|Journey Back to Marathon|

Yo peeps, I believe it's been *7* (ha ha no kiddin') years since I've played Marathon. I've decided I would write about the experience (cuz imma nut). So follow along with me as I post my notes here.
I've been a big fan of Bungie since Alex came over to my booth at MacWorld 1992. I traded him a Talking Moose for Minotaur: The Labyrinths of Crete.
Aside: Minotaur was a 3rd person, 2D, top down locked view, spells and artifacts, PvP, multiplayer Mac game. It was very fast paced. If you wanted to stay alive you had to move, man, and keep on moving. It had that "run and gun" primordial FPS-ness flavor now that I recall it.
So over 16 years ago Bungie released Marathon (12/21/1994). I was in an web design startup which got me a brand new Mac and a copy of Marathon. On the down side I had to live on bread and water the next year. Oh happy days!
I remember: the camera bob made me seasick for about 5 minutes.
I remember: Fiddling with the first terminal and being blindsided. Doh.
I remember: Game recording blew my mind.
Here I go.
