If Halo 4 was a full fledged PC game, would you buy it?

I've probably played them in all in some way or another. Never been that great so it hasn't been a staple in my library. BUT, when you have 3 good friends that play, it's a blast. I'll only get it if my brother & friends pick it up. They don't have gaming PCs, so I always buy Multiplayer stuff on 360.

Halo was fun when I was in HS but now that I'm an adult with a job and I have a gaming PC to entertain myself with I can see the severe limitations of the game itself. The FOV is awful, the MP is small due to so few players being on each server, the controls are too constrictive due to being based off of a control scheme and DLC packs are terrible no matter what.

There are simply better games to be played these days if you're a PC gamer.


Well, yea, that's just not your style of gaming anymore. That's not to say it's a bad series, however.

I never said it was a bad series. If I were asked to play it at a friend house I would but it's not a game I really see myself going nuts over.

No.

I have played the first Halo on PC, and Halo 3 on 360. Didn't like either of them.

Well, your opinion is that it's great, and a lot of other opinions are that it's not. Both are valid. Compared with other FPS titles on consoles, Halo is indeed a great series. However, when you compare it with titles PC gamers have been used to and played for ages, it's at best nothing special, and at worst, generic, formulaic, and tired. Yes, I know we have plenty of generic, formulaic shooters on PC too, but that's irrelevant.

No, I already bought it on the 360, why would I buy it again?

Yes, I would get rid of the 360 version and buy it again on PC.

If it was on sale I would but I generally don't buy any game at full price on PC since most go on 50-75% off sale within months of release (days in some cases got sleeping dogs 50% a day after release). I played and loved halo 2 back in the day so for the right price if Halo 4 came to PC I'd give it a shot.

Id be happy with a straight port.


Straight port would mean 30 fps right? You'd be happy with that?


Anyways, I voted no, I don't really have any interest in the series.

Probably. I had lots of fun with Halo 1 and 2, although they've gotten pretty bad since then.

I haven't bought the last two, but I played other people's copies. I may start buying them again if they come to PC.

It's not something I would ever pay full price for but I would probably pick it up a year or two down the road after it's been discounted and on sale.

I've been contemplating buying a(nother) 360 for this and Forza... so if it was on PC I'd buy it.

I liked Halo Reach.
