Ohh, now it's about gameplay > graphics. That's what the console fanboys usually resort to, no pun intended. This is going to be fun watching.

Default Re: Halo 2 vs. Half-Life 2

Since when is stating the obvious truth (as has been pointed out by Sat, Edge and others before me) that the majority of people here ARE ignorant about the XBOX as reflected by the fact the XBOX owners are in the MINORITY here?

That's just a fact. I never said "the majority are assholes". I said they were ignorant and it was in context to a discussion re HALO2 vs HL2. A bloody ridiculous discussion at that. My issues with your commentary stem from the fact that you attempted to have a comparitive discussion when THERE IS NOTHING OTHER THAN SOME SCREENSHOTS to compare. That's crazy! What's more it smacks of rabid fanboyism.

I think my issues with your commentary are entirely valid.

You cannot surmise anything about how either will PLAY from those screenshots. You also cannot define the WORTH of either game from bloody screenshots.

I swear in one thread you're attacking HL2 and in this one you seem to be defending it. Though I'm not quite sure from what.

Maybe we should make a special Half Life 2 : DVS Edition? Whizbang front end wicked cool graphics that look awesome especially when still with a free included piracy-anti-authentication-and-let-me-bitch-at-length-about-nothing back end.

Sounds like it's perfect for you.

uhh? Uh no It was actually about how can you actually compare to unlreased games. DVS here is trying to tell me that HL2's more modern GRAPHICS ENGINE determines that Half Life 2 will be a BETTER GAME then HALO 2.

I'm disputing the comparison. That's all.

man, wake up. i own an xbox and love it to death. of course i am going to play halo 2 like a madman, BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS I EXPECT I WILL PLAY HL2. Have you even seen the trailers? dude, half life 2 is going to be freakin awesome. im sure halo 2 will be fun as hell, but im more interested in playing half life 2. the reason for this is because of the things we already know about it. the graphics are, needless to say, awesome. The ai will be crazy, have you seen the facial expressions? in the world of hl2 you can do almost anything, ALMOST EVERYTHING IS DYNAMICALlY CHANGEABLE! hl2 has a crazy physics engine in which almost anything is possible. you can use almost anything as a weapon. what more fun than being able to grab a tv, or a chair, and turn it into a flying alien-killing object? i know somewhere inside you there is a little boy who wants to play hl2. seriously, hl2 almost looks real!



watch the movies man! you need to see every single one of those movies before you can compare them. im seriously trying to help you, you wont want to miss out on hl2.
