I'm not sure that it was inventive. Rather, it just improved massively on all the other FPS games out there. It didn't introduce many brand new ideas. Looking back on it though, neither the GC or the PS2 had anything that could get close to Halo in that department. It was lightyears ahead.


It was one of the first games that blended RPG and FPS and did it well. Also, it had a good story for its time.

It came out 9 years ago, keep in mind.

I'm curious as to what ways you think CE blended RPG to FPS. It's unadultered FPS.

I was talking about Deus Ex, not Halo CE.

Ahh I see. Well, as we're on the subject of great FPSs, it is pretty much fact that Goldeneye on the N64 was the greatest game of all time.

Widely held opinion, not fact

It's great, though. Only problem is that it's starting to show its age, but it doesn't matter in the overall quality of it.

In this era of next gen gaming, the fact it can still (kind of) hold its own is a feat in itself.

I was so disappointed when they decided not to put it on arcade.

I know how to fly a dumpster in Halo 3. No joke, swear on my grave.
