playing games for story is like watching porn for story
.....you're doing it wrong
In general I agree, but the Layton games have a good enough story(for a game) and similar enough gameplay across the series where you may as well play them in story order if you can. --- Reading: The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East - R.

Endgame, I thought that "games" like this were not games?
Either way, yes, they do have a story, as has been said and explained. And, I have played the first two,. and I would say that the story is pretty good. :3 The ending of Diabolical Box made me cry a little. I am part way through Unwound Future, and I can say that it is both very interesting, and has more story so far than the past games.
It's not advised to start at Miracle Mask; you should AT LEAST play The Last Specter first. --- The two most beautiful words in any language: I forgive.
