The story's the best, sure, but the gameplay really hasn't aged well, but this is only mostly apparent if you have played any of the others first.

Yeah I really can't go back to 1 or 2 after playing 3 and 4.

Yes he should because objectively it's not. The gameplay is the worst in the series and the stories in Disgaea aren't worth playing the games for.


Don't listen to this heathen.



:lol: If the story is that important to anyone then they can watch it on youtube but the gameplay in D1 is basic and not done well compared to every other game in the series. The story is definitely better than D2 D3 and DD2.

Well if THAT's what you meant, sure, I guess.

I think a simpler statement would have been "a game's story isn't worth putting up with bad/outdated gameplay."

Yeah, because I interpreted his statement as "these games have crap stories".

Watching a story in a video isn't the same as watching it play out yourself.
It just isn't.
Although if you really did care that much, you could do that.

I ended up doing that for Fuka and Desco Mode. Didn't bother to buy it until much later.

Sorry I should've worded that better. Well D3 and DD2 have bad stories.

@Ring

I know it's not the same but I would rather watch D1's story on youtube than play the game.

You'd miss out on some cameos but that's it. I'd say you only really need to play Disgaea if you want D2, there you'd miss out on a lot of the humor without knowing the main characters from the first game well.

I did. I just went for 3 first. Then I played the others. Haven't played 4 though. But you don't really need to play any of the previous ones to understand the one you're currently playing. Just that some extra scenarios might not make sense to you. But for 2 you might want to play 1. One of the main characters in 2 is from 1.

if you plan on playing Disgaea 2 or Disgaea Dimensions then i highly suggest Disgaea 1
also Disgaea 4 will make abit more sense if you play Disgaea 1 also because a Disgaea 1 char plays a role in Disgaea 4
Spoiler:
Flonne


but Disgaea isn't what people call a serious story its pretty much a goofy weird story with alot of humor

im not opposed to you skipping Disgaea 1 and 2 if thats what you decide to do i just want you to know that if you care for story you should play them in order
DLC is just an excuse for devs to hold back content remember once something is on the internet they never forget and never forgive

You should play 1 and 2 if you can because in the first two games you equip increasingly stronger pieces of armor and this may sound crazy but the armor actually protects you from the badguys.

Disgaea 1 cannot be skipped, it is law.

2 is pretty good but doesn't follow the same story
