I play HALO regularely for the multiplayer. The campaign was ok but the multiplayer is were it's at. And as for it being a poor port, I don't notice at all. It runs at 60+ fps (that's with 16x AF) which is plenty for me. And I do hope that Halo2 will make it to PC. That would be sweet.

dual wield weapons== ace

I own both on Xbox and I love em.

Surprising to see Halo outselling Halo2 but c'est la vie. Halo was a superior game IMO.

Me too

I own both Halo 1 and Halo 2 for X-box, and Halo for PC as well

I hate the PC version of #1, but on X-box, it's amazing. It's a hard call for what I like better. Halo 2 has some goodies, but Halo 1 has some unforgetable moments too

If the PC version had been as good as the X-box one, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it where it is on that list. But I just can't enjoy the PC version at all...

i think wow has sold more than 1.5 million...so that's roughly about $ 60 million on selling just the game not taking into account the monthly fees....talk about a cash cow....
