It's called different tastes; in case you're wondering. I've played everything too, but I didn't enjoy Eschalon Book II. The silly meta-gaming, "Play always with one foot up your ass and you'll earn a 20% bonus to your end score" turned me off. I'm glad other folks enjoyed that but it makes me 100% unlikely to buy Eschalon III, if that stuff is in there.

I believe I'm a minority here as most folks on the Watch enjoyed that aspect or just ignored it. I felt the whole game was designed poorly because of that silliness and enjoyed Book I much more.
