Re: Why is Halo so popular?
Because its Halo.
that's not a real reason, i could create a game 10 times better.
No... You can't. And even if you created a game, 10 times better? really? considering most reviews of the game fell between 9.5 and 10 that would mean "your game" would be a 95 to a 100.... on a scale from 1 - 10. Nice try.

Actually when playing Halo I noticed that it had stolen and awful lot of lines from the Aliens film. Not only that but the soldiers and their Sarge looked almost identical.
Yeah I was going to mention that. Its also like, the EXACT same sarge from Predator. Complete with the little cap. And to counter post WV's post: I honestly dont think Halo revolutionized much of anything. It just took a game like Golden eye 007, kept the mechanics and gameplay and tossed in a few aliens. If you look at Halo, almost nothing in the game hasn't already been done before.
This sums up my opinion pretty well. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/ â€¦ n/8-Halo-3
First off, don't use somebody else's review of a game to "sum up your opinion" because it makes it look like you took all of your ideas from them, which you sort of did with the "sarge from predator" thing. Plus he never played multiplayer... which is stupid because why buy Halo for the single player? It's like buying milk if you're lactose intollerant.
And to counter-post your counter-post Halo did revolutionize the FPS. Do you really think that they stole things from Golden Eye?!? Yeah, it was a fun game like... a decade ago. Halo is a sci-fi FPS with graphics that overshadowed most games of the time. The controls, multiplayer (especially in halo 2), and the AI were leaps and bounds past ordinary. 007 had infinite streams of enemies who threw themselves at you with their blocky heads while you tried to find your mark with the C-buttons and moved/ looked around with the analog stick. The multiplayer was like fighting a war in the days of muskets. You stopp face to face with your opponent and fired wildly until one of you fell. YES!! I can see the connections to halo now...
I am not a Halo Fanatic as I have not even played the game in quite some time, but I enjoy it when playing with friends or whenever I am bored. Halo 3 is not a "godly" or "perfect" game... but It's good, simple, and fun. And that is how you sell games. I prefer my Unreal Tournament 3 at the moment anyway, much more action.
