Opening quote:

Marathon is a series of groundbreaking Science Fiction First Person Shooters developed for the Macintosh by Bungie Software. The game has a ridiculously in-depth story even compared to modern games, and its plot can get very complex and sometimes even headache-inducing. In the pseudo-random clues provided by in-game terminals, it comes close to William Gibson ambiguity: lots of surreal textual scenes (in the middle of convincing runtime errors) will scratch your cortex; plausible quotes from technology design documents, history records, and standards guidelines that make you wish no AIs will ever be put in working order.

Heh....

Cheers
