Have you ever played a series of games backwards? (Story-wise)

For example, you first played Lightning Returns, and then you go finish Final Fantasy XIII-2, and lastly, you finish Final Fantasy XIII.


Have you ever done that before?

Sometimes, but it's more that I missed the first game, played the 2nd and liked it and picked the 1st one up then a long running series.

Not sure if I ever have, to be honest.

I like playing them from start to finish to see how they progress and improve.

no, if i play the latest game, i usually never go back and finish the others. ok while typing i just remember only 1 time i did this, and it was with parasite eve. i had part 2's disc, was stuck on a boss right before the 1st disc ends, and i gave up after trying a hundred times. part 3 was just released, so i played and beat it, then bought pe2 from psn, beat it, bought pe1 from psn, and beat it.

I played the Devil May Cry series backwards. 3, 2, 1.


But then 4 came along so.... the streak got broken.

Never done this. And I can't help but wonder why of all series you posted one that isn't even complete...and for all we know may not be.

I expect most of the newer MGS players might've played the game backwards.
