Gonna treat myself to a game or two after I get paid. Right now my main options are Catherine, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Kid Icarus. Leaning towards Catherine at this point, but still kind of tossing up between the other two.

I haven't played the first two, but I can totes recommend KoA: Reckoning and Mass Effect. Reckoning is a huge open-world game, heaps of quests, story isn't fantastic but the combat is pretty fun. If you're into it, it can last you hours. Plays similarly to a lovechild of Skyrim and Fable (more the latter than the former), with very Blizzardy graphics.
Mass Effect is my favourite RPG series and, despite the criticism the third game got, the majority of it wrapped up the series fairly well (I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE END OKAY GO AWAY). Second game is my personal favourite, but I'd recommend going from the beginning and starting from there - don't touch 2 or 3 before the original, or it'll be so hard to go back to ME1's combat system. Definitely look into ME2 DLC, too; Lair of the Shadow Broker is super fun!
I've been quite into the MGS HD Collection as of lately. The graphics may not be of the superawesomest quality but it's still freaking amazing.
The only drawback to the Collection is the lack of the first game, but it has set an example of what a HD Collection should be.
Catherine is a pretty good game. From the creators of Demon Souls and Dark souls. I have tried the first Mass Effect but haven't gotten the last two and that's why I got them. And I loved Skyrim, I beat the game already. Thinking of making another character on it. I love open world games. Also, rpg. My favorite rpg game is probably FFX. The storyline in that is just fantastic. And I love the music. I am working on Dead Island before I start any of the other games that I have.
Catherine isn't from the creators of Demon/Dark souls. Demon souls was published by ATLUS stateside, but that's the only role they played in Demon Souls.
Catherine was made by the people behind Persona 3 and 4.
By the way, play P3/4 if you haven't.
I've noticed that nobody ever talks about Persona 1 or 2, perhaps for a reason? If someone has no idea what any of them are about, would it make any sense to just go for 3 (or 4?) right away and skip the earlier games?
This is the laws of physics and anthropy, you know, you just put it all together for the bowl, mix with a wooden spoon (make sure it's made of wood), I don't know, kick it for about three or four hours and there you go bing bang there's a duck. You can call it Mike if you want.
P1 and 2 are somewhat connected.
But P3/4 are kept very separate from the first two, with only extremely vague references. You should be fine.
P2 is a pretty good game, but P3/4 are very, very different from the first 3 entries.
I started on P3, and went back to P2 later, and can confirm you're not missing any important details if you skip it for now.
My fault I just saw the Atlus logo and assumed. I have personally never played it but I have watched my friend play it and it looks fun. And I have only played the first two Persona's. The 3rd and 4th looked cool. I liked the one about going into the tv and trying to save someone.
I saw a used copy of Metroid Prime 3 at Gamestop for $8. I'm considering getting it because it sounds like a steal, but I want it for sequence breaking purposes; I've already beaten it(though only on Normal, I think). I've been sequence breaking Prime 1 and more recently, 2 (I skipped the item loss at the beginning of the game, it was awesome), but I don't see much potential in 3... Should I get it anyway?
