Halo 3, everyone says its good. I dont like shooting games that much. So tempt me why i should buy it. :)

QBOddBird September 27 2007 12:58 PM EDT

'cuz that little hologram lady in there, whatever her name was...she thinks you look good.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 27 2007 1:10 PM EDT

Because it looks just like any shooter conceived since 1999.

Oh, but wait, it has VEHICLES.

And replays....

Wait, i've seen those before.

Because I don't play first-person shooters either but I beat Halo 3 (with Pit's help of course) the day it came out. This of course is after staying up till 3am to finish Halo 2 which I had never played either.

Gandalf September 27 2007 1:16 PM EDT

SundariZelia [The Knighthood] September 27 2007 1:18 PM EDT

Because everyones doing it. And you know you want to. You want to be just like everyone else. Go ahead, it's ok, you'll be able to quit anytime you want. Just try it. You'll be cooler if you do.

You should buy this game because there is some serious marketing might flexing it's muscle right now. Also it's Halo and I'm sure it's pretty fun. I might buy it, but I might not.

j'bob September 27 2007 5:54 PM EDT

ahhhh yes, marketing... ^
you should buy this game because hundreds of thousands of hungry lil childs hope to eat this week and it all depends on how many halo discs they stuff into the plastic cases. buy it even if you don't have the xbox. feed a child for petes sake!!!

I played the latest installment of Halo last night, and it felt pretty much like the first two versions. If you liked Halo and Halo 2, you'll probably like Halo 3.

Personally, the franchise never impressed me.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] September 27 2007 6:11 PM EDT

j'bob wins! I'll buy one. I may buy more than one.

What national retailer sells them? Would such a place be full of unkempt youth, in suspiciously filthy-looking clothing? If so, where can I purchase online?

j'bob September 27 2007 6:21 PM EDT

Bast, hungry wee beasties in many countries will speak your name in reverent tones for ages to come. And I believe you can order them by the case through Sally Struthers (sp?).

ScY September 27 2007 6:27 PM EDT

Ash, you must be a PlayStation guy =)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 27 2007 6:48 PM EDT

Yes, Scy :)

But I am being objective here. Halo does not suck. It just...does not rock either. Not enough to warrant the insane sales of it.

But hey, who am I to starve children to death?!

sooka September 27 2007 6:58 PM EDT

I can't play console based FPS games. Have to have my keyboard and mouse. Team Fortress Classic and Natural Selection are both Half Life mods are the only 2 I've really taken a liking to over the years.

My little nephew handed me my ass in Halo. Vehicles do make games more fun. I still remember Blaster Master for the original Nintendo... that vehicle in that game was sweet.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] September 27 2007 7:00 PM EDT

Halo 3 has outsold every blockbuster film.
We can also say that people like rubbish during these times considering the 2 main blockbusters it outsold were Spiderman 3 and the new Harry Potter film.

SundariZelia [The Knighthood] September 27 2007 7:06 PM EDT

sooka, you can use a keyboard and mouse with the 360 so go play Halo3. And the rest of you that don't seem to like Halo, Pit and I both think you're crazy, it's awesome.

Mikel September 27 2007 8:15 PM EDT

it's not so much the missions that makes this game special, it's the challenge of playing online with tons of other people that makes it an adrenaline rush.

Try Red vs Blue mode.

It's all fun and games until the noob standing next to you shoots off a Rocket Launcher at his feet.

Unappreciated Misnomer September 27 2007 9:09 PM EDT

im sure microsoft will release it for pc

keyboard & mouse > controller

Hyrule Castle September 27 2007 9:45 PM EDT

because everyone else is doing it

"peer pressure"
