    From what I have seen HellGate rocks!Either you like FPS games or you don't.I like Counter Strike,Quack,Unreal and games such as those.

    There's no denying that the Halo games are really well made, and I applaud Bungie's success, but there's also no denying that the Halo games are overhyped. I own the first two and I've had my share of good times with them, especially online with the sequel, but they're not the "messiahs" people make them out to be.

    I'm not too sure what has propelled this particular FPS to the top - accessibility perhaps? Pick-up-and-play mechanics? I have no clue, but the series is huge. I'll be buying a copy of Halo 3 soon enough, but I tend to shy away from the behemoth games. I prefer the good but lesser known game series so I can have them all to myself!

    Maybe that's why the Dreamcast remains my all-time favorite game console.

    Hellgate: London is the best game I have ever played, and I have only played/tested the game up to beta so far. I am glad you and the rest of Flagship Studios put so much into the game. I have already per-ordered the collection's edition and I am excited that it will be released next month.

    I completely prefer Hellgate: London over Halo.

    I bought halo3, (insurance money rocks?)

    Spent all night last night playing it with my friends, no doubt that Its fun to play with friends, with games like King of the hill, and Infection. I dont think im going to get the xbox live (well i might at least until the free subscription is over not sure how it works). but its fun i just cant get into playing games by my self. My friends talking about getting his 360 hooked up at my house and inviting more people over.

    Dont know when I agreed to this, sounds like to much work to me.

    I think it's because it was the first well made FPS on the next generation console. And the game design. I love only being able to hold two weapons (at least in the first two) so you really have to plan ahead.

    I really love the gravity hammer in the H3. It does get kind of annoying only being able to carry 2, but like you said makes it more interesting.

    I was at Costco today and they were selling Halo 3 for $49.99, roughly ten dollars cheaper than MSRP, so I went ahead and purchased a copy. I'm looking forward to giving it a go!

    The real challenge will be finding time to play it
