I was thinking about buying Guitar Hero for months. But in the end that money was spent to guitar gear. wink.gif It's a lot of fun when you can get better scores than your friends... and if it makes anyone get intrested playing for real, then that's just great!
On the other hand, anyone who really thinks GH as an "musical instrument" should be beheaded...

I don't really hate any game (atleast I can't think of any right now) but it really bugs me when certain type of games are released for wrong platforms. FPS on a console, played with a gamepad? It's not fps, it's b***sh*t. tongue.gif

Oooh, I want to add one.

Shadowrun.

This game is impossible to play against PC gamers which they try to get you to do. You'll never be as accurate with dual thumbsticks as you are with KBM. Ever.

Any other FPS that pits console against PC.

Well if you look at one game as a waste of time, then you're looking at them all as a waste of time. Most, if not all games, are just time-killers.

QUOTE (Goliath @ Jan 22 2008, 02:58 AM) *
If you're a old school computer KB/M FPS addict, the halo series is not that impressive. Halo 1 was somewhat of a breakthrough for bringing regenerative health to the mainstream. Halo 2 was revolutionary for being largely responsible for the proliferation of internet console gaming. No other game prior had a matchmaking/lobby system of that kind and it has set the bar for how finding games online for consoles should be. Halo 3 was an attempt to restore gameplay to being "balanced". It didn't really work out, BUT the saved film/screenshot picture capability is truly innovative. Also, having a map editor that you can manipulate the objects on the maps is pretty great.

Regardless on your opinion of the game, the technical achievements of the Halo series can't be overlooked, and like it or not, even if the gameplay was pretty run of the mill by your definition(although it is debatable they were the first big name to introduce the "golden tripod" of weapons, melee, and grenades where you could melee on the fly with any weapon and throw a grenade on the fly without switching to them) the impact of it's gameplay is felt in virtually every single modern shooter.

Also, the storyline of the single player is really where the game really shines. It's a space opera, for sure, but the "Ghost in the Shell" protagonist really helps you connect with the main character since you can never see his face. The themes at work in the game are truly epic and the story is as shallow or deep as you care to make it be. The story is MUCH deeper than it appears to be on the surface.

Vehicle combat. No other console shooter had a vehicle combat system as balanced and viable as H:CE. Now you see vehicle combat in just about every game, and usually not as well implemented as Halo's.

I think the Halo series gets a bad rap from PC FPS elitists and folks who think it is fashionable to disagree with the mainstream. Halo's impact is unquestionable. You might not like the game, but there's no denying that the game has molded the future of console FPS.

This is all said coming from someone who refuses to play H2/H3 online because the community has ruined the game. That, and the multiplayer balance of H1 and H2 is completely nonexistant and there is only ONE way you can play the game if you want to be competitive (pistol or BR). Love it or hate it, there's no denying it's importance to the console FPS genre.


And that nicely sums up why I don't like console FPS's. They haven't done anything that PC fps games hadn't done at least a few years before, and the controls are never as good. The impact of halo might be unquestionable, but just because it's influential doesn't even mean its good. I do think its at least okay, but not anything special. It may have revolutionized consoles, but meanwhile life in pc gaming went on pretty much untouched.

I can't recall any FPS shooters (PC or otherwise) that had on the fly grenades and melee before Halo, which adds a cool dynamic to the game.

Runescape, i played that when i was 12-13 years old and now I just can't believe why I played that game or what I found good about it huh.gif

Also I dislike WoW, not the game itself but one 'friend' of mine' quit playing guitar and hanging out with us just to play WoW, since then I hate it that people leave things for playing a computer game blink.gif So sad...

Haha well yeah, it's not that bad, but in my opinion if you like condition zero you might as well just play CS 1.6, because the game play and maps aren't that different. Condition Zero just got stupid new design on all the stuff tongue.gif

If you're talking about the single player stuff though, I like that too! biggrin.gif

I agree. But the problem with WoW(and probably other mmorpg's) is that you won't get anywhere unless you spend alot of time on it. Well, that was the old days, now everyone can log in and become filled with epix in no time.

Not time killers, but rather "Experience Treadmills". subtle difference.

I used to play Dark Age of Camelot before WoW came out, and 50 was the highest level achievable, and that's just when the game started being "fun". I can't play those MMORPGs anymore. Huge waste of time IMO.

I used to play City of Heroes before I went to WoW, but the game stops being fun after only a short while.

I'm with the Uncreator. Really the only WW2 game that I've ever liked is Call of Duty 1 & 2. I wish that the guys who make Medal of Honor would just give it a rest tongue.gif
