Halo played by Twitch is an exercise in great patience

TwitchPlaysHalo is ridiculous.

Halo: Combat Evolved is the latest game to be sucked into the “TwitchPlays” phenomenon, and the results are somewhat painful to spectate.

If you’re not familiar with the setup, which debuted with TwitchPlaysPokemon, the game accepts commands from the channels’ chat stream.

Although it doesn’t have the strategic RPG elements of Pokemon, Halo is in other ways a much more complicated game, and navigating not only a character but a reticule in 3D space is proving – tricky.

Goodness only knows how long this will take. You better get some sandwiches.
