Games you should still be playing / Halo edition…yes the first one

TVGB: "Yeah, I know what you're thinking. I can hear you all yelling at your computer monitors right now, "You're living in the past!". Well, while that may be true in some aspects (I still pretend that Futurama and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 were never cancelled), I can safely say that it is not the case when it comes to videogames."

This game was aight, but tha series itself is pretty crap, sorry people, shoot me!!!

vickers5003737d ago

They should move away from the fps aspect of halo. Make a halo golf... wait for it.... IN SPACE!!!. Now thats a halo I would want to play :)

What, your drive would have to orbit the planet three times before it lands?

otherZinc3737d ago

you sound STUPID! and anyone that agrees with you is STUPID!

vitz33737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

Actually otherZinc, you're STUPID.

The Halo series is like a schizophrenic drooling monkey. Sure they might be a riot to play with but in the end they're still retarded.

Halo-hardcore fans are a dime a dozen. They're all the foam-mouthed potheads of the world who need nothing more than a generic mind-numbing shooter to fill their educational voids. They'll defend that series to the death no matter how stupid it is. MC can die in under 3 seconds from stepping onto lukewarm coals, but somehow managed to survive the HEAT OF RE-ENTERING THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE.

The world needs less Halo and Gears of War games. We'll be better for it if those games never came out in the first place. Maybe we wouldn't all have gone sh*t in our pants when we heard about chainsaw bayonets. I swear that idea is fu**ing stupid and never was cool.

The Halo series is crap. The only time Halo could be enjoyable is if I could somehow take my brain out of my head and shove it up my own ass. Only then will I be on the same mental-level as it's fans.

"I always thought the first one was incredibly disappointing. In fact I didn’t really think Halo nailed what Bungie wanted it to do until the third one single player wise."

I found this in the comments in the article and thought it was really funny. If that's the case... I wish Bungie had never nailed it. lol

No doubt about it I was quite a fan of the first game. I probably would give a SLIGHT edge to Halo 2 (Halo 3 just makes me sad) but the first game just had so much charm and it really seemed fresh. Not that it did anything real new... but it did alot for console shooters I think. Especially in controls. Before playing that I really did have problems with controls for most other FPS games outside the PC. Console FPS games have come a long way since then, but I still think Halo: Combat Evolved was one of the finest multiplayer experiences I've had.

Warthogs that didn't blow up and pistols that weren't useless... those were the days.

Halo 1 is truly the greatest FPS, and Gears is the greatest TPS. Sony fanboys really don't know what they're missing. Sucks to be them.

etownone3737d ago

agreed.

Gears is by far the best TPS i have ever played... especially the multi-player.

heyheyhey3737d ago

really?

i guess you kids never played Resident Evil 4

Gears is great, but Resi makes it look foolish

i can agree with you about Halo 1 being the best FPS..... maybe.... COD4, Doom, Quake and Half-Life are serious contenders

etownone3737d ago

you definitely bought a good point KID,

my OPINION is that Gears is the best TPS I have ever played, due in part to the controls, cover-system, multi-player, and online co-op.

Resident Evil 4 on is one of the best games I have ever played. Period.
At the time the graphics and over the shoulder third person view were amazing, but Gears graphics and controls are obviously much much better.

heyheyhey3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

fair play

glad to see there's SOMETHING that we can agree on

Resi 4 was just purely outstanding- the boss battles, the story, the weapons, the pirate, the costumes, the graphics, the controls

it was full of win

EDIT: hahahaha......... no

:)

i don't care if it's timed exclusive to the Gameboy Advance... as long as i get to play it

etownone3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

and you do know Re5 is a timed exclusive to the 360, right?

;)

j/k

n00bzRtehgey3737d ago

Amazing "shooters":

HL 1, 2, EP 1, 2.

DEUS EX 1 and 2. (yes, I said 2)

Mass Effect.

and yes, RE4 rules, but Gears is better.

One of the best games of all time.

Halo 1 - great single player
Halo 2 - great multiplayer
Halo 3 - awesome multi-player, good single player (4 player co-op is alot of fun)

The reason I bought an Xbox.

Isaac3737d ago

Halo never had good single player, and as of now, COD4 is better in the multiplayer front. Sorry

etownone3737d ago

halo never had a good single player?

that is your opinion, and you are definitely in the minority.

97 metacritic score, remember that fact kid. winning many GOTY, including IGN

It's easy to look back on a game now and say it sucks, but when Halo came out, it was the best console FPS ever, and is still considered one of the best of all time.
