A new franchise would be nice.

 

But this doesn't sound like anything bad. It actually sounds beneficial.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Not bad for a game that has been described to me as "boring."

I'd be very surprised if that was true.

I'm sure the Half-Life series still did better sales-wise than the whole Halo trilogy.

 

Not to break your hopes, but that's impossible. The very fact Halo made mroe than any other movie or game in it's first day makes surpassing it in terms of sale impossible for years.

Better sales on the first day then any game released, and posting stuff like "yeah well my friend said it was boring" doesn't really help much.

 

Also a bigger marketing push than any other game ever released. I wonder if there's a causal relation here...

Myth and Warcraft don't really have anything in common. If anything, Myth is an early precursor to a game like the Total War series. You don't manage resources, you use formations and terrain to win battles.

Warcraft 3 seemed to take after Myth quite a lot, both in the "run the gauntlet!" style of gameplay and the "put your ass to sleep!" boringness.

Right, and Half Life 2 was built upon the ideas introduced Halo 1, that's why it was trite and dull.

It's all about availability. What Half-Life is for PC fans, Halo is for the Xbox kiddi...ahm fans. Besides, most of the customers are herd animals. The marketing just needs to create a phenomenal storm of hype, and no matter whether it holds actual ground or not, many people will just buy into it. How else could you explain a mediocre SciFi FPS to be so successful?

I'm gonna have to say the first Halo wasn't "mediocre", else even the hype wouldn't have saved it.

 

The other two, however, had (and have) so much hype it didn't matter if it was (or is) crap.

 

Besides, you can't call "Halo" a mediocre shooter. Average, yes. Non-innovative, yes. But the game is definitly not a piece of horrid crap.

lol that I meant it doesn't innovate as much as it should, but it's still a fun shooter.

 

Hmmmz... it seems I've said something stupid. I think I'll go away now... :thumbsup:
