-can you honestly understand or appreciate a game series if you skip the first game?

it depends on the series, but I would say not really.
Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Mario, Sonic, Assassin's Creed, Doom, TES, Batman games, Final Fantasy... none of those series require it. I would say a series where you need to start from game one is the exception rather than the general rule.
