You might be enjoying Halo 4 and Black Ops II for now, but these yearly installments might actually be hurting your favorite series in the long run.

WTF... Halo is not annual.

I agree but there has been halo games yearly since halo 3 except 2008.
2007 Halo 3
2009 Halo wars And halo ODST
2010 Halo Reach
2011 Halo Remake
2012 Halo 4
2013 Halo 2 Remake?
2014 Halo 5 next console?

Dummy, Halo Wars came out in 08'.

To be fair, titles like Halo Wars and Halo remakes don't really count. In the same vein that a Mario spin-off wouldn't count as a new Mario game. Otherwise you could call Mario what a... quad-annual franchise? No stagnation there.

Halo 4 took four years to make, so unless Halo 5 is already well in development I can't see the next one until 2015.

Annual games aren't killing anything. It's gamers who buy them yearly are.
