I enjoyed Persona 3 when it came out and I have P4 on the PS2 but never got round to playing it. It's one I definitely meant to go back to but seems to of slipped through the generation net not being able to play it on PS3. I don't plan on getting a Vita, well maybe much much later.
So would I get a good grasp of the story or would I be having to pause a lot to read the majority of the important text? I watched through Deadly Premonition and will watch the P4 one but shall I play it myself first?
