There are twenty-four weapons not counting different grenade types and melee. Halo's just a dumbed down game for the console crowd anyways, not sure
why people get so excited about it. The fact that Halo 3 sold more copies than Bioshock and Portal back in 2007 says a lot about gamers.
Most PC FPS's don't even have that many weapon, and Halo is arguably the most complete first person shooter on a console.
And Bioshock wasn't even that good, its inferior in almost every way to system shock 2(except graphically.)
And Portal didn't sell well because it was a new Intellectual property.
The only thing Halo 3 selling more than Portal and Bioshock is telling me is that the Halo series is more established franchise like Mario, Zelda, and
Halo isn't a simplified shooter, its one of the more complicated ones out there.
Its a colorful, bright, skillful shooter in a sea of brown and gray shooters, people are turned off by its learning
curve. It only takes 4 shots to the head to kill a man but to the average Call of Duty player it can take an entire clip. It is one of the last of the
popular Arena shooters out there right now with games like Team Fortress 2 and Unreal Tournament 3(if its even alive right now)
