All I want to know is why does that insult you guys?

I heard the Halo: Reach beta had more participants than any beta in console history. When you have that many people that want a game you make it, it's common sense, regardless of what game it is.

Everything else in the world is the same way. How long has Toyota been making the Corolla? Since 1966, that's almost 40 years! People know the name and like the product, Toyota would be monumentally idiotic to stop making it.

Game series' make big money because people want them. People like a long continuing storyline, it adds a lot to a game.

I couldn't agree with you more.

People want a new Halo game. They want another Zelda, a Mario, a COD. You can't really complain about the gaming industry giving the majority of people what they want. Imagine the uproar if they stopped making Final Fantasy games.

I'll admit, a little originality would be great, but to stop making sequels would probably kill the gaming industry.

Also, the car argument was completely valid. He wasn't comparing games to cars, he was just using it as an example of the power of brand names.

I couldn't care less for sequels, at least make them be worth your money... The CoD campaigns for example seem to be less and less long.

The thing people dont seem to see is that single player is being phased out atm, seems to be less 1 player action and more and more in regards to multi player and to coop play, hell even smaller amounts of achievements in single player and twice as much in multi player and coop modes.

I dont care about achievements so much especially due to the fact they try and make me go online to get them, but im pointing it out due to the way they are making you chose the game features you actually play.

I love being able to save my game and then do something else, a few games atm are anoying as hell due to having to spend some time to get to a save point before you are able to exit the game or shut it off, noticed that in red dead redemption, u can pause the game and such and come back later on but that is not exactly energy efficient.

Other examples is the milking of people with all these games that require a subscription and private servers giving out a donator benefit option, in css there are servers that offer full armor and nades and such if you donate a small amount.

In general this market is nothing more then a milking machine for the company's and people with a good idea as well or good scam, what ever you want to call it, it has nothing to do with i hope you enjoy this game as much as we enjoyed making it bs!.

Amen... Don't forget that Microsoft is making you pay for a subscription to keep enjoying the game online because if you don't pay for it you just get the 5 hours long campaign.

Iv'e heard a lot that Halo was a revolution. In what, FPS shooters? Think again, Halo is a revolution in an infinite amount of money for a game that has been done 100 times.

Games these days are more about looking good for a mass market (the casual market) than delivering a satisfying experience for the more seasoned player.

There is a simple reason larger industry games are short, the faster you finish our shiny new game the faster you'll buy our shinier newer one.

Although the majority of the game industry has taken this approach there are some diamonds in the rough if you know where to look (Zelda, Mario, Disgaea, etc) or if you're willing to read a review or two about the game before you buy.

Thats just microsoft hyping themselves.... you know, what companies do to try and sell their product.

I doubt anyone who isn't a Halo fanboy will say that it was a revolution.

Nobody with a brain would call Halo a revolution. I love Halo, but it's just a game, a good game in my opinion but still just a game.

I hate all the crap over the game though. Why can't the people who like it just play it and the people who don't just not play it? Is that too much to ask for?
