One of the most underrated, and yet important, video game design factors is the standard user interface that you have no choice but to use.
Halo, in my humble opinion, is the one game that brought consoles into the mainstream adult population with the incredibly well-written and orchestrated, Halo. In the end Halo became most famous for its online multiplayer but the story side has always been my favourite part of the entire series.
I’ve been a fan of the Canon DSLR series for quite some years now and my current weapon of choice is the Canon 600D, this is the one we use for most of our Lazygamer interviews and so far it has been a perfect combination of a great HD video camera and a static photo taker.
