I cannot describe how excited I am to get my MCC copy in the mail in the coming weeks. There are a few video games that really paved the way for my fate as a lifelong gamer (born in 90 so while my older brother had NES, SNES, SEGA, I have very few memories of really enjoying them until after my PS1 days). DOOM, Hexen, and Mortal Kombat were of my very first gaming memories on PC. Metal Gear Solid and Crash Bandicoot are the games that stand out to me from my PS1 days. But a 4th of July trip down to Virginia where I played Halo CE on my cousin's brand new Xbox is what really made my decision to go with the Xbox instead of the PS2.. and from there I have never looked back.
Admittedly, I played Halo CE, Halo 2, and Halo 3 religiously (Campaign and LAN mostly) but took a many year hiatus until Halo 5 came out. So, as you can infer, there is a lot I missed. I can't wait to replay the campaigns from Ce-3, but I am really excited to play Halo 4's campaign, which I have heard many great things about. I'm not exactly sure why I waited so long to get MCC, but right now i'm peeing my pants in anticipation.
