In response to Ms. Hammonds opinion of Halo 2, I would like to point out some things that she failed to. I would guess that in her saying that Halo 2 is loud she means the explosions, gun fire, and various other loud things that happen. Has anyone ever heard of a quiet explosion? There are a good amount of people on Halo 2 that do yell into their microphone, but in the defense of those of us who play it and don’t scream and yell we get annoyed with those people too. Yet again with the immaturity remark it is a manner of how one controls his or her self. I would also like to point out that women also play Halo 2, and with that stated, I’ve heard women screaming on Halo 2 also. All I would ask is that if you are going to write an article on Halo 2’s affecting your ability to get dates, or have girlfriends, then write the article about it. Don’t vent to the world about your boyfriend playing Halo 2.
