E for Effort: The Story of Halo


So now Halo: Reach is on the horizon. Likely as good a place as any to see the franchise wrapped up, but understandable if it continues. If you didn�t already figure it out I was blown away by the book and really want to know if it can FINALLY bring together a good narrative, but once again I have my doubts.

I love the Halo universe with its absolutely rich history and amazing tales of heroism. Between all the novels, literature, the Halo Legends short stories collection movie, the comics, the music and heck even the commercials it seems like this great sci-fi atmosphere but for me it�s just the most noble of failures that the games which inspired all this devotion and hard work just cannot seem to get a compelling narrative together for a player to enjoy.

Can't quite say exactly what got me into gaming in the first place really. Back in the day I was rockin' original nintendo with games like the ninja turtles and sky shark it was alwsys me trying to get that much further and see if i could beat it. Most of you, fondly or otherwise, remember the dark days before sony introduced the massively expensive memory card (honestly $40 for an 8mb card... while gig SD's were only 30...wtf)

But from there it had to be Metal Gear Solid that MADE gaming for me. I mean a game that was unconventional and had REAL characters that you cared about ( I got blisters on me fingers from rapidly pressing O to save meryl from ocelot). But then there are also the staple franchises like Final Fantasy. X is my current favourite, IX is the sentimental favourite... and ok ok I get that I am BLATANTLY COMMITTING HERESY for not putting FFVII there...BUT... when VII was released I wasnt really there for it... I had never played FF before and only just learning about the ways of the bandicoot and FFIX was the first FF that I played so steady on, and FF tactics... well if you played this game then you know. And then all the titles of Naughty dog - crash, jak, and most recently nathan.
