My First Visit to D.C. Since Playing Fallout 3 (2009)

Pretty trippy!  The poor weather of last weekend severely diminished the usual crowds, and the unusual emptiness of the National Mall added to the weird effect of my many inappropriately overlaid spatial memories.  I found myself somewhat more alert than usual heading through Metro stations.  This is excellent; I demand more first-person perspective games set in surreal versions of real-world locations.  No other medium can infect your sense of place like games.
