A combination of a better graphics card (hence a smoother gaming experience) and a drastically reduced expectation of a good time. lol I was irritated witless the first time I played this. I didn't like Sam's character, and the movement was terribly sluggish (graphics card issue).

I still found the handdrawn cut scenes a bit slapdash and lazy, but overall gameplay much more enjoyable, particularly the ability to check your chapter progress.

I must be mellowing with age. Ugh. sick

Yes, I meant, is it possible to speculate on different ways these questions could be answered.

I was not too interested in Jane Jensen's answer, but just different ways that people can interpret the game (I interpreted GM from a Bibical point of view).

What do you think, Becky?

Rushes -- rah for new computers! (I know the pompoms are your FAVORITE graemlin.) NOT!

Mellowing can mean living longer, right? grin (Longevity goes along with laid-backness -- it's a scientific fact. Sort of.)

I'd like to play this one a second time too, now that I know all.

Cruise -- well, you can interpret anything in life any number of ways until you bump up against reality.

For a game, what's important is if you enjoyed it, so I suppose even if everyone else thinks a certain interpretation is wrong, that may not matter at all to you.

Becky, your recall of minutiae impresses me no end. Pink pompoms are indeed evil. zombie
