    Simple.
    Is the title "Halo" 1,2, or 3?
    Is it made by Microsoft?
    Does it have a PC online version?
    Does it function on Xbox/Xbox 360?
    if not, then it's not your 'halo'

    Lol, I wonder how many times this question has been asked now...

    Neither Retro nor Bungie copied off of one another.
    Halo and Metroid Prime (These are that are the most related, even though they have huge differences) both started development around the same time. 1998-1999. They have there similarities, but they have huge differences too.

    Metroid is a first person adventure.
    Halo is a first person shooter.

    Metroid has puzzles.
    Halo doesn't.

    (I could keep on going, but i'm gonna spare you all)
    So, no they are not the same.

    Nintendo also copied Sony's little big planet when making Metroid. They both have graphics... Got to be a copy right?! :lol:

    Seriously, tell your brother to "engage brain before mouth"tm and check his history.

    who cares? They are similar in ways, just like other games in the same genres. Just be the bigger man and ignore him. He's probably just trying to get you annoyed...that's what brothers do right?

    Let me give you some advice, from one little brother to another. You don't have to prove anything to them, and no matter how right you are, they're going to win all the argument. Noogies trump logic. They're just trying to rile you up, take solace in the fact that you'll probably out live them. :)

    Wow...
    Does anyone actually read the thread before posting?

    Neither of them copied off of each other. Bungie wouldn't have copied off of a side scroller...and Metroid Prime and Halo were both in development at the same time pretty much.

    The metroid plot was around long before halo existed. End of discussion.

    Go on the Wii shop to VC games and show them the description of Super Metroid for the SNES, it mentions the space pirates right there and this game was out about 8 years before Halo. Metroid Prime and Halo both started development around 1999 too.
