I know this is going to sound stupid but I'm going to throw it out there anyways. If you don't know, I just made the switch from PS2 to Xbox back in July. I have never even played Halo until this past weekend when I finally decided to buy it. /AGE/DesktopModules/YetAnotherForumDotNet/images/emoticons/021.gifEven though this game is almost 3 years old, I think it is awesome and can't wait for the Halo 2. I guess I should go ahead and get that reserved. I'm not really sure what the point of me telling all of you that was but I wanted to get that off my chest. /AGE/DesktopModules/YetAnotherForumDotNet/images/emoticons/091.gif
And here come the comments..........

DOn't feel too bad bud...I've owned Halo for about a year, and I'm just trying to finish it now! :smt003

Hey, at least you've finally seen the light and have been able to enjoy all the goodness that is Halo! I still play through it occasionally. Nothing like taking off Flood heads with the shotgun! Enjoy!

:smt028 2 years ago I bashed the hell out of the Xbox for not having any games worth playing, but after a brief one week stint with the Gamecube I just said what the hell got Xbox with Halo & Dead to Rights. I haven't looked back sense. It takes alot to move on especially when all you really know is Sony or Nintendo. So I'm not going to laugh at you because I used to be you. Now just one last man, get rid of the PS2 you'll feel better.

Listen ... Xbox is a much better, stronger system. You made the right choice.

Yea, I just recently got an XBox also, Martino. I also didn't play Halo until about 6 months ago on the PC.
Can't believe what I was missing. Bring on Halo 2!
*cough* That is, IF I can get used to FPS's on Xbox instead of keyboard / mouse combo on PC! *cough* :smt009

Damn UC! At least you did finally see the light! :smt002 Hey look at it
this way. When I played Halo and said I couldn't wait until the
next one I had about 3 years to wait. At least you only have about 3

Dude, I had never played it until I got the Halo edition xbox a few
months ago. I had written halo off as just another FPS, just
prettier. Oh how wrong I was....
10-19-2004, 07:05 PM
It's still the best selling game on Xbox 3 years later, and it was a launch title. It MUST be good!
Halo was the reason I bought an Xbox. About a year after Xbox came out, I played it (Halo)for about 10 minutes at CompUSA and was hooked immediately.
10-19-2004, 07:13 PM
only reason I would laugh......is because you LIKE IT. my god what is with this game, i'm anti halo i must admit but damn as far as saying your gonna get halo2.....oh no halo is like a disease just spreading!

I had written off video games for a long while. I had played the PS1 a little but quit and wasn't real interested in video games at all. Then some friends of mine invited me over to play Halo. So I went. Big mistake. Soon, I was playing with them all the time. I became known as the best person in the group at Halo that didn't actually own an Xbox (I actually owned a controller before I owned an Xbox!). Eventually, I gave in and bought my own box and now video gaming is back as a big hobby of mine. So I have Halo to thank........or blame........something.

i have an xbox-less buddy(ross)who has been playing HALO with me at my house for over a year now--at one point he was so addicted he actually caught himself almost pulling over in his car to pick up the blue reflector that he thought was a plasma grenade laying on the ground--and he's not even retarded!
lucky for him, he has a b-day coming and i, along with my wife, racer-rob, ross' girlfriend, and a couple of other friends are pitching in to get a 'box, live kit, rs3:ba and, of course, a pre-order for HALO2
that sucker can buy his own copy of HALO

ahhhhh... i remember the first days experiencing halo like it was yesterday. went to my boy's house. played it in coop mode for a few hours. later that week you know i owned a xbox and halo... couldn't resist!
i don't even know why it is as addicting as it is either. i agree with all the haters out there that say that the game isn't anything groundbreaking... there's just something about it......

Halo was a great game. I was really surprised by the plot twists. It must've taken me 20 reloads to get through the point where you teleport into the Covenant ship. And I was jumping up & down for joy when I finally finished the last level.
I can't wait to see the new single player in Halo 2 & then also school y'all in XBL! [ha, who am I kidding, I am nothun' but cannon fodder online]

It's kinda funny how Halo is this game that is virtually demanding to be played by anyone who owns an Xbox. Aside from the Sims on the PC, I can't think of another game that's held it's price point for three years. That's just nuts.
10-20-2004, 09:56 AM
I'm also one of those folks that don't think much of the single player. It had a lot of potential, but the horrible level design (with a few exceptions) killed it. I beat the campaign but it is mediocre at best. But I am looking forward to the campaign in Halo 2 as I think Bungie has learned from their mistakes (and I think some of those mistakes were forced by them being rushed, whereas, in Halo 2, there was no rush).
Multiplayer, on the other hand, is a singular experience of pure unadulterated joy for me that has yet to be duplicated in any other multiplayer game.
10-20-2004, 03:58 PM
OK, don't everyone laugh all at once, but I have had a box for 2 years and have never played halo. (Please laugh now).
I did reserver Halo2, but I will definitely be a newbie when it comes out. It looks like a great game, but I'm not a huge FPS player, so it just didn't show me enough to pick it up. I have thought about it a few times, but I'm afraid that it will be like Unreal. I liked GR more, since I feel that good sniping is an art and not a position. Maybe it's just me, but you can all school me when it comes out.
You may stop laughing now.
