Do I need to get my memory checked?
Posted By: KaviDate: 12/13/11 9:21 p.m.

Hello everyone,

I'm pretty sure this is my first post on here, and I'm pleased to see this forum is still extant.

My question for you diehards is this: If I can't remember the plot of Marathon 1, 2, and Infinity *despite* the fact that I have I've conquered them (although that was years ago), is that valid evidence to show I have a memory problem, OR is it simply that these plots can easily slide past the majority of players?

Tangentially:
Is it just me or was Marathon the most convoluted plot *ever* in a videogame trilogy?
If not, let me know. Because I feel like I need to get my memory checked.

To Clarify:
It's not like I can't remember places I went. I remember being on the Marathon, running that maze, and trying to defend the ship, but the memories soon degrade into images of switches and lava. The plot is lost.

As I said, it was many years ago. I was probably a teen at the time. Did I simply play the game at the wrong time in my life?

Also, I'm in the middle of writing my first novel (about 40K words in) and I sense the plot arc could be a source of inspiration to me, but I simply don't have the time to play through all 3 games again. Is reading the story section of the site enough?

thanks guys,
Gheritt
