i seriously dont think so but it probably loose alittle steam if they dont give it some time off a couple of years is they dont let the demand for it to build up but i think halo reach did the job in getting people intrest even if they were getting tired of it

No matter how you might personally feel about Halo, its hard to argue its on a downfall when Halo3 sold 10mil, and the spinoff ODST is among the best selling games of the year. Halo Reach is likely going to be the biggest games in 2010, the cinematic was awesome, but personally Alan Wake is my most anticipated game of the year, followed closely by ME2, and there are so many other great games this year, we're being spoiled with games.

Nope its not. If anything its on a RISE. Halo Reach looks to be a VERY different Halo and if it's the first game to use Natal support..MAN the casuals are gunna freak lol. As far as the hardcore crowd is concenered COD already destroyed Halo's community.

In popularity and sales, no. In quality, definitely. Halo hasn't been the same since CE.

I've played all the Halos (except Wars, I don't like RTS), and it's obvious the Combat Evolve is still at the top. Yes, Halo 3's online is a lot of fun, but the campaign is, imo, weak. ODST is just.. laughable (again, my opinion).
Since Reach is based on the novel (or at least, I think it is), I think the campaign this time around is gonna be both longer and better. Not to mention the fact the Bungie is probably going to perfect their multiplayer formula. Like I've said before I'm really looking forward to Reach.

If Halo's QUALITY, as you say, is on its downfall then why are so many people still playing it?

Another question, if Modern Warfare 2 sucks then why are so many people STILL playing it? Lemme help ya out

"IMO In popularity and sales, no. In quality, definitely. Halo hasn't been the same since CE."


Its okay if u don't like Halo, but Halo's multiplayer doesn't suck if ur into FPSs. Halo 2's campaign was horrible though FACT.

I'm sure if Halo Reach can't match Halo 3 then yes it is on a downfall, otherwise there still may be life left in the franchise yet.

COD steam rolled over Halo's community. It's still massive, but it will never be number one consistently on live like COD is.
