Well, someone had to be the first. Just an FYI SeriousDelta, most people here don't care about consoles or the games on them. It's largely a PC community here.

I've always loved the Halo games, but haven't been as interested in them since Bungie is no longer at the helm. I'm glad there's going to be a Halo 4, but I'll have to see some pretty good stuff from 343 Industries before I become too invested in it.

Halo Anniversary does look nice. It seemed way too early to me for a remake, but the graphics upgrade is actually pretty significant. I think the coolest thing about it is the button that lets you instantly switch back and forth between the original game and the remake.

I played Halo 1 on the PC not long ago and the game was... not bad, but disappointing.

- Story and the soundtrack that everybody praised were nothing special. SS1 has way better soundtrack. Even Voyager Elite Force has better story IMO.
- Weapons were not very fun to use.
- The enemy variety is ridiculously limited.
- This game probably has some of the worst level design I have seen. I've spent hours in copy-paste corridors with copy-paste enemy encounters, and after that had to spend another hour or two revisiting the places that I've already been to (or were those different places just copy-pasted, hm...). Some levels at the beginning of game were pretty nice though.

Physics and vehicular combat were pretty good.
Maybe my problem was that I expected too much because everybody praised this game so much.

(Do note that I mostly play old games, so I am not watching this game from 2011 gamers perspective.)

I've had a boatload of fun with the Bungie-made Halo titles. But I'm not sure what to think of Halo 4 now that Bungie doesn't want to work on Halo anymore. Also, I'm not too keen on buying the exact same game again, no matter how much shinier it is. Because honestly, the gameplay runs on the EXACT same engine, as you can switch back to the old engine with one click. Actually, that feature is pretty impressive, but still not worth spending $40 on.

I'm still sticking to the idea that it's a bit too early for a game like this to be remade. People brought up the Serious Sam HD excuse when I said it originally but I still think that it's not 'really' the same thing. >_>

It's not that I don't care at all about consoles, it's that I don't have one. I'd love to play Demon Soul / God of War / Gears of War, heck I'd even give Halo a chance, but I don't really see myself getting a console until the next generation is out...

Nope, doesn't do it for me. I want to see actual gameplay footage before I judge.

Halo 4 should never be made. Master Chief's endeavors came to a good conclusion with 3 and frankly the gameplay doesn't change-up/progress enough to warrant all these new games.
Besides, when the lead project designer resigns with a statement that he "got bored" working on the project, you know there's bad news.

The ending of Halo 3 was perfect. I agree that it probably would have been better to leave Master Chief there. I'm interested to see where they take the story, though.

I actually finished Halo 2 Vista not too long ago. I loved Halo 2, and it's infinitely better with improved PC graphics, resolution, and not to mention no annoying pop-in. Plus I hooked up a 360 controller to get the full Halo experience. Super!

My battle tactic in Halo has always consisted of charging the enemy head-on and then smacking them with my gun, repeatedly, as fast as possible. I then retreat, heal up, and go for the next round.

You can only stand or lie in an iron maiden.

There's a band that call themselves that, why can't I do the same for my sitting apparatus? I painted "iron maiden" on it, so therefore it is.

Wow, I didn't know that Halo 4 wasn't being made by Bungie. Bummer. I just recently seen that Halo 4 was being made and was hoping to get it.

I put off so long playing Halo 3 because I was so pissed that MS took over Bungie and made the Halo series X-box exclusive and didn't port it to the PC, screwing us PC gamers over. I was so mad about it, I absolutely refused to buy an X-box. My wife knew I wanted to play it though and went against my better judgement and bought me an X-Box last Christmas along with Halo Reach.
Well anyway, been having fun playing it, took me awhile to get used to using my thumb to control things instead of a mouse and keyboard.

I thought back then, that Reach was supposed to be a sequel to 3, so I went and bought H3 and played it back then, so afterward put off Reach while I had many other games to play that she bought me and that I bought. Also, played Alan Wake that came with the X-box, then played many other games, Mass Effect 2, StarCraft 2, Bioshock 2, Fallout NV, etc. and just got around to playing Reach a few weeks ago. It was a breath of fresh air to play a game with some nice color in it after weeks of Fallout with all the drab color.

My only complaint about the Halo games is that they are too short. Since they are linear and you play by being rushed headlong into the game, and the games aren't really made for a lot of exploring, it takes no time at all to go through them. Played Reach, then replayed it again (because it was fun), in less than two weeks, and that is just when I had an hour here and there in my off time.
Did like it though, and was a nice prequel to the story. Until I played it, I thought Cortana was an AI construct made by the humans, so I guess I didn't know a lot of the backstory.

Anyhow, I heard a while back that Bungie was going to make a new Marathon game. I sure hope so. The Marathon series of games is still one of my favorites. Marathon 2: Durandal, is one of my favorite of all times. I hope that Bungie makes it, and that another company doesn't come back and make it and screw it up. Marathon had a really cool, and very long storyline behind it.

AS

Eh? Cortana is a clone of the brain of Dr. Halsey, so she's undoubtedly a human constructed AI.

And I agree pretty much with what you have said about the games. I'm not really sure what to expect from Halo 4, seeing as it's not Bungie-made. But if Bungie were to make a new Marathon game... well, I would almost cry.
