I do not skip games entirely, as sometimes I do not like modifications
that are made to future editions, or variations of games. I like to see
the development of things, and know why things were changed.
well there is LOTS of development history on this one :)

as she was playing against casual gamers not gamers who ultimately wanted
the game to be more like what it turned into when it became Gnostica)
