COD4 is the best FPS shooter to date IMO and I have played allot of them. Mine is on PC.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I won't ride you for that, if you don't mind me asking, what specifically didn't you like about the game.
Sure, I hated the map design, maybe it got better in later levels (I stopped at the 4th), but the second one was "Chief run down this long hallway for 5 minutes, hit a switch, run back down it to where you started, shot a guy, then run down another identical hallway for 5 minutes to hit another switch, then back to the control center for another little skirmish, back down an identical hallway only to run back to the control center", and the third one was just a series of the same rooms repeating until you finally got to drive that new ATV thing and kill a scarab (which was cool looking). They just lost all their creativity with this one, the levels used to be varied, it wasn't the same thing over and over again, and backtracking down hallways. It was just the same game we've played for the last 6 years with worse level design.

Like I said, I know it's a huge hit, and I'm sure if I was playing online I'd have a higher opinion of it. However, the single player has been so severely compromised so they could spend their development dollars on the multiplayer that it just isn't fun to play anymore, it was like doing a chore. I LOVED the first one, the second went a little downhill, and the third just doesn't live up to the standard.

I don't play online multiplayer, it just doesn't do anything for me, if I'm playing multiplayer, I want it to be like it was in college, and I want to be sitting next to you, and Live is full of 12 year olds who just want to try out every swear word they learned on the playground. It just makes it uninteresting and downright annoying to be playing against random people who I don't know who are bouncing around and going on with streams of BS. I don't find Jr high boys fun to talk to in person, I certainly don't need to hear their conversation when I'm trying to kick back and relax after working all day.

Just my take on it, I buy most of the games out there, and love FPS, but Halo was a let down for me. I may be a dinosaur not going on Live, and even if that is so, not everyone does, and compromising the single player to concentrate on the multi isn't right.

I see your point clearly. I felt like it was new and wonderful and you really do get into some awesome stuff in the later levels. The USMC's answer to the banshee was a high point, flying around taking out banshees with a gun and rockets, plus some of the troops can hang on the side.

The ATV thing sucks IMO and they put it in the multiplayer too much. A worthless vehicle. Alot of the battles do have a similar feel to em but the brutes are a good update. I have to disagree with you in that I don't think the franchise took a step down with the second rendition. The ability to dual wield was a welcomed addition. I spent many hours sitting on the couch going through that game in multiplayer (both online and local system) and couldn't have enjoyed it more.

You are spot on in the multiplayer problems on xbox live. Pisses me off big time. They have fixed that, for the most part, with halo 3. During matches the only people that can hear you are your teammates, but in the postgame lobby you still get the same trash talking on occasion. It is just unbelievable in halo 2. You see a lot more teabaggin in halo 3 though....probably because all those jr high kids can't run their traps anymore.

Thanks for your opinion and explanation though, I do agree with you in that some of the things did feel a bit repetitive, and it is obvious that more effort (and money) went in to the multiplayer side of things.

Rainbow six vegas is awesome.

I have always loved the rainbow series and it is one of those games I had to have on the release date. The campaing is great I think, and going through co-op improves it. I haven't done too much online with it but I imagine it isn't bad. Hit me up when you get it I'll get online with you and take out some terrorists

I've been playing Vegas online a lately. We usually do Terrorist Hunts, because we can talk and shot the crap with one another. It's nice not having little kids yell in your ear like Halo 3.

Get me a gamertag and I will send you a message when you get it.

Block, we ought to all get together on live and kill some terrorists together. Halo 3 isn't too bad for any of that crap. They curtailed it in matchmaking games (at least in the ranked games) I don't know about the social playlists.

You can only converse with your team in game, though you can still talk smack in the postgame. I've always been a big fan of the "nutdrop" or a "teabag" in game lol. Sometimes I will even throw a little 360 in there while I am dancing on some newbs corpse.

I love halo 3 but I am still up for throwing in any of the other games discussed here. They are all good. Fight night really is good online, requires some skill and stick mastery which is why I like it.

Bioshock was pretty cool too I wish it had multiplayer.

Hey, do 1 of you want to start a thread calling out all the RR gamers in a few of the games we like? For example just list the game you play and your tag.

COD4- ****
Rainbow Six Vegas- *****

Of course for me it would have to be on PC because I don't own any game consoles.

Vegas 2 really doesnt do much for me. I havent done a lot of research into it, but it does appear to be basically the same exact game as the first one.

What do you think about Army of 2?

I'm still messin' with motorstorm on my ps3

I think it's time to get me a new game. COD4 is on my radar, I also like Burnout Paradise. BTW, I have to agree that I like PC gaming better than console, but these new hidef tv's and consoles are starting to change that. The only reason I ever bought PS2 was for GT3, and the same reason for buying PS3.
