    Default Favourite games in different series

    Think of some video game series you enjoy. What are your favourite games from those series? And I mean if you had to pick ONE game from each series.

    You don't need to have played all of the games in the series, but at least two

    Final Fantasy - Final Fantasy IX
    Xenosaga - Xenosaga Episode III
    Atelier games - Atelier Totori
    Suikoden - Suikoden V
    Legend of Zelda - Lgened of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    Dark Cloud - Dark Cloud 2/Dark Chronicle
    Tales series - Tales of Symphonia
    Record of Agarest War - Record of Agarest War (although I've heard 2 improves some issues I've had so this could change soon enough)
    Star Ocean - Star Ocean the Last Hope
    Tekken - Tekken 6
    Harvest Moon - Harvest Moon A Tale of Two Towns
    Pokemon - Pokemon X

    It's a good thing I liked Fallout 1, or the fallout would have been terrible.

    Oh boy, here we go. The number in brackets indicate how many of that series I have played. For this, a minimum of two games in the series:

    Final Fantasy (8): Final Fantasy XII
    Legend of Zelda (2): Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
    Pokemon (8): Pokemon X
    Command & Conquer (2): Red Alert 2
    Mass Effect (3): Mass Effect 2
    Sonic Series (2): Sonic Advance 3
    Super Mario Bros (4): Super Mario 3D Land
    Ace Attorney Series (7): Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney/Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations
    Professor Layton Series (6): Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney/Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
    Dynasty Warriors (4): Dynasty Warriors 5
    Super Smash Bros. (2): Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Worms Series (3): Worms Armageddon
    Mario Kart (3): Mario Kart 7
    SimCity (2): SimCity 4
    Grand Theft Auto (5): Grand Theft Auto IV
    Fable (2): Fable Anniversary
    The Sims (3): The Sims 3

    There were other games which are part of a series, of which I've only played one of, such as DMC: Devil May Cry, for example. I don't have a massive series list, I generally tend to stick to my favorite series, unless I'm introduced to them.

    Like Formy, I've played a lot of games from series but not any others from that particular series, so didn't include those. I've also played a lot of series where all the games sort of melded into one for me because it was so long ago or something, and then there are games where there's sort of a series but they aren't official, but are all in the spirit of the same intention but with different names and no story/character ties between them, so I didn't include them either.

    Oh, Wolf's post reminds me that I forgot the Seiken Densetsu series. Seiken Densetsu 3 probably just barely edges out Secret of Mana for me, but it's close.

    Nice to see more love for the original Mass Effect. I"m used to seeing 2 highlighted as people's favorites. Good game and all, but I always preferred the story and cast in the original to 2's.
