It has been funny to watch the game that I play change over the years. It has also been funny to watch games change themselves over the years. I have no doubt that we could all go on and on about this or that game that we all played and immensely enjoyed in the 80's, 90's and so on.
As most probably experience, with age I have drawn very, very far away from what is popular with kids these days. All the blood, guts, sex and swearing does nothing for me - especially with my little kids around the house and always wanting to see what daddy is playing. I have no doubt that still draws some gamers here to the modern games, but it doesnt for me. Which is why games like WitP or CM have dominated what I have played over the last five years.
But . . .
I have a soft spot for Halo. I dont know why my enjoyment of that game has lasted so long. But I really enjoy playing Halo. Anyone who has ever played Halo knows that it is most enjoyed with others. And therein lies the problem.
For anyone who has ever played on XBOX Live, I do not need to provide details on what types of *cough* kids *cough* play on there. I am assured from veterans that there are more obsenities per square word out of the mouths of those kids than there is on a real battlefield. This leaves me with very, very few people to play Halo with over XBOX live as I have a hard time finding people who are a little more . . . mature, grown up, not living in their moms basement, have a job, prefer to be outside, know how to work with their hands, know how to communicate with people face to face and so on.
So to get to the point, does anyone here play over XBOX Live? Specifically, Halo or ODST? ODST's new firefight mode is just screaming to be played with four people over live.
Its just a nice way to pass time while waiting on my next WitP PBEM turn
Thanks in advance
PS - no offense if you live in your moms basement
