HAHAHAH! OMG, totally awesome. I don't get the attention Halo gets. Its a VERY lame shooter, nothing special--gee, kill everything that moves. boring.

Microsoft is all about VISUALS. Visuals with no content. no depth...

Hell, Thief 1 blows the hell out of Halo 3. And what the HELL is the deal with developers these days making games that last less than TEN HOURS?!? My god. Eye of the Beholder 1 was on 2 HD Floppies, and took 15+ hours to beat. Goldbox games took 50 hours to beat and were on 5 1/2 floppies... lol.

How far they have fallen... I hold the faith that there are a few game companies that want to make a good game, with CONTENT and not just visuals. At the end of the day, it's the story you'll remember, not the graphics.

Whats sad is we're seeing shooters upon shooter clones being released, with some 'gimmick' to make their game 'unique', but in the end, its a 'kill everything that moves' design, with some pretty cut scenes. dull. We can do better than this. We deserve better than this.

My friend, he pre purchased the Halo 3 'deluxe ultra gold head thing' edition.. over $100.00. WTF?!?!?!?!?!?! And all these corporate reviews like IGN, PC Gamer and such give them 10 out of 10?? Wow... Makes me wonder what constitutes a 10.

We need to stop dumbing games down, or at least make a genre with something more.. I miss the days of Thief 1 and 2..
I think that's why we like Roleplaying games.. It makes us think, not just 'kill all that moves'.

Just my 2 coppers

I think alot of the reviewers are in bed with the developers. I mean, you gotta keep the economy going....

Yep, think, and then kill everything that turns my cursor into a sword...and some things that don't, just because.

Seriously though, I gave up on shooters right around the time BG came out. Of course, I haven't really missed much since then, just revamped versions of the same games.

BG definitely ended any love I had for FPS as well.

I still have a lot of love for shooters... but not console shooters. Halo3 is arguably the best console shooter out there, but compared to PC shooters it has a hard time rating mediocre. Part of the problem is the poor control from the console controller, and part of it is that PC shooter are more innovative... there's really nothing new in H3 that hasn't been done on the pc for years.

I think Halo (the original) is still the most over-rated game of all time. The only reason it was the success that it was is because the console clowns didn't know any better.

I still play Deus Ex. You are still, most of the time, expected to kill everything that makes the crosshair turn red, but you don't have to if you don't want to. Plus you get a few roleplaying elements, like experience points. All the other FPSs I've played since it have seemed somehow really shallow and simple.
