I agree. I recently played LSL2 & 3 and I amazed at how deep the character of Larry was in those games. I have played all of them over the years, but I really didn’t realize how poignant the series became towards the end of the third one. I too was disenchanted by Larry 5, but it seemed like Sierra was in a bad slump since a lot of Sierra games that year were average or below (like Space Quest 4 and King’s Quest 5). However, I rather enjoyed the two next incarnations, and I am really sad the franchise is gone. Maybe I’m in a minority, but I really like MCL, even though it’s a far cry from the original series. There’s a lot of humour and depth in the dialog scenes, which really are the game’s strong point.
