I tried hard to come up with a clever/stupid title for this thread and I believe I succeeded in that! Anyhoo, figured I should make a new thread for this, since the last "proper" discussion one is already over an year old and the game is finally coming out, on September 10th to be more specific.
My experience of Amnesia limits to being freaked out in the demo, watching some Let's Play videos and buying the full one from Steam sales last year (haven't played it properly yet, of course). Despite that, I still decided to buy AMFP, since there can't be enough (hopefully) good horror games.
Aaaand now that I'm waiting for this to come out, I'm trying to decide between whatever to play Dark Descent first or not. I'm kinda leaning towards "not" since I'd like to keep the gameplay experience fresh-ish and what with AMFP happening 60 years after the first game and has a different protagonist, it probably shouldn't be necessary to experience the first game in order to make sense of the plot, rite?
