A question asked by gamers everywhere; Which is better Halo or Call of Duty? If you are deciding which new game to get then you definitely need an answer to this.
In the FPS,first person shooter, gaming community many gamers argued for and against Halo or COD,Call of Duty, but there is no definite answer. It all depends on your preference and your community of gaming friends. Halo is a futuristic first person shooter game and it has a gross of almost $3.4 billion for the games alone and is only available on Xbox consoles. COD is also a first person shooter game but it takes place in many different eras such as WW2, the near future, and 2025 and its gross for all games is about $10 billion.
A couple of students at Samueli Academy tried answering the question of which game is better.They all said they prefer Call of Duty for many various reasons. For Sam Boxeth’s first reason, he said “First off it has much more variety of weaponry”. Call of Duty often updates their weaponry each game. For his second reason he said, “Halo is a Xbox only games and I have a PC so I can't play it”.
For Kevin Lopez’s reason he said “I prefer Call of Duty because it is the only game I can play on my console due to Halo being Xbox only”. For Zach Sanchez’s reason he said, “I prefer Call of Duty because it has more realistic features. It isn't too realistic but it is more realistic than Halo”. In an poll by International Gamers Network, Halo won by taking 82% of the votes for overall gameplay. Halo also won for multiplayer, graphics, and campaign. As you can see the students at Samueli Academy do not agree with the consensus.
Even though Call of Duty has 23 games, Halo still wins over the general audience with their 8 games. Some people may like Call of Duty better because it has zombies and you can play it on any console. While others may say they like Halo because of it's graphics and it's campaign, story mode. It really matters on what details you prefer because everyone has different opinions from each other.
