    Obviously. Nnn. Halo stands out because it was one of the only console shooters to not blatantly f*** up. That's sort of an understatement since some of the controls were quite cool and innovative.

    That along with counterstrike grade multiplayer and you got fans. Got a shallow story and you have pretentious fans (except for maca2kx, you dont seem pretentious in any way.) It's not mystery why Halo is so big, they just played all their cards right and it's no miracle. That said Halo is a bland sci fi shooter that brings nothing new to the plate.
    Srzly.

    In relativity (on the subject of gameplay depth), I say Halo 1\2 does not fair well next to counterstrike. Next to Battlefield 2 it fairs evenly, but no one is going crazy about Battlefield 2.

    This is the problem though with the backstory, it all came out in different medias to support the game after Halo came out. It's a good story when reading the books and the novels and what not, and it does make the game more in depth when you read it, but the games don't really reveal anything from the stories, except some key battles that happened in the universe of the game, like the battle for Mombasa or the Halo rings itself.
