I think this game is a lot more enjoyable if you haven't played the OT. I mean at least it was in my case. I loved this game and I didn't really feel forced into anything. I guess I'm just a perfect fit for this MC lol. Because I didn't know any information about the OT I guess I didn't really expect or think about why this guy didn't know anything either. Of course I think if you input a later save then the MC should know more information, so people who have read the OT aren't so... negatively impacted by it.
