I'm behind in gaming. I took years off and just got a PS3. I'm on Bioshock and Assassin Creed 1. I'm also embarrassed to say that I'm still on the first Metal Gear Solid for PS1. I never followed that franchise. So as I beat these games and buy new ones, is it ideal to play them in order? Keep in mind I don't really care about story lines, I just play for the most part.
Hmm it depends on 2 things, the person and the game.
some people dont like to have a story spoiled so it doesnt make much sense to play the last game before the first game, since playing that would make it pointless to play the first.
But for some it doesnt matter and well then it doesnt matter and they play the games how they want.
So do you care about the story and spoilers? then i wouldn´t recommend it otherwise go ahead.
