So I have a stack of recent games sitting by my Xbox including Forza Horizon, X-Com and WWE 13. All games I was enjoying yet halo came along last week and god damn is it good. I've not ever been this into a halo title. Last night I dinged level 50 and was able t on my new specialization. Its been literally all I've been playing. I tried putting in WWE 13 only to take it out minutes after and start playing halo again. Which sucks because man I was enjoying X-Com but it just doesn't compare to shooting dudes in Halo 4 slayer matches. Hopefully I can break away next week to play Hitman as I finally pulled the trigger on buying that.

I have enjoyed Halo 4 a lot as well. It's the first Halo game I've ever gotten into or owned for that matter.

If you are playing and enjoying Halo why not stick with it. Yes there are other games you have but don't force yourself.

#6 Posted by Ravelle (1375 posts) -

Level 50 already? Geez, As much as I love the matches after a while I get frustrated because luck isn't on my side and keep dying without scoring any points.

Really? I didn't like Halo 4 that much.

It's true, Halo is a better FPS than all those games!

Halo is great and all that but in a fight for my spare time, halo vs hitman, halo doesn't stand a chance.

I'm a massive Halo 4 fan, but I'd prefer playing XCOM:EU over Halo 4.

#18 Posted by YOU_DIED (703 posts) -

I don't know what you're talking about, WWE is the best FPS out of all of those games

#19 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Solution: Play Halo until Halo isn't fun anymore and you have a ton of interesting games waiting for you.

@Ravelle: Its quite literally all I've played. I had Tuesday off work and while I didn't play non-stop all day I played 2-3 matches then did something else for 45 minutes or so then proceeded to play a few more matches. That pretty much went on all day. A big part is just finishing off challenges you get some pretty massive payouts in XP.

Happiness guilt. Feeling bad about feeling good.

I'm glad the OP is enjoying Halo 4. I look forward to playing it sooner or later. It may be the last game I buy for my 360.

#25 Posted by Gunslinger0130 (228 posts) -

Halo 4 is great if Halo is your thing, not really my thing so I've still got lots to play, X-COM included.

#26 Posted by HistoryInRust (6379 posts) -

Eh. It's good but it's not the best time I've had this year. Forza Horizon was a blast.

#27 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -

i like halo as well.

Yeah I'm 47 in Halo 4 and absolutely loving it but there is NOTHING in Halo as satisfying as having 2 overwatch Heavies with heat shot ruin a Cyberdiscs day or watching your Sniper one-shot 2 Mutons in a single turn. That game can become an emotional roller coaster over the course of a turn.

So YOU'RE one of those fuckers running around at level 50 when the game's only been out for a week :(

I don't know if it has changed my opinion on Assassin's Creed 3 but it has allowed me to put to words what I was experiencing while playing AC3. Halo is a linear game. But within that linearity are options and the systems and AI are dynamic enough that when I fuck up a plan of action I can regroup and readjust. For example, there was a segment in Halo 4 where I was trying to walk across vines above the enemy so that I could snipe at the enemy from relative safety. Well, I miss-stepped and fell off the vines directly into a group of enemies. I switched weapons, sprayed randomly into the AI group so that they would disburse and look for cover, and then I turned around and sprinted for the nearest cover so I could regroup.

I had a similar situation happen in AC3. I was walking along the rooftops during a mission trying to assassinate various guards while I moved toward my next objective. I miss-stepped and fell into a group of enemies. However, unlike Halo 4 where I could regroup and change my tactics, I had broken one of the objectives (don't be seen) and had to restart from a checkpoint. So Halo 4's gameplay design of dynamic linearity has lead me to dislike the harsh linearity of AC3 even more.

To be fair if you don't have a good internet connection you will always be on the wrong side of "luck" (though I doubt that is what Ravelle was getting at)

If I throw some grenades and explodes without doing damage to the enemy team and when they throw some grenades and I fly through the sky like some ragdoll, it's things like that.

I was like this for a while when I finished Persona 4 for the first time. Don't worry it will pass.

I'm assuming english isn't your first language. It is very hard to understand what you say sometimes.
