Like unmarked spoilers in a post or perhaps making a topic title a major spoiler from the first game. Do they need to be marked? Especially if the premise of the sequel spoils the ending of the original.

For example, Dishonored 1 spoilers on Dishonored 2's board.

All spoilers must be properly marked and properly warned at all times

Example:

Spoilers for Dishonored 1

We're surrounding you. We see you, but you probably don't see us. And if you see us, we're not letting on that we see you.

The only exception would be if the sequel's promo material (trailers, synopsis, etc) already give it away (granted, it would still be courteous to hide the spoilers anyway).

i.e...
Game 1: hero dies at the end
Game 2: (trailer) "Now that hero has died..."

This was more in line with what I was asking, thx
