It's rather funny because I agree with all three statements of his. Blops2 is the worst, and I think Minecraft for Xbox 360 is flippin' fantastic. Wish it could be tinkered with like the PC version though.

The gaming industry is whack, dude. Less popular games like Minecraft (even though it is indeed popular) are 10x better then the 'big hit' games like Blops2, EA's Sports titles, and all those shitty games.

Sorry if I offend any Halo players, but the series is dead. It was a trilogy for a reason. Halo 2,3 are the only games I found great to play (never played the first). Instead of Microsoft pushing for Halo time and time again, they should try and create a fresh-new game that actually didn't get boring after the first week of playing. Unless Microsoft are saving these "new IP's" for the Next-Gen console, since the 360 is almost at the end of it's cycle, then I would understand. I'm not a PSN player, but it's the truth IMO

Can't say I'm surprised.

Just no.

Because multiplayer activity is declining you think the series is "dead"? I've seen 10 year old CoD fanboys make a better statement than that... Halo 4 had 1 of the better single player campaigns in recent years compared to other FPS's and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Oh...you're one of those who buy Halo for the Multiplayer and don't pay attention to the story when playing Campaign...

Preach it, Tsaako. I've made this argument before and stand by it: Halo 4 (or any Halo for that matter) is one of the only, if not the only, FPS that has a deep and enticing story.

IMO Microsoft is (or has already) evolved this franchise into nothing but a cash cow. I can't possibly imagine why else they'd shit on its core demographic and try to market it to any and all FPS gamers. The skill gap is nearly non-existent; it's a pick-up and play kind of game, now.

edit: seriously though.. tell me you don't get excited when you see this picture. this is what i'm talkin' about. last man standing on sandtrap.

Oh sorry let me clarify, the Halo series is dead to me. I'm sure plenty of others in this world share the same view no matter what statement is made.

Nope I buy Halo's for the Multiplayer and the Campaign actually. The only one I haven't completed is 4 because I haven't had the time.

Gotta disagree with you here, brudda. 343 made Halo 4 to continue the story, not to expand (I guess a better word would be 'continue' or 'stay-true-to') the Multiplayer. I agree that the core competitve Multiplayer is gone, but they won't let the integrity of the story slip way just because their MP fanbase (including me) is declining.

Apologies then. But you should get to the Campaign, it's great.

No doubt that the story is still great and fulfilling. But I believe that to Microsoft, however, the multiplayer is much more important and that is why they've made the changes that they have -- that's why I feel that to them, not 343i, it's just a cash cow.

Ahh, okay in those terms I understand you better. Yeah, I'm guessing that 343 is trying hard to stay true to the roots of what Halo is supposed to be, but Microsoft wants them to implement these generic gameplay mechanics, for lack of a better word, in order to appeal to a larger crown, thus displeasing the true fans, all for the sake of making more and more mula. Halo, Gears, and Forza are Microsoft's only exclusives. Sony has 15+, no wonder Microsoft wants more and more. Competition man.

Yeah Fable is dead to me unless the next game restores my faith. Fable 3 is ok but I absolutely refuse to touch Fable: Kindergarden Edition.

Halo is now off of the MLG circuit for the first time in 10 years since MLG started.

Sony has Last of Us and God of War. Those two games alone make Microsoft exclusives suck! Especially considering I hate racing games, never got into Fable, and Gears of War is trash IMO.

Alan Wake and Left4Dead are classics though, no doubt.

Unhappy Quit in time.

I quit Halo just in time, I can't believe Halo 4 isn't gonna be on MLG circuit, that's so shocking.

Shocking indeed that they removed it though Virgin Mobile is to blame for it.

Well in my opinion it was terrible. Reach's campaign destroyed the lore but at least it was fun to play. The only good thing I can say about Halo 4's campaign is that the cutscenes look well done. But pretty pictures can only go so far.
