Everything about the Halo game stories screams "generic". Hell, their main character is one of the most generic characters in gaming.

You're right, all FPS games have the same gameplay as Halo.
I never said anything about the gameplay. The gameplay is unique and it's what makes Halo one of my favorite shooter franchises. I just think Master Chief is a generic character.

Mass Effect has a great backstory. Heavy Rain and Uncharted, not so much (although they still have great stories). I could see Uncharted developing into somewhat of a universe, but certainly not Heavy Rain (although anything's possible).

The Halo games are saved by the backstory (written by other people). The games themselves have shallow stories and Master Chief is a generally unlikable, and again, shallow character.

He is actually a really interesting character if you read "The Fall of Reach"

I agree. Even the name screams lack of personality.

He has a real name
Master Chief Petty Officer is his title in the UNSC but everyone just calls him that. His real name is John.

Dude,Master Cheif is a great name.They call him by his rank(Master Cheif Petty Officer).That is unique and isnt used much.Usually you will see characters called by their first name or last names.And nicknames.For example "Sev" "Nathan Drake" "Cole" "Hale" "Soap" "Snake" "Marcus" "Dom" "Baird" "Rico".I could go on

Oh and Master Cheif's name isnt "Master Cheif",its "John".They just call him by Master Cheif which is unique

Whats cooler?John or Master Cheif?"Oh john, go stop the covenant!" Boring boring boring.

Please read Fall of Reach before you say hes an unlikable character and is boring.

I agree though. Master Chief is kind of a boring character. Halo Reach should be pretty awesome, unless Noble 6 is just as boring as MC.

Oh, so his name is John . . . that sounds so much less generic. Where have we had a protagonist with the name John?

I love halo, I just hate a character that happens to be in Halo. Kinda like how Rico is a total dick in KZ2, doesn't mean I don't enjoy the game.

Well considering the main audience of the games is in it for the gameplay and online, it kinda makes sense to have story references there but not really emphasized except when reading the books.

its not exactly right to just say "well i dont like the stuff in the game" when the character developement in the novels more then compensates. If your gonna talk trash about the universe, you should take the whole universe into account.

The games are just there for the hardcore gamers. The games actually make up very little of the whole Halo universe.

I agree, but, if someone mostly just buys Halo games and ignores he books and comics etc etc, the story itself should at least present the story well. I'm not saying the story is presented bad, for I did not say it.

I never talked trash about the universe. I just said the story was presented poorly in the games, and I was bored by the game stories. Still, letting someone else develop your character is no excuse for not developing him yourself. This universe started with the video games, you would think that the game would at least retain some sort of interesting story rather than let everyone else write all of the good material in the form of books.

Hell didn't want him, I'm guessing. Dunno why. He's a perfect punishment for sinners.

I've noticed the only sci-fi FPS on the PS3 that comes close to the gameplay mechanics of Halo is "Section 8". Man, I loved that game. Keep in mind that "Section 8" is also on the 360 & PC. There are demos on all three systems and I would suggest people give it a try.

I'm also looking forward to getting into the Halo series. All goes well and I should have my 360 by this time next month. Smile

I thought Section 8 was pretty mediocre. It wasn't bad, but it's wasn't very good either.
