I have a theory that all other games in the history of the world are really based on Zak. The monster in the tunnels was the inspiration for Doom, Quake, etc. Annie in the tunnels is Tomb Raider. The Caponians and Mars and trying to alter people's minds - that's Half Life. Moving cushions in Zak's house (and meeting his female friends) - that's The Sims. Moving lines in a puzzle to make a door open - that's Myst. Managing your credit card - that inspired a host of management games. It's official. Zak invented everything. :) :)
