Persona 3 is essentially a Shin Megami Tensei title with a stylish coat of paint that makes it stand out from the others of this mega series. P3 is not nearly as popular as P4, but the darker storyline appealed to me more than P4’s oddly more light-hearted tone. P3 still has that classic SMT difficulty, and you need to grind and understand fusion well to get through, and this is exacerbated by an inability to control your party. It’s worth the occasional slog though as it’s easy to see how P3 lays the groundwork for the subseries’ rise to popularity.
