Sometimes it's easy to take for granted just how much Bungie accomplished.
In a fitting Christmas episode, but also as a tribute to Bungie's work, YouTuber NakeyJakey went back over the origins of Halo and the game's impact on first-person shooters, consoles and the perception of both after Halo's release.
There's also a good chat about the amount of external factors on Halo, but also a breakdown of how some of the smaller changes - like acceleration on turning, soft lock, friction - made shooters more comfortable on a console setup.
It's also just fun to see a YouTuber unabashedly show off their notes during recording (and just how many notes they made). But it's also good, given its the holiday season, to remember just how much work goes into the games we really loved.
Halo really did change everything.
