    So, do you like Halo as a series or not? If you like the entire Halo main series select "The entire main trilogy". If you only like one or more games select them accordingly. If you're a Halo nerd, select "Every freaking Halo game". Personally, I like the entire main trilogy. I didn't like Halo Wars.

    I only played the first game but I thought that was overrated. Fair enough it was a decent game but that's all it was.

    Very true it seems people love shooters with great graphics where u see nothing but a gun or hand on the
    screen.... rather corny i said reason is lets day those fps fanboys also play madden or nba live etc now
    if all they saw was a hand bouncing a ball or throwing a football they would b pissed... thats why i am
    happy ninty finally did metroid the other m the rightway metroid is not a fps shooter thats why i refused
    to play prime 123..... just plain wrong....

    I can play halo no problem but fps is not my thing....

    Too many people hate Halo because it's popular. It's honestly more annoying to see people bash Halo than to see them have orgies over it.

    I never really got into it but I'm not too fond. Just not my kind of FPS game.

    Halo 1 and 3. Yes, the halo series is overrated but they made FPS mainstream on consoles and fixed the controls.

    Plus, nothing beats Halo 3's multiplayer for super-happy-fun-times

    I am slowly getting into Halo 3 multiplayer but I do not care at all for the campaigns.

    EDIT: Any chance of having an option to vote only for the multiplayer?

    Mehh, I dunno.

    Halo is definitely popular. Like, "annoying" popular. And for a game that hasn't had much evolution in a long while, it's definitely getting a lot of praise for its countless new titles.

    They've gone overboard a bit, but it's still a solid formula...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Halo isn't bad, but as a franchise its a bit on the over-rated side. But I guess releasing 3 identical games that are nothing but glorified $50 map packs would do that to a franchise.

    I only once played Halo (3) at a games convention, I played it for hours and I really liked it, but the only thing I don't like about Halo - or better the thing I don't like about its fans - is that they're all a bunch of retarded 12 year old kiddos that think Halo is TEH BESTEST GAEM EVAR!!!11ONE1

    In short, Halo's a pretty cool game, but the people that play it just ruin it.

    The Halo games are obviously entertaining, otherwise people wouldn't play them, but unfortunately, there hasn't been much originality in the series since they revolutionized the online shooter market. They are most definitely overrated and have little to offer, as do most modern shooters, because each shooter is essentially the same game. One of my good freind was gloating about how the new Halo has a gun with more "polys" then the soldiers in Halo 3, Not something new or innovative, or even game changing, and yet that was his #1 gloating factor. Halo has "Jumped the Shark."

    I prefer Halo to any FPS online wise.
    Offline, not so much.

    Halo 3: ODST for me.

    play halo3 with my mates every monday when we catch up... custom game mode... 200% movement, KotH match and turn pink when in the circle... good fun.
    presumably, anyone who voted the last option either does not have a xbox/360 or really hates microsoft... amiright?
