ENNO3612d ago

PS3ALLDAY1223611d ago

Master Chief vs. kratos === kratos finish him and cuts his head off hahahahahahahaha

LastDance3611d ago

master chief isnt even a person....isnt he a canvas to put yourself on there or soemthing?

thereapersson3611d ago

Still idiots out there that think Halo is the be-all-end-all of first person shooters.

Halo is a great series (I played the hell out of Halo 1), but people really need to quit the "Halo = godlike" mentality.

Bolts3611d ago

Master Chief was obviously influenced by the infamous Doom marine. Its the same with Solid Snake, he was influenced by Snake Plissken. These characters don't put influences in other games, they had influences placed on them. Plus no self respecting devs will have their characters be influenced by MC or Snake simple because it doesn't make any sense to clone, a clone.

*pukes* see I'm influenced...

Skizelli3611d ago

If a game has you caring about its hero, like so many care for MC or Snake, then the game did its job in the emotion department. MC has just as much of an influence as Snake or any other major video game hero, simply because they mean so much to the people who play their games.

Skizelli3609d ago

To whoever disagreed with that, please put your fanboyism aside. My point was that, epically speaking, Master Chief did a perfectly fine job at touching his audience (you wouldn't understand the "Believe" campaign otherwise). To say he wasn't an influential hero is asinine. I'm not saying MC is more or less of an influence compared to Snake, but an influence nonetheless.

I'm down with Super mario bros and Xevious. 2 of my all time favorite games. Easily.

halo has no place on anyone's influential list, by the way.

iceice1233612d ago

Then why has EVERY FPS since 2002 been borrowing elements from it?

Silogon3612d ago

"Ever Since 2002"

There is where you went wrong.

iceice1233612d ago

Ever since Halo 1 other games have taken from it, you're wrong. Sorry you can't except the truth.

fenderputty3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

other then health regeneration, what has been taken from Halo since its creation? I'm seriously not trying to flame here.

San anto3612d ago

i believe what you meant to say was,
sorry you cant ACCEPT the truth.
fun fun.

gaffyh3612d ago

Lol, Halo wasn't the first FPS ever. This guys trying to do a "Gears invented third person gaming" thing with halo. ROFL.

GiantEnemyCrab3612d ago

Fender: Read this, it's a nice article talking about that.

Marojado3612d ago

I remember the first time i played the original Halo and everything just... fitted. The game was stunning for it's time and the controls were pretty intuitive as far as console FPS games went. That's not to say there aren't better games now, but Halo did have a big input in console shooters, and in keeping the original Xbox afloat in a market of skeptics.

fusionboxer3611d ago (Edited 3611d ago )

If you played pc games then you'd realize that all Halo did was successfully bring first person shooters to consoles in a way where gamers weren't saying "Screw controllers, where's my mouse".

Other then that it didn't bring anything that wasn't brought before.

So yea. Stop being one of those ignorant kids yapping off about Halo and do some damn research. I know most N4g users know what i'm talking about. Yes it was a fun game and did have great controls , but it's just another shooter that has now been overshadowed by Call of Duty. (I'm not even a huge COD fan anymore either)

deeznuts3611d ago

fusionboxer, I don't recall anyone complaining about wanting a kb/m with goldeneye.

thereapersson3611d ago (Edited 3611d ago )

This quote really made me smirk:

"Halo has left an indelible mark upon gaming in general, almost single-handedly redefining the relatively young FPS genre."

FPS games have been around since the late eighties. Get a clue, idiot.

He has a nice list of games actually. :P

juuken3611d ago

Obviously you did, otherwise you wouldn't be here.

iamtehpwn3612d ago

can your own game series influence you?
I mean, great series though :D

PS360WII3612d ago

ha yeah I was thinking about that as well

thor3612d ago

Since when does your own game _not_ influence you? I think it's fair to say that each of his games has improved (or just changed) upon the previous.

Elimin83612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

Especially if it turned out to be unexpectedly good.. you may wanna out do your self or push the limits which in kojima's case he really does or at least try to...

GameHero3612d ago

I like how he included MGS!
