When you start a new game series...



Do you feel like you have to start with the first one? Or do you feel like you can start in the middle? I always feel like I have to play in order so that's why I ask, even if the previous versions are old and out of date.

Just depends really. I played maybe an hour of the first Assassin's Creed and hated it. Never bothered with the story, but 2 was an amazing game. My first Splinter Cell was Chaos Theory, though. I know the first 2 were good games themselves, but when I tried to play the first one, it annoyed me that there were certain features not available.

If the earlier games are pretty old, I have no problem looking up the story so I'm somewhat caught up.

Yes. But I'm a story/lore whore.

For me it's based on a number of factors.

Like when it comes to Zelda games, I can play skyward sword and then go back to Link to the Past and still enjoy that game even though skyward sword has way more features. I guess when games in a series age well with time you can do this.

Now if I was just getting into the Metal Gear Solid series, I would for sure start from MGS just because there was way more emphasis on story than gameplay.

Typically if it's a series of games where all the games build upon each other heavily gameplay wise, for example Resistance 1 to Resistance 3 or God of War 1 to God of War 3, I play them in order or else you'll just get frustrated by the lack of features.

Nope. Started playing Hitman for the first time with the new release and started playing God of War 3 with no desire to play the first 2.
