Let’s Play Halo: Combat Evolved

VZ7inHD is another long-play champion on Youtube. In the video above and the full playlist here, he takes us through Microsoft/Bungie’s Halo: Combat Evolved. Halo is a science fiction video game that follows the Master Chief on a ringworld as he tries to prevent the spread of a scourge-like alien species.

I never owned a Xbox, but I played through Halo on my buddy Mike F’s Xbox when I was readmitted to Georgia Tech in the early 2000s. I wonder how the Xbox would have done had Microsoft not captured Bungie in its net before Halo (or what it was to become) was released on Mac OS. I enjoyed Bungie’s earlier Mac Marathon game series (something for a future post!).

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
