Devil May Cry

10 Video Game Franchises You Should Not Play in Order

Story and chronology have never been Devil May Cry’s strong suit, which is good news for those looking to enjoy the series outside of its release order.

Since the release of the first game in the series, Devil May Cry has played fast and loose with when each new entry takes place in terms of the game’s story.

Devil May Cry 3 technically takes place at the series’ start, followed by Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 4 and then Devil May Cry 5.

Devil May Cry 2, meanwhile, takes place an indeterminate amount of time after every other entry, and doesn’t carry over any story elements from the other games save for some of the broader strokes of gameplay and themes.

It’s also considered highly skippable even by diehard fans, with many pointing to its gameplay and design as some of the most repetitive in the series.

To that end, it’s recommended you should play the third game first, followed by the first, fourth and fifth.

If you find you’ve enjoyed every second of every game after completing the fifth entry, then you should be able to glean some fun from Devil May Cry 2.
