Which game do you expect to be better?

The games aren't even comparable. This poll is pointless.

Yep, this is retarded. I'll be getting both anyway. Why do people make a competition out of every game that comes out? It's not like you can only buy ONE game in your whole life. Not to mention, not a single person here has played either game (legally). So how the hell would we know anyway?

I wouldn't call it a competition, HL2 wins! :)

Ugh, nothing good can come of this thread, especially when only a small percentage of people here own an Xbox, but everyone here owns a computer (obviously). Not to mention this would turn into a fanboy war pretty quick.

He should made the question "Which game are you most excited about?" instead of "Which game do you expect to be better?"

Ya know, I'd like to find the guy who first thought it would be a good idea to compare HL2 and Halo 2 and beat him within an inch of his life with an original Xbox "Fattie" controller.

Or a Logitech MX-1000. Whichever weighs more. ;)

no interest at all in Halo 2.. is it even coming to PC?
Halo was major letdown, not at all what it was looking to be back in 2000 when the movies was shown of it..

If it ever turns up for PC, and doesnt suck, I might get it tho.

I can tell you now that he is over on TeamXbox most likely 13 with 12,000 posts making threads like "Which will have better physics Hl2 or HF2?". They have countless threads over there with idiots comparing the two down to graphics. Like the rest I dont see how you can compare them at all other than which will sell more which most likely will be the XBox.

I agree very useless poll, since they are both completely different games, on completely different platforms, with a completely different fanbase... but If you must. I think this picture sums up my feelings appropriately. But keep in mind PC Games will always eat up XBox games IMO. (Except MK Deception:))

Kinda hard to compare two "officially" unreleased games.

That are on completely different platforms, with two different styles of gameplay, multiplayer implementations, etc., etc., etc.

Halo 2 is outdated compared to Half Life 2 In Graphic departament and Physics engine, in my opinion anyways.

If XBOX is your main gaming platform and your PC isn't that good (or just like the console more), then you'll probably like Halo 2 more. I think both games will be good, but PC Gamer did call Half-Life 2 the best game ever. I dunno how true that is as it can be subjective, but that's a pretty bold statement from them. :wong:

Uh, this aint bad for a 150$ console

and this isnt that great considering it has almost unlimited hardware capabilities...

Those are all devshots. You think you'll see detail like that at 640x480 noAA/noAF? Yeah ok.

This is how the game will look:

I'd like to see the XBOX display Halo 2 at 1024x768 with 8xAA and 16xAF (what your screenshots are implying). The screens you took are taken from cinematic angle on a PC platform, using their own XBOX emulators, with the game at higher details than the XBOX version will have, with resolution maxed out, and AA and AF maxed out.

Another example. How does Halo 1 for XBOX look?

Like this?

Or like this?

Can you spot which one is the dev shot and which one is how the game actually looks.

Well your posting low quality pics taken on a digital camera to compare. Halo 1 on xbox was one of the best looking games for its time.
