: Second, the original Marathon never really had a dull moment, and part of

: less boring if you're on a map that just looks good. Personally, I've
: never liked the Marathon 2 textures, and I think Skinner Box is really
: visually lackluster even by Marathon 2 standards gloomy, drab, and
: uninspired. By contrast, the original Marathon made you feel almost as if
: you were walking through the Nostromo dark and moody, but in a way that
: builds tension and keeps you engaged.

Maybe you'd prefer the M1 version of this scenario over this. I know I enjoyed it, for what it's worth, but it still had that amateur homebrew fan-maps off-the-web aftertaste to it.

: And yes, I was a lot younger when I started working on Tour of Duty I
: barely even remember those days. Now I'm almost an adult; how times
: change!

almost? How old is legal adulthood where you're from? I refuse to believe you're younger than or in the age range of, say, Lion O Cyborg.
