Pitchfork recently interviewed Eddie Argos, the lead singer of Art Brut (a band I like, although I have yet to hear their latest album). When asked what his favorite video game is, he responded with a funny anecdote about Halo:

[Halo]‘s not my favorite, but I can’t play a game; I’d rather sing about it: [singing to the tune of the Doors' "Hello, I Love You"] “Halo, I love you, you’re my favorite game,” or [to the tune of the Beatles' "Hello Goodbye"] “I say go out, you say Halo, Halo, Halo!” I’d actually sing that quite often, like he wouldn’t go out; he’d stay and play Halo. So for Jasper I’ll say Halo’s my favorite game, because of all the songs we wrote about it. [sings] “Halo, Halo/ You say go out, I say Halo” [laughs]. That’s why I like it: I like Halo because we used to write funny songs about it.
