Yeah, I'm here.Try to handle yourself.

About 4-5. One of the first games we got when we got the Xbox in early 2002.

I was 12 and I remember hating the game at first and going back to perfect Dark.

Gave it another chance on a boring day in the summer a few days before I turned 13 and oh my god best game ever. Not sure what changed but I do remember not liking the game at all the first time I played it.

"A good player wins a 1v1, a great player avoids one." - T00lB0X

I was around eleven years old when my brother's friend came over one day,(my brother was only eight) and he had a bag of games, there was Star Wars Battlefront II, some other Star Wars game, and Halo 2. Halo 3 was already out by the time that this happened, but I didn't own an Xbox 360.

Halo 2 was by far my favorite, so we borrowed it for about four months until he took the game back, from the time that he took the game back, to the time I bought my Xbox 360, all I did was raise money for a new Xbox 360 to play Halo 3, but that wasn't the first Halo game I bought.

The first Halo game I bought was Halo Reach, back when I first got Xbox Live. But another one of my friends, who had an Xbox 360 for five years and never got Xbox Live,(until now) brought over Halo 3 before that, and I kept bugging him, asking him what matchmaking was.

He said that it was where you could play with other players over Xbox Live, and I kept trying to get on it. He was pretty annoyed, but he should have told me that you needed an Xbox Live Gold membership to play on Xbox Live. Halo 2 is still my favorite Xbox game, and I was sad when I found out that I would never be able to play it Live because Microsoft shut down Live for the original Xbox.

Does flaming people on forums count as an esport?

8 I believe. Second grade. First match was an offline Slayer match against my stepbrother on Coagulation. I fell in love with that tank, and I fell in love with Halo.

#1 Legendary ODST Firefight Highscore


7 i think. My dad came home with an Xbox, which came with Halo. At first I was only allowed to watch him play, (being an M game) but then he insisted he needed help a few missions in. That' been the pattern of our play for every consecutive Halo: Co-op legendary, right off the bat.

Satan OScillate My Metallic SOnataS

I believe I was 20. I remember it was a couple months after 9/11. It was most definantly a welcome hiatus from all the worries and stress swirling all around the world. I recall my friends 20th b-day was on 11/17 but we pitched in and got him an X-box and Halo a couple of days before his b-day.

There are a few moments that really stuck out in my mind.

1.)Trying to get the hang of driving the Warthog I didnt get that it steered towards where you were looking.

2.)The Library level trying to figure out where the rockets were coming from... I still remember that one darn flood in the shadows with the rocks.

3.)The first time I got my hands on a tank *ownage*

4.)FINALLY killing those elites before they got into their banshees (I believe I held onto a sniper rifle for a long time to kill em) and then I just used the rockets to knock the banshees off the ledge.

5.)Realising the Mag OWNED

6.)Last but not least answering ads in the paper to attend lan parties. God bless those old Mad Cats lan hubs. (I still have the green cat-5 cables that came with them)

Why Bungie, why would you do this?! - Halo Community

Dunno, like 14? I just remember enjoying it with a friend. Since there we could only really play 1v1 , we made up some ways to play. Pistol vs Warthog was epic. One guy got front seat of a warthog, other guy got pistol. Made up a few obvious honor rules and had a blast.

This is a Reach account that I created the day they announced his name in a bnet weekly update. Any stats regarding ODST or Halo 3 are irrelevant. Also, Halo CE master race. Halo 1 > other halo games > other games.

10. I feel so old now...

Like 6 lol. I remember watching my dad play it on the pillar of autumn on the cutscene where MC meets with Captain Keyes on the bridge.

It was about a year after CE had come out, and I went over to a friend's house to spend the night. He told me about this cool new co-op game called Halo, so we decided to play it.

Keep in mind, I had never played an FPS before, and the scariest thing I had ever seen was the Pink Elephant scene in Dumbo.

So what does he do? He puts it on Legendary and we play through the final level.
Actually, let me rephrase that. He gave me a pistol and a shotgun and told me to sit in a corner and shoot anything that moves while HE went through the level.

I had nightmares from the Flood for a straight week, then couldn't wait to play it again next weekend.

Checking out my profile I see?

I think I was around 12 and I went to a friend's house and me and him played Halo 2 until 6 in the morning.

I was 10, at my cousin's 13th birthday party in August 2002. He got an Xbox and Halo CE as a gift and we played The Pillar of Autumn together.

Easter Egg Hunter. Apprentice Tricker/Glitcher (learning from Grumpy and Sliding Ghost).

Trying to get Waypoint to update Halo 3 stats in detail like here. Now no one can see that my Halo 3 Spartan no longer looks like my Reach Spartan.

Really want to be a Heroic member or have a title. :/

I was like 4 or 5 in 2003 I think. I played with my uncle and I always died, walked off cliffs, shot anything that moved, and only killed about 1 or 2 grunts every three levels. The first time I played Halo and new what was going on was in elementary school. I went o my friends house which is two houses from mine. We played local co-op on Halo 2 then rotated to Star Fox and back to Halo 2. Then Halo 3 came out and they switched to that. This is when I fell in love with it. We always played with rocket launchers and energy swords (I forget what map) or infection alpha zombies. My first Halo game I owned was Reach. I liked it, but not nearly as much as 2 or 3.
