I'll start off admitting I don't know much about rpgs. The ones I love best are the old school ones. Ff on the nes, dragon warrior series, pokemon games are my favorite. I played skyrim and really liked it, but I think it was because it was an easy learning curve.
I guess the games I like best are turn based.
Is persona turn based? Is it easy to pick up and play without being overwhelming?
Is it a consecutive story line? Am I gonna be lost staring with the 4th?
I see it promises 100 hours of vita gameplay and I really need a good portable game.
