It’s hard to believe Halo has been out for two whole years now. It seems like only yesterday we were seeing previews and sneak peeks from MacWorld '99. Then, without warning, Bungie moved to the ranks of Microsoft and Halo was announced as an Xbox exclusive. Now, two years later, the game is still going strong, with close to 3.5 million copies in the homes of gamers across the globe. What started life as a pseudo real-time-strategy game for the Apple Mac has turned into the number-one-selling Xbox game of all time and a driving force behind much of the console’s overall success. With the newly arrived PC version selling like hotcakes and the Mac version due out in a matter of weeks, the Halo phenomenon hasn’t skipped a beat and shows no sign of slowing down.

In honor of this special occasion, I wanted to contact the people whose lives have been affected by Halo – our fan community, people from the gaming media and of course, members of the Bungie team. What follows is a collection of memories, stories, impressions and general thoughts from all three of these groups. There’s a lot to say about a game like Halo, so grab a seat. This might just be the longest Top Story in the history of Bungie.net.

And to think, not a single game even after 2 years can hold a candle to it. This is my opinion, of course. :D

Right there with you on that one, but unfortunately there are 5 games being released in the next year that will hopefully beat it. One of which will be the game's sequel..hehehe :p

I remeber when i got my xbox on launch date. I got it out of the box and put in halo. My volume was turned up high without me knowing it. As the holy music came on i was stunned, and played the game for 6 straight hours untill my hands hurt. I then called my friend over and we played co op all night long. It was great.
