Play AC1 first. You will appreciate the improvements made to the series.

It's pointless to play AC2, ACB and ACR out of order, or to skip any of those other than maybe the last one. It's preferred to play AC1 too, but if your free time is an issue then you might skip it, because the gameplay doesn't have the variety or polish of the Ezio series. If you only had time to play one, then AC2. It's also worth checking out the multi-player.

Why do people ask this question all the time? Why would you play them in any order other than the order they came out?

If you can, play them all in order, if you can't or don't have enough time skip 1 but read a summery or something, play AC2 and B then skip Rev because it's a waste of time really, nothing relevant is learned for either the 2012 story or Ezios (but it does have some good Ezio moments) 2 and Bro are class games though with a great story, and if you do play 1 then stick with it and don't give up n the series because the improvements in 2 are excellent.

some series i would recommend skipping games or playing them out of release order.

assassin's creed 1 was flawed, but i still think it was fun and interesting at the end of the day. the setting is killer for anyone who doesnt need fluffy anime or broseph gears/god of war crap shoved in their face like they're a child. i would say its worth trying, but dont give up on the series if you dont like 1, it takes patience to enjoy, like Mount and Blade or other 'technical' games.

also, alot of people would tell you to skip out on revelations. i thought it was a decent purchase, i got my $60 worth out of it, but they are correct in that its just kind of a lazy continuation of AC2/ACB. the setting is interesting but the gameplay is far too easy for there to be any appreciable sense of accomplishment.

examples of series where i recommend not going by release order:
halo... for obvious reasons. i did a full chronological order playthrough of the singleplayer recently (wars->reach->CE:A->Halo 2 Vista->ODST->Halo 3) and i do have to say, the campaigns of Halo 2 and 3 were truly terrible in terms of both a story/presentation perspective and a gameplay perspective. i remember playing them on legendary nonstop back in the day, but i felt nauseous playing them in 2012, its everything we've come to hate about modern FPS design married with an awkward Halo 2/3 engine.

elder scrolls... you can easily skip half the games in the series. modded morrowind and modded skyrim are all you really need to experience.

Because prequels, man! Doesn't matter that the prequel is meant to expand on something that happened in the future or in a different place, or that the gameplay will be wildly different between games as a result of jumping back and forth between development years, but you have to play them in chronological order!

That's why you play Halo Wars first, then Reach, then Halo 1! Because of chronological stuff!

Yeah, it's a dumb reason.
