Great post Jow Blow, one of the few posts ever made on this site that were legible and purposely humorous. Bravo!
But that fellow down below who said PC gamer's saw Halo as "unoriginal" because we have been playing that type of game for over a decade is flat out wrong. I'm living proof of it.
I've been playing FPS's since the summer of 93 when I was first introduced to Wolfenstien by my cousin, and played my first of many online deathmatches with the Quake shareware in 96. I'm no stranger to Halo's type of gameplay, yet for some reason it did something for me that nothing, not even Quake3a or UT could do...it became more then a game, it became a weekend ritual amongst me and my friends.
what started as an excuse to get together for some geek-time on the weekend with three of my co-workers soon became a mandatory weekly social gathering. Now we have 14 people, me included, who have been playing Halo 1 on our xbox's (And my kickarse TV) for over two years now. Honestly, it hasn't grown old. Everyone looks forward to it, and nothing, except for halo 2, can replace it.
And for what it's worth, we are all PC Gamers, and yet don't possess the console-racism that you folks here do. Go figure.
