A TRUE fan of Bungie would know this.

There was a Halo before Halo: Combat Evolved. (Skip to last paragraph if you don't care about the rest.) A long time ago there once was me and a game. Well really it was mostly recently and it wasn't really ONLY me and a game...but you get the point. I told my friends that there must have been a Halo before Halo. They thought I was mad... My reasoning? Why would they add a subtitle to a game that was just introduced? Then it hit me...what if Halo was around before the Xbox? That is how I discovered this years ago. The ORIGINAL Halo on Mac and PC in a third person perspective. I know people probably already knew about this but I thought I'd share it with the people who do not. The game changed drastically from it's original days; from RTS, to Third-person Shooter to what it is today. Please leave all comments about how stupid I am out of this thread and realize I am 18 and only knew about Bungie from the original Combat Evolved. Did you know about this before I told you? Comment below. *I will be posting this in #Destiny and #OffTopic for sake of spreading the word of Bungie.

  • That chanting you hear nicely signals the beginning of Halo and, once MS buys it, the end of Mac gaming :-)

  • If you are a true Bungie fan you'd know that Halo is a rip off story from the book RingWorld.

    • They added the subtitle "Combat Evolved" because they didn't want people to think that it was a religious game. There was a video of a few Bungie employees and Marty playing and commentating through the whole trilogy. They explained the subtitle while playing Halo: CE.

      • Halo CE was Marathon 4 in a sense.

        I was well aware that there was quite a few concepts they had before committing to the fps genre.

      • Who has the right to dictate whether a person is a "true fan" or not? So long as you love something, that's all there is to it. "True fans" can kiss my delicate porcelain ass.

        • I always wondered what it would be like playing halo like that, but I don't think halo wars truly gets the feel that it would have.

            Wasn't Halo supposed to be a strategy game, then someone turned it into a FPS? Something like that.
