    same old stupid consumers

    same old games, same old engines; just reskinned for profit.

      Halo is awesome multiplayer, 4 guys round a TV. Literally even my days playing Counterstrike many, many times (which was also awesome) never quite replicated the same feeling of Halo. The rock paper scissors of Warthog, Banshee, man with Spartan Laser is just flipping amazing. And that's not even it, it's more like rock paper scissors glue water earthquake death star.

      (Paper beats death star, if you're wondering.)

      (Because it can be WRAPPED AROUND IT, that's how.)

      P.s. you're calling people stupid when you buy a game with "Warfighter" in the name? Avoid all newly constructed nouns like the plague, lest you next end up with Duty Calls: Gunfirer and complain about that.
