GS gives BO2 an 8.0 and Halo 4 a 9.0

Yeah dude, H4 has nothing new. The ordinance system, weapon spawns, create a class option, customization...
Just a bunch of haters man

What's the point of this topic? Your arguments against halo are completely false, there's a lot of new stuff. I don't see why you have to bash halo, it's still a good game, I play both of these games and see no reason why I should bash one of them.

I'm entirely sure, your entirely sure, what I'm suggesting

This. COD's not bad or anything... but the newest Halo has reinvigorated the franchise with the things mentioned above. Thus it gets a better score.

Personal bias? A review conducted by a guy that has absolutely no experience in game design and is giving a purely subjective, uninformed (aside from playing the game) opinion on a released game?
Color me ****ing shocked.
_huh posted...Seems like GS is getting paid alot of money to stay biased towards Halo above all others.
Yeah, that's sort of the way it's always been. Review sites can get paid in a large variety of ways too. It doesn't always have to be a large suitcase full of money like something taken out of a 1940s film noir. Get with the times. Reviewers and review sites get early access to games, lots of swag, certain exclusive rights, ad support and the list goes on.
As for BO2's 8/10 score (as opposed to a 9 or 9.5), one would think that Treyarch or Activision would be upset with this. Not really. Their games get so many pre-orders based on name alone that they couldn't care less what rating they get. Reviews are purely for convincing gamers to buy, or at least try out, a game. If a large percentage of gamers have already done that, this is just icing on the cake. In fact, it's icing that won't be able to compete with sales in DLC later on throughout the next year.

Halo 4 is worlds ahead of CoD in every aspect.
In what aspect? Running and gunning, bunny hoping noobness?
CoD might be called that too but to less extent. Good positioning matters in COD, Halo is brainless fest.
BO2 at least introduces some new ideas into the franchise, whether we agree with them or not. The game probably got the score it deserves, not on par with the greats, not a terrible game, but a good game with replayability. It does have most of the same elements used in previous games, just rehashed into a different setting, but nothing too innovative.
Halo 4 has an entire new race of enemies, I like both games I don't understand why these two games have such hostile fanboys, it's almost as if it's against the law to like both of them.
Activision is known for milking the hell out of COD and Guitar Hero, that's why they're one of the most hated game publishers along with EA. CODs a great game but you have to admit it's a huge cash grab the way they release a new one every year along with about $60 of dlc.
Don't get me wrong I like COD it's a great series, I just think Activision cares more about your money than they do about the game itself. That's why I chose Halo, It's also hard to get hyped up for an fps that you know is consistently released year after year.

You could make the same argument for either game being fresh or stale. Your opinion is which is more or less fresh or stale probably depends on your personal opinion - which you enjoy more. Understand this, move on from this thread, move on with your lives.
