Version x.x

Lately me and some other peeps on Dtoid have notice a trend about sequels in a franchise and not being totally different but rather "improved" and instead of giving them a proper number (1, 2, 3, 4) we designate them with a .5. Now I can understand that will all the new gen stuff going on we expect alot from new game release. But when sequels are on the same console that their previous was it is hard to expect huge difference.

In this context I am thinking about the Persona serie. Persona 4 has been announced and already from the first trailer and screenshot people are screaming Persona 3.5 (including myself) but if we just stop for a moment and think about it, it's always been that way. Lets take Persona, the first two iterations came out on the PS1 and were not much different from one another beside some game mechanics. Now Persona 3 on the PS2 blew our minds people came to expect the same results with the fourth one. It's probably a case of a low profile game getting too much success and not being able to live up to the expectation even though I'm sure that Persona 4 will be amazing. But yeah what I'm saying is, please refrain from dissing a game that is not even out yet just because it is somewhat similar to the previous one. If I think about most of the other game franchise (megaman, castlevania, ninja gaiden, contra) We never really complained about how they looked very much alike.
