Get the most enjoyment from Halo 3 by following these tips...
Tell your girlfriend or wife that she it staying at her mums for 3 days.
That's right, don't eat, because if you do, you'll just end up BARFFING after you see what junk it's going to be.....AHAHHAHHAHA
But on the other hand if you do eat, and feel the need to puke, do it over your 360, as it may cool it down and avoid it from BLOWING up in your face......AAAHAHhAhAHAHA

Add 11: Ignore the fanboys on this site.
12: Enjoy a good game.
you forgot to take your sanity meds again
but what halo did do was add a lot to the genre.
-For starters the wepaons system. Halo's weapon system where holding 2 of any weapon was used in games like FEAR and gears of war, where an extra weapon was substituded in. This was rare to see in games before hand, most used a menu system or limited you with 1 primary, 1 secondary.
-regenerating health. Real no explination here as regenerating health is probably noticable in most games now where it once never existed. From splinter-cell to gears.
-exspansive outdoor maps where as most other fps's and current ones are all linear and small corridors.
-matchmaking, the system defined what it should be like to join a game online, it's quick easy and has led the way for most current online console games. Including COD.
-weapon balance - ever notice how the halo sniper isn't able to kill exploding flood? right, and that plasma weapons are better used on the covenant, while human weapons make better use of the flood.
-vehicles, though not the first, it's one of the best.
-prooved that the analog controls could infact work for a fps and a console can be used for fps games.
all set to an epic storyline (yes it is epic and maybe you should play through the full game to really understand it, the story is far better than that of the mgs franchise or other alien shooters with the exception of hl), with very high production values, great music and great visuals. Halo may not be the most influential or innovative but what it did was find the near perfect balance, making it one of the greatest FPS's of all time.
Ah the sh1ts excuse, classic and still works like a charm. :)
the halo hate on this site is always amusing. Thanks guys.
11 - pray to not get a rrod
( yeah yeah i know i have a xbox 360 and soon a halo 3 copy ... )

I took 2 days off work! who-ah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12. Get ahead in all programming classes by at least 2 weeks.
Most of their recommendations are pretty obvious: Live membership, a little extra H1 and H2, "sick days," etc.
A couple of suggestions in addition:
Polish up your smack talk: In addition to real players, one will see lots of obnoxious 12-year-olds trying to play. Be sure to have plenty of sharp, crushing retorts for those little snotbags.
Stock up on the "nutritional" necessities: Mountain Dew/Red Bull/Pizza/Chips/whatever is needed for those all-day/all-night/all-day again gaming sessions.
Apologize to the girlfriend/wife/significant others well in advance of your becoming a virtual shut-in for, oh, a week or so.
Discover what current viruses and ailments are making the rounds at work/school, etc. Ready-made excuses. Be sure to create a convincing cough/sneeze.
Learn how to sleep during load-times.
