Finished DmC and absolutely loved it. A very early runner up for my Game of the Year. I want to play the rest of the series now but not sure whether to start with DMC1 or DMC3 (since it's a prequel to DMC1). DMC3 seems to follow some of the plotlines set up by DmC(2013) -- though I realize it's a reboot of sorts.
So my question is: Does DMC3 stand up on its own, narratively, or should I start with DMC1 first to better appreciate DMC3's prequel story?
