    Ok, well, for this rant, im going to compare an average shooter (Halo 3) and a Great Amazing Shooter (Half Life 2)

    Halo 3 so far is 360 Only.
    HL2 is for Xbox, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

    Score 1 for Half Life 2.

    Halo 3, being only 360 for the time being, can't be modded that easily.
    Half Life 2 comes with the Source SDK, which comes with the ability for users to create their own mods, (easily, i would say), Hammer Editor (Custom Maps, dont have to wait a long ass time for new maps), and many many more feats.

    Score 2 for Half Life 2.

    Halo 3 tries to incorporate Sandbox gameplay by having "Forge", being able to tool around with game variants and make their own Game Varaint and object placement, but only just by replacing various items on the map.
    Half Life 2 has Garry's Mod, where you can Pose Ragdolls, build such contraptions as a Catapult, Windmill, and even a Teleporter with WireMod.

    Score 3.

    Halo 3 tries to be all shiny with Bloom Effects (Which is really over-abundant, by the way.)
    Half Life 2 has had this for 3 years now. What the Hell? Halo 3 thinks bloom is now.

    Score 4.

    Halo 3 re-hashes Deathmatch, CTF, and others. A lot.
    Half Life 2 has Half Life 2: Deathmatch, (Deathmatch.

    ) Counter Strike Source (Round Based Tactical Squad Shooter), Day Of Defeat Source (WW2 Tactical Shooter), and many more mods, even Sourceforts.

    Score 5.

    Halo 3 tries to share files with gamers as "File Share".
    Half Life 2, where users can also Record games, take screenshots, but plus create their own Game Mods, Saved Games, and Models for Weapons.

    The List goes on.

    I Hate Halo 3.
    End Of Story.

    Anybody, want to debate?

    This is what i hate.
    Over-cracked Fanboys.


    ZOMG HALO 3 IS BETTUH!

    You've never played HL2, anyways.
    Give it a freaking Chance. It's an amazing game.
    You'll think its better after a year of playing it.
    Jeez, its only 20 bucks now, along with HL2DM.

    Resistance was Actually pretty fun, an Alternate 50' ish universe, reminds me of like a Surface-like Bioshock, only a little more obscure.

    actually, i have HL2 for xbox and i really enjoyed it and i think its one of the best games for xbox....

    but the beauty of halo 3 is the enviornment, the graphics, the controls, the storyline, its all too perfect....

    but i do agree with you on its unhackability...
