Digimon persists and is as good as a franchise, despite what some people believe. Digimon Survive is the latest installment in the series, and it has been well received by critics and fans alike.
The franchise spans multiple series and storylines. It is also from a few years ago. For this reason, some players may wonder how to play the game so that they can experience the whole story.
This can happen for the most part. However, there are also some games that don’t fit a certain story or world setting.
Digimon games that fit into 3 main categories
When looking at the games of the franchise in perspective, they basically fit into three categories. These categories include the Digimon World series, the Digimon Stories series, and unaffiliated side and indie games that are not necessarily tied to the aforementioned stories.
Regardless, if players want to, they can play through main series for their stories and then enjoy the replays in chronological order. It was up to them, but the World and Stories series established normative and holistic stories to experience thoroughly.

The games of the franchise are varied and most of them are quite long. However, die-hard fans will likely enjoy most of the titles.
It’s unclear when the next installment of the franchise will be announced, but players have plenty of games to go through before this happens.
Self-existent Digimon there are hours of content that players can enjoy. Cyber Sleuth titles also have a large amount of content that can take quite a while to process.
This is expected from most Japanese style RPG games. However, the collection, training, and battle loops of the franchise’s titles tend to take more time rather than less. Similarly, the experience is often rewarding, especially as the game’s stories, progression, and mysteries are solved in the digital world.
No matter what game the player is re-experienced or for the first time, the most important thing is to enjoy the franchise for all it has offered over the years. Hopefully it will continue to trend up in the future.
