    1st Games in a Series

    1st of all.. what are they called? It's driving me nuts.
    Then what are your favorites? What do you still consider a great game now that the next game(s) in the series are out? Are there any you like better than the sequels? Try to filter through the nostalgia effects if they are series's you grew up on.

    For me, Kingdom Hearts is what I'm talking about. Fantastic. The ONLY issue for me in the entire game is the camera control lol. Great original storyline. Fun gameplay. (Minus camera control that requires serious getting used to) Lots of replay value. Etc.

    You can come close but you can't beat the originals. brave fencer musashi, legend of legia, and a recent one, prototype, were all much better then the sequels released.

    Dragon Age Origins remains one of my favorite first installment games. DA2 was still very enjoyable, but nowhere near as good as the first.

    The first Uncharted will always hold a special place in my heart (I've platinum'd it 3 times).

    For me, Assassin's Creed is an exception to this. It was so goddamned boring. Assassin's Creed 2 was much better.

    Uncharted 2 is better than 1 & 2 so I don't think I can go with Uncharted like some here.

    The very first games from Resident Evil franchise were the best while it's follow-ups sucked ass (I still can't forgive Capcom for RE6)
    Honestly I have prefered this series as a survival horror adventure than a action-packed garbage.

    Assassin's Creed
    I know most think of it as boring and repetive but everytime I play it, I enjoy it again. Compared to the following titles, there's not much to do but the power of the game itself is so fun. It was the first time I had really become obssessed with a video game in a long time. It's the simplicity of the series to me. It was fun enough to haul ass and fight on rooftops. Just feel so badass in the OG assassin cloak too.

    Bioshock 1 is better than 2 in terms of campaign ,2 has a better game-play and more variety but 1 holds a very special place in my heart also concerning the Uncharted series i've just finished 3 and got a platinum the game is great the Online seems promising haven't played much yet but i felt that the story was incomplete or rushed to ending there were so many things that remain unclear for me the game is great, the story is good but the ending did not live up to that level of awesomeness

    Toggle Spoiler


    For me trophies have become an integral part of gaming, like a stereo in a car. Is it really necessary? No. Is it a lot more fun with it though? Hell yeah!

    I have to agree with @Organization XIII, it's Kingdom Hearts for me. I love the entire series, but the first one has a special place as my first PS2 game. I've been a fan since that day.

    I agree with kingdom hearts. the sequels have been ok but the 1st game has still rocked the best i think.
    as for Silent Hill, i like Silent Hill 2, 3, and 4 more then the first one. they also have alot more replay value.

    Castlevania is probably my top one.
    Zone of the Enders also, i enjoyed much more then 2nd runner.

    In both of the Naughty Dog series I've played (Jak and Uncharted), I think they messed up bad after the first. Especially in Jak. My problems with Uncharted are more trophy related (MP trophies like theirs have placed the UC series on my blacklist) and I can admit they're still good games, but Jak...

    I just don't get it. You take a colorful, perfectly designed PS1-style platformer with some of the best level (and BOSS - the lava monster, anyone?) designs I've ever seen, and then just... toss that out for a generic, angry, and needlessly difficult game that tries to have shooting without strafing. Why? And why do people still say it's good?

    Correct. Metal Gear was indeed the first game in the series, followed by Snake's Revenge Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. THEN 8 years later we come up to Metal Gear Solid

    Mine would have to be the SSX series. Blur and On Tour were atrocious though. Tricky was phenomenal, 3 was great, the most recent addition is so-so (need to spend more time with it) but overall, the original on the PS2 will always be my fondest memory of the snowboarding series
