IGN Has Released a Guide to the Kingdom Hearts Series

For any newcomer to Kingdom Hearts, picking up any game that is not a part of the main series is an incredibly daunting, overwhelming, and confusing task.

How is someone who knows nothing about Kingdom Hearts and has not been keeping up since the initial release in 2002 supposed to figure out what Re: Chain of Memories or 358/2 Days means? Or, at the very least, figure out which games are important enough to the main story to actually play?

IGN apparently has been asking the same question and put together this guide to the Kingdom Hearts series, so you can finally understand which games you should play and, if you are lucky, figure out what the names mean.
