When I get into a series I like to read them all and right now I just don't have time to get through Discworld. I did enjoy the game, don't know which one I played though. I didn't realise there were three
There's really no reason to be put off by the huge number of books into the series, mostly because they are pretty neatly broken up into smaller sub-series, which mostly have 3-5 books in each and can be read together. Reading all of Discworld is a pretty large endeavor -- though the books themselves aren't that long -- but getting through the books about each of the characters is a bit less daunting.
There are some which are a bit more 'standalone', such as "Small Gods" or "Moving Pictures", but most of the books fall under either The Wizards, The Witches, Death, Rincewind, The Watch, or more recently Moist von Lipwig.
