I kinda went back and fore on this but thinking about it, I don't think it does for me. The example that came to my mind was Devil May Cry 2. The original is near and dear to me, DMC3 is great and I like DMC4 and DmC for the most part. I don't seem to really care 'cause of the impact Devil May Cry 1 had on me, the series will always be right up there.
I don't hate FF13 but it's not great. Nonetheless, I still very much like FF. Same with SF.
