    Respect to the guy for being able to last with Halo for the duration of this speedrun. I've tried playing every Halo up to 4. Didn't play any of them for longer than about 2hrs. One of the most boring and generic shooters I've ever played with terrible vehicle controls (Banshee was a nightmare; why you had to constantly accelerate with it?! ) They seemed to me like an MMOFPS with a forced story mode.
