there's a lot of new rpg comming out that are part of a series. like FFXII which is part of the FF series.
my question is, for the games i will list below, should i play the earlier games in the series (prequel) to understand the storyline? what i mean is, would a game be difficult to understand if i never played the games before that in the same series?
like FFXII, for example, has nothing to do with FFX. and Shadow hearts:FTNW's storyline also has nothing to do with the first two games. but understanding FFX-2 would be difficult if i never played FFX.
the games i wanna know about are the following:
-disgea 2 (played makai kingdom but not disgea 1)
-valkyrie profile 2
-Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner
