I never made it through Shenmue 2. Finished the first one in three sittings but couldn't get into 2, no idea why.

As for the poll, Halo 3 easily. Gears looks like it might be cool, but I'm not sure why it has quite so much hype. Halo on the other hand, I'm another on into the whole mythology. I'm unsure how I feel about the second, to be honest I don't even really remember what happened. I think I got a little confused with the whole giant plant/squid/thing business. I'll have to play through it again some time.

Remember though, with Halo 1, most of the story stuff was communicated outside of the game, without the websites and the books and etc etc, the story would seem pretty much ignorable.

I'd say since ive been on Xbox live Rainbow Six 3 was the best online game so far Halo 2 running in a close 2nd, The way halo 2 was set up for multiplayer was superb i just hope microsoft don't play about with this too much as the ubisoft guys did with rainbow six lockdown & f*ck up a perfectly good game :-/ Oh yer and hope they sort out the online glitching that was anoying at times..

what we do know is that they could make 10 new maps, and keep the rest of halo 2 the same and i would spend 300 dollars on it without blinking.

they would have to really try to fuck up halo 3 for it to suck, GOW on the other hand is a whole new beast....

i am willing to place a wager with anyone that GOW sells less than half the copies of H3

While I am looking forward to GOW, I am even more excited about Halo 3. And I'm sure many others agree. Halo 2 still has more playtime on Xbox Live than any other game, and it is bound to carry over to Halo 3.

It is the conclusion to this story arc.

Actually, it was that exact statement that made me believe they were leaving their options open for a prequel. And even if they don't make one, all they said was that story arc is over. That's definitely leaving it wide open for future Halo games. :D

ModoX

Well, presumably the prequel would have to follow the Fall of Reach book, being as that told the story from the conception of the Spartan II project, the 'napping of the kids (including our John-117) and subsequent training, altering and battles.

But there's still loads we don't know, because it's not certain that 117 is the only Spartan left, and what happened with the first Spartan project if these guys were number 2?

And I'd guess that the end of the Covenant war won't be the end of Halo. The Halo rings are still about (not all of them, obviously), I doubt the Covenant will be wiped out completely, an alliance of the Elite half of the civil war with Earth seems likely. There's plenty to do.

Man, I love the Halo story.

Note: This is all off the top of my head so I may be remembering one or two things incorrectly.

Sgt Hobo
07-20-2006, 05:39 PM
even though there are still halo rings left, now they all can only be activated from "the arc"- which is most certainly earth, so traveling to other halos would probably be useless........ unless you wanted to meet more monitors:p

Halo ........Is.............The ...............Most............Overrated.......... game.....Ever

I think Halo is very deserving of the praise that it gets. No other game has even come close to bringing people together to game than Halo and Halo 2. Halo practically brought gaming to a crowd that otherwise was less than interested in games. Not to mention it is one of the only games that was able to account for a portion of Xbox sales. I know plenty of people who bought an Xbox soley based off Halo.

So yea, its easy to say that Halo is the most overrated game ever because its so popular, but it definitely deserves the praise because very few games have been able to achieve what it has. Just a thought.

I'd agree with all of that. Plus the first game was pretty ground-breaking. How many games (not even just FPS') now have a replenishing shield system, or two weapon limit; how many FPS' now have vehicles? I'm not saying Halo was necessarily the very first game ever to do any of these things, but I'd say it's responsible for them becoming more common.

Gears of War doesn't have that deep of a multiplayer as even Halo 2. It's 4on4 CS type play, where once you're hit, you're dead for the entire match. I don't know about you, but I like the chance to get accustomed to a game online and I can't do that if I get shot early on and have to wait the remainder of the match to get another chance. GOW will have no vehicles, no different game modes other than TDM (and possibly DM). They didn't really have multiplayer in mind when they first created it. It was built for Singleplayer and Co-op primarily.

Halo 3 will be more like Halo 2 and have everything. Perfect multi-player, and a engrossing campaign. I'm looking forward to having online co-op in Halo 3. I'm just glad I don't have to choose between these two, because if I had to, I know I'd have little to look forward to playing in 2006.

I just have one little thing to say: in GoW when you get hit enough you don't die, you fall to the ground where an enemy can curbstomp you(essentially kill you) or one of your team members can revive you. This makes it a fun risk to either kill an enemy and leave yourself in the open, or save an ally leaving yourself unprotected.
