So I got this game and I really like it. However, I also got into PC gaming just this last week so naturally I never got the chance to play the first one. When I started a new game I got a msg asking me to import a Witcher 1 save but being that I don't have one I just exit that and went on with my game. Naturally I thought it will just be a bunus money or expiance points or something to reward players who played the first one. Going through through the prologue and the first chapter I didn't pay much attention to this "main-hero-has-amnesia" theme intersecting with the main plot line until it came to me that this might be due to me not playing the first game.
What I would like to know if this is a plot line that get explored in case you don't have a Witcher 1 save file or is it a plot line that gets explored regardless. Are the events and people that you get to know throughout the flashback scene events that happened during the first game or are they events that happened between the first and second.
On a different subject, I am enjoying this game immensely. There are actual consequences to your actions in the game and I am really enjoying on how the game gives genuine impact to the decision you make and how conversations flow. I am also enjoying on how the quest system works. I just love how the developer just assumes the player is cable of thinking on their own and not pandering to the lowest common denominator.
Mind you that I right now I am only at the very beginning of chapter 2, I just entered the dwarves town, so please no spoilers beyond that point.
