Metroid Prime 3, Fire Emblem 10, Resident Evil 4 all come to mind.

No, not really. I played MGS2 before MGS1 and I've played R2 without ever playing the first one.

This will only take a moment of your time. *steals your watch*

I played FFX-2 without playing X. I also played RE4 without playing RE2.

Yes, very recently actually. I just played ToS 2, and I haven't played ToS 1 yet............although it's motivated me to try and find a copy of ToS1.


What this guy said.

I third what that guy said.


note: This is one of the things I love about handhelds. Often times one can get an original thats been ported on a handheld, without having to deal with emulators and roms, if they so desire.

Dgc1808 played Final Fantasy X-2 without playing Final Fantasy X.

That is so depressing.

Well i played Shadow hearts 2 and 3 and never played the first one,,, but it was a shame cause the second one was super connected to the first,, but i read enough faqs and story reviews in order to connect to it.



Currently Playing: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3), White Knight Chronicles (PS3), PES 2010 (PS3), Killzone 2 (PS3)

Games to Finish: Silent hill Homecoming (PS3), Valkyria Chronicles (PS3), Oblivion (PS3)

Oh yeah, I forgot another game I played without playing its prequel: Blood Omen 2. I only played it cause it was free. It SEEMS like there's a lot of backstory that was in the first game that I missed, but I actually went back and tracked down the first Blood Omen game, and the gameplay was just UTTERLY different, so I haven't really run into a lot of whatever story elements there are yet.

Usually I don't like playing a game that is 2nd or 3rd in the series unless I know that there isn't really much of a plot or storyline to the game to worry about, like Super Mario Bros or Sonic the Hedgehog.

Seppukuties is like LBP Lite, on crack. Play it already!

Currently wrapped up in: Half Life, Portal, and User Created Source Mods
Games I want: (Wii)Mario Kart, Okami, Bully, Conduit,  No More Heroes 2 (GC) Eternal Darkness, Killer7, (PS2) Ico, God of War1&2, Legacy of Kain: SR2&Defiance

My Prediction: Wii will be achieve 48% market share by the end of 2008, and will achieve 50% by the end of june of 09. Prediction Failed.

I will... if i can't avoid it really or if it doesn't seem to matter too much.

Then i'll just go back and play the original if the game was good.
