I would agree. Usually in a computer game, even moderate text is kind of cringey, and I have to tell myself to make allowances for game text. But not here, everything I’ve read to this point I’d be fine with if I were reading a book, a well-written book… But I understand that some gamers do not like to read books, or do not want anything book-like in their games.
