I'm sadly one of the hypocrites who hates on the game without even trying it, because I already know I hate the characters, and I've seen the story and the character motives already ripped apart in angry reviews

    Welcome aboard, though. You have an interestingly eloquent way of forming your sentences. I'd wager a guess that you dabble in writing, though I could be wrong. I just get a writer's vibe

    You'll find plenty of Persona and SMT fanship here. I haven't played a huge amount of them, but to answer your question, if you haven't played any of the DS games, the last game to utilize the demon friendship system in a moderately realistic fashion, was probably SMT: Strange Journey for the DS. The Devil Survivor games on DS and 3DS use a contract system, but you go about that with auctions and buying demons mostly. Strange Journey actually had you converse with the demons similar to Persona 2 and the like

    And if you've already played that game, then my info is useless as I'm just beginning to dabble into the series, but I enjoy it so far. Watched my girlfriend play through both versions of P3, and am currently going through P4 for the second time on Vita with Golden. And I've played most of the DS/3DS titles, as well as Digital Devil Saga. Still growing my collection though. Next addition will be between Soul Hackers, SMT IV, or Persona Q
    It would be more accurate to say I've failed in writing, repeatedly. I've done many a text RP and been told I've performed well... Yet when writing a stand-alone story of my own, I can never string together something I consider worthy of having someone read. So really I just aspire to eloquent forum posts to keep some degree of my failed edge sharp. Despite already knowing such foolish pride is a futile effort.

    I've played both Devil Survivors, to my disappointment of demons being flat-out bought; however I've missed Strange Journey. As actually speaking to the demons is what I desire it seems I overlooked a diamond in the rough... SMT IV had the feature sure enough, but it felt like pure RNG with no real consistency to a particular demon's responses during negotiation. While the bosses' conversations did indeed have worthwhile responses, that simply wasn't enough for me. Admittedly some of the Press X To Die conversation options were amusing.

    My apologies for overlooking Vermactnis' reply. I've heard dimly of the Devil Summoner branch of the series, yet never quite enough to steer my gaze toward it... Perhaps I should have looked into it more.

    I can vouch for SMT IV that the negotiation system is okay there. It's pretty much the same as in Strange Journey.
