Today’s WTF: 14 People Still Playing Halo 2

Halo 2 XBLThis is one for the history books, folks. On April 15, Microsoft said bon voyage to the old XBox Live, sending it away into that soft, tranquil night. Or on a boat in a waterfall, like Boromir’s arrow-riddled corpse in Lord of the Rings (spoiler alert). Anyway, they said bye to the old XBL, discontinuing support for original XBox games, including Halo 2.

However, there are some refusing to let this die. You see, there are 14 diligent fans that are continuing to play Halo 2, leaving their consoles up and running, connected to the old XBL. That’s right. 14 people in the entire world, and they say they are not stopping any time soon. There are actually several livestreams broadcasting a few of these last games, flickers of a game that won’t go quietly into that good night.

Here are the gamertags:
Agent Windex
sherlok 1
z0mbie stench
Lord Odysseus11
H2o Shoagie
xxBooker Dxx

While I think the idea of playing a game that old for that long is ridiculous, you have to admire these guys’ commitment to this game. So what do you guys think? Worthy of salute, or mockery? Go!

  1. quick lets all join, or is it too late? This has to be one of the more awesome things I have read, lets all just fuck with an entire company. I salute you.

  2. A little of both. I mean, I am all for retro games, but come on! But when all their consoles get the RROD at the same time…hahahahahahaa

  3. worthy of mockery because it’s a Halo title XD.

    I remember my friend bought Halo 2 and him and I finished the campaign in a few hours… Considering I don’t play console games: What poo, what incredibly viscous poo.

  4. I am very happy to here that there are people commited to keeping old games alive. I salute you for those for attempting to try to keep the fire going on by trying to extend the game for as long as possible. BY the time I enter this post there are now only 13. I am happy to see you trying to keep the spirit alive. If I had the chance I would do it too.
