Macworld 1999: Hello, 'Halo'

Posted on

Happy sort-of birthday, Halo! Ten years ago today, the first Halo trailer made its debut at, uh, MacWorld.

And that’s how Apple became a major player in desktop gaming. Jk, jk, Halo went on to be Xbox’s super-hit title, and Apple has largely dropped out of the gaming marketplace. But man, that trailer still gets me.

Did you love Halo once upon a time, PopWatchers? And what tech announcements from this year will be met with similar nostalgia down the road?
