half life isn't a fps? now I feel really stupid.
If halo set the standers for all fps, then why are most games nothing like it?
And like I said goldeneye had a vechiles to along with star wars.


EDIT: I just googled it and it says half life is a fps :D

Common mistake. :) It has FPS sections yes, but it isn't a FPS, a FPS is like Halo or CoD, A first person adventure is like Metroid Prime or Half Life, they have two very different playing styles.

Because we have things called lawsuits. If it isn't seen as good enough for a lawsuit then it will be heavily critisized by the gamers and media, example: God of War V Dantie's Inferno where Dantie's Inferno is a direct clone of God of War, there wasn't a lawsuit but it is heavily abused by many gamers and gaming medias.

One tank in storymode. Halo has 3 or four you can use in multiplayer.

Also shooter's start coming out more was because of the release of duel stick which made thing's more easier. Halo had nothing to do with it.

Halo was among the first to use dual sticks, which lead to people realizing it would work.

Halo may have originally been on PC but nowadays it's exclusively Xbox, you can't find any of the new Halo's on PC anymore

I'd have to say Goldeneye halo if anything improved the concept.

and if you want to know what game started Fps I can answer that one too.

I am curious. Halo was the first one I've heard of, but it seems to have more of a history than that.

FPs started around 70's and 80's, But the first fps was maze wars correct?

Maze Wars and Spasim were the first two FPS games, it's not said which one was the first one made.
