Legacy you left out some details... the first Halo game was called Halo: Combat Evolved not Modern Combat and Master Chief doesn`t die (look for a cutscene after the credits) he`s simply lost in space with Cortana.

"They should`ve made it Gordon Freeman. He`s way better than that Chief fellow."

Halo owns half life, that game is so old I cant believe you even said that.

I didn`t skip school for Halo 3, my teacher did. Of course, I only found this out when I actually got to school. A waste of two hours that I could have been playing Halo 3! So it took from 1 PM to 10 to beat the game. Ahh, good times.
Now I`m gonna go do it again.

I WANT THIS STATUE AT MY SCHOOL. Or in my room.... that`d be awesome.

And Bigfatpig, they had to make the gun and helmet themselves. Bungie has only made scaled down replicas, nothing life-sized, nothing big enough to fit a statue.

I hope that statue stays like that forever.

Oh, and the Beaver emblem is also fitting because of the multiplayer level Beaver Creek, home of much madness and win.

"You can tell most people on here are geeks from reading these comments. It`s not `incredible`, it`s not `genius`, it`s not `awesome`. It`s `alright`. Doesn`t take much to spray a helmet and gun brown and put them on a statue for crying out loud."

To be fair, though, they probably had to make the helmet and the gun themselves, since I don`t know of anyplace you can buy things like that without them being outrageously expensive.
