Do you ever do game franchise runs?

What I mean is do you ever play a certain game and then start on its sequel? I have been doing a Max Payne run lately and I just knocked out MP2. Soon ill start and beat MP3 again. The old-school Resident Evils, Mega Man games, Metroid games are other runs I enjoy. Do you ever do franchise runs?

Last year I got back into Assassin's Creed after hearing how the series started getting good at part two. This past summer in one went through Assassin's Creed 1-2-Brotherhood-Revelations-3-Liberation including all its DLC in between. I thought it would take me one month, instead it took me three.

Yeah. I probably do ME once a year. I feel like games are pretty much like films and books-- the first encounter is for effect, but the second is when you really dig in.

No one should buy MGSV: Ground Zeroes, don't support Konami and their greedy ways.

Finishing my Gears of War run after I beat 3, and Judgement. Then probably moving on to either Bioshock, Batman, or Assassins Creed series.

I usually play 2-3 games in a series back to back. It helps immerse me in the universe more and also to appreciate the small changes between entries.

Wing Commander, Metal Gear, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy are my favorites.

No I like to mix it up so I don't get fatigued on one particular game.

Back in the day I did a Final Fantasy run. I think the latest game in the mainline series was 10 or 10-2.

I only managed to get from FF1 to 9 and I didn't finish 9.
