The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Halo is extremely overrated. But that's just me. Glad you have something to look forward to.

    What makes it so overrated? I've been addicted ever since the orignal launched with xbox. The multiplayer is amazing. Nothing compares imo.

    Do you make it a point to come into threads about topics you don't like and make an inane comment?

    Seems like you do that in every other thread you post in.

    There is always that one person in every forum who loves being the "Forum A-Hole" and takes it way too seriously. He's like the computer geek lifter from the guido & luigi comics, safely getting into unneeded arguments behind the safety of the internet.

    Anyway, I was addicted to Halo 2 for a while in highschool, then stopped, then got addicted again over winter break. Unfortunately Halo3 comes out right when I transfer to a new college, so I'm not going to buy it, otherwise I'd get addicted to it and not meet any new people. I feel conflicted about getting it because I know it is going to be awesome, but I don't want to waste my college years playing it.

    Seems like you're making a wide overgeneralization. Congrats.

    I don't like the game either, but I wouldn't call it overrated. I think it's one of the most successful game franchises for a reason.

    I've recently been addicted to GoW.

    I find the multiplayer to be more enjoyable than that of Halo.

    GoW is good fun! I seem to be on the asia-pacific servers, the gamers here play hardcore.

    Go, Halo 3 beta

    http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php

    I don't enjoy games like Halo because I suck so bad it's a wonder the universe doesn't implode when I log in. Primarily. However, a good secondary reason is the abdunance of l33t. Hard to find a good clean mature game unless you're in a dedicated group.

    Console users think halo is great because it's the first FPS they've played. It's completely average compared to most PC games.

    Frankly, the only thing worthwhile in the game is online multiplayer. I was an addict for Halo 1 and 2 and then realized how all of them will basically be the same with one or two more levels.

    Great game. Boring levels, story line is short, and easy to beat. But, multiplayer is awesome. I find that purchasing supplements now is/was better than owning the game and playing and purchasing the online account.

    Halos ok, but nothing that motivates me to purchase a 360 to play it the same as the previous halo's didn't motivate me to get an original xbox.

    Looks like a half decent game though, and it will be successful

    There's another Halo thread already. Lots of people are excited about it.

    Everytime I want to jump on Halo 2(like now), I think of what I could be doing. Reading some good articles, plannin meals out for later maybe, or just reading a book. Although there are always better things to do, some fun to goof off once in a while is nice.

    Halo 3 should be alot more fun and not as frustrating because they seemed to have fixed alot of the problems in Halo 2 that made it very unfair. Such as the sword, noob combo, human sniper rifle, rockets, and magnetism. Supposedly the Carbine is going to be the next "go to" weapon.

    What? How was the sniper rifle, rockets or even the sword unfair? There were always ways of taking out the person who had those things with other weapons. I dont know what you mean by magnetism. But yes I do agree with the noob combo, that **** is annoying.

    The beta has been alright so far. Not really much different from Halo 2, other than a few new weapons and a little better graphics. Oh well, a nice change from GOW, that game is getting old.

    I personally prefer multiplayer of Halo2 to gears of war. Maybe it's just because I'm so used to/addicted to halo 2. So how is the beta? I'm assuming you can't play it online?
