A flawed one (due to The Library being the worst), but yeah I think so, it was amazing and hugely influential.

I had no real interest in the Xbox at the time, then I played co-op Halo at a friend of a friend’s and was completely blown away. I bought my first Xbox the next day.

It's funny how everyone always complains about the Library, but that's one of the most memorable levels of that game for me.

Yes. At the time it was a 10/10 game, but it would be a 7/10 if released today. Some aspects of the game haven't aged perfectly.

I've been playing through the MCC and Halo 2 is superior in every way, despite thinking it was a step back when I originally played it. The original just had such a bigger impact.

Damn right it was and still is.
The fact that it was on a console was mind blowing and still is. Only way people will say otherwise is if they didn't play it at the time or were still suckling mom's teet and Halo 4 was their first halo.

IMO, no. It was incredibly influential but not a masterpiece by any stretch.

It is definitely a game that defined an era. It changed LAN parties from one of those nerd things to something everyone did. We would not be in our current state of gaming without it. We might have still gotten to a level of online connectivity, but Halo is what really blew the whole thing up.

IIRC Halo wasn't even the first console game to do LAN play or online play, but it made those things normal.

As a game it is definitely worth remembering. I remember moments from the first time I played through the campaign. All I knew of the game before I jumped into the campaign was the multiplayer so I had the controls down. I'm not good at shooters, but I can get through them on Normal.

Halo: CE has few flaws and the flaws it does have are either a symptom of the times or are not worth noting.

Does it stand up today? It is perfectly playable, but the gameplay was improved in later entries.
