View Full Version : My addiction to Halo

Well back about 3 months ago, my friends and I heard of this Halo Tournament. So we decided we should join, it was the game type we like to play and we really loved Halo so we decided to give it a try. We all registered for the Winter Season and threw in $20 each for the $80 entree fee. So as most people do to win, we needed to practice. So for 3 months straight nearly everyday we played 5-8 hours of Halo, practicing and practicing the same game on GameSpy of people all over the net. It was CTF, Gulch, Hogs Only. Near the time of the tournament we had become some of the masters online, and every weekend we would order Dominoes and just play Halo.

Yes you might consider us nerds, but the game is just that fun. So the day came and we woke up and got ready to play. We ended up playing 3 other teams and kicked there ass ... sadly though, the next regionals was held in Indiana, and none of our parents (we are all 14 BTW) wanted to pay for tickets to play video games. So out dreams were shattered and I quit Halo and haven't played since.

LOL, just thought I would post a topic about it. :)

Ahh, I remember back in the old days when I was like that :D Though I enjoy Halo immensely to this day, I will never play as much as I did during my addiction phase last february. By the way, welcome to the site Rock!
