But then I wouldn't get the references. I made the mistake of playing MGS2 before MGS1.
Oh god, I feel your pain.
You get so lost you're basically a blind man walking through a war zone if you don't play MGS1 lol
Never played his games, but I wouldn't object. Despite initially appearing to be a very obscure series, Persona seems to be rising in popularity lately and it's a critically acclaimed series with strong ties to the PlayStation. JRPGs are also woefully under-represented in this game, and since FF characters seem out of the question, Yu would be a good replacement (stick Dart in as his rival and you get two JRPG reps at once!). Plus from what I've read, he'd bring an interesting moveset to the table.

I played 4 first and I have to say you will be fine. Heck most people would actually recommend 3 or 4 first. The first two don't appeal to a larger audience like 3 and 4. Playing them first might just turn you off from the series.
