Exactly! And the 12 year olds (or people who act like 12 years by camping your corpse and rubbing their jockstraps on your corpse, etc.) made it worse. I despise a game that only has replayability value because of the shitty multiplayer and its even shittier multiplayer community. Games like CoD, Battlefield, and Halo all have the worst damn communities ever; there's no damn respect.

No. Nope. Never. Especially not Halo...

I was going to tell you to try getting your rank past 45 and then rolling TS, because pretty much everyone past a 45 has good sportsmanship. Not that there's much bad sportsmanship in between 20 and 45, it's just that people above 45 generally have mics and will say "Good game" after every game.

I've actually never played Halo.

And then I saw this.

Quote by vicarious46
Halo's never been my jig, the combat style and community never suited me. And it's only kinda fun to play with friends, but after a game or two I get really bored of it


So I'm not really interested

I'll stick to my BF3, maybe COD:BO2

EDIT:^What he just said, I think Halo attracts some of the worst people next to COD. Joining a lobby and listening to some 17 yr old confused teen shout obscenities at a 10 yr old (who is equally obnoxious) because that's apparently cool is not my style

Mute everyone in Big Team, Rumble Pit, Multi-team and Social Slayer. Pretty much all the Social Playlists except for Team Mythic and Skirmish, which have a way higher rate of players above 50. Usually about half of the people you come up against are decent to good and have played for a while.

If you don't want to get trash talked in Ranked, then stay away from Team Doubles, (Pretty much the CoD playlist of Halo; Full of campers, trash talkers, nade spammers, rocket*****s etc etc) MLG below level 40 (So much smack talk) and Team SWAT on any level (Because that's where most bad 50s get their 50s from)

Quote by vicarious46
But Halo is far worse combat wise; having to unload a whole clip and then hit a guy with my buttstock just to kill him is retarded. And being forced to zoom out when some one shoots you bugs me a lot.

Now, there's your problem right there. There's not a single weapon I can think of that would take more than a whole clip to kill someone when used properly. That means no trying to spray someone from across the map with your AR, no trying to use your shotgun as a sniper (It isn't CoD or Halo 1, it only works in close range) and don't try using your sniper as a super powered BR unless you're actually good with it.

And as to the zooming out thing; If you're using a BR against someone, you shouldn't be zooming in unless they're actually a very far distance away. You just have to lead them right, and they won't stand a chance. If you're sniping and someone descopes you from a medium distance, you're at a disadvantage. The best thing to do is get around a corner and either; wait a few seconds for their grenade to come around the corner, then pop out and headshot them out of the blast radius as they throw the second one, or if you've run around the corner of a large wall and you can get around the other side; either fake to the right and pop back out on the side you came in and shoot the guy in the back (Giving you the advantage of having shield even if you miss the headshot), or go around the obstacle and take another shot at him.
Now I wouldn't do any of these things most of the time, because when I play Halo I play with friends so I can call these things out. I'd just back away from the corner, lay some nades down on it and scope head height on where they should run out. If they don't run out and I got some backup then I'll let my team-mate made the entrance while I get around ready for the push. (Great thing about Halo, there's always a way to get from A to B on all the main choke points) If they run for my team-mate, they run into the made. If they wait too long, then I either de-shield them and they run straight for my team-mate, or they get cleaned up by me. (Assuming I miss the headshot because their back is turned)

Halo's all about Teamwork, knowing the maps and consistent aiming. CoD is about which routes you take, reflexes, and precise aiming. They both take skill and it's difficult to say one is objectively harder, but imo Halo is a much more balanced game in which skill is a higher factor than it is in CoD.

I've never played an online shooter with a bunch've of random people. I've played online across a LAN network in my computer maintenance class at school. Halo has brought the most pleasure to all of us. Get together a group of people that you know and are considered actual gamers and most of them will favor Halo over COD. I know this is completely biased and sometimes probably not true but this is just an opinion.

Also, Halo's single player aspect has pleased me more than any other rival FPS.

Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach. The only thing to do know is buy a Xbox 360 again.

Holy shit when did you get back?!

But yeah, I realize if you use the weapons correctly you won't have to spam bullets and then butt people. Back when I played a lot (Halo 3) though situations like I mentioned happened to me, where me and another guy would both try and kill each other with the AR and then butt each other when we ran out of ammo, or I'd be trying to shoot (zoomed) someone with the BR and some other guy would come and f_ck me up mid-zoom. Maybe it was because i sucked at shooters back then, but after 3 I played a little of Reach when my friend brought it over couple times and it didn't really appeal to me. Guess it was just personal opinion


And yeah, with the community thing I did end up muting people or just turn it off when I joined big games. The community didn't really turn me off to the game, because it was just some of the people playing it that sucked not the game itself.

And agreed, comparing the games saying which one requires more 'skill' is kind of dumb because they're very different approaches to the shooter genre.

I guess it really comes down to, I don't think the game sucks by any means but it just isn't my type of shooter

So...basically, assuming I bought it, I'd have to endure tons of rudeasses before I got to people who told me "good game". Yeah...no...

I'd rather play solitaire, and I despise that game.

All I care about is the story because it's cheesy/gay as fuck but I've been playing Halo since I was like 10 (not online of course) and I've really grown emotionally attached to Master Cheif he's the only one who GETS me, you know.

I thought 3 should've probably been the last game, and Reach definitely should have been the last game. I've been very unimpressed with literally every contribution 343i has made to the series: gamewise, storywise, everything. Not got high hopes for this, but I might buy it if it looks good after release.

Also, I shouldn't worry about this... but on the comments for one of the trailers, I saw the following:

"Man, this looks like a ripoff of Metroid."
"How? Halo has been around longer than Metroid."

I like CoD, Halo, and Battlefield.

Is that allowed? I feel like everyone who plays video games has to be a gigantic douche-bag fanboy who can't like more then one series.


I like all 3 as well.

I'm pumped for the campaign, but as for the multiplayer... Ehh I feel they're trying to make it too similar to CoD.

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.

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.
