Default Halo: Reach - Who's excited/obsessed?

Hi all,
I'm new here. I came here because I'm excited about Halo: Reach, but I see that there isn't a thread about it, yet.

I've loved most of the games Bungie has put out (Halo 2 sp was sorta crap, though multiplayer was fun), and it seems they're going back to their roots with Reach. Anyone else excited?
Did anyone pre-order? If so, which edition? I pre-ordered the console bundle, my old 360 died. I kinda want the Legendary . . . though I don't know why. Am I a slave to swag? I guess so.

Could not care to be honest after playing Halo 2 and ODST for about 10 mins each i will not be playing any more Halo games.

The first was good but no does not do it for me now. Heck i have Halo 3 still in its wrapper sitting in my games pile.

Hey all,
I am also new here and saw this post and thought i would back you up cephalopoid cause it don't look like you are getting much Halo love up in here. : )

I couldn't possibly be any more pumped for REACH so i would prob put myself in the obsessed catagory its gunna be awesome i have been hanging for its release since i played the beta in may and instantly pre ordered Legengdary edition before i even knew the price.

I am going to the midnight launch (my first ever!) and have organized a day off work for sep 14th. It will be the best Halo yet they have taken the best parts of the Halo series especially Halo CE and added a bunch of new stuff too. It is gunna be EPIC!

Only 7 more days bring it on!

I really don't understand all the hate around Halo. I understand if it's just because you want more realism in your shooters and what not, but then, if you like realism, why even pick up Halo in the first place?

And why even respond to a thread about Halo?

Oh well.

I think Halo has been a great series and did a lot to push the FPS genre forward.
First of all, for the first time on a console shooter, Halo:
Dedicated a button to throwing 'nades.
Dedicated a button to melee.
Made driving vehicles easy and awesome.
Made aiming smooth without the crazy target lock many games have.
Forge mode is great.
And my favorite: Theater Mode. I don't understand why every game doesn't include a theater mode.
Plus, Halo has some of the smartest enemy AI in any game.

I'm with you Ceph altough I dont think it was the first FPS on a console maybe on the XBox, but nevermind I think it is a great game. My only critism is Halo 2 and 3 where heaps shorter than the first Halo, that game was huge, and had a great story to. I loved ODST playing the 4 differnt members of the team it worked well and all fell into place at the end. But never mind me I am a Fan Boy of Halo Oh the multiplay on Lan or split screen or both, Hours and Hours of side spliting fun whats not to love about this game.

One thing I never understood about the series is what kind of feel they were going for over all.

I mean they have these space marines who are supposed to be all badass which seems like they want a serious space epic feel, and then half the enemies are midget aliens with comical high pitched voices and pink vehicles :S
