Why Master Chief can be Considered a Pop Icon

The Halo series has unquestionably been one of the most influential video games of all time. With the release of Halo 4 just around the corner we thought it would be a fun idea to shed a little light on all the different forms of entertainment that Master Chief has made a difference in. He is a renowned hero that any gamer can learn to love, he is one of gaming’s most recognizable characters and has even been named the savior of Xbox. All these things and more make up the idol that he is but video games are just a minute group of population reached while this hero has gone afar the gaming industry. The Halo series has gone beyond the influences of home consoles and Chief made his way to a number of different entertainment forms. From movies, books, TV shows, comics and not to mention the multiple references in other video games this game has proven itself to be one of the prime example to show off gaming in other entertainment forms. Master Chief is more than just a video game character, he is an icon. (Culture, Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Master Chief sits on the throne of most iconic video game character ever - followed by Mario,Link and Cloud.

When Master Chief dies in the Halo universe, I hope Obama declares it a national holiday in the USA and constructs a 50 ft statue of the chief in Washington.
