Re: Why do so many people like Halo?
Because they find the game fun?
But, eh, so many "smart" replies about people liking it because "they are dumb" or shit like that.
Personally, I think that Halo: Combat Evolved was a great game, just like Gears of War and CoD 4: Modern Warfare.
These three games spawned, unfortunately, sequel after sequel after sequel, and, well, they influenced the market... A LOT.
I'd say in a bad way, especially in the case of "Modern Military Shooters".
The Halo series, though, is arguably better than the CoD series at least. I don't know almost anything about Halo 4, besides that it has a new developer.
I'm still surprised that it is out... Already. Time flies.
As for the IGN Review: I've grown to hate numerical reviews. IGN is known for being pretty bad; not really Gamespot level bad, but still. 9.8? Really?
Just give it 10 out of 10 then.
Really, really enjoyed this week's Superstars. Honestly, the fans who are too snobbish to watch it, dismissing it as 'Jobberstars' really miss out.
