You can call that hype all you want, but you're wrong. You claim the game is imbalanced but fail to cite an example, perhaps that is because the game isn't imbalanced, you just aren't good at it and need an excuse for sucking.
I have played, I was good, level 45 in fact...not the best but still higher than most. So on a Sunday morning when kiddies have the day off, people are not working, most people who own an xbox would probably sit down to play some games...now with 175k that you're saying, that is still only 2.16% 17 months after release
and that's on a day where most people play it, it doesn't take a genius marketer to realize that those are some god-awful stats. And if your referring to xbox stats exclusively...you're right, no game has better stats, but there are several games in which MANY more people play at any given point than halo 3 so stop making it sound like the god of all games and stop trying to attack me with my apparent bad skill which you would have no clue about. Having played it for months on end after release with friends it got boring and I kept asking myself why I still turn it on every day. Games like CS 1.6 10 years after release
have amazing stats considering new games being released, and that my friend is why developers should use games like that as a model.
Edit: My example...jeez any game can be used, any 1v1 can be used as an example for what I said. I assume you play halo3 so how can you say that its not heavily dependent on who sees who first in a match.Edited by Bizzy - 2/22/09 at 2:05pm
