And now, a brief conversation snippet from my office this morning in which I explain a weekend adventure from Tomb Raider: Anniversary. We join the scene as I explain to one of my game-playing co-workers how I guided heroine Lara Croft through ancient Greek ruins and into a large amphitheater-type environment guarded by fearsome beasts.
MattG: "... and so once I made it into this coliseum place, two large angry gorillas come at me, so I start shooting and then there were two panthers coming at me, so I shot at them too."
Game-playing co-worker: "What about the bats?"
MattG: "I'd already taken care of them."
Confused co-worker, approaching the conversation: "What game is this?"
MattG (without missing a beat and with a deadpan expression): "No game. This was my weekend."
Confused co-worker: *stunned silence*
Game-playing co-worker: "Nice!" *high-five*
What can I say? I have my moments.
