Why do so many people hate Halo?

Why do so many people say they hate Halo? The most popular games in the Xbox franchise sure attracts a lot of criticism. Why? Why hate the greatest games ever made? (Not talking about cricket either...)

Some people are trolls. Others think it's cool to hate. Others just seem to hate Halo. The moment something Halo related is posted on a website out come the commentators with their venom.
Halo Sux! Xbox Suxk. Halo is for fags. Halo CE ruled but 3 sucked tits man.
I see such a comment, sigh, and wonder if breastfeeding should be made mandatory.

Here's an in a discussion about the Game Informer Info - this from a guy who says he is going to buy the game and play it lots:
Whatever changes and updates they make, it will still be Halo. After this game I really hope Bungie re-grows its testicles and tries something new and innovative.
That one was kinda passive agressive eh? Despite the leak suggesting there's plenty of innovation to be found in Reach and the almost universal knowledge Bungie is going to do a new IP game, the dude still mindless made his or her comment.
The Halo franchise is finished, and this game signals its demise. Fanboys will line up days prior to buy this crap only to realize that it is an inferior product. I would play Superman 64 again before I ever bought another Halo game.
That was just a mild comment though. Let's check out some real Halo Haters shall we?
Halo 3 sucks.
I liked Halo 1, i thought Halo 3 was rubbish
The Halo franchise has to be one of the most over rated in gaming history.

No doubt fanboys will continue to suck Halo's dick.
halo reach will suck as bad as the last 3 halo's... halo 1 was original and groundbreaking ever since then it's the same old stuff with no innavation horrible vechicle controls and muddy cartoonish graphics but still people eat it up, who knows.
This is a charmer discussing the Halo Reach trailer (paraphrased):
Fuck this game if it tells the story once again through flash backs. It will be mediocre just like Halo3:ODST. What does that say about Halo3:ODST. It just wasn't as well received because of its story telling and it was just boring as hell. Loved the other ones a lot more. Firefight was the only thing the game had going for it. I have a real funny feeling we are going to see the same exact kind of game as ODST unfortunately so fuck BUNGIE!.
What cracks me up though is that these comments are generally found at the end of articles that involve a discussion about Halo in some fashion. If these people hate Halo so much, why do they even read the articles in the first place? Especially if its about a new Halo, that they say they won't play!?

Then there's always the guy that weighs in with XBOX sux, PS3 FTW!

Halo Haters please feel free to leave hateful comments.....

First! I don't hate Halo, in fact, I'd be the one commenting on the Haters (in a non-noobish manner). I just want the war to end, or at least for my "side" to mature up enough to act as opposed to ramble on about opinons. If you have nothing good to say, there isn't any point in saying it at all.

I Love Halo 1 and 2.. but Halo 3 was So bad i didnt even Finish the Game. Infact i Gave the Game away. Online Gaming was Horrible. Now Halo Reach is out and i still dont know if i want to buy it. Maybe People Hating were Once Halo Fans Until the Big Let down of Halo 3.

It's very simple. People (the ones who hate everything Halo) hate Halo because they don't have the skill, patience and/or gaming intelligence to appreciate the best fps games ever made.

but i totally agree with that guy who was moaning about ODST. that was the shittiest halo ever, i didn't even think there would be another halo after that, and when there was i almost didn't buy it. quite ironic how the best ever halo (reach) came right after the worst one

Halo is very overrated. There is nothing ground breaking about it at all. There were many games before halo that used the same ideas/weapons, etc. Unreal Tournament (Epic Games) blows Halo out of the water, and it came out years before! Most people just buy into this game because they haven't played anything better before. The only remotely fun thing about Halo is and always will be the mediocre multiplayer. Reach is how this series should have started, and they should have gone from there. Because even Reach is only decent.

I am very confused on why people continue to hate on halo even though call of duty is worse. It's the same game with different guns and an ok campaign, + they only threw in a horde type mode because it was popular (and yes, halo also did do the same thing, copy horde mode). Yes some bits of halo are the same, But what do you expect?! They came out with forge which made multiplayer fun as hell. Every game can't do much about their multiplayer because all the popular modes are already in other games.
