Regardless of any statements I've made in the past, you can't sit there and tell me that the original Halo wasn't a fairly-unremarkable game that somehow managed to create millions of rabid fanboys that treated it as the Grand High Franchise
Jesus Christ are you serious. Yes I can, I can say that, I can absolutely assert it was a remarkable game. Furthermore, I would never say the same thing about 'fairly unremarkable' console trash like Zelda or Final Fantasy, because even though I don't see the slightest bit of value in those games, I understand there is
value for many people, and I respect that my perspective isn't everything. Those games are meaningful and important even if I don't enjoy them.
Hell, it spawned an entire culture of a specific type of gamer, which sees its continuation today in the teeming masses of CoD fans. I played the original Halo, and I found the singleplayer to be repetitive and often tiresome, while the multiplayer was a plodding annoying affair; from everything I've heard and seen, the various sequels didn't exactly display any massive improvements. The news of an entire new trilogy in the series feels for all the world like the lame cash-grab it really is.
I respect that my perspective isn't everything, and wow, dude, apparently you don't. Mongoose judges, and thus, I quote, that's how 'it really is'.
If Mongoose doesn't like it, it's a lame cash grab and its fans are frat bros. Get on the Mongoose wagon or get out. There's no room here for people to wish well for franchises they themselves don't enjoy.
What is with this forum? I spend pages defending console gamers from PC gamers, then turn around and find the console gamers being just as toolhardy to each other. Pages defending empiricism from the uninformed, then turn around to find atheists being ****heads.
Also, don't try to pin any sort of negative behavior in here on me alone. I've seen utterly absurd amounts of hyper-critical nit-picking from people in here aimed at titles barely deserving of any of it. I hardly think that a few snide one-liners are a bigger problem than elitist groupthink.
Brother, I just said that you were better than that. Go on, then; prove I'm right. Believe it or not, gaming isn't a zero-sum affair, and the fact that people are having fun with something you don't enjoy isn't cause to tear it down or to make those people out to be idiots.
I've argued for tolerance in your defense before. Now you're on the other side of that argument, and that saddens me.
jesus **** I can't believe I have to do this in a thread about Halo 4, a game I do not even give a **** about.
ed: I mean come on man, it boils down to this: is it hurting you? No. Why do you need to come in here and call the people who enjoy it dumb frat bros? What gives you
the privilege to describe every single Halo player
? Why is your opinion automatically worth more than those of every one of those players?
If you don't like it, that's fine, why do you have to piss on those who do? Even by playground sandbox rules that's pretty small.
