I apologize in advance for having one disappointing game this time around. And really, it’s not a BAD game, I just figured it would be…well, better. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these and I’ve got a number of great titles to show you. Honestly, there isn’t a whole lot else to say, so let’s just dive right into it!
Ya, figured it was time for another one of these. I’ve gotten quite a few Steam titles since then (I’m up to 289 as of this writing). The main reason I was hesitant to push on with this, besides my motivation being sapped, was that the last one felt like I was…reaching. The good news is that isn’t really happening this time, so hopefully I’ll have quite a bit more to say.
Before I get started, this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but I have to warn you of two things. One, I am NOT the most widely versed individual in SMT. I’m a huge fan and have been for over a decade, but that’s not saying much considering how long the series has been running. And two, while I will be providing as much information as possible, it’s possible I may miss a few titles here and there or otherwise get stuff wrong as I’m mostly going to be referencing Wikipedia.
That said, again, I am a huge fan of SMT, MegaTen, Persona, and whatever. SMT is ever-changing, but one concept that usually remains the same is that of the occult. In many games you may communicate with demons, form demon contracts, recruit demons, fuse demons together, and all kinds of crazy stuff. At times it feels like Pokemon, but with demons, and other times it can operate more like Eye of the Beholder, but with demons.
Naturally, the key word is demons, but sometimes they’re referred to as persona, shadows, monsters, and whatever else, sometimes to get around the censors and other times because they’re not really demons within the SMT universe. Again, this will ATTEMPT to be a giant, canonical listing of all SMT titles, but it’s possible I may skip a few, so I implore you to investigate on your own time as well.
Before we get started, I will try to be as chronologically correct as possible. However, I will also try to present the original North American release date when possible as well. This may get confusing as games like Innocent Sin, originally released in 1999 on the PS1, but never released until the remake on the PSP far later in North America are always a possibility.
According to Wikipedia, the MegaTen series is the third most popular RPG series in Japan, just barely being inched out by Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy. Read on to find out why.

This time I’ve decided to go with as many packages as possible. No, it’s not because I’m trying to knock out every single game I have as quickly as possible. Mostly it’s just that for a lot of these I didn’t realize they were within packages and you typically get better deals with said packages, so there you go. All in all, pretty decent games this time around, so let’s get started!
Ayup, another Steam roundup! This time around I’ll be talking about all indie titles, which Steam has been great for finding. Sure, not all indie titles are great, but these ones are and are all priced pretty low. In fact, they’re cheap enough that if you bought all of them at the same time, you’d be paying right around what you would be for a brand new mainstream title and you’d get oh so much more!
Yup, I decided to do another. This time I decided to throw in only games that I would recommend, but I’m thinking if I do another that I might have to throw in games that I seriously would not recommend to anybody ever. All the same, let’s think positive!
If you’re wondering whether or not you should buy Borderlands 2, possibly worrying that it will just be the original but with different quests or something, you need to quit being a pussy and just buy it. If you haven’t PLAYED the original Borderlands, I’m ashamed to share the same planet as you.
