Sales or movie like premieres don't mean it's great.

Games like Half-Life 2, and even GoldenEye have sold more than Halo series. They have set the benchmark for genuinely good first-person shooters.

I can't wait to play Bioshock when I upgrade my graphics card.

That's what I do. Any gamer who has been exposed to the games/series I've mentioned (there's a ton of others), should know Halo is nothing revolutionary. I'm not saying it's bad at all, just not worthy of the absurd amount of hype and high praise it's getting.

Sales is all about promotion and hype.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was one of the best games of 2003, but it sold very poorly. The first sequel Warrior Within wasn't as good, but it sold 5x as much as Sands of Time.

If sales was an indicator of quality, then Titanic would be the best movie of all time, and Britney Spears would have the best album of the 90's. :lol:

Sales mean nothing. Some of the most criticically acclaimed games, like ICO, Grim Fandango, Indigo Prophecy, Pschnonauts, Beyond Good & Evil, Okami, etc to name a few, haven't sold as well as they should have.

Halo 3 is successful because of Microsoft's aggressive marketing of the franchise. They spent $10 million on tv promotions alone. Most games don't have that luxury.

You're calling Bioshock a pathetic cross between Doom 3 and Star Wars. Then Halo is a pathetic cross between Power Rangers and Teletubbies. Colourful characters hopping around in a valley, yes I can totally see the resemblence.

Hmm... I just looked at your BioShock achievements list... you haven't even gotten close to finishing the game, not even 40% (my estimate)... and also, my guess is (based on your progress) you'll be receiving the BAD ending to the game. Just a heads-up. ;)

(I have 860 achievement points, you have 260).

But yes, it's true... Halo 3 has more things... a multiplayer campaign, for one. If that's important to you, obviously you wouldn't care much for BioShock. To me, the story and gameplay is more important, and BioShock truly excels in both and creates a "new" kind of FPS that doesn't feel like any other I've played before (and I've played FPS-es all the way back to Wolfenstein 3D in early 90's).

Dark environment , similar to the You-won't-see-nothing-if-you-don't-use-Flashlight environment of DOOM 3. The Lightning strike from the hands is exactly like Force Lightning in Star Wars games ( Jedi Academy, etc. )

Your subjective judgement is very mispaced. Two similar gameplay elements doesn't make it a "pathetic" cross. If that was the case, Halo is pathetic in every sense for the things it imitates from many other shooters.

Doom 3 is not unique by any means. It used recorded voice messages scattered throughout the game just like System Shock, System Shock 2, Alien Verus Predator 2, etc. It has a story very similar to Half-Life (which HL tells better) and scare factor emulated from System Shock 2, which is also better than Doom 3. If you didn't know, Bioshock is made by the people who formerly developed the System Shock games. Doom 3's expansion Ressurection of Evil also copied Half-Life 2's gravity gun. Doom 3 makes an excessive use of darkness so it only made sense it had a flashlight, which also looks a lot like Half-Life's.

As for lightning in Bioshock, it is one of several elemental weapons in the game, designed specifically to work within the game's environment and context. Bioshock makes excellent use of water (as it's set in an underwater city), so the lightning can be used to kill multiple enemies by shocking them if they are in the water. Similarly, you can use fire if there is explosive material like fuel on the floor, or freezing your enemies first and then shattering them with your melee or projectile weapon. It's not what Bioshock has in similar to other games, but how intelligently it uses them. Halo's weapons are neither intelligent nor innovative.

So drawing such comparisons when Halo itself is barely unique is quite pathetic.



Erm.. Wot ? :confused:

So... you took one of the elements from the game and found similarity with Star Wars (although, I am pretty sure Star Wars didn't originate the idea of electric bolt from your hand).

Just so you know, that is just one of the "plasmids" (genetic modification tonics) you get in the game. There are several other plasmids, such as winter blast for freezing an opponent, incinerate for burning opponents/things/melting ice, using telekinesis (you can stop grenades thrown at you in mid air and throw them back at the enemy)... [yeah, compare it to the Force if you want, but I'm pretty sure Star Wars didn't come up with telekinesis first], insect swarm to send bees after an enemy, one for setting up a holographic decoy for your enemies to target, one for enraging an enemy to attack other enemies, one for making the security system in BioShock target opponents instead of you, one to create a mini cyclone below your opponents feet that launch them into the air, one for hypnotizing big daddies (the thing on the cover of the BioShock game case) to come protect you... and probably some more I didn't get myself.

And no, BioShock is not dark everywhere in the game... some places it's beautifully lit, some places it's not. It's at the bottom of the sea, you can't expect there to be bright sunshine there!

Halo is a craze in itself, there is no denying it. It is the heartbeat of XBOX. If PS3 has Virtual Figher and Final Fantasy, XBOX360 has Halo. Thats how the console war is set at the moment.

Whether we like it or not, Halo will stay for a long time. Its just insane amount of promotion from Microsoft; as well as hardcore XBOX guys are all Halo fans. :)

Personally, when I first saw Halo (in original XBOX) I wasn't too impressed. My FPS experience has always been on pc keyboard/mouse (Quake, Doom, Unreal etc); and always felt uncomfortable moving in 3D with gamepad. My brother is a Halo fan, and seeing him play made me realize its not a bad game at all.

My personal experience is that... if you want to be competitive, you NEED keyboard+mouse. Most single player modes of FPS games don't need you to have really good aim to finish the game... but playing against other people is a different story...

This is why the only multi-player FPS I play online is Counter-Strike / CS:Source on the PC... I need my gaming keyboard and mouse for it. Single player campaigns I could do with either gamepad or keybd+mouse. I think it also depends on the game as well... console FPS-es probably have larger hitboxes / auto-aim to make up for the lack of accuracy with gamepad. It's also possible to make keybd+mouse work with a 360... seen some videos of it... not sure what the difficulty of doing that is...

May be not VF. I think M$ is relying too much on Halo 3 to sell 360s. The game itself may be a huge success, but it is possible most people who would play Halo have bought the system already or waiting for it come out on PC. PS3's real system-sellers are Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 2, and of course FF XIII and Versus XIII, all of which are coming out next year. The 'war' hasn't started yet. It starts when God of War 3 is announced. :)

Since I'm not much enthusiastic about Xbox 360, I can't wait to get my hand on CRYSIS ... This is the most anticipated PC FPS this year .... with a new & revolutionary CRY engine....anyone played FAR CRY are gonna love this.

I'm gearing up with my Geforece 7950 GT to play this one..this is going to break even HALO 3 record for sure..
