I recently played both games, i think they're both similar and both great games. Kind of old, but I'm bored, so all you gamers out there, which one do you think is better? I vote half-life because it changed the way i thought about storytelling in games. But then again, Halo 2 had kick-ass multiplayer, so I don't know.

Halo 2 if you're playing multiplayer, Half life for the campaign

Half-Life. Definitely. Halo is really fun multiplayer, but Half-Life 2's storyline is so much better and just generally more fun. Plus you need damn Vista to run Halo 2.

Don't you understand the importance of correct spelling and grammar? It's the online symbol of maturity. And you as sure as hell don't have that.

I stopped reading there.

Please, elaborate on this point.

IMO, they are completely different styles of FPSs, and, IMO, can't be properly compared on a fair basis.

Half-Life 2 > Halo 2

Halo 3 > Half-Life 2

Therefore, Halo 3 > Half-Life 2 > Halo 2

As entitled to your opinion as you are, I disagree with it.

Both FPS, both sci-fi, both on X-box (i played h-l 2 on xbox)
I think they're similar

is that a rule?


Used to be. I haven't see it inforced for quite some time. It usually applies to the band vs band threads that seem to crop up. Besides, if anything, this belongs in the Only Gaming Thread anyway.

I wasn't aware that such a thread existed. Thank you for informing me.

Ehh. Still, though.

Like I said, it's all my opinion, but HL2 is more of a puzzle-shooter. A majority of the game is spent solving puzzles, or figuring your way out of a situation, and stuff like that.

Halo 2 is more of a linear, straightforward "blow shit up" shooter.


Not that Halo 2 doesn't require thought, but it's an overall different experience.


I'm not downing either game, also. I love both, HL2 more than Halo 2, but I still love both.
