Well the endurance run did convince me to immediately buy the only copy of Persona 3: FES at my local best buy. but im sure ill pick up Persona 4 when im done with 3. Maybe even before because i don't know how rare copies of P4 are these days.
Did you dust of your PS2 and buy Persona4 after watching the Endurance Runs?
The endurance run not only inspired me to buy the game, it got the ball rolling to put Persona on the short list of my favorite franchises. I'm on my second playthrough of P4, I'll be getting P3 FES, and P5 is my most anticipated game of every trade show until it's shown.
" i don't know how rare copies of P4 are these days. "
" I bought FES and Persona 4, burning my way through FES.Does FES or Persona 3 have a soundtrack disc out there somewhere? "
Never would have bothered with the series as i am not a huge jrpg fan, i find them typically lacking and poor in terms of story.
I bought P4 in the Amazon sale giantbomb plugged. I actually had lent my PS2 out for about a year. I told the guy I needed it back and it turned out he lent it to some kids… who destroyed it. Long story short I wound up buying a backwards compatible PS3. It has only been used to play Persona.
" I actually dusted off my PS3and bought Persona 4 because of the Endurance Run.Poor PS3, I really wish I played it more. "
I moved to a new city back in 2005. I didn't even bother unpacking my PS2, until late 2008. When I got it out and turned it on Final Fantasy X was in the drive with a whopping 15 minutes of playtime - so I finished that before grabbing persona 4 (due to the endurance runs)
I haven't played a next gen game that comes close to the satisfaction I got out of finishing FFX or P4. Long live the PS2!
The Endurance Run made the game look really good to me so I bought P4 after about episode 16 but I didnt dust off my PS2, instead Im playing it on my 60GB PS3, I like the wireless controller better, my PS2 is still very dusty and unplugged sitting on my shelf somewhere
I also plan to purchase Persona 3:FES as soon as I can so yeah, the ER made me a Persona fan. I also plan to purchase Persona PSP if Atlus ever decides to release it here in Europe

Also, if Atlus ever decides to release Persona PSP over here in Europe then I plan to purchase that too

If Persona PSP comes out in Europe and it's anything like the other Atlus games going there, you're looking for Square Enix to pick it up.
I borrowed it from a friend a couple of days ago and im absolutly hooked. The first 4 hours (aka the introduction/intro) had me falling in love, but i got really stuck at the fight with Yukikos shadow. Damn that thing was hard, am I the only one? After i beat it though it keeped getting better and better. All the different shit i can do to progress. Man im loving it now. Didnt think i would ever love a JRPG, ever, but this one have me glued to the screen for many hours a day.
I quick question though. The secret boss at Yukiko's castle; am i not able to beat it shortly after i beat Yukiko's shadow, or am i far behind what i should be able to beat?
My mother bought me Persona 4 after someone at my local Gamestop recommended it, along with a few other PS2 games...I think one of them was a Harvest something or other, and...Odin Sphere? I should get around to playing those other ones soon. I got them for Christmas and still haven't touched them. xD
I found the Endurance Run shortly after starting up P4. They were on episode...83? 84? I forget, but they were around that range. I watched a few episodes and got hooked, and I feel motivated to press forward in the game to see what I have to potentially look forward to seeing Vinny and Jeff comment on. ^^
I have to wonder if the person who recommended it watched the endurance run or simply just plays a number of games to help them out at their job. It would be interesting if it was the former.
