Marathon





The Marathon Trilogy. Ah, yes. It came with my first computer, all three of the games. And a cheating program that my younger self made full use of. It's free now, so I've been playing it recently, and it is a lot different without infinite ammo for all of your crazy alien weaponry/killing instruments. I've found myself enjoying it sans god power though, so it really has stood the test of time for me.

For those into the Halo series it's interesting to note that this was Bungie's 2nd FPS, and when they ported it to Apple's Pippin it became their first ever console game.

If you want it, get it here. It's pretty cool.

  1. Funny that you should talk about Pippin - I never heard of it until this morning.

    I guess... I was sheltered.

    Now I need to go find one!
