I've always wanted to get into the series but I keep forgetting, so with the upcoming sale I think I will give it a go. Which one would be the best purchase? Which one provides the most amount of awesome?

I left out All 4 One cause, not only was it free all month, it also sucks ass.

Playing: Final Fantasy III, Tales of Graces f, Soul Hackers
Dragon Quest>Ys=SMT=Tales>Final Fantasy, but I enjoy all five.

Up Your Arsenal is the only sensible choice. It's the only classic style R&C game on the list. Quest for Booty is too I suppose, but it's a really short DL title.

Any reason for those particular games? Because all the real best R&C games (Crack in Time, Going Commando, Size Matters) aren't up there.

Why no Crack in Time or Going Commando?

Why not just get the R&C Collection? The original are by far the best. The games included in the collection are

Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank Going Commando
Ratchet & Clank Up your Arsenal (the only good one you had in that list of yours)

Note: the jump in gameplay quality is quite large between the 1st and the 2nd. However, the 1st does have a pretty good story, so it shouldn't be ignored.

That poll makes me question the legitimacy of this topic.

Play the games in order. Not because the story requires it (though a few of the later games do require it), but because of character growth and gameplay evolution.

So get the HD collection first, then go from there.
