    Every now and then the old video game geek comes out in me, usually when they release the latest chapter of Halo for the Xbox. This new Halo is so darn good. It's a prequel to the original Halo. I finished it in 2 days on normal difficulty and now have a sad empty feeling in me. What an awesome game, best ever!!!

    Quote:Yeah, it's not a young child's game. While the enemies are all aliens there is a lot of blood and violence.

    I just finished campaign tonight, It took me about 12 hours on normal difficulty.

    Best Halo game ever and IMO the best game of 2010!

    If anyone wants to add me as a friend my Xbox live username is njchickendude

    Quote:I play for an hour and then step away from the Xbox. If not it starts taking me over. I'm not sure how many hours of play it took but it was probably around 12 too.

    I wish they had more maps and missions. I'd like at least 40 hours of campaign play.

    The online multiplayer is fun but it's the interactive campaigns that make me a big fan. Plus so many of the online players are so good that to even compete it's all KILL KILL KILL!!!

    I'll look for your username when I'm online. Do you use a headset? I've gotta get one.

    Quote:CD, that surprises me a little. Youth violence is a much more complicated social problem than kids playing video games. Many of the countries that don't have video games have deeper levels of violence than we do.

    In comparison to many other games Halo is mild.

    IMO a much greater problem is the amount of time people, both young and old, play video games. They are addicting and like any addiction take away from the quality of one's life, not to mention add to the obesity problems we have.

    My Xbox will sit idle for months until a new game comes out, will get used for a week or two, and then go back to collecting dust or being used for Netflix.
