What is the best place to start playing the X games?
I got interesed in the X series after the whole 'X Rebirth' controversy, which is quite an awkward way to be introduced to it, but it seems like a very interesting series.

Of course you can start with the first game of the X games (X: Beyond the Frontier), but it has a very old graphic, so you may start with X2: The Threat. Then X3: Reunion, X3: Terran Conflict and X3: Albion Prelude.
Most of the story in X2: The Threat and X3: Reunion.

I gotten the X-Superbox over a month ago, after surfing reviews on youtube. During the years of X-universe games, my time was taken over by some other games and life, so I'm behind. Looked at X-X2 and guess I'll play them for maybe nostalgic sake after I've reached, say, 500+ or more hrs plaing X3series thouroughly first, I'm sure. Am hoping it's pretty much like choosing which to watch first in the StarWars movies for, say, someone new to the franchise?

Thanks guys, I'm thinking to start with X2 and work my way up.

My question is should I get the X Superbox or x2 standalone? Are any of the other X games a waste of time?

Yes, I don't know how much it is currently on Steam, but last I checked, it was half of what I paid for my X-SuperBox on Amazon. It comes with Bonus pack, too! Check it out, and if it's under 20 bucks, I'd go for it if I were you. GL and let me know how it goes, too.
( Atm, am just waiting for the arrival of my Saitek x52p controllers while reading up on XRM and MARS mods at the forum on egosoft site. Don't want to get in anything till I've set up the saitek . :D )
