    I played about half an hour of it before I decided that it was boring.
    I actually put down the controller and started doing chores around the apartment.

    yeah thats why it sold more copies than killzone 2 in the first day :hsugh:

    its a space shooting alien game. I dont know why people take it so seriously, like it has to be super realistic or something like cod4.

    Sold more copies by name. If you were able to returned new games at full price im sure it would've tanked.

    I was happy with Halo: Combat Evolved...
    Halo 2's cliffhanger ending pissed me off, so I HAD to play 3 to finish the story.
    But Halo 3's multiplayer reeled me in until CoD4's multiplayer rolled around.
    I gave Halo Wars roughly 20 minutes of my time before I decided it wasn't for me.
    I tried ODST at my friends house today, and it really just doesn't have anything to offer.

    The story is Halo 2 from a different angle. It's the same old song and dance, and it's far less entertaining.

    When Reach comes out, I'll give it a try. At least that one should have a story that gets my attention. :dunno:

    I've never been very impressed by the Halo franchise, the story is decent...but I'm a larger fan of the Half-Life universe.

    i dont know why but it seems like halo has always had this large group of people who are never impressed with it

    i remember when the first one was out people were just saying its a half life clone

    guess the more you sell the more people that hate you
    kind of like the wii

    Half-Life clone?
    I hardly see the resemblance at all. All though... Gordon Freeman > John 117
    And I LOVED the first Halo. It's pretty much been a downhill slide since.
    I call it the "Poke'mon Effect".

    Never as good as the original, but it's always going to sell.

    I can't agree more. Halo never caught my interest. I guess that's because I'm not a huge MP person and focus more on the SP experience. Half-Life > Halo by miles with single player imo

    the first Halo I ever played was 3...and I ran through the campaign, did some multiplayer...then went back to Gears of War. It was just boring playing that game. After Call of Duty 4 came out, I never touched it again.

    Never understood Halo's popularity. It is just an average FPS game. Is it just popular because it was on a console and caught the attention of a group of people who had never played one of the much better FPS games on the PC? That's all I can figure.

    It's popular because of some epic marketing and luck and it was many peoples first experience with online networked FPS multiplayer [sadly] I can't imagine having gone my childhood without Quake2 and its modding community, and all the other fps games I played online, like unreal, shogo, etc.

    HALO is and probably always be a sub par FPS. Not one of them has brought something new to the table that hasn't been done before. To be honest I have no clue why it is so popular.

    i was a huge Halo 1 and 2 fan back in the day. I was in middle school/high school and coudnt afford a PC, so Xbox and Xbox Live was FTW. But now that I have my gaming PC, i cant stand halo. Ever since it moved to the 360 it seems bungie completely took away anti-aliasing. The jaggies are rediculous and are so bad i dont want to play online and just get the campaign over with. I also miss "X" to reload, cant stand the RB buttons, and they need to bring back the OG pistol.

    you can customize your control layout, and they did bring back the og pistol. Have you tried this new game called Halo 3: ODST?
