resistance 2 was poor, but 3 is one of the best shooters this gen imo.
The first Halo sold like hot cakes, before and after it was packaged as a bundle, just like the following Halo and the one after that. You can say what you like, but in the end people's general opinions of the game far outclass those of other shooters, like Resistence (and I'm not talking fan boys, I'm talking older, more experienced gamers).
Halo made an impact. That impact is why people still believe in the franchise, despite the more recent games ditching what made Halo so great, to focus solely on multiplayer (Halo 3 comes to mind).
Here's hoping 343 Industries' efforts are noteworthy and we finally have a worthwhile campaign to play.
