I usually only play on Legendary in co-op. I stick to Heroic on PC when I'm by myself (Normal on consoles). I beat Reach on PC on Legendary by myself no problem, but Halo 1 Anniversary I had to give up on the 3rd level. THIS is the Legendary I remember. I was thinking Reach on Legendary was too easy. The old PC port of Halo 1 I beat a few different levels on Legendary (can't believe I did the fucking Library on that difficulty), but the whole game no fucking way.
And I don't think anyone will give a shit if it never comes to PC either. XB1 can keep that shit.
I was planning to do the same and wait for a sale, but a friend hooked me up for Christmas. The only Halo games I own prior to MCC was original Gearbox port of Halo 1, Halo ODST, and Halo Reach (I bought the special collector's edition cuz it was Bungie's last Halo game). A friend also sold me the X360 version of Halo 1 Anniversary for $10 some years ago (barely touched the the XB1 MCC version). All the other Halo games on console I have either borrowed or played with friends at their houses. Been through 'em all a few times (some many times) over the years, both the original versions and with XB1 MCC. I've been through Reach a ton of times on X360 both solo and co-op, but playing it on PC with mouse and keyboard was like I finally, TRULY played it for the first time. I said the same thing about Halo 2 using Project Cartographer (I did play the original PC port Halo 2 Vista back when it came out, but oh gawd please don't remind me about that shit). Looking forward to finally fucking playing Halo 3 and ODST with mouse and keyboard. Reach and ODST are the two games I've wanted to play with mouse and keyboard the most.
The trick to beating Halo CE on legendary is ammo conservation. If you hit a checkpoint with no ammo it can be impossible to beat and you have to restart the whole level.
