Different games, different fan bases.
okay but the COD grand final was actually a banger
I think people enjoy CoD and Halo because they are casual shooters and are not taken too seriously.
CoD plays 3 different game modes, and has very extensive history just like CS. And Halo arguably has the greatest esports players ever in the OGRE twins and Snip3down.
Nothing wrong with a casual game. Not everyone wants to spend every hour of their gaming time on a sweaty grind.
Same with other hobbies like golf. Some people want to spend 20 hours a week at the driving range and that's nice, but I just want to enjoy a round every now and then
Who cares?! People like what they like
Idk why people play cs? So boring and old. No movement, no ads, weapons are the same for eternity, graphics are bad, etc
halo real foundational esport since 2001
COD is easy to understand. When my brother warches CS with me, I have to explain something every round basically. When I watch LoL with him, he has to explain something to me every 4 seconds.
The entire game of Call of Duty can be understood in a matter of seconds.
Halo is just goated.
Console gaming is huge here. CoD & Halo are 2 of the biggest fps’s. Especially CoD.
It is what it is.
at least NA actually makes games and innovates
also halo 5, 2 and infnitie multiplayer is fire
tbh idk why anyone would watch it. people play cause it's casual and easy to pick up, even as a new player. certain mechanics have high skill cap though and make it rewarding to play a lot. many nostalgic games for many teens and young adults
Halo is pretty different to most other arena dm-style shooters, I don't think it's comparable to most other fps games, purely bcs the perfect AND average 1v1 ttk for the primary weapons (DMR/BR in their respective games) is substantially higher than other fps games. I think that makes Halo pretty unique, and makes the game quite team focused cus team shotting is really strong. I guess that appeals to Americans (and other anglophones) I guess? But it also helps that it's mainly a console game and generally speaking English-speaking countries gravitate towards consoles for whatever reason.
