I don’t care about CoD. It is just another generic fps to me, but that isn’t what I am about to talk about. I want a Halo 4 and Halo Wars 2. I want a Halo 4 first because I want to see the end of the John’s story before any other game is made. Let’s be honest. If it wasn’t for him, Halo would have never got as popular until Halo 2 (because of online multiplayer). This brings me to Halo Wars 2. After Halo 4 is made, I want to see a Halo Wars 2 made before any random Halo game is made. Halo Wars revolutionized console rts games. So first I want to see a Halo 4, and then I want to see a Halo Wars. I am just going to go ahead and make a timeline showing how each Halo revolutionized its genre.
2001-Halo-It had an amazing diverse story never before seen in a console fps game. Even its customs games revolutionized console fps games. It was what made the xbox popular and put it on the map. It sold about 3 million copies which set the record for most sold games on the original xbox at that time.
2004-Halo 2-It was the first console fps game to create a great successful online multiplayer experience. It is what put the xbox live service on the map. It sold about 6.4 million copies which set the record for most sold games on the original xbox at that time.
2007-Halo 3-It had forge. It was one of the first console fps games to have something like this. The custom games were taken even farther with it. It also had more content than any other console fps at that time. That is why most people bought an xbox 360 back in 2005-2008. It sold about 11.6 million copies which set the record for the most sold games on the xbox 360 at that time.
2009-Halo Wars-It showed that a succesful rts game can be made for consoles. It had simple controls which were perfect. It sold 2 million copies which set the record for most sold console rts game which it still holds that record.
2009-Halo 3 ODST-It was overpriced, but it had a great campaign although it was short. It was still great. It introduced firefight. That was a great feature that became popular. Too many people let the price get in their way to see how great the game was. It set the record for most copies sold for an fps console expansion.
2010-Halo Reach-It had and still has more content in it than any other console fps out to date. No other game has as many options as it has. I have been keeping up with it sales, and sadly it is starting to fall behind Halo 3 sales after this time of its release. A lot of people blame that on the changes, but let’s be honest. It is because CoD is more popular now, and it has taken the sales of a lot of games. (I don’t see how people like CoD when Battlefield is so much better. CoD is overhyped too.) Nevertheless, the Halo Reach beta set the record for a most played console game beta ever.
If you didn’t notice, every single Halo game set a record for something at one time. Both the fps and rts Halo games deserve a sequel.
