Should I play AC3?
My PS3 died again recently. Seeing as I had everything backed up, I decided to just get a new system instead of reflowing again.
I went with the Assassins Creed 3 bundle, pretty much for the higher capacity hard drive. As many good things as I've heard about the AC franchise, I've just never been able to get into it.
My experience with it is a few attempts at AC1. Once on a PC where it was so buggy and lagged so badly it was unplayable. Then again a couple years later on a PS3 but didn't get roped in/ very far. I didn't dislike it per se, it just didn't really do much for me.
Seeing as I didn't get into the series too much, should I bother with 3? Why or why not? If I should play it, how necessary are the other games to my ability to follow what's going on? Would I need to play them in order?
