Yes, they where all better then HALO. I am sorry, But HALO (1 & 2) some of the worst FPS games, ever. Sure their MP might be fun, but they are not great. Q1 and Duke3D MP was much more fun to me. Granted they did not have the larger environments like HALO, but big deal....they are 10 years old. HALO SP ranks as some of the worst games of all time.
Okay, but you still haven't described how they were better. And really, going by your personal description, it sounded like it was merely because you played those first. Had you come along later and played Halo instead of those, your opinion would probably be different.
I came up along those same line of games, too, but I'm not going to delude myself into thinking that games that by merely coming out first or sooner and while excellent for their time, are indeed better.
And this quote, particularly, is an example of why I argue people get too caught up in the past:
Granted they did not have the larger environments like HALO, but big deal....they are 10 years old. HALO SP ranks as some of the worst games of all time.
So? Multiplay and singleplayer modes have always been fundamentally different from one another. And if you tell me you played Quake 1/2 for the single player mode, you are probably lying. You play System Shock and and Deus Ex for their SP modes, you play Q1/2 SP just to shoot shit. If you enjoyed them, then cool, but don't kid yourself into elevating to being that great.
But it really does state something when a game is considers one of the best console games ever and the best MP ever on a console and it is 100% total and utter shite on a PC
Not really. If anything, it just illustrates the differences between PC and console gaming. Consider if Goldeneye, a console
game released in 1997 for the N64, is widely considered one of the best MP games of all time, had been ported to the PC. The translation might not have gone as well.
Saying HALO sucks because it's crap on the PC is just plain ignorant in considering the main platform for which it was released. And using the PC as the guiding standard by which a great game is judged is...stupid. I made the comment once that PC gaming has become too elitist for its own good. The lack of innovation, lack of numerous quality titles, and the stagnation has really made me wonder if the years of Quake 1/2 and Duke 3d and etc really were better just for nothing else there was the vibrant mod scene and new stuff being released all the times.
Yeah, so Enahs, sorry 'bro, but your comments rather seem like you want the good 'ole days to come back, and I don't blame that, but times change, dude. The classics were good back in the day, and are still good, but not the best anymore.This comment was edited on Dec 5, 00:13.
