Finished Halo this weekend. I played a lot more than I anticipated I would. I was totally gripped. For a FPS newbie Halo was a perfect starting point for me. Engaging story, corny enough to not be totally serious but at the same time not silly.
I have some complaints, but it’s a very solid game that still feels modern “enough” to still work. The length was perfect, beat it in like 10 hours. Very solid weekend game!
I have a “ritual” that after finishing a game, I try to watch a speedrun of it. It’s a great way for me to combine my interests, casual gaming and speedrunning. Knowing the game gives the speedrun more depth. Especially the struggle in the Library for me, and the speedrun just skips a lot of it on Legendary whereas I played on Normal. Pretty crazy stuff.
