    Start with the first one, Crossworlds is generally considered the best of these, but I think the first one is also worth playing.

    Play The Legend and then Crossworlds (it includes Armored Princess with a few tweaks).
    Warrior of the North is a boring slog, Dark Side is a buggy mess (or at least it was back in 2015).

    I think Dark Side has the best premise in theory. I haven't played it yet, though, but I think they'd have fixed the worst bugs by now.

    Just get the 3d sands of time trilogy. They're all worth it in their own way.

    That later one... Forgotten Sands?... was mostly hated for the always online DRM it had at the time, but it's far from a bad game. Basically Sands of Time but with better graphics. I believe the DRM was toned down or removed, so might be worth looking at.

    Forgotten sands is a much easier version of the Sands of Times games. I'd say, if you liked the Sands of Times trilogy especially the characters and story, give it a go because it's canon to the trilogy anyway.

    I personally don't like the fact that it's combat was more god of war-like than the previous games, but the POP games never had good combat. Sands of times combat is too easy and used to break from constant platforming, but it doesn't combine platforming and combat like the later games do.

    They also slightly changed how the time rewind powers worked which I really didn't like. There's an inherent lag to to when you press the button and when it activates, and iirc it isn't as flexible with how much you can rewind.

    The father battle is hard if you don't know that weird dagger move.

    Big sci-fi strategy game sale, though of course GOG label half their strategy games "role-playing" or "action" for some reason.

    If you want something not obvious, King's Bounty is good. If you want something fairly unique, Etherlords 2 (not 1) and Evil Islands. Eador: Genesis is good if you've already played the Heroes and Age of Wonders series.
