Did I say it wasn't CGI in the end? I deliberately left out all the details about how they scanned and animated because I thought it was common knowledge around here. Key word in my original post: "first". Now they rely 100% on the 3d modeling software to do the work for them, and it definitely loses something in the translation. The previous posts in this thread all seem to imply the old talking heads started out as a computer render. In the late 90's when Fallout 1 and 2 were made 3d modeling software was still fairly new and extremely limited. With today's hardware and how far along 3d studio max has come you can do anything. However, that allows them to cut corners in development. In short, Marcus looks like a lifeless Hulk. But, whatever. That's the least of our problems. New Vegas will likely be crap anyway. Either through bugs or retarded design or plain old unfinished.
