When did you first meet Walter Day and where was it at?
The 2008 Video Game Summit in Lombard, IL. I was on staff and invited Walter to come to the event. He brought along Tim McVey as a surprise (his first public appearance in decades and as a gaming celebrity). I also invited Todd Rogers (his first return to his hometown Chicago after 15-year absence). Also Trickman Terry and Ken Sushi-X from Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine were at the event. The event was amazing!
