It's attention to detail that can make a great game brilliant. Still fiddling with my Xbox controller (it sometimes works okay, but most of the time it doesn't) I loaded Halo. Here's a little test: stand up and make a 360 degree turn. Unless you swiveled around on your heels or toes, you've probably moved your feet three times to make a full 360 degree turn. I must have played Halo A to Z at least three times, but today I noticed for the first time that if you use the right thumbstick to make a 360 degree turn you will actually hear the Master Chief move his feet 3 or 4 times. How many first person games actually supply that level of detail in aural feedback? I don't think there were many when Halo came out.

Since MT-Blacklist inexplicably stopped working I had no other recourse than close comments and trackbacks to stop the spam. I've been meaning to correct this for quite a while, but life got in the way... in a good way I should add.
