Just making a poll to see if there are more Halo fans than COD fans, so i put the original Halo and the original Call of Duty, to see how many people actually know them, along with the newest ones.

But in all honesty, you really can't compare these two games, they are completely different, Halo is a sci-fi FPS with lots of action, story, and a few horror elements. And Call of Duty is a realistic FPS which captures the true meaning of war, while mostly focusing on multiplayer.

The only thing they have in common is that they are both FPSs.

Post in the comments to tell why you like either halo or cod, or why you think its better.
And also your attachments to the games, if you have any.

But please refrain from calling people names or rudely throwing them off of a cliff if you disagree with them.

Why...

Fps games in general just don't entertain me for longer than a couple of days.
I used to be a person that kept up with COD k/d back in modern warfare, but I realized there are way better games out there than cod/halo.

Edit: but the campaign did give a decent anti war message, but typical cod players just jump right into the multiplayer.

There is a reason why most people just skip the campaign and get ready for the multiplayer as soon as they get a CoD, also zombies is a great addition to the game.

Halo campaign is a ton of fun and its better if you do it Co-op online, the multiplayer is fun too, specially for the vehicles and assassinations.


Both are very different games, its hard to choose. It would have been different if you said something like CoD vs Battlefield vs Medal of Honor

Y'know, somewhere on a CoD forum there's a poll about console, handheld, or MH and everyone's posting that they all suck.

guess I'll be the 1st, CoD's more fun. and the only reason why I'm pickking one of 2 evils is because it's more fun to troll people on CoD than it is on Halo.

I would like to point out that "none of the above", is not a valid answer to "which of these is better", since the question narrows the options down to those four, or a compromise between them.

Both games are fun to play, but i get tired of shooters pretty quickly. So i really can only say that i prefer the Cod variants because i'm really bad with console shooters. And the halo weapons and gameplay are not as similar in style to other shooters as the CoD spawns are, so i get beaten around pretty badly.

Here's my summary

Halo - Good storyline, creative, changes every new game, and is just generally epic.

CoD - Never changes, hardly any storyline, not very creative, an online full of raging 5 year olds, and can only keep me entertained for about an hour.

soundbored troll those 5 year olds. It adds an extra 30 minutes of entertainment and a 10 minute pondering session of how people are stupid enough to argue with peter griffin and not realize it XD

I'd be all over a new PC Halo but that aint happening.
CoD it is for me, the multiplayer is more fun when I'm playing by myself online. Halo does have a better campaign though. The changes in 4 are a bit dull imo. Almost all new weapons either suck or are godlike. Armor abilities have been toned down.
Please don't jump all over me for saying a new Halo game is dull. From the poll options, BO2 > the rest but I prefer Reach above all CoD games.

I'm not really sure how you can compare them. They offer different amounts of fun in different way.

Though I don't play either.

also i am just trolling.

I found halo 3 pretty fun, the others i haven't played much of. In general I find halo more fun and more skill oriented than CoD, however I don't find either of them to be innovative or extremely imaginative franchises. (I love playing in interesting new ways, even if it's just a holy grail mechanic like the scan visor in the metroid prime trilogy, not the entire control method of the game. Even simply a really good musical score could get me to enjoy a game.)

Oh god you are joking right? CoD has better multiplayer? Yeah if you like the same garbage system repackaged and sold to you every single year because Activision and it's CEO Bobby Kotick are the devils of the gaming industry.

http://www.h3xed.com/pc-gaming/all-your-favorite-bobby-kotick-quotes-in-one-place

Some of my favorites of that evil man's statements are:

Quote :
"I think we definitely have been able to instill the culture, the skepticism and pessimism and fear that you should have in an economy like we are in today. And so, while generally people talk about the recession, we are pretty good at keeping people focused on the deep depression."
Keeping people focused on depression? Gee way to suck the fun out there.
Quote :

"We have a real culture of thrift. The goal that I had in bringing a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision about 10 years ago was to take all the fun out of making video games."
The evil here is clear as day, this quote cannot be understood in any other way other than that he has stripped the fun out of making video games over at Activision. Part of the design and brilliance behind some of the best games of all time were that the developers enjoyed making the game, they enjoyed the 2 or 3 straight days sometimes of non-stop work and being hocked-up on caffeine and energy drinks.
Quote :
"In addition to building our player communities and service platforms for the benefit of our shareholders"
For those who don't exactly understand the last statement, he basically says that we and our games exist not for us the players, but for his greedy shareholders.

Quote :
"First, right now we are ahead of our plans to realize the benefits of the combined company, especially our key profit and profit margin objectives."
"Why donít we start with the Vivendi Games businesses -- there were a lot of different projects and businesses that we identified as not likely to achieve the profit margin potential that we look for."
"With respect to the franchises that donít have the potential to be exploited every year across every platform with clear sequel potential that can meet our objectives of over time becoming $100 million plus franchises, thatís a strategy that has worked very well for us."
These quotes here are the Activision Blizzard earning call and basically in a nutshell say that any game which might be a 1 shot wonder or something that is good, sells well, but doesn't break $100 million dollars in sales as an estimate is pretty much scrapped, Activision is only interested in things they can repeatedly milk us for our money on, and some projects which were in the works under notable names were completely scrapped.

Call of Duty is Activisions flagship money grab and the quality of the game compared to other multiplayer games shows blatantly, especially in the multiplayer area. Sorry but a multiplayer system that lets you get kills without you being the one pulling the trigger on a player is BAD...and call of duty does that with its attack dogs, automatic helicopters, b52 bombers, etc.

I mean I get everyone has their preferences (and I slightly went off topic on the threads interests) but a lot of the time I see people saying CoD multiplayer is good and it's really not, if you can't hate the game for it's CEO then hate it because the mechanics of auto kills in multiplayer that you aren't in control of. If it's not from your gun then it's not a legit kill in my books.

You sir, have said it all. And pretty much expanded on why CoD (IMO) isn't a very good game...

I don't care if it's not on the list. TF2 is just a much better game, structurally.

Valve give us modding tools for maps, weapons, UI mods, and other things to make.
We have 50+ maps, always growing with the community to make more constantly, Battlefield has like, 6?
CoD is full of dull gameplay "You get loads of different weapons!" that do the same thing, sure you get a few different categories, but they all function the same and are pretty bland, and offer little variety to playstyle. TF2 has 9 different classes, that are entirely different. Each class has loads of different playstyles, I recently just took up market gardener with the Soldier. Spy is a totally different class, to all FPS classes.

TF2 is free, herp derp. The economy is huge. From being released in 2006 we still get constant updates, and is still more widely played than all CoD's on Steam. Pretty self explanatory there. TF2's gamemodes are all different, and nice to play, CoD is pretty similar all around, there's virtually no teamwork involved in any of them. You can win CtF on your own. Not to mention killstreaks are the most retarded and unbalanced gameplay mechanic ever created.

CoD DLC is expensive, and worthless, who pays £10 for 4 maps, really? Not to mention the netcode is horrible, ever tried playing on IWnet servers? ;)
CoD also has retarded spawning, leading to spawn camps, so does TF2 really, with organised engineers. TF2's melee isn't instant one-shot, add Commando and you get silly mechanics :P

Tl;Dr TF2 is just a better game then CoD, and always will be.
Spoiler:
 

That's my two cents on this scene regarding CoD's multiplayer :P
Open a thread like this, and you'll be sure to eventually have widespread arguments back and forth that don't end :P

Look at the fan bases too. Both have really fucking annoying fan bases, while most PC shooters (E.G. TF2) have ever so slightly more civil fans.

So there are a bunch of girls wishing their boyfriends were quick scopers, that wish their boyfriends would knife them so they could be quick scopers too, have black ops babies, and some side story involving the kid who can transform into a camper.

Seems legit

I'm seconding the motion that TF2 is better than the above listed. Hands down the most entertaining out of the latter.
