regarding your legendary question...
I'll just answer by using the description of that video...
What I meant by "PC legacy" was that the gameplay on PC surpassed the one on consoles. PC players all over the world jumped on the Halo bandwagon... that time PC players made Halo even more popular than it already was. When Halo was popular only in the console players world... PC players made it huge in the ww gaming community. Pity that the developers resumed to just a thank you and a patch and didn't invest in PC versions anymore. Then we basically didn't cared anymore for this game. It was like a slap in the face.
I understand. Your POV is from PC version only
, that's okay. But let me add something to my POV, just to freshen up my perspective - I only recently started to play Halo. I wasn't there when they released it on the XBOX system, or when Halo 2 roared & rampaged during late XBOX era. Nope, wasn't there when Halo 3 became ''the second coming''. And with Halo: Reach? Yup, pretty much did not have XBOX360 to play with.
So, you see, I'm a complete rookie in regards of when
I started to play Halo. Wouldn't exactly call it ''bandwagon'' either because I was acting on my own, just wanted to play something that could glue me to screen and let me forget about minutes and hours. Before that, I was a hardcore PC gamer: played it all, FPS, RPG, point and click adventures, RTS, you name it (I still have Sam & Max, Diablo II and Half-Life 2 on my hard drive). Then I decided to ''test drive'' Halo/Halo 2 on my PC... And damn, was I in love or what. After literally three years of deciding to put things down in my gamer section of life (occasionally I did play Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2 and Bayonetta, stuff like that, unmissable), Halo struck me as genuenly interesting, with greater-than-life story arc (I'm a SciFi sucka) and with characters like Cortana and Masterchief. ''I became... Addicted.''
So yeah, it's individual. If I didn't have XBOX I would probably be pissed with their sudden switch to XBOX only policy, but I said what the hell, sold my PS3, bought XBOX360 with only 4GBs and here I am now, placing HALO 3 in my TOP 10 of all times, investment in full circle.
