I haven’t played SR since part 2. Those first two games were great. I have all the games since 2 from GwG just haven’t got around to them. From what I heard they went pretty out there.

If I had to rank them I would go 2,3,4,1. I remember the original Saints Row blowing my mind on the Xbox 360 as I flew through a windshield after a head on collision, with massive v-sync tearing all the while.

I can still remember being impressed by the first game that if you double tapped Y to exit a vehicle he jumped out more quickly. Those games really did get absurd. Would like it if this new iteration was something of a soft reboot and as dbled34 said, went back to basics....

4 is by far the funniest in the series but 1 and 2 the better games overall

I remember 2 being amazing, but enjoyed them all. 2 was great because it came out around the same time that GTA 4 did. GTA was going for that more realistic feel, while SR2 stuck to the refreshing formula of mindless fun. (Rockstar games are sooo overrated).

I'm glad to see the series isn't dead. Though I enjoyed Agents of Mayhem ( attempted Spiritual reboot) I'm glad its lukewarm reception didn't kill the series.

Thinking on it, I think I only ever got to Saint's Row the Third, and maybe played a little bit of 4 (that was the one where you were the president and got alien super powers right?) At any rate, I'd like for it to just be a more scaled back version while not losing all of it's craziness, but just pump the brakes a bit, meaning I'd rather play as a no name thug working his way up the ranks of a gang than starting the game as president of the united states...

I’ve loved all the Saints Row games, they are actually pretty different from one another which is rare for sequels
