The original Serious Sam games, First and Second Encounter, were originally on PC and then ported to the original Xbox. This is where I played them over and over again. People have labeled this a non-thinking man's shooter, but I disagree. Knowing how to handle huge hoards of enemies simultaneously heroically takes thought. So think about that. If you just want to try it out and play the highlights, go for Second Encounter and the newest Serious Sam 3. I would do it in that order to build upon the old with the new. My least favorites, but still liked were the little arcade spin-off and the Jewel of the Nile DLC. JOTN is short and more puzzle than action. Except that the last level finale made it a lot better. People are clearly unaware how fun this game is with such few rentals. Rent if you like fun fast paced action.
