Today I was listening to Some halo music on Spotify and decided to search for the very first Macworld Halo Trailer.
I cam from a time back when gaming was so different. Gaming news was only released through magazines like EGM and CGW. It was a time of the console wars now its more like streaming wars.
When I look back I realise the graphics and game animations were more crude by today’s standard but what makes it stand out?
I guess the music the atmosphere the setting?
Somehow the trailer created an emotion in me a sense of mystery and wonder.
I also wondered why Halo became a success culturally?
Maybe it was because Xbox was launching a console against SONY and it helped Bungie get a lot of free marketing.
Maybe it was Network theory That in the abscence of a unified Performance Measuremnt such as Art, it will be the network that decides success.
You can read about it here:
Whatever it was Halo is cemented as one of the most played Sci-Fi shooter on a console with a recognizable Hero Character Master Chief.
