Well, I was the OP, so who else would have locked it?
you wouldn't believe how permissive these forums really are. threads tend to get locked once people start directly attacking each other instead of discussing things. but in general this is one of the most lightly moderated private forums you'll find anywhere.
Then tell me why my post was locked, nobody was attacking anybody.
Most likely because everything that could have been constructively stated had been stated
Somebody had said something directly to me in the last post, and I would have liked to respond to him. There was still conversation to be had.
Although I would like to point out, I thought you played good games? Why is Halo, the epitome of mediocre overhype, up there?!
Halo 1 had one of the best physics engines of its time, along with really fun, fair, gameplay that featured lots of really random "DID YOU SEE THAT?!?" moments. It was also one of the first console games to be LANed, so much so that software was developed to allow people to LAN over the internet. (the game was made before Xbox Live) I hadn't gotten into PC first person shooters yet, so I guess this would be my equivelant to most people's Counterstrike.
