Favorite Halo Moment
The temporary alliance of the Master Chief and Arbiter with the Flood on The Covenant
was brilliantly done. The eerie surroundings of a darkened Forerunner building, the vain defence the Covenant tried to put up against the shambling monstrosities fighting alongside you, and the ultimate betrayal of the Flood (again) at the end of the level.
Worst Halo MomentJorge's death. Not worst as in terrible, worst as in "dear god, why did you have to do that to me Bungie...no, there's just something in my eye..."
- "Evolution is an illusion, a name you give for the passage of time. Nothing changes. Nothing innovates. Throughout time, all that happens is that the universe remains constant, eternal...stagnant. And so you imagine that it improves, and by imagining it you make it so. It is the ultimate self-deception...because it makes it true. You try to innovate. You try to invent. And in your ignorance, you forget that all has been done before - by the Forerunners, or the Precursors, or by their predecessors. Your presence, your actions and their consequences, are ultimately irrelevant. When you are dead, your kind long since turned to dust, the universe will still remain, an impartial, unmoving and unforgiving monument to all our sins. And I will still be here."

Before anyone asks, too, the Fidel Castro avatar is done in irony. I may be relatively liberal, but I'm not a communist or a totalitarian. Ah, but the look of sadness as he clutches his flag, the way atear almost seems to be trickling down his cheek as he thinks of the long gone glory days of the revolution...
I have a Twitter account!
