Is it possible that the top five games or at least five of the top ten games on Xbox 360 will belong to the Halo or Call of Duty franchises?
Yeah probably. I'm thinking it'll look like this in a few months 1. Halo 3 2. Modern Warfare 2 3. Halo 3: ODST 4. Modern Warfare 5. Gears 2 Yes Gears 2, Modern Warfare 1 and 2 will probably just knock WaW out of the top 5 completely.
Gears 2 wont be in the top 5 after this year .
Actually, i think it's Modern Warfare that will drop off the top 5 because i don't see anyone playing Modern warfare when the sequel will be out.
1.CoD MW2 2.Halo 3 3.Halo ODST 4.CoD [email protected] 5.CoD4 MW So many FPS's
I feel left for dead 2 has a chance of being in the running for a while but otherwise I agree with you guys above.
i think for quite a while its gunna look like this mw2 halo3 halo3 odst firefight waw cod4 then its gunna switch back to halo 3 on top OR halo3 odst firefight halo3 mw2 waw cod4 hell even this could be a possibility halo reach beta halo3 odst firefight mw2 waw cod4 i took out halo3 cause i would think that the collective that play halo3 would be spread out between reach beta, odst firefight and halo3 edit: now that i think about it, i think that the collective that play halo are gunna be spread out with halo3, odst firefight and reach beta, and the collective that play cod are ALSO gunna be spread out between cod4, waw, and mw2...so itll be pretty hard to tell which games will make the top 5 most played on LIVE
Well it's 2 of the best multiplayer games available so why wouldn't it be? I expect Forza 3 to be up there also.
Wouldnt they count Halo 3 and ODST as the same game, cause cant you play against people from Halo 3 in ODST
i think your wright. the multiplayer for odst is just Halo 3 with all the maps, so technically its just halo 3. You have also got firefight, but i am really not sure how that will be counted.
halo3 and odst multiplayers are different...halo3 multiplayer is also included on odst disk, but it will be counted as halo 3 the multiplayer for odst is firefight, and that would be different from halo3 multiplayer
i think it will be: 1) Modern Warfare 2 2) Halo 3 3) Halo ODST 4) CoD [email protected] 5) CoD 4 Modern Warfare 2 will be #1 for a while because all Halo noobs seem to flock to it like crazy (me being 1 of them). Im awesome at CoD but average at Halo. The skill level required to play Halo is really high especially with MLG kids running rampant, where as CoD well what can i say? on my host I = GOD!
Haven't Halo and COD already been dominating for a while? Written by Captain Obvious?
i can't wait for these two games to be released. but i think the top 5 will be 1)Modern Warfare 2 2)Halo ODST 3)Halo 3 4)Forza 3 5)Modern Warfare
1 - Modern Warfare 2 2 - Halo 3 3 - Halo 3 ODST 4 - Gears of War 2 5 - Forza MotorSport 3 6 - Left for Dead 2 7 - GTA IV 8 - Assassins Creed 2 9 - Brutal LeGenD 10 - UFC 2009
is Me2 coming this year?
i wish. but no it will be out sometime around jan-feb of next year
Call of Duty and Halo... two games I dislike the most this gen. Overrated garbage.
What do you play? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but those games are top for a reason.
I mainly play older games or good single player shooters but for modern online FPS it would either be KZ2 or more recently L4D on PC. Playing Halo3 is the equivelant to listening to Britney Spears :) Playing Call of Duty is the equivelant to listening to Phil Collins :)
Playing Killzone 2 is the equivalent to being tone deaf.
for some reason I laughed when you said Killzone 2. Serious question, what is it about Killzone 2? I just feel that it was sort of late to the party..and most of the bases was covered with Socom, Halo, Gears and COD. I rented the game..cause I did not feel it offered enough variation from those titles to warrant a purchase........oh yeah, I also forgot to add Resistance to that list. Then with that said, perhaps you did not play all the other titles, so it would make sense.
I havn't played Gears or Socom but they are TPS so I'd probably enjoy them alot. Resistance is pretty cool. Killzone2 has the variety in multiplayer than other games fail to achieve and end up getting repititive. I could argue there is no point in having any other online shooter if you have killzone2 :) Having said that, good online shooters usually have a lackluster single player, including KZ2.
I have a qusetion. Why you hate Halo?
Stop being so caviler about your franchise title, get off your ass and make it run better online. That is what killed Gears 2 for the majority of people I know that purchased it. Especially when they have options like Halo 3, COD:MW, COD:WAW since they all run a lot better on XBL.
Gears of war could never be on the top three for a long time . Fps are big on xbox 360 .
I think shooters in general are big on MS systems. I am a shooter fan and I don't prefer FPS over TPS. I just enjoy shooting killing and blowing sh!t up. (<- that could be taken the wrong way ;)) I have a feeling Gears 2 wont even stay in the top 5 once ODST and MW2 are released. IMHO those 2 titles along with Forza 3 and possibly WAW will help keep it out of the top 5. Whether it TPS or an FPS don't you feel it's runs a little clunky/sluggish online when you compare it to other shooters? For me it just doesn't feel like good enough net code to support P2P. I think this game is screaming for high bandwidth or dedicated servers. It's a shame Epic doesn't offer some dedicated servers to play this game on. I don't understand the problems with Gears. UT, from what I remember, has better online performance and with more players per side.
Epic should use dedicated servers like they use them in unreal tournament . Kind of sad they dont . Hopefully they will in the next game .
I'd love to see Borderlands stay in the top 10 for awhile. That's probably wishful thinking though.
i disagree with people saying that forza will be up at the top. the xbox is justa shooter type of console not racing.it may be both but you cant compare it to the popularity of halo and gears on live
Well, I certainly won't be playing MW2 over XBL. I'll be playing MW2 on either PC or PS3. I know, XBL is great, but PSN/PC is free, which in my situation actually does matter. Hopefully they'll release it on Steam from day one. ODST, on the other hand, may convince me to go for XBL once again. And have no doubt that it will be the number one game on Live until MW2 is released, then MW2 will be number one for a few months, only to give way to Halo 3/ODST for a long period of time. Say what you will about Halo, but it's bloody good and very addictive online. But screw 'em both when Brink drops. That's the multiplayer game that has my interests piqued.
It's called the shooterbox for a reason.
I could see this happening.
I agree Xbox 360 live would be dominated by 2 franchises and those franchises would be dominated by 10 year old kids.
Do you have numbers to back your theory or you just making sh*t up? I guess NO children play on the PS3, ever. Funny, because when I was a teenager when PS1 and PS2 were released, all my friends and I played Sony systems, I guess that made them bad systems then.
MW2 will be right at the top for sure, but i am not too sure about HALO ODST.
those are the games I will be playing.
