Halo has done consistantly well for a long time, I am sure they have sold millions of copies by now. Enough reason to make a Halo 2 for PC

I only own 3 of the top 20: HL2, Halo, Doom 3

I don't get how Halo is always on the top lists. You'd think by now it would die out with all the new games comming out that run much better

A few of those games are old too, just like Halo. Really surprises me to see

I own 9 of the 20... As for reason Halo is still up there, well most places sell it for $19.99 and its a well known title, even though its a pretty poor one (IMO).

EQ1 Expansion sold so many because well, there are soo many EQ1 Players still... I mean I bought it and I rarely play EQ1 (Its installed but haven't played since the day the expansion released).

Here's the thing with Halo. You can download a Halo 2 mod that pretty much transforms Halo 1 to Halo 2. Other than that mod, why would you wanna buy it for PC? It's horrible on the PC. I'm not much into the MMORPGs but I kinda don't see the big hype in something like WOW. Oh well, just not my cup of tea. It's cool to see Sims 2, Doom 3 and HL2 on there though!

Hmm I played it on the PC and it played fine. It didnt have Anti Aliasing but that didnt bother me much. At 1600x1200 the jagged edges were bearable and the gameplay really wasnt that bad. I have a gamepad so I was able to play it like the Xbox.

See you miss the main thing, about 90% of the purchases of Halo for the PC were by poeple who either didn't care how it performed or didn't know anything about the actual port. They bought it because it was Halo, Its a name... Just like how Final Fantasy will always sell well just because its labeled Final Fantasy... FFXI is horrible (Compared to other MMORPGs) yet it sold very well and has a very strong following in Japan.
