I had already read the books, before I got up to the level, 343 Guilty Spark, and in the books the flood seemed really freaky, so when MC was watching Pvt Jenkins video, my heart started pounding at a thousand Kilometres an hour. But when I started shootin the infection forms I was like "oh this is so easy" and then when I saw a combat form, I was like "HOLY SHIT DIE!!". I wasted all my ammo shooting 3 of the combat forms, just to make sure they were dead. So as you are probably thinking, I was pretty screwed after that.

I didn't think it possible for anyone to read The Flood before playing Halo.

I was basically just running around killing them while wondering "wtf....?".

I hated the Library, it was a pure chamber of torture, to put it that way! I hated it.

When I saw the Flood at first, I was thinking, "That hideously mutated walking bag of flesh coming right at me is probably not friendly." But at least they taught me efficient ways of staying away from something. On the first game I played, however, I didn't listen clearly to the Monitor during my romp through the Library, so I was a bit confused as to where the Flood actually came from, and what their purpose was on the ring.

Aaaaaahhhhhh! Die you F***ERS! I mean what the hell?
I was just wanting to pass library so i wouldn't have to play it again until on next difficulty! And then they'd come back to life (as much life as a mutant can) and I was like Holy S***! Aaaahhhh! Let me out! I'm to important to die!

The Flood scared the f**k out of me!! I was late getting Halo (I got it on November 9 along with Halo 2, I was hooked after that) my friends all said that I was going to be scared at that level, but I had no Idea. after the cutsene where you see the private jinkins tape, I had to pause and get over my fear before I could continue. I was like master Chief from TSAH when he said "to hell with this, I'm not paid to star in Resident Evil!" then runs out in fear.

My first reaction.This is a direct quote of my friend. " WTF !!!!!!!! GET AWAY FROM ME !!!!!! My reaction. "Holy S**T !!!" and yes, i used to hate the library alot. But for some reason im starting to like it .

-------------------------------
Red Vs. Blue episode -- 54

radio-- Distress, distress, a little more disstress. Oh man that's alot of distress.

Simmons- That's all it says doesnt even say where or who !

Sarge-- We know who it is, it's on the radar open channel. That means the reds have survived into the future. Don't ya see what this means ?

Grif-- *sigh* Tht we have absolutly no hope of getting out of this army ?

Sarge-- NO ! it means we mustive beaten the blues ! Otherwise there wouldn't be any reds left. Finally Victory is ours ! Wait a minute, this means i'm missing the entire war aww Dammit !

Grif-- Yeah everything must be great thats why they sent out a "distress signal."

Donut-- Maybe it's not a distress signal !
Maybe it's a this dress signal ! Or maybe it's some open invitation to a formal ball !!

Grif-- Ok ? Lets go with Sarge's version.

There a frickin pain in the @$$, especially in the library, with the combat forms armed with the rocket launcher.

3 o'clock in the morning, in the house on my own and suddenly i'm attacked by these freaky-ass zombies, it scared the hell outta me! so i jus went insane and started loosing lead

-------------------------------
5 million grunts danced with pitchforks opened their mouths and sang with their fellow Jackals who hesitated because they couldnt speak english and therefore barked and chirped like a bunch of mutated chickens with their heads cut off, the grunts were disgusted with the terrible noise and decided to make farting noises this offended the cleric and he started humping the Master cheifs leg who had just drank a gallon of medicine because he had just decided he wanted to drink bleach to keep his stomach from exploding.
