How should I formulate argument for Marathon?
Posted By: ErnieDate: 5/15/02 4:54 p.m.

Recently I've been trying to bring my friends around to thinking about Marathon the way I (and most of the Story Forum) thinks about it.

The argument I got from 'Shane' is that he believes that Marathon is pretty much like Doom as far as storyline goes. He believes that the 'mission briefing' at the start of each level in Doom (I really cant remember if there WAS a mission briefing..) can encompass as much story as Marathon's terminals.

This was the begining of my resent towards my friend.

Sufficent to say, he thinks Marathon is 'ok', but thinks its story requires too much 3rd part information to be 'good'. He also cited the Doom novels as sources of story that give doom credability.

Help me formulate a good argument against this milarkie. Mark? Hamish? Even Mr. Blaine's opinions would be welcome. Being able to bash my buddy over the head with metaphysical analogys might confuse Shane enough to win me the argument.

;D I'm just kidding...I respect your Collage educated opinions as much as anyones.

Eagerly awaiting responses while working,
-Ernie [@work]
