So I noticed there wasn't one of these, I don't think. So I made one!

Oh, I love this series! I have really fond memories of the games, like that triumphant feeling you get when you finally solve a puzzle that really stumped you, or that bittersweet feeling you get after the credits roll at the end of the game. I also enjoyed PLvsPWAA, being a fan of both series.

I'd love to talk about the series with more fans of it

Yay! I've only played three games (Including the crossover.) but I really enjoy all the puzzles and such!

How would you rank the games? Just curious.

Oh, which ones have you played?

And do you mean like, in order of best to "worst" (quotes because none of them are bad in my opinion)? Because I'd have to think about that

I've recently gotten into this series and I actually finished Diabolical Box just yesterday! I'm loving it!

I'm going to get Unwound Future next chance I get.

I've been hearing around the same thing from everyone who's played Unwound Future, so yeah, I'm guessing that means it's a really great game. I really can't wait for it!

It came in the mail just this afternoon, so I've been playing that for awhile since. I'm already in love with it, needless to say.

I really need to get that one. My favorite out of the three I've played would have to be the Miracle Mask. Sure, sometimes the 3D graphics look a little odd, but it's still really charming and I like the story.

I watched a playthrough of the game on youtube a while back, knowing about Claire, and it didn't help. I still cried at the end.

You wouldn't expect a puzzle game to be so emotional! Then again, I guess that's the point... but still! Professor Layton is really an emotional series.

The ending of Diabolical Box already got to me, so... yeah. Unwound Future's gonna kill me.

Heck, the ending to every game in the series was just one feels trip after another to me! I shed so many tears that some of my family members started thinking I was weird   Ah well. They're great games, what can I really say? I am glad that they improved the touch screen sensitivity after CV and the letter/number input in later games, though. Those are really my only gripes with the early games. I thought everything else was pretty solid, and the whole series has become one of the ones that I hold very dearly.

So much so that I get sad sometimes, especially around autumn, that there won't be any more games as Azran Legacy (and technically PLvsPWAA) marked the finale of the series. I miss the thrill of a new game and the solutions that come with it, as well as the cast of characters we came to know and love.

Anyone wanna give their thoughts on Lady Layton? I'm not sure whether to be excited or disappointed. If it absolutely has to be without the professor himself, I'd much rather have had a game where you play as Luke or Flora or Emmy. Instead we get another of his kids, like Alfendi. And based on her appearance it seems like my HershEmmy ship is sinking faster by the minute

But anyway so long as there's puzzles, I might like to try it. It's been far too much time since there's been any new puzzles to solve. Hopefully we can revive this thread and keep it going this time?

I'm not sure what I think just yet, but as long as it has a good story and strong characters (traditional in the series,) then I think I'll like it!

Anyway, yesterday I finished playing Unwound Future. Hoo boy... all those warnings you guys gave me weren't kidding. Still recovering. But I loved it so much! Man, that was amazing! Absolutely tragic, but amazing.

Getting Last Specter as soon as my money allows it. And to be honest, I'm kinda looking forward to meeting [Jean Descole].

Yeah, UF is a real punch in the feels! But it is a great game. I dunno, I think I'll enjoy LL if, like you said, the story and characters are good just as they've always been. I just don't want the series to lose that heartfulness. (I'm sure that's not a word, but that's the best way I could describe it )

Last Specter is another good one, you'll love it! Though to be honest I refer to all PL games as good ones The series as a whole holds a special place in my heart and in my game collection

I started playing the series again, starting with Curious Village. I've been playing PL since they first came out in NA and I'm so thankful my mom decided to buy my a random DS game and picked CV. It actually kinda scared me the first time I played it, but I was only like nine years old.

Unwound Future is my favorite though. It's so good and gives so many feels.

I really love how, though PL's an underrated series there's still enough people who like it that I can bring it up on the streets and someone will know it. And I love how good the stories are too!

I finished Last Specter the other night! I'm loving the series more and more as I go on, and the end credits broke my heart. [Tony holding the pears by the lakeside especially.] And I love how they introduced Luke and Layton's relationship. And the soundtrack was pretty good too!

They don't have Miracle Mask in the area I'm in right now, so once I get back home I'll pick it up. It looks so good, I can't wait!

The fan favorite is Unwound Future/Lost Future

I personally started with Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright

I just started from the beginning of the series (Curious Village) to get into it, but I had a bunch of knowledge about the series prior to playing the game. ...It was actually the fact that they made a Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright game that got me excited about the series, since I loved the latter games. I'd recommend Curious Village if you think that the puzzles and mystery setting will be enough to get you started (some things in later games don't make as much sense if you don't start from the beginning,) but if you think you'd only play one game, then I'd recommend Unwound Future. Still, you'd probably enjoy the series more if you're okay with puzzle games, because otherwise, it may be difficult.

I'm seriously enjoying Miracle Mask right now! I just got introduced to [Randall, and from what everyone in the game is saying about him, I have a feeling the game's going to get interesting.]
