Never played a Far Cry game, and I usually try to play a game series in order. I can get Far Cry 2 for about $5 on 360. Or should I just wait a bit to clear out some backlog and get FC3 when it's cheaper?

Well if you like to play a series in order, I don't think 2 OR 3 are the best places to start.

Go with Farcry 3; it's incredible.

I'd say get Far Cry 2 for now and get 3 when it's cheaper. FC2 will likely be hard to play after playing the vastly improved sequel. The game has aged though and some people don't really like it. I played it in 08 and absolutely loved it but the times have changed.

I haven't even played 3 and I would pick it over 2. 2 is an awful mess of a game.

2 is frustrating compared to 3. So do what Foge mentioned and go with 2 first. While some of the mechanics are infurating (extremelty accurate enemies that spawn every time you are more than 20 feet away from an outpost, guns jamming, etc) its still a good game in its' own right, and deserves a play through, if nothing else than to be able to truly appreciate Farcry 3 all the more.

Far Cry 2 was a very divisive game where you either love it or hate it.

Far Cry 3 seems to be loved by everyone.

If I were you I'd think of it like this. Definitely get Far Cry 3 at some point as it sounds like a great game. If you are curious in getting Far Cry 2 you might as well get that as well since it's only $5 and at that price even if it sucks who cares. I wouldn't think of it as one or the other.

I realized what I had written a couple seconds after I pushed "post." lol I'm guessing Far Cry 1 is pretty antiquated by this point. But then again, I know nothing about the game, so maybe I'm wrong. Either way, it sounds like I'm not missing a ton by skipping on FC2.

Skip FC2. It gets boring quickly. The story isn't connected anyways. FC3 is a vast improvement.

2 sucks. 3 is amazing.

I had way more fun playing FC2 than I had playing FC. Those damned mutants ruined FC for me.
I haven't played FC3 yet, but FC2 is a fun game on its own. Ambushing a convoy with IEDs and picking off the survivors with a Dragunov is something you just don't get to do very often in a game.

I never finished Farcry 2 it was just too boring, horrible gameplay, guns never worked and enemies always knew where you were as well as had insane accuracy from wherever. FC3 the better game.. but yea you can wait for a price drop as well the awesomeness of the game isn't gonna change if you wait.

far cry 3 is more fun than 2 for a majority of people.
3 is less frustrating and is easier to beat 100%
i enjoyed both but ultimately enjoyed 3 more.
2 has a few unsolved major issues that annoyed most gamers.

Skip Far Cry 2 entirely. Awful, awful game.

Go with Predator and Far Cry 3 on Xbox 360.
