Probably just wasn't your type of game. I found it to be a very enjoyable experience.

Please don't add water to Amnesia 2. frown.gif

I beat Amnesia 1. Only game that was labelled as "scary" that truely scared me. However, water is a different story for me. I'm terrified of deep dark water (AKA Dear Ester). If they put something like that in a game like Amnesia, I probably couldn't progress.

There are people that would 100% disagree. If you knew what to expect, it was great. It's all about immersion, some people can't take games seriously enough to fully immerse themselves.

Well I guess it has to go in, then >=P

I really enjoyed Dear Esther the first time through. Such a pretty game. Inferring meaning is a great way to add thoughtfulness to your narrative.

I just started playing the 1st Amnesia and can not play for more than 5 mins. Amazing title.
