I suppose not just because of the ER, but did it sell you on the series?
Did You Buy This Because Of The Endurance Run?
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.
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.
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, 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.
