With my reviews on the way i thought i should show anyone interested as to where i stand. I believe a good way to do that would be to show you my own personal top five games/series’.
3) Halo series
I was brought into the halo verse by some friends while i was still a PS2 player. I was responsible for occupying the player four spot in 2v2 matches on Halo 2, i was unfamiliar with the game and uncomfortable with a new controller that was essentially alien to me. Add that to the unfortunate case of “accidentally” reversed y-axis, and you can understand why my opinion of the game wasn’t that positive.
however after a string of good behavior, good grades, or something. I was bought a shiny new Xbox, and Halo 3 was part of the bundle. i immediately fell in love with the damn thing. Everything about it was better than I’d ever experienced before. Its graphics were gorgeous, its gameplay was intuitive and its story compelling.
At 14 years old, i cast away my PS2 and went through a gaming version of the Spartan-II program right there on my sofa. A few months after and i then experienced the magic of Xbox live. Co-op and custom games set me along a path to shoot better and drive faster than ever before.
I want to stress that i wasn’t blinded by it being my first online game on the Xbox, its online was fast paced, and as structured as it was varied. And after now playing all the halo games i can’t understand why i didn’t get into them sooner. With the ODST game in particular being one of the most memorable segments in my gaming life.
