I miss Reach when it was popular

I know Reach is still fairly popular as the third most popular title on Xbox right now, but I miss when it was all everyone spoke of. In Mid September everyone asked "Did you get Reach too?" and "Did you finish the Reach Campaign? What happens?" Now, all everyone talks about it Black Ops or Marvel vs Capcom 3. We once had one million players playing Reach at one time, opening day, and I can only assume how many were playing Campaign adding to those people which would probably be another million. Reach sold 2.2 Million pre orders along with another million in the following week. We were popular, I missed that time. What happened to it? Why did the popularity leave us? Remember Halo 2? Remember how 77% of Live played it? It was the game to get. Remember Halo CE? People bought an Xbox just for that game. Halo 3 didn't really have such a big impact but was one of the most popular titles for 2 years straight even after Modern Warfare 2 came out. Reach made no real impact aside from a month of limelight and suddenly crushed by Black Ops. I predict the Halo CE remake will fault just like Reach, why? It is being released the same month as Modern Warfare 3. This isn't good in the slightest, Gears of War was smart, they delayed their title so it didn't have to deal with competition. I know the CE remake will be released in honor of the 10 years but it won't last long with Modern Warfare 3 coming out a few weeks later. Will Halo ever grace Xbox as most talked about title again? Pray Halo fans. 343 must save Halo from certain destruction. "You can't stop the key from turning." - Gravemind

Where on earth did you get the 50 million figure from? There are only 60 million people in Britain - don't be silly. [/quote] He's probably high, Reach at most sold about 6 million copies by now.

Dont get me wrong im not a CoD fan at all. I never played it onlin EVER. I Have how ever played the campigns for those game and to be fair. They were alot better IMO then Reachs story line. Now wait before you flame me. That is jsut my opinion. Im not saying it sucked for everyone. Its just not what i wanted to see.

  • I disagree. I prefer less people playing the game. Who cares if everyone talks about Black Ops, you have the freedom to ignore them and not participate in the chat. Let the CoD fanboys do and talk about what they want, I just want to play some freaking Halo: Reach.

  • Halo Reach is a ok game and Im betting if the servers shut down every one that prefers playing it over CoD would go right back to Halo 3 and wouldnt even complain. This is simple, Alot of people were expect top of the line cutting edge game play out of bungie like Halo CE and Halo2. The fact is they arent smart enought to give us that or just coulnd be bothered. For alot of this game they dusted off Halo 3 and ODST and made it shiney. Nerfed some things while making others over powered. Halo Reach is not the "Great" Game we were all expecting.

  • Guys, you hardly have to worry about Modern Warfare 3. Its being made by the company that made the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games. Besides, I hear people saying how their sick of cod. On top of that theres a alot of people saying how Activision is making cod the new Guitar Hero/Tony Hawk by making a cod game every year. The game that will likely be the best shooter of the year will be Battlefield 3. For good reasons. [Edited on 02.21.2011 12:19 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SpeedyBlueDude Halo had it's time to shine as the 'Popular game series', now it's CoDs turn... for better or worse. And in 3-6 years, it'll be another games turn. Honestly, am I the only one who see's Halo vs CoD like Mario vs Sonic all over again? Just exclude the fact that Mario and Sonic had their own systems. (By the way Halo is Sonic...) (and CoD will HOPFULLY never get as big as Mario)[/quote] This is a popularity thing, I think this is true though Mario>zelda>everything else.

  • I'll complain about the popularity when I can't find a game to get matched in. Personally, I don't really care if it isn't #1 on the Xbox LIVE top-played as long as it is still relevant in my gaming life, and the other 15 people's gaming lives I get matched up with in BTB.

  • OK so think about it back when halo 2 came out what other games where there to play? certainly no "amazing" cod games. also most people tend to play what their friends play and for some reason many prepubescent boys and "hardcore" fps'ers love CoD and since people buy what their friends want they get CoD

  • no, it's called COD and it's an unstoppable juggernaut not bungie's fault. Reach could've been hyped more though. Where was the special mountain dew flavor, huh? No master chief and the fact that noble team was lacking in personality (chief didn't need it bc he was so badass)damaged its chances

  • Why can't bungie just say, "Hey, we wanted to do something different, it don't work out so well, we're sorry." Why couldn't have they just done all of that different stuff on Aerospace instead of using the Halo series as a testbed?

  • Reach is a bad game, it's no coincidence that not too many play it when compared to the previous Halos.
