SOx, you could say Halo is different because of what it contains. Its a fusion of past present, and future weaponry(as opposed to call of duty where you are in the past or the present). For example, you have modern guns and grenades, fragmentation grenades assault rifles firing plain old armour piercing bullets. You have a quasi modern/old sword, only its made of energy, and you have plasma weapons(basically slower lasers). So yes its different, the game is also much more intense than most shooters I've played. Just very amazing games overall.

WOW 8-o 've never played Halo before and I have never been a fan of videogames that aren't either racing or sport related. I rented this and played it on my new 26" HDTV and I loved it. Defientily going to be at the top of my Christmas list ;-D

I really don't understand why people enjoy this game. The characters move slow, everyone has access to the same weapons, it's just very bland. I think the only reason it's popular is because it's the best multiplayer FPS for consoles. It pales in comparison to multiplayer FPS's on the PC, such as Team Fortress Classic. TFC is a much faster paced game, has a variety of different classes you can choose from, and really does try to incorporate a "team" based element instead of just trying to have the best score or number of kills.

I agree with the fact that even though you're split into teams, it's not very team oriented. I still think it's a blast though. ;-D

Eh, I used to feel that way. I used to be a bigtime PC FPS guy (played Tribes 2 for around 3-4 years). Gears of War really got me back into the console FPS scene (probably my 2nd favorite game of all time behind Tribes). That said, I hated the Halo 3 beta and the game when it was first released. But I gave it more time, and I'm having a TON of fun with it now. Since you move so slowly and since there's really no escape tactics in the game (as opposed to Tribes/Gears where if you found yourself in a bad spot you actually had a chance of escaping) the game can be REALLY frustrating when you start and are just getting beat up on. Once you learn the maps and the weapon/vehicle locations to help you start dishing out as much punishment as you're taking it's actually a lot of fun, and the extra stuff (matchmaking, theater, etc) is brilliant.

The real draw for me though is being able to play the games on xbox live. I can't even begin to describe how much easier this has made my life. On the PC it was either no one on the team is talking (no mic's or only 1 or 2 people with them) or planning ahead with some friends to rent and get on a teamspeak server so you could at least talk to each other, though of course there won't be any talking to the rest of the team. Even playing with those friends was a huge ordeal that involved going down your IM list and asking everyone if they were playing something (and knocking them out of their game if they were), then figuring out which server they were in, etc.

On Live, I just hop on and can easily look at where my buddies are, and then with two clicks of a button I'm in the game with them, chatting away on our mics that nearly everyone in the game has.

It took me a while to adjust to the controller after using the KB/mouse for first person shooters all these years, but after I made the adjustment it's been some of the best gaming of my life.

Heck, I bet if you search back in this section a year and a half or so you can find me ripping on how stupid console FPS games (Halo in particular) were. Sufficed to say I've changed my mind, heh.

I'd be up for some Cafe Team Slayer, but CoD4 would be much better. ;-D

I finally got my brig, but yeah if you guys want to play I'm up for it. I have COD4 also but don't play it that much.

I've always had fun with the halo series but don't know if I'll ever get my 50, took what felt like a month and a half chilling at 44. So now it's just about having fun without feeling any stress of trying to gain anymore ranks, if it happens it happens. But as far as the console v. PC, I never really got into playing PC games, I tried them but I've always just felt more comfortable with the console.
