Woah. Hold on there. Halo: CE and COD4 were very VERY good games. They probably easily crack the top 50 if not top 25.
Halo: CE isn't very replayable.
I've been staying out of these threads for a reason, but I had a pretty good talk the other day about Halo and why it's not what it used to be.
Basically, Halo came from an era in shooters where two practices were very common in FPS games: A) Stupidly huge health bars, and B) no aiming down the sights. For cripe's sake just look at the assault rifle. It's got a magazine of 60 fucking bullets and you had to spit pretty much the whole thing at a dude to actually kill him. Nowadays, most shooters hold the exact opposite standards, which makes Halo and it's derivatives seem like much stranger games in comparison. Which they are.
However, Halo did that formula better than anything else at the time, and in several ways mastered that specific genre of shooters. The problem is that the genre never changed, and shooters are doing fairly innovative things. I guess Halo 4's coming out in the same, tired-out formula though so who knows if that'll be any fun. Here's hoping I'm wrong.
I guess I have to add my 2 cents in, and I'm going to add Half-Life, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, Resident Evil 4, Dark Souls, Deus Ex, Super Smash Bros. series, Command & Conquer, Heroes of Might and Magic III, Megaman series, Armored Core series and the Uncharted series of games. In no particular order.
