Halo Vs. Modern Warefare




Modern Warefare

Not any specific games from either series, just which one do you like better?


The game that revolutionized first person gaming at its time and what literally kept the original Xbox from being a flop, Halo is based in the future when the entire world must unite against an invasion of an alien race known as the covenant. Halo introduced many of the features used in modern day first person shooters and continues to be a successful series today with the newest game in the series coming out this September. Halo is often wrongly thought of as coming after the Call of Duty series. Though most people don't like to admit it, Halo basically made first person shooters on consoles what they are today. Though obviously not as realistic as Modern Warefare, the game tends to feel more flexible and has much less glitching in multiplayer gameplay than Modern Warefare has.

First game of the Halo series - Halo: Combat Evolved - Release date: November 15, 2001

Modern Warefare

A branch off of the traditional "Call of Duty" titles (which use many of the classic "Medal of Honor" gameplay methods mixed with modern gameplay styles which greatly goes back to "Halo" with just enough touch of their own style of game making and story telling to make a great game) Modern Warefare bosts being the most succesful game series to ever attempt to make a game about the current war going on today. MW made several game features popular that are commonly used in many games today, such as not actually having a health gage, but instead having stamina that recharges over time, and Call of Duty was the game that made pulling the left trigger (or L2 on a Playstation) popular for zooming with your weapon instead of the inconvenient clicking of the right thumbstick. Though not as flexible feeling do to the game having more down to Earth physics that Halo, the game feels much more realistic, like you're fighting an actual war than Halo does.

- You actually get some changes in the game. (Forge, Theatre, armors).

- Huge plot.

- The little things (namely, being able to see your feet.)




- Your Face isn't seen/doesn't speak much.

- The games don't show what happened between games (how many kids actually read First Strike, then didn't make a crazy theory on how Johnson got off Halo?)

- Crazy Fanboys



Modern Warfare:

- Made modern shooters popular.

- Easy to follow

- Intresting moments (Nuke, All Ghillied Up)



- Swiss cheese/shotgun hole filled plot anyone (MW2)?

- Makes the SAS seem invincible/can take on the world.

- Your face is hardly seen at all (Ramirez, Allen, Roach) and you don't speak (Ramirez, Roach), even though you were pretty chatty throughout the rest of the game (Captain Soap).

- Apparently, masks+voice=character development (Ghost).

- UnknownMidEastCountryistan is not the same as Iraq/Afghanistan. Don't care if it was for political purposes (See WWII).

- Make two-three tiny changes max (WWII-Modern+Modern stuff)






- Provided some awesome memes (Ramirez, fight the Russian Army with this spoon while Dunn and I eat at BurgerTown!/I think Halo is a pretty cool guy. eH fights aliens and doesn't afraid of anything.)

- Excellent music.



Overall: Halo.

Both are grossly overrated, but I think Halo is the better of the two.

The original H:CE still has one of my favorite video game levels of all time, though.

Fable isn't even a shooter of any kind...?


I really like Halo. Unfortunately, I've never played a Call of Duty game so I can't say for sure, but I've read a lot about it and it seems much less appealing to me. I guess 'cause I really like sci fi, and Halo has such a rich universe built around it. Halo 3 was a bit of a letdown, but Reach looks like it will be incredible.


Also apparently Call of Duty is filled with cheaters and campers? I don't see those terribly often in Halo 3. Bungie does a good job of controlling their players. And I mean that in a good way.


So Halo, I guess.

I've only really played Halo, I've played Half Life, and CoD:WAW, but. Halo is way better.


I mean, I would like CoD, but I've been playing Halo for to long, any time I try playing a CoD game, I always used the Halo controls.


So.... HALO has my vote ^^
