“Shin Megami Tensei, Yahtzee!” Er. Sorry, I haven’t got any tissues. “No! You big racist. You should play the new Shin Megami Tensei V since you like Persona games so much.” Went the anime fans every bloody week for the last month. For fuck’s sake, you anime fans are like drug dealers, you are. You hang around outside middle schools looking for any kid showing the slightest interest in Pokemon cards and then refuse to leave them alone until they’re gluing fridge magnets to their hair and insisting on being called Sasuke. “Shin Megami Tensei is the mainline series of RPGs that Persona spun off from, Yahtzee, as you bloody well know you constantly Evangelion-referencing obvious closet anime liking person. Shin Megami Tensei basically is Persona without the day to day life sim aspect or vibrant visual design or really good music or engaging characters that make it constant fodder for cultural reference, anime adaptation and fanmade jailbait pornography.” That was rather a tangential sales pitch, and not exactly an effective one. “It’s Persona without any of the shit you like about Persona.” “Alright how about this one? Your Halo Infinite code hasn’t come in yet and you’ve got a week to fill before Christmas.” Oh bollocks. Whatever.
