Eh eh and another eh. I don't consider a new mode and some dizzying effect to be "innovative", no matter how cool they are. And the counter-operative mode was just a variant of other modes from other previous shooters on the N64, so it wasn't totally fresh.Originally Posted by Squall7
I've played both extensively as well, and that still doesn't make my opinoins facts. I understand innovative moreso then you believe (i've argued in Halo's favor MANY many times before this), and I know why it is innovative. I never said Halo was better than Perfect Dark, I was just arguing on the basis of innovativity (word?), which Halo definately has more of. Many people hate Halo. I know this. But it just makes me mad when they have no reason to say it's over-hyped because they usually don't know what they are talking about it.My opinions are based on facts. I have played both extensively, and have come to this conclusion based on evidence and a clear understanding and definition of "innovative". I'm not saying it's "better", what I am refuting is that Halo is as innovative as you say it is. There are loads of different types of people that refer to Halo as over-hyped. For example, the non-gamer. How about the anti-microsoft people? If I wasn't a Nintendo fan, I wouldn't be here on this forum. I'm not particularly a fan of RPG (mainly the Final Fantasy series), and I have played the game extensively. Your specific use of words are trying to make out that it's "not normal" for someone to dislike Halo (or think it's over-hyped), and that they must belong to certain catagories, whereas people who don't fit into those catagories automatically think that Halo's reputation is deserved, and not in the least hyped up.
The original Xbox controller was terrible, yes, but the Controller S when it first released blew the N64 out of the water.Wasn't trying to miff anyone off. To me, the shape and size of the Xbox controller are awkward. I could very easily get on with the N64 controller.
I never said I was right, and I never said you were wrong. I was just trying to emphasize that your opinoin, no matter how vaild it maybe, can not be played off as fact in an argument. Halo was just such an amazing game to me... it sucked me in, absorbed me for hours and hours, and to be honest it has never let go of me. I love that game to death and i'm willing to argue with anybody who says otherwise about it.P.S. I think this debate has gone on long enough. If you have more to back up your ideas that Halo is innovative, then please feel free to post them. If it's just gonna be a "I'm right, you're wrong" kind of rant/post, please research before hand and back up your ideas.
Because you guys won't shut up about HaloThank you squall this guy obviulasy will not shut up about Halo even though you can telling him what innovative is alright skin change the topic man your getting old fast
