C'mon dude. If you're truly a veteran gamer like your name would seem to indicate, you should have more to talk about than just how much you hate Halo. Did you ever play Marathon, the original inspiration for the Halo series? What do you consider to be good FPS experiences this gen? Favorite FPS of all time?

We get that you don't like Halo - let's evolve.
The PSTV is amazing.

I've never been a fan of Halo games after the original. They're personality-less and boring.
Sega Genesis (Model 2), Sega CD, Sega 32X, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Phillips CDi model 910, NES, Atari 5200, Virtual Boy, Atari Jaguar, 3DO, Playstations 2 and 3
I want your lame NES games: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=45465

Here's a list of first-person shooters that are great, and objectively better than Halo.

System Shock 2
Doom or Doom II
Half-Life
Half-Life 2 or it's expansion packs
Far Cry
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Portal
SWAT 4
Painkiller
Star Wars Republic Commando
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky
Team Fortress Classic & Team Fortress 2
Starsiege Tribes & Tribes 2
Perfect Dark
GoldenEye 007
TimeSplitters, 2, or Future Perfect
Red Faction
Deus Ex
Duke Nukem 3D
F.E.A.R.
Shadow Warrior
Outlaws
No One Lives Forever 1 & 2
Battlefield 1942 or Battlefield 2
Crysis & Crysis Warhead
Quake 1, II, or III
Unreal Tournament, 2003, or Unreal Tournament 2004
Unreal
Left 4 Dead & Left 4 Dead 2
Descent, Descent II, or Descent 3
Ghost Recon
Rainbow Six, Rogue Spear, or Raven Shield
Serious Sam
Medal of Honor Allied Assualt or Medal of Honor: Frontline
Call of Juarez (Extremely underrated!)
Metro 2033
Marathon, Marathon 2, or Marathon Infinity
Turok or Turok 2
Wolfenstein & Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Brothers in Arms The Road to Hill 30 or Earned in Blood
Clive Barker's Undying
Battlezone
Call of Duty or Call of Duty 2

Anyone who likes any Halo game or all the games more than any of the games listed here, are idiots. There's not a single Halo fan who has played all or 75% of these games. If they did, they wouldn't be Halo fans.

Does your mom not like you or something? You are very unpleasant.

Almost every single one of those FPS you named are practically identical to me. Save for Metroid Prime, I'd be hard pressed to tell any of them apart from a screen-shot. The entire genre is a bit derivative, isn't it? So why the hate specifically for Halo?

Hahaha, out of all those games you listed, the only ones that are MAYBE better than Halo (Combat Evolved) are Half-Life 2 and Goldeneye.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R shouldn't even be in there. It's more than just an FPS and you obviously haven't played it. It's one of the best modern games I've played this decade. And I hate almost everything made in this generation :|
