ok what game has brought the world/letters fps as a household name? Which game has the most sucessful online games excluding the dying computer games? How about the pistol whip, who instated that feature in fps games? You're talking about gears of war, but tell me if Halo didn't come out, how good would gears of war be? they could never invent these features or even be noticed without the Halo series. Thats why it's the best game ever. Besides Red Faction started the fps system (using two analog sticks), or at least it was the first sucessful game in that genre and Halo reinvented it.
