I like Halo. It's fun to play in a group of friends all in the same room.

The first game was horrible, the 2nd one was much much better, and I have not played the 3rd one (I did play the demo though.) As a series I like it, but the first game is really really bad.

Because if there's anything a market completely over-saturated with FPS games needs, it's another FPS.

I'm sure I'll love the game as far as single player/co-op goes, but I'm hesitant on the multiplayer. I really miss Halo 3 multiplayer and especially miss Halo 2. I can't really stand Reach MP although I'm cool with the gameplay in single player. Really don't like the specializations and the reticle bloom in MP.

As far as people bitching about the community, honestly Halo 2/3 are where most of my XBL friends came from. Never made any friends on COD, only a couple over the past couple Battlefield games. It seems to me most people who play Halo seriously (once you get above level 40 or so) are usually friendly and actually want to work as a team. It doesn't help that it seemed that like 80% of Halo players used mics when I was playing and it's rare to even be on a squad in BF with someone with a mic.

At least they aren't remaking the same game every year

I have nothing against COD, but I can't play it anymore since MW2. Too much of it, too quick. COD is still huge but I think it will go the same way as Guitar Hero eventually unless they do something to change that path.

The first game had clunky combat because it was Bioware's first non-turn based game. It did a lot of things wrong (dat UI), but the story was good. Not original at all, but good. I wouldn't call it horrible. I had a blast playing when it came out, but it's really dated now, and replays are not very fun.

Mass Effect 1 was the best Mass Effect. And it still is. Finally actually played through ME3 this past weekend although I got it at launch. Now that is a game with clunky combat.

Mass Effect 1 was better in lots of things. Exploration, NPC interaction, customization, overall plot, etc. Combat was not one of those things. Sure, the "spacebar does everything" in ME3 was a pretty stupid and lazy move on Bioware's part, but overall the combat improved a lot.

EDIT:
To get this thread back on the topic of Halo 4, I don't know why the hell Microsoft doesn't realize that they have the Xbox AND PC gaming market in their pocket. I can't believe they're not doing PC releases for a series as huge as Halo.

I am really disappointed they decided to continue milking Halo after 3

Not really excited for this, and I love Halo.

Then again, I said the same about Reach and that was pretty cool.

I liked the combat in the first one best. All my friends hate me because when ME2 came I said it was worse than ME1

The story in the first one is good. It's the combat and glitches that made it horrible, the 2 times I tried playing it I gave up because of the glitches.

The video makes me a bit more excited about it but it doesn't even come close to how excited I am for The Last of Us. I would buy a PS3 just to play this game.

I think Halo gets old fast... I'm not a huge video games fanatic however.

I remember getting the first Halo for pc when I was ten or eleven, I thought it was tons of fun then.

But I would say better fps games would be Counterstrike 1.6 and Source, Quake III (a bit ridiculous but fun for quick thrills), Half Life (never played HL2 but maybe when Im bored in the future...), and System Shock II (most haunting and atmospheric game I've played, and it's got a bit blocky graphics and isn't even a "horror" game hahaha).

Because they're bell ends. I might (*might*) consider buying Halo4 if it was on PC. And I was really ****ing bored. And my life was ruined. And the world was ending. So, like a 0.000001% chance if it was PC. Which is better than the absolute zero chance I'd buy it if it was only on Xbox360.

Because Bungie had an exclusivity deal with Microsoft to produce X amount of Halo games for the 360. 343 Industries is making Halo 4 for 360 exclusively because, as they see it, they've lost their PC Halo fan base back when Halo 3 was exclusively Xbox, and because 343 consists mostly of former Bungie employees that know/love the 360 better.
