On a personal note, Halo 2 is quite important to me — particularly when it comes to multiplayer. I’m hard-pressed to think of a single game I spent more time with. It was an obsession. I watched the pro scene particularly, through its early stages through to its demise with Halo 4. So watching this great video, with some of the old top pros playing the new remastered Halo 2 maps? Man, it brings a tear to these old man eyes…
This Halo event took place at PAX Prime and the above video shows some of the best plays from the event.
In particular its great to watch Lockout, probably my favourite Halo map of all time. It might not have been the most balanced of the MLG maps, but it was certainly the most interesting in terms of route finding.
And the sword. The plasma sword. Oh man. Watching it in action. I can’t help it. My objectivity is ruined. It’s dissipated into the ether. I’m ruined for life. I cannot be objective about the Halo Master Chief Collection. I just need to play it. ASAP.
