Halo 3 TV commercial

http://www.gamersyde.com/stream_4475_en.html

Some dispute over if its disrespectful to real veterans. I say no. Kind of on the line I guess but I don't see anything wrong with it.

HL is a billion times better than Halo imo too. I would even go as far as to say the original HL was better than Halo 1, even though the graphics were far more superior HL has a MUCH better story line that gets you more involved. I liked the first Halo and like playing LAN with friends but didn't care for the second one at all and the third I will probably care for less.

What's HL?

I don't really care what a private business wants to put up. Especially game systems. I haven't played a Playstation or any gaming system in probaby 2years. Or I remember playing GTA Vice City when the San Diego game just came out and that was the last time I played a video game. Other than say Golden Tee at a bar or something.

HL was released in 98, halo in 2001...

halo is a great game, comparable to Half life, but only because half life set a standard. the only game i can go back and play when im bored with out getting sick of after ten minutes is HL or HL2.

I dont see anything wrong with the video, if you cant distinguish betwwen real life and tv then you got bigger issues. I actually love the halo series and like killzone too, great first person shooter games.



It is not about how hard you can hit! Its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!

Don't judge me based on your ignorance.

can u elaborate? why is it offensive?

Halo 1 was sweet, Halo LAN was awesome ... halo2 just sucked overall. I dont have a 360 and if I did i prolly wouldnt buy halo3, cuz all my friends are going to and all I want to do really is play the campaign. the story is interesting enough.

Bikeless for the moment.

I don't think its offensive, I was just reading an article on it and they said they had received some complaints. Like I said before the reason i like HL over Halo is just because HL has such a richer story imo. It set a lot of gaming standards and was completely revolutionary. Halo may have a semi unique story line but its based on the blueprints HL set down as a great game.

i heard a while back that the only reason people love halo so much is because its really the first game in a LONG (and i do mean long) time to have a great multiplayer setup. if it wasnt for that itd just be another game on the market. im buying it for the multiplayer and id like to see how it all ends. ive never played HL but i want to cus ive heard nothing but good things about it.

If your going to play HL start with the original, I know u may be tempted to just start with HL2 since it has the better graphics but u need to play the original to get the story line. I agree with u about the multiplayer setup, its pretty much the only reason i play halo. Another explanation is that Microsoft just purchased a bunch of people to be fans of the game lol.

i think the second halo is only liked cuz of the multiplayer(i like it but only for that reason), the first one i thought was a great overall game.

This is a case of PC police going overboard. It's a fictional story. Next thing you know any movie based on a fake war is going to be offensive to reality...

I saw nothing disrespectful. I swear people can see anything out of nothing.

Of course, people saw Jesus in a Grilled Cheese sandwich once.

One of my buddies bought an Xbox off of me and only owns one game... Halo 2. He's crazy addicted... and flucking awesome at it... He plays local tournaments all the time and wins real money... He's got a team and chit... It's crazy... He probably logs 5 hours a day playing that game...
