    For sure. I'm kind of disappointed in myself that I slept on it originally.

    When I was first introduced to Cleve's predecessor, the illustrious D.W. Bradley, I only did a continuous playthrough of 7 and 8 because I was told those were the best. Earlier this year, I did a playthrough of 6 and it holds up surprisingly well in conjunction with those two. I just wish I wasn't so busy aka lazy and force myself to bring my Wiz 6 party into another playthrough of 7 and 8, but honestly that seems pretty daunting right now.

    I really thought Fallout would've been in the top 3.

    Lots of ideas from Nietzsche in the game, including the critique of the notion that "the world is broken," a doctrine that Friedrich insisted was endemic to the botched and the bungled. Projection.

    Sometimes I think the inspiration for the internet itself flows from the currents of thought that were created in Mander's amazing book.

    It's just a little odd to see this:

    knowing your long antipathy towards and with some of the big-wigs at Sir-Tech.

    Guessing he likes the games, but not necessarily the people who made them...

    First mistake was believing that the people at Sir-Tech had much if anything to do with the creation of both 6 & 7.

    Taking the profits does not make you even a game producer.

    The now bankrupt entity once known as Sir-Tech has said a lot of stuff.

    Cleve probably admires Bradley, as he should.
