Halo is just very generic. Its funny how reviewers will bash other fps games for being generic yet act like halo is the most original thing ever. For console fps I had preferred the timesplitters series as far as pure fun. Its not even bungie's best or most original game. I liked myth and marathon better.

Still, the feature set is very robust with lots of multiplayer and online options. For better or worse it did start console fps games as being considered a big thing. It did recreate a fair amount of what pc fps fans had been enjoying for years.

Actually, the genre became popular with Goldeneye 007, in August 25, 1997, so your a little off. Now if your talking about starting console online fps games being a big thing, then you are right.

@SSBF.... actually the genre became popular with Wolfenstein and Doom for PC..... Goldeneye 64 was the one that kicked off the FPS Multiplayer. FPS game have been popular Way before Aug 2, 1997. I know because I was playing the crap out of Doom way before then.

I think it's good, but it is a little overrated.

People say it's the best game series....nah.

The original plans for a Halo movie fell through. THey could revive the idea, but I don't know how likely that is.

Yes! I absolutely agree. i wouldn't normally have anything particular against halo but those damn fanboys!!!!! Everytime I hear some babble being uttered about how awesome halo is and how it's so amazing, I wanna PUKE!! News flash: It ain't that great! this one game is a very large reason for my scorn towards xbox fanboys.

Not quite... part of Peter Jackson's Halo project (i.e. first Halo movie project) became Halo 3: ODST... it started as an expansion pack for Halo 3 (that's why it was trademarked with the Halo 3 name), and the project grew rapidly and became a stand-alone game....

Its yes and no for me. I love the story mode but I can not stand the vs. mode even if I play with people as bad as myself. I find its multiplayer vs. mode and xbox like multiplayer to be severely over rated, people I have gone to school or worked with have stated they went straight to live without playing the story. I still prefer my Animal Crossing. XP

I've never been a fan of FPS games and I didn't find anything special with the Halo series. I actually found it pretty repetitive. It just seemed like every other FPS out there. It baffles me that people find this the best FPS out there. The fanboys are also annoying (saying that Halo is the best series ever, hah) My little brother's friends all say that Halo ODST will be the best game this year and saying it has the best graphics (which I of course disagree) An older kid came over and we played mostly Halo 3 ALL AFTERNOON :( After two hours, I got bored. So yeah, I think it's overratted. I mean...ITS GOT ITS OWN ANIME FOR GOSH SAKES!!!

Halo IS overrated.
But, you can say that to just about any video game series to be fair...
Though... I really, really, really, really, REALLY hate Halo... It's just stupid to me...
I can say that Sonic & Final Fantasy & Megaman are overrated as well...
So really, you can honestly say any game series is.

OVERRATEDNESS. we mario fans must counter this

You can't say Mario isn't overrated, because it is 100% true. Overrated does not mean that it isn't fun though.

New Super Maio Brothers got perfect ratings and was NOT a perfect game. It had the 2D feel to it but it was WAY too easy and the levels seemed very short. The three coins collecting was far too easy to find all of and the World Map was nowhere near as good as Super Mario World on SNES. NSMB should have been much more than it was but was hyped to be the best in the series and its not. Ill take the SMB and SMBW over NSMB anyday. Hype Overates just about all games.
