When a sequel is coming out, do you try to play previous before (either first time or again)?
 
just wondering if you like to play the direct sequel or at least the game that came before it in this modern era of games. i usually do, but that also takes time, but i think i like to get familiar with previous, especially if i beat and liked, sometimes not always possible with lengthy games, but most FPS pretty easy to do.

so do you?

Not as a matter of practice, but Iíve certainly done it. I replayed Knack before the sequel dropped. I canít remember if it was in anticipation of the Ratchet and Clank reboot or something I did afterwards, but I did play through all the mainline games in 2015. I played through Gears of War 1-4 leading up to Gears 5. Iím planning on a complete Halo runthrough this summer before I tear into Infinity in November. There are probably more examples, but those are the ones that stick out in my head, anyway. Iím sure length has an impact. Iím not likely to replay a 30 hour+ game leading up to another 30 hour+ sequel.

Only if it's available on the current gen that I have hooked up and still holds some kind of interest. I didn't play Witcher 2 before firing up Witcher 3. I didn't play a lot of Daggerfall before moving on to Morrowind.

God of War and Castlevania. That's it.

Only if I have the previous games unplayed on my current console. So, not very often.

If itís a game I haven't played or finished then Iíll try to, but itís hard to find a lot of time to play games, let alone replay them.
