Halo 3 will be played for yearsss

EDIT - I fukcing hate Team Slayer so much wow

yea I disagree with you...big time...if they add new content <IE maps, weapons...etc> for COD4 it will definitely have more staying power.

I played Halo 3 for about 2 months up till COD4 came out. Halo 3 is still in its cause and hasn't seen my Xbox in weeks and I think that the statistics prove that COD4 is enjoyed by more people.

lol ... I still have the love for the deathmatch games. I like zones/territories/domination style games a lot.

as far as your COD4 comment goes, I think Halo's staying power rests within the insanity of it's fans. That isn't to say they're insane but rather just insanley addicted to Halo. I used to play nothing but Halo 2. I've played Halo 3 too and thought COD4 was better. A lot of people I know feel the same way. Also ... people won't be seeing too many more Halo games. If you like Halo a lot then, Halo 3 is your game for a long time. COD4 will be replaced by 5 in a years time. I just don't think your comparison of the two games is all that fair.

What's wrong with Team Slayer???

...getting pwnd? ;)

The worst part about TS is the AR start. BR start and TS is great. But then again, that's why I play Hardcore. =)

i hate team slayer too man, only BTB slayer i can stand. CTF / Bomb FTW baby

and yes benz, dunno about him but i do get pwned. fokking snipers! i play hardcore alot too, BR start makes it much better when someone is dominating from range w/ sniper/splazer

Halo's staying power is all about the fanbase, not the quality of the game. Its a good game, but cod4 and ut are far better. Halo 2 built up a massive rabid fanbase being the first solid online console fps.

Yes millions will play it for years to come, but that doesn't mean its the best.

toughNAME3742d ago

lol I don't PWNED my team does!

I love playing with my friends, but its 'just a game' to them.

And yeah BTB is awesome. I don't like Bomb (especially Neutral Bomb) but I love CTF.

Come to think of it, I think the best game in Halo 3 is Sandtrap/multi CTF/BTB...soo many Wheelman medals :D

InYourMom3742d ago

including me. I thought the game go to much flack just because of it's heavy marketing campaign. The SP was great and I enjoy the online still.
