I get why people bag on CoD but why Halo?

Halo games come out rarely, have lengthy campaigns, deep multiplayer, are highly polished, and are just generally cream of the crop shooters. I'm not sure where people get off acting like Halo represents everything that's wrong with modern gaming.

It seems like in the past 2 years Halo has gotten less flack. Especially since 343 made a stellar campaign for Halo 4, with a rich backstory.

People still hate on it because it's popular, and it's a FPS...but less people.

It's cool to hate on anything with mass appeal.

"Have lengthy campaigns"

While I do love Halo, that simply isn't true for Halo 4. You could beat it in 4-5 hours.

Am I the only who thought Halo 4's campaign was disappointing?

It's because after the last few COD games, Halo looks like the game of the year as far a quality goes. COD is going down hill and Halo is somehow staying afloat. IMO they're both mediocre games though and have both lost their touch.

Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.

Same reason people hate on COD, it's a game they simply do not like. That's it, no real reason, just stupid people with too much time on their hands.
