Actually, since you're qualifying it as the finest "game fiction,"
I'm not sure I can disagree.  It didn't involve me, but now we're
into matters of personal taste, and some people will always like
meat more than fish.  :)

Again, since you qualify it ("other, large commercial games"), I
really can't disagree here either, damn it.


Not because it wasn't interesting, but simply because I don't have
an informed-enough opinion to comment.  Nice to hear from you,
Zak. :)
