Since when was Halo, or any other video game for that fact, realistic? <(?_?)>

Its more realistic then RF or PD are by having a character whos a normal human that can carry 20 some weapons =P Even the master chief has his limits on amounts of weapons he'd be able to successfully carry without being slowed down.

Sorry, but I've played games with a mouse and keyboard, and I prefer a controller with an analog stick. FAR easier to aim.

Agreed, I much prefer controller to mouse. I can play decently with either but I'd almost always take controller if I had a choice.

@Cmdr-A: That's one feature of Halo I particularly like, makes picking weapons a little more thoughtful and switching between them better IMO. More instinctive than having a dozen to switch through. Although alot of games work that way now, I stand by my comment :p

Halo's been over-rated since halo 2. Simply because the first was good. and it was good! But it was nothing new. Perfect Dark and Goldeneye had the same gameplay elements! It still is nothing new and the story has always been shit.

The porn's nice though ;D

Half-Life is better, both as series and stand-alone games. The quality of gameplay, game world and characters is remarkable. Not to mention that some levels are truly... well, let me compare it to a symphony.

One of them is Nova Prospekt. Arguably, prisons aren't overused locations in gaming, especially not old-supermax-turned-alien-containment-center prisons.

Anyways, Prospekt is an example of storytelling through sheer power of the environments. Ever noticed how the architecture of the prison seems strangely similiar to the one of the Combine? How Combine technology and items don't seem out of place? How perfectly the old prison accomodates the Depot facility?

The entire sequence, from the beginning to the end, is a symphony finally showing the sheer scale of the Combine oppression and inhuman precision. The old prison segments are merely the first tacts in the symphony of Nova Prospekt - a story of cruelty, genocide and unspeakable evil.

Nothing can compare on this level. Except for the Shalebridge Cradle, but that's a story of a different kind of evil.

There's only one realistic FPS on the market: Operation: Flashpoint.

You can aim quicker with an analog stick (with more accuracy) than trying to constantly move a mouse while the enemies are firing at you.
how can you aim quicker with a tiny analog nub? all you can decide is how fast to move; you cannot aim for a specific physical point like you can with a mouse. if you are hitting physical limits with your mouse, your sensitivity is too low

also "constantly move a mouse" what? since when do you not have to constantly move an analog stick?

Amazing how some people think that simply because another person prefers a controller with an analog stick over a mouse and keyboard that "they suck at gaming hard"...
yes

yeah bro I always recover from bullets to the chest in about seven seconds

realism is a fucking stupid target for fpses and it's gradually ruining the genre

Yeah it is overated... but not as overated as GTA 4
actually I was pleasantly surprised by gta4

Ghost Recon. A demolitions guy took 27 rounds while standing around before successfully dying =D

Quoted for truth. Tom Clancy gave up realisim with RainbowSix: Vegas. That game was complete garbage compared to Raven Sheild and Athena Sword.

Don't forget the original games, R6, R6 Rogue Spear...

I did. I hate the controller, the supreme precision of a remapable keyboard and a mouse is unbeatable.

As for liking, there isn't really much to discuss, since cross-platform games don't have servers that allow players from PCs and consoles to mesh together. Understandable, mouse users would absolutely rape anyone with a controller.*

* - confirmed by my friend, DarkLegacy. Challenged by a console guy (quite adept at it) to a game of Halo, the first plugged in a controler, Legacy used a mouse and keyboard. The end result was a devastating victory for Legacy.

I am a Halo fan and have been playing it since the Xbox first came out. But it has gotten quite out of hand. It's not THAT great. I mean I wanted Halo 3 as much as the next guy.. Who is a fan but Call of Duty 4 owns the hell out of it.

Really? I found CoD4 to be way more exciting at first, but I couldn't stand it after a week. It gets so repetetive after short amount of time. I'll admit I had more fun with it the first time through and the campaign was longer and better done, but I'm still playing halo 3 these days.

EDIT: BTW. I'm a ninja now! Hooray?

People who go on about Mouse-aim being superior piss me off. It's easy to aim with both. That said, I can't imagine life without a PC. You guys can keep your crappy GTAIV, I'd like to see S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ever work on console.

I may be mistaking since I've tried neither on both, but I believe Unreal Tournament 3 and Shadowrun both have cross-platform servers.

Metroid Prime 3 certainly put a lot of FPS to shame. Needs some fixing up still, I will admit, but it does work amazingly well. XD

I really disliked Metriod Prime 3. I know people that say it's great, but personally I thought it had uncomfortable controls and was unexciting.

They do? I can rarely find any players on UT3 servers, so I'm not too enlightened there... I base it on other titles, such as TF2 and CoD4, which don't have mixed servers. And I can see why.

To be honest I actually enjoy the halo singleplayer. Its a nice change from the serious tactical shooters that litter the market. Though I absolutely loathe the multiplayer. But yes it is obscenely overrated.
 
im glad to see such a response but honestly i never said my opinion... well i do believe that the halo series is drastically overrated, however, i did enjoy the game. the single player was...relatively unique throughout all three games and the multiplayer was fun. however the thing that really killed the series was trying to play halo 2. that is what killed it for me, i got the game late, like on a 360 because my friends had it then whenever i tried to go online, one of two things would happen. either A) i would get my ass handed to me so fast i shat out of my hand or B) some little 5 year old kid wouldnt shut the fuck up the entire game and just yell into the microphone, which made me want to punch his little prepubesent ass so hard he crapped out his mouth for the next 3 months. but 3 was good, nothing to extravagent

I really think its overrated. Its like people would take a bullet just to save their copy of Halo 3. o_o I've looked at the game but it didn't really impress me. It looked like a shooter. It played like a shooter. IT WAS A JUST SHOOTER. Everyone was like talking about as if were a ticket to video game paradise!

That reminds me of the guy who got shot when he bought a PS3 on the launch day. x.x
