What did Halo ever copy from COD?

Halo did matchmaking before COD (Halo 2)
Halo had a online ranking system before COD (Halo 2)
Halo had DLC before COD (Halo 2)
Halo had a COD elite kind of service before COD (
Halo always had a better single player than any COD game.

What a weak attempt at trolling.

You are only getting agrees from people who hate Halo.

im not a halo fan but you are right. halo was the 1st big multiplayer game to change gaming online. if anything cod copied halo

COD was once a good game. I remember when the first COD came out. I always thought it was much better than Halo. It felt like it took more skill rather than Halos "spray and pray" mechanic. Lanning on PC with friends and COD.....ah so fun. And saying Halo has a better single player than COD is just your opinion.... so ya. proves nothing

Halo had a online ranking system before COD (Halo 2)
ranking system.

cod also had an expansion not dlc but at least extended gameplay.

Halo always had a better single player than any COD game.

that is your opinion

I'm not talking about COD for the PC. I'm talking about consoles. Halo 2 revolutionized online gaming on consoles and there's no denying that.

"What did Halo ever copy from COD?"


Just like COD had regenerating health and limited amount of weapons to carry (2) because a certain other popular game did it.

Good for Halo for doing those things you listed, but that doesn't change that they're messing with the Halo formula to do the popular thing....the Call of Duty thing.

I hope they copy good ideas, the reproduction/building off of good ideas into new work is called progress and improvement. COD4 had a lot of great gameplay ideas, which has resulted in improved FPS games. The problem is when people try and make the same game.

If people had to entirely reinvent the wheel every time they made something, we'd wouldn't have any of the technological/medical/etc. advancements.

Everything is built on what came before, if people didn't copy Id's idea with Doom, we wouldn't have any FPS games besides Doom.

Yeah, I think they're taking some bits off a COD too. Doesn't matter to me though. As long as the game is good.

I'm looking very much forward to the new details on Halo 4. From the looks of it 343 have taken care of business so far. Very happy for the return of Master Chief as the main character once again. Its been a good long time. I'm sure the perks will add a great amount of depth and strategy to the gameplay. As long as they are not over done like in a few other games. I can always trust Halo to deliver online and off. So I'm sure this game will be AAA quality.

It would be nice if the new world returns the series to the mysterious mood and feel of Halo CE.

I pray for the return of 4 player online co-op and fire fight as well.

Rated E For Everyone

If they want it to be a competitive game, I say leave perks out.
