Halo 2 was the first game i played on LIVE, i have gone to spent endless amounts of hours playing on LIVE. What was the first game you played on LIVE??
Xbox Live Is 10 Years OLD
Halo 3. LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
In a related note, if playing games on LIVE isn't free next gen, Microsoft done fucked up. Obviously they can still have a paid tier (with PSN like extras, and if they have to video services etc.), but there is no way they can justify it anymore.
@MikkaQ: Your parents must have loved that whole "World Wide Web" fad.
Oh yeah dead scared of it. Funny considering I had to teach them both how it worked. Then they knew enough to say NOOOOOPE.
Which I guess is fair enough, those were the days that every link you clicked had a 60% chance of showing you something soul-crushingly disturbing that you can't unsee. In today's socially oriented internet, the soul-crushing part comes from how stupid most people come across as.
At least they're giving out Wreckateer for free for 48 hours.
What the fuck does that even mean, that the game is free for everyone to play for the next 48 hours and you have to buy it after?
Or is the game just free for the next 48 hours.
I was way late to the whole Xbox 360 party, least interesting console of them all and all that. (considering what I already had to play on)
Don't even remember what my first Live game was.
My first Xbox Live game was Unreal Championship. I moved to Mechassault and any other game I could get my hands on after that. Halo 2 is definitely a fun one and I spent so many hours playing it. It's still my favorite Halo online experience.
EDIT: Wow, I just checked and apparently that was the first couple of games available to live? Awesome!
Ahh yes. 10 years of charging people for something that should be free. I only had it for a year and during that time I recall playing Halo 3, Gears of War 1 or 2, and Smackdown vs Raw 2009. SVR09 was the game I had the most fun with. Was just a shame that the community was nothing but terrible people that made Gears and Halo look like a paragon of intelligence and maturity, and that the game had terribly laggy online code.
the first game I can remember playing on XBL was Mechassault, like a lot of others. Of the original Xbox, I fondly remember playing spies v. mercs in Pandora Tomorrow, dogfights in Crimson Skies, terrorist hunt in Rainbow Six 3, and Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike. I also remember thinking I was good at Street Fighter then getting my world shattered when I played Third Strike online for the first time.
When I was 13 (2004ish), I snuck my mom's purse into the bathroom, took out her credit card and wrote the numbers on a piece of paper. Then I used it to activate my two month free trial of Live on the original Xbox. Never got a game to work on it, though. Eventually forgot to cancel it and got an angry phone call and punishment when my mom received her bill. None of that would have happened had Microsoft done the Membership cards in stores back then like they do now, so I blame them. But I digress.
First game on Xbox Live was probably Madden 07 on Christmas Day, 2006. Game that got me addicted was Call of Duty 3.
Did a 1 month trial when XBox Live first game out, but didn't bother to actually subscribe to it right out of the gate. My first game was probably Rainbow Six 3 on XBox 1 (October-ish 2003), about a year after I did my free month.
I actually had the broadband adapter for the Dreamcast prior to that, which was kind of fucking nuts as far as how difficult it could be to set up if you had no prior experience with network configuration. XBL was much, much easier.
First Xbox Live game? I believe it was either the Moto GP demo (which was amazing) or MechAssault. Man, did I hate MechAssault. The first LIVE game I spent any significant time with was Rainbow Six: 3. I played the shit out of that with my friends. LIVE was crazy back then since I was still in middle school/early years of high school. I'd come home from soccer practice, sign into LIVE and play with a dozen or so people I knew from school. Good times. Then we all grew up, but it was fun while it lasted...
Microsoft sent me an email with a code for an exclusive 10th anniversary helmet. Completely forgot that I have been signed up for that long.
Don't remember... but I do remember saying "Microsoft's doing a console? Seriously?", and now I feel old remembering that that was ten (well, eleven) years ago. Fitting that I randomly bought a book about the creation of the Xbox a couple of weeks ago. Interesting stuff.
