001: Six Degrees of Playstation (Part 1)
Introductions and Other Such Things

Hey True Trophies residents! Before I get into the meat of the blog, I wanted to say 'hello' as I am new around here. I've been a Playstation fan for a while, but jumped over to PC/Nintendo for the majority of this console generation until I recently decided it was time to revisit the Sony domain and, more specifically, the ever-increasing list of choice exclusives on offer. Can't deny I'm excited to play Spider-Man real soon.

Now onto the blog!

Six Degrees of Playstation

I began my newest Playstation journey by playing one of my favorite series from the PSOne era; Spyro the Dragon. As I finshed up the first game and moved into Ripto's Rage, I got the sudden idea to have a little extra fun with determining which games to play and in which order. I decided to play my own version of Six Degrees of Separation, or, as others may refer to as, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

For those who haven't hear of either, the idea of Six Degrees of Separation is the idea that all living things and everything else in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. Or in the case of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between an arbitrary Hollywood actor and prolific actor Kevin Bacon in a maximum of six moves.

So, as it applies to my personal goal, I want each game I play to connect in some way to the next game in line. Because six degrees would be too easy to connect one game to another, and because the subject are games rather than people, I'm going to require one game to be directly connected to the next one in some way.

For example, so far on my account I have:

Spyro the Dragon -----> Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage -----> Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon

Obviously each game is connected to the next as they are sequels. From Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon, I moved onto Ratchet and Clank (PS4) as Insomniac are the developers of both games (yes, I know Insomniac are technically not the developers of the remakes, but they WERE of the original versions...so, kinda give me a break there, eh? laugh)

Of course, it wouldn't be a game without some ground rules...

- Publishers do NOT count - it would be too easy to connect games with publishers a la Activision - connections have to be from developers only!!
- Connections can be anything from sequels to genres to some really obscure connections - but they have to be legit connections!
- Connections have to change at a reasonable rate - for example, if I connect one game to another because they are "open-world" games, I can't sit and play 30 open-world games in a row - that would be too easy.
- This is just for fun, so I need to make an attempt to make some connections really unique, otherwise it would get somewhat tedious/droll after a while.
- I will make adjustments to the ground rules here and there as the pattern continues, but I will make every effort to keep the above core rules intact. I will also work on getting the formatting of this blog down to a clean template.

So, here's where I currently stand:

1) Spyro the Dragon -------> Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage sequel
2) Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage --------> Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon sequel
3) Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon --------> Ratchet and Clank (PS4) developer
4) Ratchet and Clank (PS4) -------> Ratchet and Clank HD franchise/series
5) Ratchet and Clank HD -------> Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando HD sequel **Current location**

My next anticipated games coming up are:
Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal HD, Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Spider-Man, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Just Cause 4

If this sounds interesting and you'd like to follow along my journey and to see how long I can keep the connection last, feel free to follow this blog for future regular updates!

Sewa o suru!
"Take care!"
