I’m on the train and some guy sits down next to me. He sees the pin on my backpack and says, “I like your pin, what’s it for?” I explain that it’s from a game that’s played on college campuses called Humans vs. Zombies. He replies, “That’s really cool! I used to work in gaming.” It turns out that he worked on the 3D designing for Black Ops. It also turns out that he got to play Starcraft before it was released to everyone else. He works at a bank now.
We got off the train at the same stop, but we never traded names or contacts or anything. Instead, we derped off into the distance, probably never to see each other ever again.
