Damn, and I thought I was the only one who dropped COD for Halo 3. Halo 3 is better. Great vehicles, awesome weapons, awesome physics, awesome game types, etc. So much crazy stuff can go down in one match that never could go down in Gears or COD. Don't get me wrong I like both those games but just not as much as Halo 3.

I actually did the same thing and dropped Call of Duty 4 for Halo 3 then dropped Halo 3 for Gears 2 and Left 4 dead now Halo Wars is number one on my most played list.lol, Halo will never die.

pumpkinpunker5578d ago (Edited 5578d ago )

Yeah, I'm buying Halo Wars soon...but mostly for the new maps although I'll definitely play the campaign.

Also, I find myself wishing Bungie would just remake all the best Halo 2 maps for Halo 3. I haven't found a map on Halo 3 that matches up to the top Halo 2 maps yet.

I Wonder how is Resistance 2 doing on PSN :P

cayal5577d ago (Edited 5577d ago )

Further proof the 360 fans have nothing to play. :P

halo 3 deserves to be number 1 too

dantesparda5576d ago

Are fvcking crazy! Halo 3 fvcking sucks! I have the game and can barely stand to play the game online, just check my gamertag and you'll see. I gues cayal is right and 360 just has no games to play, i know my 360 has just been collecting dust

It's no surprise really. Halo 3 is easily one of the best shooters around. Very fun and competitive gameplay that mixes original maps with unique weaponry and fun vehicles not seen in any other shooter.

I always go back to Halo 3 while the others gets a good run but I eventually retire them and go back to Halo 3. I'm still trying to get my level 50. I'm stuck at 48! :(

But I'm having to much fun with Street Fighter 4 and Halo Wars and that's what is seeing most of my online play right now. But as always, I will eventually go back to Halo 3.

I find this very odd.

Why play Halo 3 when you have COD4, Gears, and Unreal Tournament? Halo is kind of fun, but it's not like...incredible.

ChampIDC5578d ago

I've found that any Halo game is a lot more fun playing with your friends than random people. If I'm alone, I stick to CoD4.

edgeofblade5578d ago

Maybe because Halo with a handful of friends is more fun than people want to give it credit for. Just a thought.

na2ru15578d ago

Believe me. It's more hectic and such a laugh with guest players tagging along. I use to play Halo3 all the time simply for it's SPLIT-SCREEN capabilities.

Haze had a pretty cool feature with the old school drop in drop out feature. Shame it became unnoticed.

mboojigga5578d ago

How is it odd to have options of no matter what system. Halo 3 shows exactly what Halo 2 did and what Halo did. The game is that good. They keep updating it with new maps and what more can you ask for?

IF COD 4 was getting the same treatment we would see them battling it out back and forth and look at it now. Bot slot 2 and 3 are filled with COD.

LeonSKennedy4Life5578d ago

...but if that was the case, Haze would've sold better. I definitely love that there's 4-play split-screen...especially online. It's just all very confusing for me. Halo is neither fast or strategic. It lacks that "fun-factor" for me. I was the same way with World at War. I thought COD4 was much better!

edgeofblade5577d ago

If you don't "get" Halo 3 and are honestly open to trying to understand, get a group of 3 players together and play through the game on the hardest difficulty. That becomes much more tactical once the enemy snipers can bring you down with one shot.

lowcarb5577d ago

Actually Halo is more strategic than pretty much any other shooter out there and fun is what made it so great. Not saying your opinion is wrong but there's a lot of depth there if you give it a chance.

I'm surprised that CodWaW is still above CoD4. I thought it would switch back the other way after a few months, but I guess I was wrong.

ShabzS5578d ago

just wait till the new zombie nazi dlc maps come... it might even top the list

Halo will always be played, as long as it's supported.
