Hail to the Master Chief:
This year, Halo 3 made history. The game brought in $170 million in sales in 24 hours, outpacing big Hollywood movie releases like "Spider-Man 3". After just one week on the shelves, the latest Halo game had earned over $300 million, and had racked up 40 million hours of online gameplay on Xbox Live.
But underneath those numbers rests the game itself, a solid single-player campaign buttressed by some of the best multiplayer action available on any console platform. In honor of Halo 3's nomination for GameSpy Game of the Year, GameSpy briefly spoke with Writing Lead Frank O'Connor about Halo's legacy, the community's reaction, and more.
