this game can be a little hard to get into if you're not used to older pc games, it took me multiple attempts to finally be able to enjoy it but god i'm so glad i did. this game is beyond great. the amount of work put into letting the player do whatever they want to complete objectives is at times astounding, and there will be plenty of moments where you're taken aback at just how in depth it gets. this game also isn't afraid to delve into and discuss openly the themes and ideas its world evokes, and they make for some incredibly philosophical discussions between players.
a lot of games in the past five years have claimed that ~every decision matters~ but this game, a 15 year old game, is the only game where i feel like i can say with complete certainty and honesty, that every decision matters
