Anyonewho says otherwise either has notplayed UT and Quake and CS, or they just sucked at it and tried to make themselves feel better by "pwning" in Halo CE, then tried to convince others it actually took skill.
Ignorant people are funny.
Your wrong in so many different ways I can't help but chuckle.
You seem liek those skilless noobs who just couldn't handle UT and Quake. I am sorry, but absolutely everything you have to do in Halo you have to do in UT and Quake, plus have it twice as fast, plus have twice as much mobility. That right there is the definition of a superior skill-based game. I am sorry you weren't cut out for the best, no teveryone else is, at least you have Halo to keep you company.
I'm replying late due to a combination of finals and torn acl that has kept me from getting on but your statement shows how bad you must be at fps games.
UT, Quake, Counter Strike and Halo all take skill. If they didn't then you would see random teams winning every single MLG event. What you wouldn't see are dynasties and teams that are complete powerhouses and can go entire tournaments without dropping a single game. Each game has specific areas that require skill, just cause you move faster does not equal higher skill. In fact that statement shows exactly how much of a scrub you are at first person shooters.
If you think Halo takes no skill why don't you grab a few buddies and go to an MLG nationals and win yourself a hundred thousand dollars? You don't because your bad at the game and your so ignorant that you blame it on the game itself. You don't understand that in Halo the depth of playing is far more than simply jumping and timing power ups.
F1, Nascar and rally racing are completely different forms of racing, but if you say that rally racing takes less skill because you don't drive as fast as F1 races then you show your ignorance to any true racing fan. Well your doing the same thing with shooters. Go against any pro Halo team and you will get destroyed so bad you would never dare to say Halo takes no skill. Heck play my team and I'll make you eat your words.
The best part is I've seen professional pc shooters that admit that Halo takes skill because their smart enough to understand that the depth a shooter takes goes beyond what can be seen by an elitist amateur who can't compete but likes to act like he can.
All you did was show that you clearly don't have the capacity to understand what makes a game take skill and in doing so have invalidated anything you ever say about skill in video games. Theres a reason that the biggest game circuit in America if not the world is MLG and the flagship title is Halo 3. Show up to an MLG tournament and get top 30, heck get top 60 and you have a point. Until then keep your baseless and laughable opinions to yourself.
