Will Call of Duty and Halo fans ever settle their differences?
If any of these are on consoles then its just pointless comparing them to FPS on the PC - such an inferior ballgame on consoles.
I'm sure the halo fans have room for COD!! I mean seriously, what else is there for them out there?!
crackdown 2?! LMAO!
You don't need anything but Halo.
Can I vote killzone?
All jokes aside, its a tough choice. But in the end, I'd go with COD. COD4's multiplayer was CRACK.
"Let's be frank
now we all know both of those shooters are overrated anyways....."
At least 20 million people and several dozen critics disagree with you. If YOU think its overrated, then thats cool. But from my point of view, no other game this generation has better popularized online
multiplayer gaming better than the Modern Warfare franchise.
Like, literally since the day I got my PS3 in 2007, COD DLC(9 times outta 10) is that most bought item on the Playstation Network.
"Can I vote killzone?" YESSSS.
At the very least could you vote for a GOOD fps?
now we all know both of those shooters are overrated anyways.....
Halo 100% better, created own universe and characters.
COD only uses current war themes and Activision wishes for a new war somehwere so they can keep releasing "fresh" versions of the game
So we're comparing - An unplayably laggy borderline-broken FPS that gets worse with every patch. to: - An also ridiculously laggy (but to a lesser extent that's still mostly playable) game that feels like every map is underwater because you move so slow and jump high. ...Screw this, I'm going back to Counter-Strike. Even if my craptacular PC can only run it on low settings at about 40FPS.
Halo is not laggy, it's your connection, I have 100/10 Mbps and it works awesome
No rambling scientific theories please ...
The sun is just a star. Once it runs out of fuel (loooong after we're all dead), it will indeed stop shining.
The Sun is powered by the magic of Jesus, and for you to say that the magic of Jesus will one day run out is Blasphemy, BLASPHEMY I SAY!!!/S XD
both are good franchises in their own right. But if I had to pick one it would be halo. Not because I'm a Halo fan, but because of the SCI-FI aspect of it. I'm tierd of the G.I. experience . You turn on the t.v. your exposed to terrorism/war/ political shit. Not to say Halo doesn't have those plots in some similarity, but that's for fan's to break down.
But It SEEMS that the Halo series will soon top it. There hasn't been a real challenge to COD series since Halo 3 was released BEFORE COD 4.
I didn't even know CoD fans and Halo fans HAD differences. What is with IGN lately man? They are going straight downhill with their article quality. I'm a CoD and Halo fan and always just play both. I'll admit I play Halo and care for that series a lot more than CoD but I still love and play CoD like crazy ever since I got introduced to CoD2. Every friend I know who plays CoD and Halo are just the same. IGN talks as if their is some fanboy war between the two. Oh...and to answer the title: Halo, always.
the most played games on LIVE....The ONLY games played on LIVE...sad but true
you cant emphasize on "ONLY" when it isnt a fact...have you seen any of the "xbox live activity" lists?
Xbox 360 Top LIVE Titles (based on UU’s)
1 Modern Warfare 2
2 Halo 3
3 Red Dead Redemption
4 Call of Duty: WaW
5 FIFA 10
6 Call of Duty 4
lmao...360 owners play mostly shooters...cant deny it!
see, the term ONLY, implies that those 2 games exclusive are the only things being played, but as you can see, fifa and rdr are on there which is why i said you cant emphasize on ONLY just cause they its the majority...just came out as being a troll and implied the usual "there are no other games besides cod and halo" EDIT: btw..."lmao...360 owners play mostly shooters...cant deny it!"...THAT is true, but not what you originally wrote...even if you emphasized on "MOSTLY" there, we wouldnt be having this convo, cause i believe that THAT is true
@Hidef freak, its true that xbox players play shooters than anyother game. But the shooters on that list are pretty good (not mw2 since its so broken). However expand the list, there are other games there, racing, fighting etc.. The PSN should release stats like this I think. Im pretty much a shooter guy also, I love many shooters. Although the games coming out in the near future (NFS hot pursuit) so... There are other sports games, 2k9, NBA etc..ALso. But back to the article, many older players on halo switched to call of duty so that says it. Im sure its a similar story on the PSN, many many people play MW2 and many other shooters. I just want to see a list like this from sony to compare the console gamers them selves.
Throne...im not saying they deserve it...but damn glad it is not halo anymore
haha nothing but disagrees in here despite what everyone says LOL.. strait REDIC!
Well i do like halo more then cod tho but that's just my option
Not a huge fan of both, but I prefer Halo. Sci-Fi owns.
Halo rapes Call of duty are you people serious ??? Halo has some story elements unlike Call of duty. And second Halo Multiplayer is WAY better then call of duty. Yes halo has its kids but Call of duty is Miles worse. Halo trumps Call of duty in every way possible. Wake me up when we have a good comparison article ? Not a article were people say Call of duty simply because thats the only game they play or the only game they own. Give Credit where it is due. Its funny The Call of duty trolls throw disagrees. I can't wait when Activision laughs in your face giving you the same rinse recycle franchise with Minor improvements and you all get disappointed. LOL
Yes it rapes COD.
@Colonel-Killzone Halo rapes Call of duty side ways
To be honest these are to different types of games one is sci-fi and the other is not and i like my sci-fi more then again everyone has there own option and no one is right
How 'bout neither? I'd go with Killzone 2.
oh what?? thats how you got agrees? just mention a ps3 game? .. oh hellz yea.. Killzone 2 FTMFW! and OMG Socom 4 will rape these two games in the A :)
Hah, you got 3 agrees even though it was clearly intentional..amazing.
but thats a bit stupid to come into a COD vs Halo article (thus a 360fan filled article") and bring up a game fans of both franchises despise since they can't play it for sh!t =/
Neither. Both are way to arcade. Ill stick with my AA for realism.
Halo bends CoD over a table and rapes it into submission in terms of quality gameplay.
In a battle between mindless shooters does it matter who wins?
Go Halo. Halo at least cater to people who cares about headshots by making it useful.
Call of Duty died in 2005.
Halo3 was my best console-action-fps for a long time. Then came Killzone2 and COD:MW2.
Halo odst was a HUGE disappointment for me, no story, engine outdated, animation outdated, impossible to hide in shadows and play stealthy, too few environments... almost no pleasure to play it from the start to the end... no unforgettable scene, no reversal of situation... nothing.. I completed it some weeks ago and i barely remember it...
I hope Reach will be the real sequel to halo3.
CoD > Halo
anyone agree killzone 2 is better then both
Does it even have matchmaking? I got the game late (like a month ago when I got my new PS3), and whichever game I dropped into I get butchered by old timers toting their invisibility and what not. I enjoyed games where most didn't have advanced badges, but it clearly shows its age without matchmaking.
COD better than halo
That just made me laugh. MW2 is about as far from being a war simulator as Mario Kart is from being a racing simulator. KZ2 has the best feeling of war, the environments, effects and sounds are phenomenal, but still it's no war simulator. Operation Flashpoint is the only game I've played that has any right to make such a claim. Though I expect there are other such games out there I'm sure none of them have Call of Duty in the title.
but if I had to choose, COD4 <3
even tho i don't have a xbox i would vote halo better then cod.mw2 suck and its boring. COD4 > mw2
they are both very old school shooters and as such this is a very good question. answer: none of the above
