Don't be hating. The ones who only care about shooting the living s**t out of other people are few and far in between, most still care about the storyline, the multiplayer component and some even go as far as to care about graphics. The Halo 3 was released in 2007, it is not surprising that the graphics are going to be pootang by now, in the industry where a year old game is considered to be graphically outdated, only few gems manage to survive the graphical onslaught and remain the top of the food chain.
Halo 1 and 2 stories were well done, the third not so. I have only purchased the third as I have liked first and second, your prejudice against the Xbox fanbase would indicate your ignorance on the matter. Well done and all for having an opinion, but it just seems a bit more biased in direction of Sony. I could go ahead and proclaim that all Sony owners are assholes, but I know that is untrue as I have a fair bit of well charactered and good opinionated ones and we often agreed on a thing or two or even had friendly banter.
The history is written by the Victors.
