9 Reasons why Halo sucks... you in
It makes you the Hero
Sure, the games are about the Master Chief and his companions but there's a reason why you have never seen the Chief's face before - it's a deliberate action so that you feel like you are in control, that you are saving the universe and that you are the Hero.
What's not to like about that?
While The Library in the original game some times feels like the Hotel California in that 343 Guilty Spark checked you in but won't let you leave until you have killed every last one of the muthucking face huggers.
This level is infamous within the Halo community as being long and intolerable - even the new Anniversary edition of the game recognised this and gave it two fairly challenge achievement point rewards other than for completion!
The Library sucks you in because it's where you are truly tested as a Halo player. When playing on the harder levels and the Monitor goes off to put out a fire somewhere it's you versus the Flood. This section of the game sorts out the men from the boys
The Sniper Rifle
There is nothing like taking down an Elite with a single shot to the side of the head to begin the festivities. A sniper rifle can help you out when you're low on ammo and in a tight spot. You need to take out the big fellow from afar? The Sniper rifle is your friend there. Want to camp out on a Halo map to pick of your foes one by one? Sniper rifle is a killing machine.
Cortana - the thinking man's A.I.
Was there ever such an eloquent (or sarcastic) female character in a game before Halo was unleased on the world 10 years ago? Cortana has been the Chief's guide and moral compass in 3 Halo games and looks set to be his cheer leader in the Reclaimer Trilogy (possible rampancy issues aside). Halo sucks you in because they employ her feminine wiles and charms to good effect.... i.e. they gave her big boobs.
Come for the campaign, stay for the multiplayer they say and I think that's pretty much the best way that Halo sucks... you in. With well design maps and great game types, Bungie and their friends were true pioneers of the Xbox live multiplayer universe and ensuring the continued successes of the franchise. There's nothing like like getting a 10 kill streak as you dominate a field of players who've been matched to your 'true skill' level.....
Easter Eggs and cool shit like that
The first Combat Evolved had Easter Eggs and every Halo game since. It's become a key thing that the fans love in the games. Finding a reference to Jones the Cat or 4 Banshees hidden in the Package Reach level are the icing or frosting on the cake that make Halo so damn delicious. Here's some more Reach Easter Eggs.
Melee to the back of the head
There's nothing like sneaking up on an Elite that's supposedly on watch and crushing the base of his skull with an armoured arm! Nor is there anything sweeter in a multiplayer match where you have no shields but manage to land that crucial melee to your foe.
Like Gears of War's Insane mode, this sorts out the ODST from the Spartans. Playing Halo on legendary mode is for me the epitomy of game design and game play. Everything in the Halo universe comes together. Whether it's tacking a hairy cackle of rebelling Brutes down some tight corridors or taking on a trio of suicidal grunts
It's got the Master Chief in it
Nuff said eh?

|This is Sonya and her dragon friend|
The very best 'Red Sonya' cosplay costumes and pictures from the Comic Cons
I always thought Red Sonya was a character from Conan the Barbarian but it turns out she's more that a sexy red headed warrior goddess with big tits, she's also a popular comic book character in. in which see's often refered to as the 'she-devil with a sword'.
Her assets and attributes make her an ideal target for cos players who don't mind sharing a bit of skin. Here's the Red Sonya cosplay pictures that have resulted.... enjoy the compilation.
|This Red Sonya has a Cindy Crawford kind of thing going on|

Every body loves Rogue from X-Men - she's like the girl next door X-Men all sexy but seemingly obtainable - either way she struck a chord with fans of the comics and films and she's great cos play fodder.
Enjoy these cosplay pictures of Rogue in her comic version.
If you loved these girls all dressed up as Rogue, you're gonna love Jean Grey
This Stormtrooper either has a really bad nose bleed or is a zombie and really really wants to eat you brains!
Get your Sith Lord loving in the forest of Endor - I'm sure there's some Star Wars fan fiction gathering dust some where how a handsome Jedi fell in love with a Sith Lorde... either way this picture is of a real couple who share a love of Star Wars role play!
|A body painted Sith Lord.|
|The Case of the Golden Bikinis|
The Return of the Jedi movie is famous for it's terrible Ewok, Luke saving Vader and Princess Leia strangling Jabba the Hutt whilst wearing an incredibly hot golden bikini that has driven Star Wars fan boys nut with hot feelings. The Leia bikini has become a standard and cos play events all around the world.
You may have seen the Leia bikini before but you probably haven't seen a body painted female Sith Lord before? If the lovely lady below is body painted, does that mean she is nude?

|That's an HR issue about to explode....|
Here's a naughty Darth Vader feeling up the breasts of his sexy Star Wars trooper. It's almost star wars cos play gone wrong but I bet the fan boys will love this!
Oh wait? You wanted some more Princess Leias in their bikinis? Here they are!
I think that's actually Top Model Adrianne Curry dressing as Leia there!
|Here's some ladies from the star wars burlesque show|
This star wars trooper never appeared in any Star Wars film I ever saw. Is she and her corset in an extended Blu Ray version?
Stars Wars was big on merchandising - George Lucas famously managed to keep the merchandising rights for himself and was laughing all the way to the bank - I wonder how much coin George raised for this rather stunning C3PO bathing suit. Does it count as cosplay? Probably not but if you have any complaints, see management.
You got love this team - it looks like some kind of crazy Wizard of Oz adventure gone horribly wrong - that's C3PO on the right, Mr R2D2 on the middle and perhaps an anorexic Wookie on the right!
Here's some fly boys - X wing pilots, Y Wing adventurers and A Wing Dashers. Perhaps best known as cannon fodder for Darth Vader and his Tie Fighter pilots!
|R2D2 and friends|
|Frak it's Katie Sackoff! What kind of Star Wars fantasy is this?|
