    I thought they would give info on the history of the Halo Franchise - like how it was originally going to be on Mac, then on the Dreamcast, then on the PS2, then finally on the Xbox.

    Just think - if it were the same game, but on the Dreamcast - we may have had another Sega console.

    I remember when I first saw this game many years ago......It was in its beta form "Before the first Title" & was not playable as you could only watch the game play & imagine what it would be like to play it yourself. It was on a demo CD that came sealed inside of a PC game magazine "Cant remember which one". But I remember my feelings well.....it was a strange feeling as if I was reunited with something beautiful that I once lost. & I longed & hoped it would grow beyond just an idea. More & more video games are becoming so legendary that they will never be sold "If I can afford it" & will forever have a place both on my shelf & in my heart. Halo is one of those titles, to each his own indeed :-P

    I am a huge halo fan, but i was entirely disappointed with halo wars. As a fairly heavy RTS gamer as well, i saw nothing gameplay wise that even came close to starcraft, warcraft or even dawn of war. Loved the cutscenes and story however but am not at all suprised that it did not make this video. And like SiK mentioned, no bungie involved except for story...lol the only part i enjoyed.

    Good video!

    I kinda like how Halo started on the Microsoft Xbox. Halo 1, 2, 3, and 3: ODST are worth mentioning in the past. Sure, Halo Wars and Legends didn't mention it, but Bungie did deliver the goods sell millions and millions of copies. I can't wait for Halo Reach for the multiplayer beta next week and the full game this fall.

    So, that's know my roots.

    Halo Wars wasnt really a significant part of the Halo series in most people's minds anyway. I thought it was decent.

    something is screwed up with their posting system, still wont let me reply to a post -.-
