You don't have to play other games in order to understand this, it's your choice.

I've never played a Persona game before this one. I gotta say, this is probably one of the best games I have ever played. I just loved every second of it. It just sucks you right in.

Agreed, it takes quite a while before you can free roam but once it does, the game opens up and it becomes extremely enjoyable.

If anything, play in the following order: 4 -> 3 -> 1 -> 2 (Innocent Sin -> Eternal Punishment)

4 is DEFINITELY the best to start with. I tried getting into the series by starting with the first, and I only played 10/20 minutes of it. It really doesn't grab your attention, whereas 4 does. Not that 4 is "better" than the others, they're all equally good IMO (well, other than the first, which is a tad awful, but kinda necessary to the plot of 2) just the others really aren't welcoming. Which they should be, really.
