

I had only heard a smidge about the game and its social parts, never knew anything else about it, but yeah since ER I've bought both P3 and P4

I was a fan of the Persona series before i saw the ER.

Indirectly. 
I played P4 because of the ER, loved it, and that made me buy P3P.
So... Yes.

I heard Andrew Fitch talking about it, so I watched the ER. Watched the ER so I wanted to buy P4. Turned of my Backwards Compatible PS3. It wouldn't turn on for more than 5 secs. Said "Huh, that's interesting." Got my not backwards compatible PS3 and said "Sorry Yakuza 2 and P4." Then P3P.

Nope.
 
I was shown the ER by a friend early in episode 4 I already Had P4 for a year and been getting though P3 when I saw it. But I sat and watched the ER... and signed up for the site. XP

I bought it after becoming a fan of the Persona series after watching the Endurance Run, so yes. The reason I missed out on the game series is because I've never owned a Sony console (until the PSP, which was a bad choice on my part, but...); otherwise I'd have been all over it.

took me until episode 50 to finally check out the Endurance run, and then a few more episodes to check out the Persona series. just bought persona 4, and i'm about to buy p3p... so yeah. 
 
I don't regret any action at all

I bought Persona 4 because of the Endurance Run. I then bought a copy of Persona 3 that I found at a Gamestop for $12, simply because that's such a good price I couldn't say no. I'd love to have the portable version too, but unfortunately that would require me to have a portable gaming system...
 
So yeah, I guess I did. :) They're good games, and I like the fact they're so bloody endless because I only have to buy one or two to satisfy my craving for J-RPGs for months on end.

No, but I can neither confirm nor deny if there is an ISO of P3FES on a computer near me.

I'm going to buy Persona 3 FES just because the Endurance Run got me interested in the series.

No, I don't have a PSP.

No, I played the original release of Persona 3 a few months after it came out due to rave reviews from a few friends and because a lot of game writers I followed at the time had said good things about it on podcasts and whatnot.  I love urban fantasy, so I figured why not give it a shot.
 
Very, very glad I did.  I've played P3, P3: FES, and P3P and the purchases have all totally been worth it.  P3 kind've owns my gaming time ;D
 
I'm actually just watching the Endurance run now -- it's finally been long enough since I finished up P4 that I actually want to see Vinny and Jeff go through it.

Nope. But I did buy a used PS2 with P3 FES and P4. Also finally watched Twin Peaks for the first time. Oh how I cracked up the first time Dale had that freaky grin on his face. 
 
Thanks ER for enriching my life!

I bought P4 and P3 FES because of the endurance run, so... no.

#21 Posted by DonutFever (3559 posts) -

Surprised by the amount of people who said no. I guess I should have put an option that said "I Didn't Play It".

I just about finished P4 and P3 FES a few days the ER started. So no I didn't.
