    Question Series' you own several installments of that you've NEVER PLAYED?

    What are some series' that you've amassed several installments and have yet to play ANY of them? I have a tendency to purchase each game in a series if I've fond of any single installment, but then there are some games that I've never actually gotten around to playing any of, but own, and based on the fact that the original I purchased seemed appealing, have purchased other installments in good faith.

    The 'Where's the Disgaea 4 love' thread in Modern Gaming got me thinking about this. I own Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories, and Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, but I've never played any of them. I purchased them all for less than $20 each, so I'm not out much, but there's actually a chance that I may hate the series after investing somewhat heavily into it (relatively).

    There are several popular series' that I've never even tried, but own quite a few (if not all) installments of. Especially last generation. Just a few others are:

    • Ace Combat 3, AC04: Shattered Skies, AC5: The Unsung War
    • Atelier Iris, AI2: The Azorth of Destiny, AI3: Grand Phantasm
    • Colony Wars, Colony War: Vengence, CW III: Red Sun
    • Tecmo's Deception, Kagero: Deception 2, Deception III, Trapt
    • Dynasty Warriors 2, DW3, DW4, DW5: Empires
    • God of War, GoW II, GoW: Chains of Olympus
    • Grand Theft Auto, London, 2, III, Vice City, Liberty City Stories
    • Hitman Trilogy
    • Jak and Daxter, Jak 2, Jak 3
    • Kessen, II, III
    • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, PoP: Warrior Within, Pop: The Two Thrones, PoP (360), PoP: The Forgotten Sands, PoP: The Fallen King
    • Ratchet and Clank, Ratchet Deadlocked, R&C: Going Commando, R&C: Up Your Arsenal
    • Road Rash, II, III
    • SMT: Persona, SMT: FES Persona 3, SMT: Devil Summoner, SMT: Devil Summoner 2, SMT: Nocturne
    • Sly Cooper and the Thievious Raccoonous, SC2: Band of Thieves, SC3: Honor Among Thieves
    • Splinter Cell, SC: Chaos Theory, SC: Pandora Tomorrow, SC: Double Agent, SC: Essentials
    • Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, Year of the Dragon
    • Suikoden, III, IV, V, Tactics
    • Tomb Raider, II, III, TR: Chronicles, TR: The Angel of Darkness, TR: Underworld
    • Trauma Center: Under the Knife, TC: Second Opinion, Trauma Team


    I won't bother listing any of the unplayed ones I have only 2 installments of (which isn't quite as bad, really). Anyone else here in the same position?

    In truth, I've played less than an hour of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Grand Theft Auto III and Splinter Cell, but I barely think that counts. I own all of the Devil May Cry games as well, but I've played about half of the original, so I consider myself somewhat versed in that series.

    You should feel ashamed for not having played Sly Cooper. Oh, and God of War isn't that bad.

    Only series that applies for me is Onimusha. Just haven't sat down with any of them yet.

    I buy a lot of compilations, so I have a lot of franchise games I've never played:

    Wizardry after part II
    Might and Magic after part III
    pretty much every AD&D game on the PC
    Half the games on the Capcom Classics Collections. I have the entire Ghost n' Goblins trilogy but never played past level one in any of 'em.

    About the only franchise I've actually been good about are R-Type, Mario, Sonic and Zelda--every game in those I have I've played a fair bit, if not extensively.

    Most series? Of the ones I've bought, at least. Star Ocean is probably the only series of a significant size (5 games, in its case) where I can say I've beaten every single one. Not surprisingly, it's my favorite series. Although even there I've yet to bother to play through the Director's Cut version of SO3 or the PSP version of SO2. I also haven't played SO3 or the remake of SO1 in English (played the imports before they were localized). So I even kind of fail with my own favorite series, haha.

    Yeah, I don't know. Sly just never made it into the queue.

    Only series that applies for me is Onimusha. Just haven't sat down with any of them yet.
    I love Onimusha 1 and 2. 3 Demon Seige was disappointing, and I only played a few hours of Dawn of Dreams, but I didn't exactly love it. I didn't hate it either. I've ended Samurai's Destiny more than any game last generation (besides racers and shooters like Rez).

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    Resident Evil. I have all the Gamecube ports and even the Wii version of RE4, and I have yet to play any of them.

    One in particular actually is the Final Fantasy series, this doesn't apply much anymore now that I've played through and beaten most of them, but I decided a few years back to collect all but XI, XIII and never cared to get XIV. I finally sat down over time and beat I, II, IV, VI and VII.

    The Jak & Daxter trilogy, I just only started the first one awhiel back but never got far and kinda drifted away, I want to get back into it.

    Commander Keen. I basically own the whole set.. But yet.. I never played any but the first, shame on me..

    Leisure Suit Larry. Beat the first, started the second, never really got far in it and didn't touch the later ones, I plan to change that. Eventually..

    The Ultima series, man I own every Ultima up to VII, both parts of VII and I own some of the spinoff titles even, but of course I only sat through and beat the first one. Barely started the second and didn't get anywhere because I had other games I wanted to play, but never came back to it. I really should fix this.

    Metroid and Kirby. Own way too many versions of them across many systems and have never even played one.

    The RE series is one of my very favorites (through 4 anyways). Give yourself 10 minutes to get used to the controls, turn out the lights, and enjoy a nicely paced puzzle-heavy adventure. Outside of 4 they're all very similar, but the formula works.

    For me, Final Fantasy. I've got several complilations on PS1 I haven't played, as well as several PS2 versions. X is the only one I've played through since FF III on the SNES.

    Castlevania. I have almost every title, but have played roughly half. I've actually completed maybe half a dozen.

    Zelda for me. I have the GC N64 comp, Wii Twilight Princess, Link's Awakening (regular and DX), Minish Cap, and one of the GBC games, none of which I have played. I beat the first game and LTTP, got to the end boss on Zelda 2, and have stalled in the middle of Phantom Hourglass (I had to look up the title, for God's sake).

    None off the top of my head, which is troubling to say considering my backlog...

    This is one of those topics where you half want to congratulate the OP for bringing it up and with the remainder curse that their fingers should fall off... Why?

    I worded the topic poorly; a lot of responses are examples of a typical backlog situation. I actually meant when you own several installments in a series and you've never played ANY of the games in the series at all.
