Arcade shooters are always more skill heavy games than realism, or twitch, shooters.

noobtubes, grenades and the P90, every crappy game has unbalanced weapons. Halo isn't any worse.

Ether you just took a quick trip to gamefaqs, or your just a troll
p90's are alright
grenades aren't the issue
And theres nothing wrong noobtubes, its just dumb to walk around with them

And for the past two weeks COD 4 is the most played game on live

So stop being LAME and don't post here again

Insulting forum administrators: The smartest thing to do when you don't know how to be quiet.

I'd make that a motivational but I'm lazy.

What forum administrators?
Don't tell me how to act when I'm not the one who is being a troll

You're employing a fanatical/fanboyish attitude and flaming Swift, a forum administrator, as he attempts to intelligently discuss this, evidently failing due to the level of intellect at the other end of the discussion.

WTF he said he never even played call of duty
Then he talks about skill being an impossible argument, BUT HE STILL VOTES

If he really believed in what he wrote about skill, he would not have voted at all

I'm not a fanboy, I play both games with my friends all the time
I just wanted to know what other people who played these game thought

From the poll everyone else thinks call of duty take more skill

I think you mods were just bored, so you decided to support a troll

I voted before I had thought it through. I voted based on my opinion that it is fact that arcade shooters are always more skill intensive than realism shooters. Halo being an arcade shooter, is therefore more skill intensive than CoD, being a pseudo sim shooter. I don't need to have played either game to form that opinion on that basis, irrelevant of that, my vote is cast.

My argument's for agreeing on the definition of the terms are also sound, irrelevant of weather I've played either game. Contextual definitions must be agreed upon before opinion on the issue can reach any validity. Phrasing things differently makes them mean entirely different things to different people. Without clarifying the phrasing a valid opinion is impossible.

That being said, don't post polls if you don't want to know people's opinions, or you get banned and your polls get locked. Ok?

[edit] BTW, I'm the site admin here, I get to decide what is and isn't trolling.

lol
I don't know what to say
If the poll was "Which type of shooter requires more skill"
Sim or arcade
Your opinion and your commmets would be most welcome, but that was not the poll

This poll as for people who played the games
You said that you did not know it even had mp lol
That means you know nothing about it
When ever I think of sim I think of Rainbow six, Ghost Recon, or flashpoint

A troll is someone who goes to a thread and starts doing some to piss people off

You came to this thread and saw that everyone agreed that cod4 requires more skill, so you decided that you were going to be different to to have some fun

Then you have to nerve to say that you did not even know cod4 had mp WTF
And now I know why none of the other two or three mods did not say anything

The way you write
I don't think you are even a die heart Halo player, you seem too smart for that

This one line is more intentionally offensive than the sum of SwiftSpear's posts - and he has 4977 of them.

Meh, I think you should try it swift before you judge. I thought the same thing until I gave it a shot.

TBH, the thought that halo 3 requires more skill than a PC FPS is laughable.
