Want to start playing Ratchet and Clank..

I have all of them except for Deadlocked, All 4 One, Full Frontal Assault, Secrete Agent Clank and the mobile games.

i played a tiny bit of the first game and stopped because I literally didn't know what to do or where to go.

Played a little bit of size matters on Vita and it controlled really bizarre.

And today I played a little bit of Future Tools of Destruction and it was really awesome. Controls were really good. Felt good to play.

I've played Size Matters the most and didn't care for it.

But Should I start from the first game (I have the collection) or start with the Future series?

The best game in the entire series is Up Your Arsenal (the third game in the original trilogy). You could play just that one alone and be satisfied.

A Crack in Time is the best on PS3.

If your intention is to play all of them (and I would recommend doing so), I recommend going with the first one first. I feel the absence of a weapon upgrading system made 1 hard to go back to. The lack of any motivation to try new weapons puts a damper on the experience to me. If you are happy with skipping installments and missing somewhat minor back stories, then just go ahead with the more critically acclaimed installments.

No, don't skip the first series. The "second" series does not hold a candle to the PS2 games, although Crack in Time is loved by many. Into The Nexus was fun but wayyyy too short.

Play through 1-3, then jump onto the Future series.

ok. Is the collection also on vita? I would like to have the ability to play them on the go as well. Also if it is on the vita (I can't find any solid info on this) is it cross buy/cross save?

I think it was just released on Vita or I saw it on sale recently. Either way, I don't think it's cross-buy/cross-save.

Cross save and just released on the vita.

1 tip for R&C 1, just go anywhere. You"ll have to follow 2 (sometimes 3) paths to do a certain mission and obtain something so you can open a door or w/e on the other path. You really never can get lost.

good call to play Ratchet and Clank form the beginning. Was playing the PS2 version on my LCD and everything looked awful, hard to see, colors washed out....etc. I even have component cables hooked up.

Popped in the PS3 version and made it much more enjoyable and was easy to tell where to go via the map. Stupid for not playing that version anyway since it was redone in 16:9. Just being able to see everything correctly makes a huge difference.

incredible game btw. Can't wait to finish the rest of the series.
