THe gaming thread was too crowded to do this, so here:

I am convinced that Bungie copied Blizzard's game of Star Craft for their Halo Storyline. Here's why:

In the beginning, humans (Terran and UNSC) explore space only to come across an extremely sophisticated alien race (Protoss and Covenant). You fight them until you eventually team up with some aliens who abandoned their race because their leaders were too deeply obsessed with a religious cause.
In the meantime, there is an organism that is slowly traveling the universe with the intent of controling all of it (Flood and Zerg). This organism infests the bodies of the previous species, and is controlled by one central Flood/Zerg: The Overmind, or as Halo fans know it as, The Gravemind.


Thats all I can be asked to type so far!
That, my friends, is WAAAAAY to close to be individual ideas. Bungie seems to have single-handedly ripped off one of the best strategy games ever made, and I think it will get worse with Halo Wars.

So, anyone else find this strange?
Agree/Disagree?
GO!

YES! Thank God someone noticed that!

Edit: Also, I'm gonna assume 100% of the Starcraft-negative responses will have never played the game, so at least read the synopsis on wikipedia

Halo was just an amalgamation of lots of good sci-fi ideas.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Yea I noticed it too, but Master Chief makes it all worth it. Plus Halo Wars will keep me busy until Starcraft II.

That's not quite the story of Starcraft.

The Terrans were not exploring space, Earth rounded up all their convicts and blasted them into space so they didn't have to deal with them.

Australia II if you like.

basic storyline's the same, but there are differences. It's like in music, everyone "shares" ideas. Love halo, never played starcraft. Too young?

Also halo is oversimplifed crap which is just run of the mill mediocrity and is to blame for fps's in the modern era in general being so ****.

They openly admitted that the first one was very Alien-inspired, and I believe that two voice actors in Halo played near identical roles in one of the Alien films.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

Halo is actually an EXTREMELY simple game if you really think into it...

I mean, the basic formula is shoot, kill, move on. Sure, some enemies are harder and take more skill to overcome, but that's all you do, all the way through it. There's almost no other strategy involved.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

That's why I play real time strategy games. Halo can (and has) been mastered by 6-year-olds. Starcraft requires IMMENSE co-ordination, reflexes, ability to maintain your cool when getting zealot rushed etc etc

I'm pretty sure it was written after. The first book was Fall of Reach, right? I think it was meant as a prelude to the first game.
