I’m the kind of person that hates jumping into a series in the middle and felt that I’d be missing something if I didn’t know the back-story. Thankfully, other members of the ZTGD team convinced me otherwise and I didn’t miss out on the game. However, one sentiment I heard (and expressed) multiple times was a desire to play the original Crysis on consoles. In an extremely fortunate turn of events, those of us that prefer a gamepad to a mouse and keyboard (and didn’t have liquid-cooled PCs when the game launched in 2008) can finally play Crytek’s masterpiece.
