To be fair, Halo is a more mainstream game than most PC shooters. I've been a console and pc gamer since the late 80s, but I've never been a huge fan of the FPS genre. Sure, I played Doom, Duke Nukem, Quake, etc. But, after the first Unreal, I lost interest in the genre.
When Halo came out, I blew it off...and then I got the chance to play it. It was refreshing, and the first half of the game is easily one of my most memorable FPS experience. Of course, the 2nd half felt rushed and thrown together.
Still, I feel that Halo only tends to be overhyped in the eyes of PC gamers. I chalk it up to a combination of jealousy, and just differing tastes.
