Ten years ago,what would become one of the most influential games in console history was released on the original Xbox. It undeniably changed the way the first-person shooter genre was perceived outside of PC games. A controller was finally a viable substitution to keyboard and mouse, with many players even preferring it. This new layout of control was supported by engrossing story and multiplayer modes that consumed countless hours of many lives. Halo: Combat Evolved was the game that did it all, and 10 years later, the world is paying its respects with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.
