See, although you are right and I won't argue that, I never bought that line personally. Being a PC and N64 gamer at the time, I found there to be no significant advantage to playing Halo over Perfect Dark. PD did almost all the same stuff as Halo, while also allowing bots. Yet people grabbed onto it like it was the second coming of Doom, and now I feel that games suck for it. The soundtrack WAS nice though. There was something really attractive about it to me even though I didn't find the game to be great.

The only thing that Halo had for it was the DVD based game that allowed for much higher fidelity music than the Midi of the SNES or the CD tracks that were squeezed onto the TA disks.
I used to fanboy consoles in my sig. Now I'm not so sure they are worth my love. Steam has done more for me than all 3 consoles combined this gen.
