3 Reasons Why Halo is The Perfect Console FPS

AlienLion writes:
Come here often? Then, you know that we’ve been mentioning Halo in a somewhat negative context, lately. And why wouldn’t we? Halo was probably the first… uh first person shooter that became cool to hate and we are cool (right g… errr bros?). At around the stretch between Halo 2 and Halo 3 inclusive, it was the ‘CoD’ of the industry, in terms of fame and success, to the point that it earned itself that remarkably, unbelievably clever nickname from the hardcore crowd–”Failo”.

On top of being completely not old school (and thus uncool), it also had a rather shitty influence on the entire genre. Every developer wanted a Halo so they mindlessly copied it in the most retarded fucking waypossible (hail to the king). But does it all make Halo itself bad? Is any of that actually its’ fault? If I’m honest, I’d say not. After returning to the series with some Halo 4 time, well, I’m still not the biggest fan but I came to understand just how fucking brilliant it is and why. See, at the core of Halo is a very simple realization that so many developers seem to miss–it is a console action series. Let me explain: (Culture, Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo Series, Xbox, Xbox 360)

i have loved halo 1 through reach
and its disappointing what 343 has done with it
the sigle player was not bad
but they made a halo/COD hybrid
bad playlists, lag, unbalanced weapons
horrible kill cams
the multiplayer is just god awful
forge is a great step down from reach's forgeworld
its currently in beta stage (or atleast looks like it)
fans at the halo waypoint forums agree
its just not Halo
for now im sticking with halo 3 and reach

Its funny because I have never been a Halo fan at all but I did try to play some of them.I liked Halo1 alot and Halo3 but Reach was just terrible.to say that its a hybrid is just wrong in every way.Reach was by far the worst one that I have tried and Halo4 to me is really good.Theres no lag at for myself i cant see how the guns are unbalanced from the other games.the grenades are nerfed but thats all I would complain about.I cant figure how you get it looks like its in a beta stage.the game looks great, it plays great,its smooth as butter and the game couldnt have been any more balanced.I think you have fogotten that this generation is trying to move forward no hang back in the past and be like the COD franchise.I look at it in one way.Its one less whinney person to listen to in the load screen.

"they made a halo/COD hybrid"

Prove it... Oh see I already got you. You cant prove it because its far from it.

"the multiplayer is just god awful"

.... Again, prove it...

You know you may be saying you dislike it for reasons A, B and C which is ok. But your being so unbelievably broad about it that someone who actually likes the franchise cant take your seriously.

Woah, I wouldn't listen to the general population of HaloWaypoint kids. They don't even know what's good for them.

I agree, halo 4 has the worst multiplayer of all the halos.

"anyone who needs aim assist is not a hardcore gamer and they are casual."

So what? I don't like playing fps without a keyboard and mouse anyway. Aim assist just makes it more bearable for me. I guess all PC gamers are not hardcore then?

love halo, its an awesome franchise, but everything about it would be 100% better on pc

multiplayer, dedicated servers...owned

graphics, bye jaggies and low res textures and slow framerate

mods

co-op

every game is or would be better on pc
calibrat  +   1004d ago
I can agree with that.

FARCRY 3 is by far the best FPS and open this year.

Halo 4 is good but it still needs a few fixes here and there in the multiplayer, which in time will probably be taken care of so don't worry to much peeps.
