At long last, we have the answer to the question, “What if they had made Halo for the Atari 2600?” The short answer, as I recently found out, is that I’d suck at that version, too.
Ed Fries decided to show us what it might have been like had Halo been made about 25 years earlier. And as the resident geezer at Nerd Bastards, I have to say, it’s pretty spot-on. The only thing I can think of is that Ed’s version is likely better than what would have come out back then, but as complaints go, that’s the one to aim for.
You can go here to play it.
