You could replace Black Ops 2 with anything and the answer is still Halo 4.

Neither

Halo 4. And I haven't played a lick of Blops Deux.

Halo 4, loved the campaign and Spartan Ops got me hooked. Dem graphics:o

I do like the Black Ops series though. As tired as I am of COD, I really enjoyed the first one.

Good Question.. i have both and i cant decide which is better because im having fun with both games.. need more time.

Halo 4 is a lot better.

COD is hide and seek with guns. Halo 4 is a little strategic with legitimate gun battles. Halo 4 hands down.

I haven't really played Black Ops 2 because I'm having so much fun with Halo 4. So for now, Halo 4

Actually, I would argue that 2007 was a worse year for cows. 2012 is the second worst year for a cow. 2012 has been a sh!tty year for lems as well.. equally as much if not worse than for a cow. Its just that the 360 has had so many bad years (2008,2009, 2010 and 2011) in a row that this one doesn't seem THAT bad. 2012 has been a weak year for the Wii and surprisingly weak for the PC too. Multiplats have been mediocre this year. As I said.. the worst year in gaming history. There isn't a single game from 2012 that would be nominated for GOTY in any other year this generation. :lol: :lol:

Halo 4.

Halo 4 has more variety and the game isn't fundamentally broken like CoD is. I dont know how a game can get away with a broken spawn system in 2012
#25 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Black Ops 2 for the campaign and zombies.

Halo 4 for multiplayer.

Black Ops 2's multiplayer is pretty much ass right now.

Terrible PC ports, more Halo and Forza.. /facepalm. I hardly consider lems getting the games I played last year but with one quarter the graphical fidelity "lems having a good year". Like I said, this year has been terrible for everyone, and if we're including ports, then PC got Dark Souls = a 9.5 game....

No way. Halo 4 doesn't even match Halo 3 and Reach in content and variety. Black Ops 2 wins this by a landslide.

You got the campaign with a story that branches off into a surprising number of different paths, zombies mode with an open world map and 3 different modes, multiplayer with 14 different maps (Halo 4 only has like what, 8?), a plethora of different matchtypes, and a new loadout system that offers near infinite possibilites.

Yea, and the PC port of Dark Souls was the worst PC port in gaming history. You literally have to mod it for it to be any better than the console versions. But yes, ports do count. Because all those games aren't on PS3, regardless of whether they were PC games first. If we're talking lems vs cows, lems had a far better year.

Like what?

Sprint being its own mapping. Sprint in Reach was well mapped it was an armor ability, it gave you a strategic choice. Should I grab jet pack or sprint? now you can have both.

DMR = 3 headshot kill vs BR= 4, 3 round bursts headshot kill.

Resupply and extra grenade damage.

Boltshot

Que the blah blah your bad at the game and its easy to combat these problems blah blah:P

I don't remember. What I do remember was 90% of the weapons sounding dull as fvck in previous Halo games.

there was only one pc port on that list and the witcher 2 still looked pretty great despite running on a 7 year old console. also, you're focusing on one game and ignoring the rest of the list. ignorance is bliss i guess. fact is, compared to ps3 and wii the 360 has had a pretty good year.

DMR & BR are both 5 shot kills. 4 to the body, one to the head. Only time this is changed is with a damage boost, or if you're being teamfired.

I think it was introduced in Halo 3. It was most noticeable on a map like Valhalla. Gun shots that were far off would sound like they should (lots of echo and a crack). Now, they just turn the volume down like all other shooters. I dont know why they would remove...

Why are you so damn butthurt that the 360 hasn't had a good year since 2007? and that PS3 2008/2009/2011 was so god like and amazing? FYI, I can also claim the PS3 had a great year with Twisted Metal, Journey, Closure, Ratchet & Clank Collection, Resident Evil, Chronicles, Starhawk, ++ more. See how I just made the PS3 sh!t on your precious console? :lol: Despite that list of high quality games, which is better than what 360 has, its just that the PS3 has much higher standards as we were spoiled by one of the best line ups ever in 2008, 2009 and had a pretty darn awesome 2011, while the lem camp has had a god awful 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

Halo has a Campaign, Spartan Ops, Multiplayer with more Playlists and 343 is adding more every week, Forge, Custom games, bigger maps with vehicles, smaller maps for fast paced slayer, different load outs as well as being able to customize your spartan to your liking. The gameplay alone has more variety than Blops2, you cant have big maps with vehicles in a CoD game. I think there are 13 maps and im confident 343 will add free forge maps later on like bungie did with reach as well as the map packs.
