I was wondering in which order I should play the missions of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (the first title of the series). The game offers you to play both, the orc as well as the human campaign right from the beginning. However, the orc campaign appears first in the menu.
As far as I understand, the storylines of the orc and human campaigns run in parallel mission per mission, with the ability to win the war with either the orcs or the humans in the end (just like alternative endings). According to this, a GameFAQ Walkthrough by XellKhaar (II. Basics - 2.05: Before you play) suggests to play the campaign missions alternating, starting with human level 1 then orc level 1 and so on.
However, one questions remains: Is there any good reason to start the alternation with the humans? Or are the missions maybe so much in parallel that it doesn't make any difference story-wise and I could also start with the orcs?
