Let me have all my Steam games on Linux now please and I will happily say good bye to Microsoft forever.

I was on the verge of commenting this exact thing but had decided not to.

If it weren't for giving up games like BF3, I would have been on Linux long ago. Hopefully developers follow Valve and start working on the Linux crowd. There's money to be made there, as the Linux population generally seems to be "more giving." Look at the Indie Bundle donations.

I wish I could say the same. For me personally I have surpassed the point of, "Wow this game is awesome, I would rather play it than not," and I am just so sick of the borderline extortion by the corporations in this country (gaming not the worst, they are a symptom however). I'm not even 30 and I have had enough of consumerism to a point where I have vowed to buy no new media (game/film/music) in 2013. That doesn't mean pirating it either. "Big deal," some might say but this will be a big step in a different direction for me.

Good aim just has slightly more weight than the others.
It's why players who have good aim, can touch just about every FPS game and still be above average than the normal joe.
Someone who has better movement CAN beat someone with better aim who doesn't have the movement down. Strafing/going in circles ftw

Going by history no it wouldn't. Halo Combat Evolved and Halo 2 did nowhere near the same amount of sales as their console counterparts (unless you can show Halo selling 10 million plus PC copies and Halo 2 selling 16 million plus PC copies).

Unless you mean it means it would have doubled overall sales, which even with that I doubt it would have (PC versions of the aforementioned games didn't sell near as many copies). The Halo following on PC isn't that big. There would certainly be interested parties but having missed Halo 3, Halo ODST, Halo Reach, and Halo Wars, and not likely having the same level of support, I doubt it would have been that popular in comparison.

It is a great game. Shame so many are so quick to hate on it just because they cannot play it on their preferred platform of choice. They seem more in love with their hardware than with playing good games. I guess it must suck obsssessing over pixels so much that you cannot enjoy a game.

Yup, i love console games, they practically play themselves.


While there are some FPS with Aim Assist, the majority of them don't have it, or if they do they have the ability to disable it. Most good players will disable it simply because it is more of a hindrance than a help to any half decent player. Ask anyone who played Perfect Dark Zero, GRAW 2, or Rainbow 6 Vegas on a competitive level.

Being someone who plays on PC with a control pad, I notice it when it is vaguely apparent in a game, probably alot more than those who do not (you would be surprised by how many people don't even realise it's there).

And in regard to any form of aiming assistance, be it aim assist, auto aim, bullet magnetism. There's one thing you have to remember. It's an even playing field. It's not like anyone has some special advantage. So the difference in skill levels can be pretty astounding. Having aim assist when everyone else also has it doesn't mean the difference between gods and newbs. You still need some really good skill to thrive at the top. Of course, some of you would know this if you had played the game properly.

Halo 1/2 sold 6.4m/8.4m as a whole, not on consoles alone. Your point stands though, PC sales likely did not come even close to console sales. 3 was Xbox exclusive and sold 11m.

Xbox 360 is also way more popular than the original. I think Halo 4 would do well on PC, but yes, not nearly as good as the Xbox 360. If they had a feature where it was cross platforming...I can see a ton of Pc gamers getting it just to prove they're superior. biggrin.gif Halo 4 on pc would be glorious to say the least, it already looks incredible on the Xbox 360...And I'm the last person to compliment console game graphics.

What you guys are missing is that the previous Halo PC sales are taken from an era when XBox was still considered a fairly strong platform in comparision to PC's and Halo was new and awesome. XBox sales destroyed PC sales because the delay on the PC port took FOREVER, it had become established as "an XBox thing" and that was that.

Today is an absolutely different story. Consoles are left in the dust and getting further left behind by the day. Any developer NOT cashing into the explosion of PC sales is missing out big, we have seen even the most console-obsessed developers at least trying to make a PC port.

If there was a solid PC port then twice the sales would probably be an understatement, I would say close to 3x the sales. People love to play these kinds of games on PC, look at Borderlands 2!

I rechecked my source and found it to indeed be incorrect. Halo 2 did 8 million plus copies sold alone with the majority being on console.

 

But yes, my point stands. PC would do nowhere near as well. History has proven it.

Microsoft ruined both ports, first off they forced people to get Vista for Halo 2, and Halo CE took two years after the Xbox version..Halo 2 was well on it's way at this point, most people were thinking why get Halo CE when Halo 2 is around the corner? I was one of those people but I got Halo CE because the online play which the xbox didn't have. Halo CE on PC was also bugging as ****!

We have also seen the complete opposite. PC obsessed developers try to make Console ports. Ascaron, Crytek, Larian Studios, CD Projekt, Runic Games, etc. I don't think this is a real draw here.

I'll agree there are some successful multi platform games, but I don't think that would mean Halo 4 would triple or quadruple in sales just because it is on PC. Actually, in all honesty, I find it highly unlikely.
