If you’re a gamer, you know Halo. Whether you love it or hate it, Halo is an undeniable phenomenon, with a massive fan base and fingers in a tremendous number of consumer pies, from gaming to literature to comic books to t-shirts to . . . well, I draw a blank at what industries the franchise doesn’t touch.
Well, no Halo Cookbook. 343, get on that.
Culinary concerns aside, Halo is a monster, and one that I have loved from the beginning. An epic space opera with phenomenal voice-acting, a sweeping storyline, menacing villains on a religious crusade to essentially end all life in the galaxy, and space-zombies. Its a nerd’s dream, and one realized by a development team who has unparalleled production values. Some studios develop games; Bungie defines gaming.
