I can't really explain why I've never played a Splinter Cell game.
As a huge fan of Metal Gear Solid (at least the first and third installments), it would've made sense to check out the stealth game competition at some point, but it just never happened. Eventually, my lack of experience with the series acted as a deterrent for checking out the sequels. "I'll just pass on this series," I told myself. Splinter Cell: Conviction, though...I'm not going to be able to resist this one, and since Ubisoft seems to be treating this as a reboot of Splinter Cell, I'll be on board this month.
Anyone else joining Splinter Cell without any connections to its past?
