I play Halo when I want a competitive, skill based game. I play cod when I want to test my reaction speed.

Never was...even when it originally released in 2001 the PC did FPS games better.


Quake, UT, CS, Tribes yo.


I've been a PC gamer my whole life and put a lot of hours into every game you mentioned. Halo is/was way better than all of them.


Can't say I agree.

Halo and counter strike. Halo revolutionized regenerating health, varied gametypes and deep story. It's a game years ahead of its time. The fact this many years later so many still wanna play halo 2 proves it


I'll give you the other points but deep story?

Really?

Halo had a deep story?

What game(s) have you been playing?

My ultimate favourite FPS will forever be the original Half-Life

For sheer enjoyment duke 3d does it for me. Doom was and is the king. Hell wolfenstien started the whole thing. A fps will forever be better on pc and counterstrike is/was the epitome of competitive fps. Some people must be to young to remember. Sure halo would cause a ton of lan parties but cs slaughtered it. I remember in college you were either playing gunbound or cs. Lol

Same

Although there are massive differences between each other for those games that are listed.

There's no FPS better than it in my eyes.


Gamefaqs voters don't need a crystal ball to predict how you'll always vote. I'm going to have to agree with #41.

Killzone 2 took the throne but then killzone 3 dropped it. Killzone SF tried to get it back but didnt try hard enough

its just laying on the ground for someone to pick it up right now

now when you say "King of FPS" I assume you mean if someone was to think of a FPS that would be the one to come to mind. In this instance Halo was the king from CE until Halo 3. Halo 3 came out around the time of COD4. COD4. put Cod in the spotlight but I don't think it dethroned Halo. I think MW2 is when COD became the king of FPS and took the title away from Halo. Although I still believe COD holds the title I think it will be taken away soon as people are getting tired of the series

I said the same thing. I played 1-3, absolutely uninteresting.
Made a similar comment.
I was told you need to read the lore, look it up online etc.
Which I never did, just replied it should already be in the game I shouldn't need to look up lore.

Things like The Last of Us get ragged on for a great story, with some good multiplayer.
Yet this series gets praised for good MP and yet has hardly any story to the point you need to look up lore.

smh try not to wonder about it, least most games have a good story added in the campaign and we don't need to research it.
