I get why people bag on CoD but why Halo?

Because Halo deserves more respect than CoD
But Cod is more popular

So people hate on something that is more popular than it deserves to be.

This is true for all things

Halo 3 = 2007
Halo Wars = 2009
Halo 3: ODST = 2009
Halo: Reach = 2010
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary = 2011
Halo 4 = 2012

CoD4 = 2007
CoD: WaW = 2008
CoD: MW2 = 2009
CoD: Black Ops = 2010
CoD: MW3 = 2011
CoD: Black Ops 2 = 2012

Both have had six games in the past six years which is why, if they wanted to keep the series great they should have need after Halo 3, but money is a powerful thing. The same thing happened with the Assassin's Creed series.

Money > Legacy


An expansion, an RTS, and a rerelease of the original don't really count.

Expansion? Which one is that? Halo 3: ODST was a full game, but with Halo's 3 multiplayer, it was also sold for $60. An RTS counts, but I will give the Halo series that, at least they did something relatively different. A rerelease counts, don't know why it wouldn't.

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.


>shatters sales records every year

Look, it's in a decline!

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.


to be fair, some of us really didn't dig it as a series from the start. I won't lie, it is what made me switch from PS2 - Xbox, but really as a whole the series just wasn't for me. I won't say that it lacks this or lacks that, but it just simply wasn't for me.
