Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Would you have been an Xbox fan if it had not been for Halo?

Touch the systems?

Avoid it like the ouya
Would not know it existed
Japan would have touched it more
Would have taken longer to pick up steam.

Still love it!

I was just thinking. After looking at that Iceland Posters thread a second time. Nintendo is natural. Ofcourse we would still be Nintendo gamers without mario. There is so much more. But what about Xbox and Halo?

To me that is a much more serious game that would be missing. Without Halo, what would be the point? Or do you think the awesomeness of the 360 would have changed your mind?

I don't think so, Halo was the reason I got the original XBOX, I remember me and my cousins playing it for hours and hours.  Halo 3 was the reason I got a 360.



Probably not, Halo is the main reason I got the original Xbox. Well that and my disappointment in the Game Cube. Gears was the reason I got a 360 when I did so maybe that would have been when I jumped in anyway if there wasn't Halo.

I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

I first played Halo on PC(still play online) and it became one of the reasons I got a 360(the other being JRPGs). I would probably not care too much about the Xbox brand without it.

I do not think this needs to go any further. Halo was the game that saved Microsoft's adventure into console gaming.

It didn't really even need to start, I though everyone knew what Halo means to MS.

Probably not. I bought the original Xbox after playing Halo at a friends house. I bought my Xbox 360s, to play Halo 3 and Reach. However, Halo 4 was dissappointing and so I dont really trust 343 anymore. I dont see myself buying an Xbox One anytime soon for that reason.

No. I figured that a system could be successful without just one game or franchise. Plus, now it kind of seems like CoD has taken over Halo's once prized spot. Too bad it is multi-plate.



Yeah well COD has throw a turd in just about everyone else's punch bowl. This too I thought was common knowledge.

You know, I think Halo and Halo 2 are literally the only two games I played on the original xbox.
