My experience playing Halo: Combat Evolved (an oldie but a goodie)

My husband has Halo 2 and 3 on the XBox 360. After he bought them (on release day, mind you), he played them through to the end, and then they went back to the bookcase, where they remain to this day. In my mind’s eye, if you pay 60 bucks for a game, shouldn’t it get played more than once? I left the matter alone then since other things came up (work, school, life, you name it).

However, recently we got a video on Netflix called HALO Legends. It wasn’t all that great overall (an Arbiter who knows the way of the samurai?), but it did give me a jonesing to play HALO.

My backstory with gaming is really simple. I am not good with first person shooters. They tend to be pretty violent, and kinda make me dizzy sometimes. I’m more old school, Mario, Tetris, card games. But, I do have Rock Band 2 and got pretty decent at it with guitar and bass. RB 3 will be part of my collection when it comes out šŸ™‚

As an amateur, I made a rookie mistake. I took out HALO 3 from its box, put it in, and wondered why in the hell I couldn’t get the controls right. Erik snickered a bit, and suggested I try the first game in the series (HALO: Combat Evolved). It took some doing, but he was able to borrow a copy from his buddy Joseph (thanks again, man :).

So the other day I fired it up, checked out the tutorial, and after an hour and change, got through the first ship. I am now on the ground, hopefully driving this deal when I next play:

Imagine me here, but as the Master Chief

We’ll see how my foray into HALO goes. I’d like to finish the game before school starts at the end of August. Hopefully it’ll happen.
