So what do you think? 1 or 2? I got my views but i'd like to hear someone elses first.

of those two halo 2 is better. i thought the controls in halo 1 were less smooth. but if you want my real opinion they lack considerably compared to CS:S or BF2

BF2 is definitely my favorite FPS at the moment. It's a great game. But Halo 2 was better than Halo 1 for game play.

Both Halo's have extremely good graphics but they aren't challenging enough. The sniper rifle doesn't even move around, even a litte. How realistic is a sniper with dead-set aim?

Halo 2 was better, however I liked the fun Halo 1 offered in CTF. They ruined it in halo 2 by taking out respawn growth, which basically killed the point of getting frags and using strat in CTF.

I love both of them, but personally I like the physics in Halo 2 better. As far as fps'er are concerned my favorite would have to be FarCry. If you can beat this game on easy without cheats you are pretty much a badass.

Halo 2 is so much better, i tried to play halo, after playing halo one, it sucked so bad, the only thing i missed about halo original was the ctf strategy involved...and sidewinder...that was my favorite level.

When that came out, I tried it once, and owned everyone at it and never tried it again because I thought it was too easy ... I personally prefer BF... Anyone played Call of Duty 2 yet? I know my friend just got it the other day, but he hasn't told me about it yet :(

Halo tho, i thought, was the more refined due 2 the fluidity of movement and aiming, classic levels and objectives, good storyline but other than that i think halo 2 is quicker paced than its predecessor.

Halo 2 where to begin....
From the first cutscene, i thought owwwwwwwww, showing the covernant armada circling the destroyed halo, then when the game kicks in your practicaly shoved in the deep end again with new toys like my personal favorite the guass warthog and being able to use turrets, the energy sword, the fuel rod cannon, sentinel beams etc...

But then i thought hang on wtf have the done! My beloved shotgun sucks now, what happened to the amount of ammo you could carry? And worset of all, the grenade arch, omg, WHAT THE HELL DID THEY DO?!?! In number 1, you could sail grenades through the air to seriously distant targets, and probably hit them with a plasma grenade and wipe em out. In number 2, your best bet to get someone with a sticky, is to run right up to your target, throw at point blank, and run! So disappointing...

I cant play either anymore, with halo, i cant just forget that in halo you cant board enemy vehicles or take an elites sword and in number 2, lack of ammo, the shamefull grenades arch and the crap A.I. of enemys makes me sake my head in disappointment.

I just hope number 3 makes it all better, but microsoft and bungie might screw it up anyway so... :(

This is gonna sound really geekish, but I don't give two shits what you think.

Master Chief's MJOLNIR battlesuit moves on what his thought's are. He doesn't really move it himself, his thoughts of what needs to be shot control it. Being a very well trained his thought's while viewing through the scope are to keep it as still as possible then shoot.
Read "The Fall of Reach" and "First Strike".

I really don't like either, but I guess I'd have to pick Halo 1, since the story was better.

Halo for PC > Halo for XBox, 1 or 2.
Superior controls, graphics, and multiplayer mode. End of story.

FPS games were always meant to be played on PCs, they play like shit on consoles. :thumbsdn:

Preach it!


What was the first FPS game ever? What system did it come out for? Which system has the largest library of FPS games? Which system offers the highest level of customization and expandability to FPS games? Which system offers the best graphics tweaking and control customization?
Consoles lose. PC wins.

so, are you saying that any game genre that originated on a console doesn't belong on a pc?

And your point is? Keyboards have more buttons than a controller does, and are capable of anything a controller is AND more. Bottom line, FPS games were designer for PCs, and playing them on a controller is about the most asinine way of playing one. PCs have better graphics, better controls and just feel more natural.

Halo was a pretty shitty game to start with, but I can't imagine playing any FPS on anything but a computer with a keyboard and mouse.

I guess I could see how someone fairly new to FPS games would prefer a console though, but for those of us who have been playing them for years there is only one way to play - with a keyboard and mouse.
so, are you saying that any game genre that originated on a console doesn't belong on a pc?
Well, most games would certainly look better on a PC with a good video card, but I guess that's neither here nor there right now. There are some types of games that I would prefer to play on a console, like side scrollers or '3d adventure games' like Crash Bandacoot or such, but even then, a USB controller works the same as a console controller, and you still get the benefits of better graphics and higher resolutions. FPS games just feel weird on a console; the controls are all dicked up and limiting, and TVs force you into playing at 640x480. I'd much rather play an FPS on my monitor at high resolution. At least something around 1600x1200.

Anyway, that's just my :twocents:.
