No, because when Halo 3 was in it's prime it was the FPS/the only game worth playing online pretty much. Nowadays, theres CoD, Battlefield, Assassins Creed, and all the other single player games that have come out in the past month.

how absolutely wrong you are.


On 360, what other game did Halo 3 compete with?
Modern Warfare, which came out a month later

Your mistake is thinking a poll would prove anything.


It would prove more than screaming out that the majority hate the game when it's only you and a couple of you're friends.


Now it's me that is screaming that the majority hates the game? How did you come to that conclusion, or are you just saying "you" as a reference to a group of people, and not me specifically.

The real question is why are the halo boards the worst boards on all of gamefaqs? Oh that's right tryhard trolls if its so terrible fire why are you on this board?

If the sample size is too small or you collect the data in a bad time frame/location you'll get incorrect data. For true evidence you'd have to validate the hypothesis over different settings, time and place.


Example: If we do a poll now, it would probably turn out that most people don't mind H4, because it's been a while since the release, a portion those that don't like it have stopped playing while what remains is a bigger proportion that have accepted the game for what it is.


Actually, the majority of the people liked it during the release, the day after, and the week after. The results were the same in other times and location. Like Waypoint, IGN, Gamefaqs, and others.

The flip-side is that any poll here wouldn't be statistically valid, because the sample would be a self-selected niche demographic, not a randomly selected subset of the overall population.

To put it another way, people hanging out on online forums are far more likely to piss and whine about things than actually admit they like them. Especially people who have played way too much Halo in the past and are now kind of incapable of actually accepting new things.

Any poll here would almost certainly skew more negative than a poll targeting the entire player-base would, so it would be kind of worthless when trying to "prove" how a majority of people feel about the game anyway.
