CraveOnline: "The greatest regret I carry with me in my gaming life is having missed every Halo game at release. The Xbox One is my first Xbox console, and because of that Halo has always been foreign to me. I would get around to play Halo: Combat Evolved on PC, and play through Halo 3 and Halo: Reach on a borrowed console, but I would never take the steps necessary to see first-hand why the franchise is held in such high regard.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been regarded as the ultimate package for Halo fans since its announcement, but it’s much more than that. In my case, it’s a way to catch up the franchise, and see why it’s earned millions of fans. Playing through each game and experiencing multiplayer for my first time, I’ve learned that this series’ reputation is no mistake. These are games unlike any other, and in Halo: MCC they combine their powers into one."
