Thomas McDermott: This is not the first time I've unknowingly dove headfirst into a series lacking knowledge of what lay ahead. I could probably say that about every game I play nowadays, as I've grown to love trying to go into games blind. I got sick of following the never ending hype train of trailer, preview, trailer, preview, trailer, trailer, trailer, trailer long ago. Some games are significantly more unwelcoming than others though, and build up a mythos around themselves and their fanbase, challenging newcomers to try and breakthrough. As a result, over the years I have developed a large list (sometimes a literal pile) of games I believed I'd never play, simply because I prejudged their content, and thought I could never enjoy them.
