A bunch of friends were over playing goldeneye on the N64, and the discussion turned to this new console they came out with called XBOX. After the game we went to the store to check out the price. I just happened to have enough money on me to buy it. Got back to my place and opened it up, and it came with a game I had never herd of, Halo Combat Evolved. While I was setting it up, my friend was reading the box, and said hey this has split screen up to four players, to bad I had only purchase one extra controller. We played the rest of the night. The next Friday coming home from work, I stopped by the store and purchased another two controllers. When I got home, I found five friends a couple of cases of beer and six pizzas waiting for me. Thirty hours later, with sore stomachs and faces, from the laughter we called it quits. I have not stopped playing halo since.
