You sit there and complain how visually inferior the Halo games on the consoles are compared to most PC games and their graphical capabilities. If your intolerance of games running below 60 fps is greater than your desire to play a game. Then you don't like the game, just the visuals.
If you like a man/woman for his/her looks over his/her personality, then you don't like/love that person. Same crap.
It is a shame, a shame that you're more of a graphics snob than a real gamer. It's a shame the Halo games' graphics capabilities aren't good enough for you despite the gameplay, setting, music, multitude of weapons and vehicles, multiplayer and any other aspects that make a video game.
Typical PC -only game elitist mentality of OCN.
The real funny part here is that I actually never talked about graphics of the game. I'm much more interested in having a good and interesting aesthetic in a game than good graphics.
What I did say was that having to use a controller and playing at 30fps will effectively kill my enjoyment in an fps title
. I'm sorry but I just consider a game that isn't fluid and relies on a control scheme that require auto aim because of being inaccurate as having bad gameplay. It's about the gameplay, not the graphics.
Also as I said, I like the style of the games, I like what they're doing with the multiplayer and what they're aiming for, it's just the restrictions of the platform that I consider to be too much.
And besides, even if someone did only care about graphics, what does it really matter? He/she is not a worse gamer/person for having a different preference to someone else. Some people care about gameplay, some graphics, some like the story, some people focus on social aspects of gaming and some people just want a healthy mix. You can't be any less of a gamer just because you prefer something over something else.
