Halo

Halo: Combat Evolved!

The killer app for the original Xbox (in its gigantic splendor). Microsoft was so desperate to have it that they bought Bungie outright.

Seriously.

Bungie originally announced Halo at MacWorld in 1999 (for both PC and Mac), and then, in 2000, Microsoft bought them.

Even if you can’t stand first-person shooters, you’ve got to hand it to Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori; the main theme is excellent.

  1. I still kind of think the first one was the best… and I definitely miss the zoomable pistol. But I have not played the most recent two, so my experience is limited.

    • The zoomable pistol was great. I didn’t finish the second and haven’t played any of the others, but the first one was definitely good.

      Anything that results in Red vs. Blue can’t be that bad!
