When a video game series is as widely famous as the Halo series, which includes Halo 3, of course, then it's bound to result in there being many screenshots takes. This piece concentrates on some of the weird and wild Halo 3 screenshots.
Before mentioning the Halo 3 screenshots specifically, let's take a look at the figures that generate all of this media. Over 9 million copies of Halo 3 have been sold to date. That means that if every person who purchased the game plays for only 10 hours, there are more than 90 million hours of game time from which to choose screen shots. A lot can happen in 90 million hours, and with all the picture-uploading websites online, a lot of it has been documented.
One of the things in Halo 3 that has often been documented in Halo 3 screenshots is what Master Chief looks like or more specifically, what his face looks like. If you use a search engine to look up the top 10 Halo 3 screenshots, you'll find a screenshot of Master Chief lying dead on the ground, clearly not showing a face inside his helmet. This explains why we never see his face, say many players, because he does not really have one.
Another of the Halo 3 screenshots featuring in the top 10 Halo 3 screenshots is that of a Marine getting hammered on a floodgate. Someone commented that it looks a little bit like Han Solo when he was frozen in Carbonite. And guess what? - they're absolutely right.
The designers of Halo 3 decided to make it much simpler for players to grab Halo 3 screenshots and to share them on the Internet. In order to achieve this, they created a 'Saved Films' feature in the video game. This feature permits players to slow down the action, or even to freeze it, change the camera position and even move the camera around to get exactly the screenshot they would like to see. Generally speaking, the 'Save Films' feature records all the action that takes place in the game, so it can later be turned into videos are screenshots.
Yet another feature that has a lot to do with Halo 3 screenshots in the 'Save Films' feature, is the viewing of previously saved films. You see, the saves are not just pictures or film, they are actual game data. This means two things: A] the file size is very small and B] the whole game can be replayed from different viewpoints on the Xbox 360.
That means that a person could watch a game again and again, finding new things in new places every time they look at it. That's a great deal better than plain Halo 3 screenshots.
