I am bored and no debates are available right now. I don't want to begin a real debate ( i will join one but I cant come up with topics )

SO FOR FUN

Call of Duty 4 is better than Halo 3

1. Call of Duty 4 is more accurate
I have learned more from paying COD4 than Halo 3. COD 4 utilizes real weapons, such as the P90 and A-130 Gunship. This is beneficial from an educational stance. I now know more. A battle rifle or pistol from Halo 3 has no educational value. Furthermore, the real impact of real weapons in COD 4 has a real impact on me. I dont care that an energy sword cutting a brute looks painful. I feel bad for the troops in Iraq who go through the urban combat that is correctly portrayed in COD 4

2. Call of Duty 4 is a better game
Call of Duty 3 has better graphics, a better storyline, better sounds (not soundtrack, Halos is amazing) and better characterization. I hated the Halo 3 storyline.

Once again, just for fun

First let me just say, I agree with you, but am just debating for fun.

You have a point when you say that Call of Duty has a better story line and better graphics. But both only apply in campaign. I've played the multiplayer mode, and I was pretty disappointed. Not only are the graphics a lot worse, but the gameplay itself is no fun at all. This is Halo's strong point, and is something that outweighs bad graphics and story lines.

Halo multiplayer is easy to use and is never the same twice. You get your own customizable characters, and you get to pick just about all the settings you could imagine. They even let you edit the maps. That's pretty sweet. Even though Call of Duty has a few cool features, like airstrikes (which are also hard to use), Halo's easiness, accessibility, and flexibility make it far superior to Call of Duty.

Multiplayer is what makes Halo better than Call of Duty. Don't get me wrong, the campaign is awesome for it, but once you finish, its just the same old thing. Halo's multiplayer is versatile and just more fun.

You would be right to say Halo's multiplayer is good, but Call of Duty 4 has customizable weapons! see, i dont give a crap what I look like in Halo cauze i cant see myself. Forge isnt that fun, because after awhile, it gets lame.
The weapon choices on COD 4 are amazing, therefore; the customizable option is better

BOth are easy to use online, and both have good graphics online, but teh Halo servers shutdown a lot more than COD 4. Only one day that i am aware of COD 4 sever was down. Halo 3 servers have been going off and on since the beginning.

Maybe it's just me, but my experience is the reverse. I didn't even know you could customize weapons, which could be just me, but is more likely because of the difficulty of the menus. I also have found that the weapons are limited in Call of Duty, and I miss not being able to customize my character. And even though you can't see yourself, I think it's cool that other people get to see your sick designs.

Call of Duty has always given me trouble (in multiplayer), while Halo has been perfect. Call of Duty is only fun in campaign mode. Because the game is so realistic it seems stupid to me to have present day Marines fighting other Marines. In a realistic war game, I expect to fight in a war; not to have some small one on one skirmish. Halo is totally make believe, so I could play however I want without a second thought as to whether this would really happen in real life.

Um yeah its create a class
well the menus in COD 4 are divided between single or multi player so i think that makes it easier
there are more guns in COD than Halo. dont make me count please
5 assault
5 mini assault
5 light assault
2 shotgun
5 sniper
plus add ons to each
halo 3 has idk how many guns but you cant change them
i say custom guns > custom looks, thus making COD 4 better
in COD 4 multi player its SAS or Marines v Terrorists or Russians i think

so you agree that COD 4 has better single player?

Honestly, how many snipers do you need? I'm sure many of those weapons are redundant and didn't need to be remodeled. So, besides the weapons customizations, there isn't much else you can change. I mean, how many times can you change an AK-47 any way?

Yes, I think that the COD campaign is much better. But once you've finished, it's not really worth playing again. Even if you up the difficulty (which I did) it's been way to hard for me to have much fun. But, yes, the first time I played it it was awesome. So my argument lies in the fact that, because you can do single-player once (and no Co-Op mode!), multiplayer is how you should judge the best game, and I think my previous statements show that Halo has the better multiplayer.

*sigh*

This debate varies A LOT.

Some people prefer CoD4 for the World War feeling and use of real weapons (Modern-Like Theme), where some like to use lasers and fly Banshees and stuff like that (Sci-Fi Like).

Really, it depends on what you like, your play style.

Personally, I like CoD4 :D

Call of Duty is hands down Better than Halo 3 because of the realism that it brings to the table that Halo 3 cannot compete with.

All i have to say is that COD 4 kills Halo 3. COD 4 is just an over all better game than Halo 3. I own both systems and have both of the games and I quit playing Halo 3 as soon as i played COD 4.

Call of duty isnt a bad game at all, but halo is much
funner to play. sure in call of duty it is more relistic
but thats the point. when you take it into the consideration
of the campaign, then i dont really care about which is better. today it all comes down to multiplayer, wich i believe halo 3 wins hands down. call of duty dosent bring the excitement that halo does its just aim point and shoot. it gets pretty repetative. halo may seem simmilar but there is so much more to it, and it takes skill to kill a skilled player. in call of duty its just shoot at the wall he is hiding behind until he dies. in halo you got to make the move on him before he does on you. i dont really care what others think but when it comes down to it, you know deep down inside you cant get the same enjoyment and thrill from cod4 as H3. i know about 50 people who bought cod4 and got bored of it after awhile and went back to halo. plz theres no reason to hate me for what i think, i mean call of duty is a good game... i like it, but its just halo is better

I am personally against COD because of the same reason you said: its more accurate. COD tries to be the most accurate it can. But, war is no game. War kills millions and scars people for life. No offense to anyone here, but I just think it is sick to make a game out of war. Just throwin it out there.
