The original Xbox title was remastered for the Xbox 360 back in 2011, and the game was later included in the Xbox One compilation Halo: The Master Chief Collection released in 2014. According to The Strong, Halo proved that first-person shooters aren't exclusive to PCs; they can work just as well on a gamepad controller.
