Best Nintendo Franchise Entry Points
The best starting points for Nintendo’s biggest series, according to James O’Connor.
If you’ve never jumped into a game series, it’s hard to know where to start. Maybe Mario passed you by somehow; Fire Emblem, from the outside, looks like something you really need to know going in; Metroid is extremely intimidating. Nintendo has a reputation for being ‘for everyone’, but a lot of their games still assume a lot of knowledge from the player. Getting into a new series is easier if you have the right entry point – start with one of these games and you’ve got a good shot of finding out whether these series are for you or not.
