I recently picked up Broken Sword 5 as part of a humble bundle. Point and click adventure, mystery theme, sounds like I would enjoy the game. But I've never played any game in the series, and I was wondering how important the earlier games are to the story, which would be worth playing first, and if fans of the series think I should skip 3 and 4, or if the story won't make sense if I do.
I know a lot of fans didn't care for the change in gameplay controls introduced in the 3rd and 4th games, but are they really as bad as others suggest, and how important are they to the story?
As said, I already own the fifth game, and all the other games are part of the steam sale right now for only 1.50 each, so I'd like to know where I should start and what I should or shouldn't skip.
Play 1, 2 and 5? Play the whole series in order? Just play 5 and see how that is? What would you suggest?
