Personally, I would go with Halo. I did grow up with it and it has been with me along time. But what about you?

Halo. To each his own but I feel like Call of Duty really needs to work on their games. The multi-player is the same thing over and over again just with new guns, new maps, and a new HUD.

See whats funny is that even though you are describing what you don't like in Call of Duty you are actually describing what Halo is as well. The game has pretty much all the same weapons that every Halo had except they add a few more here and there maybe take out a few and add Dual Wielding and there you have it, another Halo loadout. And I never played Halo for the multiplayer it was just the same as Half-life except you can jump higher. Same fundamentals some of the same weapons same fact that only a couple weapons actually killed in one shot.

What I thought was funny about Halo is that I always considered the story line quite the same as Half-life. You a man fighting through aliens and zombie types for one goal. The only difference is that Half-life made the bold move as making the Main character part of the Science team and not some invincible super force

I agree that Masterchief is not god so that kind of put a dent into halo's storytelling.

Halo 3- Everybody starts out with the same loadout. Guns and other pick ups are found around the map.

Halo Reach- Instead of pick ups, there are now armor abilities available at spawn, and there are a few preset loadouts for each gametype changing starting weapons. Power weapons can still be found around map.

Halo 4- Loadouts are now completely custom, and now have added specific boosts you can apply to the loadout. Players gather points through playing during a match to get power weapons. Instead of lying around, sometimes power weapons will randomly drop into the map.

The main core of Halo multiplayer has changed more than you think.

You a man fighting through aliens and zombie types for one goal.


That is an incredibly vague overview of the stories. Halo's story is on a much larger scale than Half Life. It's more of a sci-fi epic while Half Life is an adventure.

Well then scale must not be everything, because Half-Life's plot is way more compelling and engrossing. It's an adventure, but still quite suspenseful and full of surprises. I look at Halo and it seems like just one more amongst many other sci-fi universes. Besides, Half-Life has one unquestionable advantage over Halo, story-wise, and that's excellent marrying of gameplay and plot. There's no cutscenes interrupting gameplay, no moments where you aren't in control of the situation.

Well, that's my opinion. Neither series is that groundbreaking in storytelling terms, to be honest.

How did this become Half-Life vs. Halo?

@d_dude

Your just proving my point in saying that Halo keeps adding very little content every time it makes a new game

Call of Duty 1-World at War I specify this because after the creation of modern warfare there was basicly backing to make fake crap with no amount of realism or factual Information.Just wanna give a shout out to my homeboys Soap Vassili and Master Cheif. Man yall MoFos aint never gonna die.

Who cares about realism and facts? Games are escapist in nature. There's nothing better about a game that's realistic, it can be totally unreal as long as it's fun.

I like my guns and my gunshot wounds realistic thanks but thats just me besides when I first starting playing call of Duty I appreciated it for it's realism It's what seperated it from the crowd you know.If you shoot a guy in the face he dies end of story get what I'm sayin man.

In CoD a sniper bullet that would leave a hole in your body the size of a fist won't kill you, but a jab with a knife will. Just because people die from a few shots, that doesn't make the game realistic.

Well then it's not about realism, it's about how shooting people in the face is fun. Which is totally fine. But let's be honest here, if you shot someone in the face as far back as GoldenEye 007 for the N64, they died. This isn't separating CoD from anyone, every shooter does it.
And there's nothing wrong with that, it makes the games fun.

You know what's kind of laughable, though? People waving the flag of "realism" when they defend CoD, when all you have to do to regenerate wounds is take a little squat behind a bit of concrete. It's one of the least realistic health mechanics I've seen in an FPS.

In CoD a sniper bullet that would leave a hole in your body the size of a fist won't kill you, but a jab with a knife will. Just because people die from a few shots, that doesn't make the game realistic.

And there's nothing wrong with that if it's fun. Game balance should trump realism every time, that's just game design 101.

People can survive faceshots. It's not realistic, because a head wound just shows a hole, when it should be like a smashed watermelon. Playing CoD for its realism (horrid plots, superhuman feats, regenerating health, no gun jamming, unrealistic grenade explosions etc) is a joke.

That doesn't mean it's not fun, but I prefer Halo, because it was one of the first proper FPS I played.
