Article Body A Brief History Of The Halo Franchise
As one of the most successful and most popular video game franchises of all time, the Halo series is a favorite of video game lovers everywhere. The title, created by Bungie Studios, follows a protagonist by the name of Master Chief. A cybernetically-enhanced human soldier, he leads the battle against mankind's foe, an alien race known as the Covenant.
In 1977 the Atari 2600 game console entered the market and I am sure that a lot of of you remember this fondly. I am also sure that individuals who are old enough remember the pong game which came out before the Atari 2600. This was a top of the line gaming system when it first came out and almost everyone has fond memories of the games that they played with this breaking technology.
There's no doubt about it: over the last 30 years, video games have become an integral part of our homes and have fundamentally changed the way our children play. Parents are concerned not only about how much time kids spend playing video games, but also what kind of content they're being exposed to. Here's a parents' guide.Many of today's parents are probably part of the first generation of video gamers; back in the 1970's, they played games like Asteroids, Pac-Man, Pong, and Q-Bert.
You all have probably heard all we had back in my day was pong. Well pong is long gone and the age of the video game has taken over. There are so many video game systems that you can buy to play video games on these days. Like you have the PS2, you have the Xbox, you have the Xbox 360 and now you have the PS3. Like what is going to come next after the PS3. I don't think anything can come next.
The new Xbox 360 system is the next thing in video games of today. You can still play regular Xbox games and watch DVDs on it but it is so much better then the regular Xbox for many reasons. I first bought the Xbox to play games like Madden Football and Metal Gear but once the came out with the first Halo I was really hooked so needless to say when the new Xbox 360 came out it was a must have video game system for me.
