I was a PC gamer for a long time, and didn’t get any consoles after SNES until we got our PS3. So basically, I’m late to the party, and I got a lot of catching up to do. But I don’t do things in order…
I got God of War 3, finished that, then got the earlier games.
Played Uncharted 2 (before 3 came out), finished that, so then went and got the first.
It kind of makes the story disjointed, but whatever. I like being all like “oooooh! That’s why blah blah happened in the newest one!” It’s kinda neat.
And after developing a man crush on Ezio in Revelations, it’s interesting to see him while he was younger too. If I was gay, and he was real, I’d do him.
That’s all well and good, but the truth is this:
I just like the newer games because the graphics are better.
Seriously, it’s like watching something in HD instead of …. low D. Why would you if you had the option?
But then I start to appreciate the game for more – its storyline, its characters, its gameplay. That’s what makes me go out and get the older versions. Having an appreciation of those things from the newest game probably makes the earlier games much more enjoyable than they would have been if I had played them first.
The newest game hooks me, and then I end up being “sold” on the whole series.
Anyone else feel me on this? Or am I the only one?
