A buddy was given the Dual CD case for Christmas- or maybe just as a gift for gift's sake? -and one day when I came over to his place to hang, he was no longer playing Civilization, but this new game, and he was in the middle of a pitched fight with half a dozen guys. I had no idea what was going on, but there were some dudes in green armor and one big dude in bright, shining, metal armor, and he was fighting them all. He was complaining that it was himself and his AI friend, but the friend was making the battle a nightmare, because he kept shooting HIM instead of the enemies. It was very intriguing. I can't even recall how much I saw of him playing it, but he lent me the discs to install them on my own PC (since I wouldn't need to keep them if I chose the "HUMONGOUS" option), and while I stumbled a few times trying to understand the character creation, once I got started, I was hooked and couldn't stop. I ended up beating FO2 when my same friend hadn't even gotten past the Temple of Trials, and no amount of persuasion could convince him to pick the game back up again. Now I'm running into the same problem with another friend who stubbornly refuses to dedicate a little time to the game... but that's another story for a different topic.
