Yes. Up until the other day, I had never been on XBox Live. Not owning an XBox/360 is the major contributing factor. But one of my new roommates has a 360 (with Live). It started with FINALLY playing Halo 2's campaign mode. When spent Wednesday and Thursday night playing it, and when we finished he asked if I wanted to play on Live. My immediate thought was: "I'm gonna get my ass kicked", but I said "sure, what the hell." Okay, I did get my ass kicked, but still managed to hold my own on occasion. I think playing Team Building and Big Team Battle was why, because a lot of people also had Guests playing with them. It was a lot of fun. And no, the thread title does not lie. There were absolutely no screaming children. It really confused me, but I realized a day or two later. We were playing from 10 pm to 4 am on a school night. All those kids were/should have been in bed. Nobody was yelling any racial and ethnic slurs either. There was the occasional "fucktard", but everyone who chose to use their headset (the games were very quiet) was very polite. No one even insulted my amateur playing ability, aside from a snide remark from a teammate about my driving when I got a Warthog stuck, but that wasn't even mean-spirited. But this has all opened up a can of worms. By playing Halo 2, Crackdown, and DOA4, and with Halo 3 (my roommate obviously has it preordered) on the way, I'm beginning to want a 360 more than ever. And my desire for a 360 has never been terribly strong. But I still need a Wii. ARGH!!! It's all too expensive!
