I personally enjoyed the story, characters and setting in both Assassin's Creed and Uncharted: Drakes Fortune to their sequels, however the sequels def improved on more important things like gameplay and graphics.

Well most of the time, the first game is always better..

I beg to differ. Metal Gear Solid 3 was far and wide the best of the franchise, Zelda:ALTTP was also a sequel fav, and really I could go on and on.

I'd say this sentiment applies more to movies, sitcoms, and books more so than it does interactive media. I would argue that game sequels get it right more often than not.

I chalk this up to quaint feeling of nostalgia than anything else. Things usually seem to be more fond in memory than they were in reality.

Yes...the first game IS always the first.

Does public education include English anymore?
