MS continues to create new IP's such as Too Human, BioShock, Mass Effect, Gears etc.

All this stuff does not belong to MS so what of the list they create?



Yes, highly overrated, but still a good game.



Wii Code 8761-5941-4718-0078 

As others have no doubt said, it is decent for a console shooter but doesn't stand up well to PC shooters (the real platform for fps's.)

Wow, people on a Wii dominated forum hating on Halo - couldn't see that coming. Actually, the first time I played it I thought it was overrated. Then I played online and was hooked! It's the best multiplayer game out there, so long as you don't get asswipes to play with.

Sorry, but PC gaming has spoiled quite a few of us.  Halo marks a collective yawn from PC gamers who have much better alternatives and have had them for a long time.  



One point where Halo shines is the online co-op with integrated voice chat. It's probably the only weakness of PC FPS games but Left4Dead should fix that little problem up nicely.

Sorry they fund game devs to create new IP's instead of spending a vast amount of resources promoting sequels etc.



Halo is very overrated,

and people saying Half-life is worst than halo.

WtF!1111 lol jk


Half-life to me is the greatest FPS everr..

CS:S is the greatest Online game everr

I see alot of kids, that only play Halo Online and never played the Campaign mode.

Which to me is the most Important thing in a video game is the Campaign mode..
which Halo lacks(mostly in 2, and 3)

Half-life story>Halo Story


And In halo Online, its automatic aim, in Counterstrike its not...so it takes more skill in CSS =P





The single player campaign is waaaaaaaay over rated imo but the multiplayer is so awesome.
