Sequels are nothing new, but the topic has come up quite a bit recently, and it got me thinking about something in particular, and that is first installment revisitation. By that I mean, going back to play the first game in a series only after the sequel has come out. Oftentimes people miss games when they’re first released and for one reason or another they just never get around to playing them, but then the sequel comes out, and they feel compelled to revisit the first game.
With so many high profile sequels, and even threequels coming out over the next few months, this situation is bound to come up for a number of gamers. So what I want to know is what have been some sequels that have compelled you check out the previous title in a particular series? Has there been a case where you've preferred the original game to the sequel?
