i have played just about all of the SMT games from the last 10 years. I cannot say for sure which ones i believe is my favorite one, as they all are great in their own right. for instance, strange journey is my favorite first person smt with soul hackers as the runner up. i love that smt iv is in 3d when exploring the dungeons. and the devil survivor games are my favorite srpg series next to fire emblem or luminous arc series. Out of all of them, i will have to put down two top games. i would say that smt persona 3 and smt iv are my top favorites in the series. I have yet to play persona q, and it is in my list of games to get.
