So I was looking through my games trying to find what to play when I realize there really are quite a bit of series in video games. That also got me thinking about how there are times when I want a game that is about to be released, but I haven’t played its prequels; which usually causes me to skip the new game until I can play its prequels.
Instead of playing a game, I end up looking at the different series of games I own. I found that 99% of the games that are part of a series, I have started from the first one. The exceptions in my collection seem to be Fallout, Final Fantasy, and Tony Hawk (Pro Skater and Underground). Out of the games where I started at the first one, I have beaten the first game before moving onto the second.
Do you start at the first game in a series? If so, do you have to beat the game before moving to the next?
