I think all the games you mentioned are great so it'd be easier to help you if you made it easier.
LOL got it!
I'll start with what I like about the early Halo games...
Original Halo - It was the sh*t ... lol, everything about the game was good until someone killed you across the map with the pistol. I think it was a great way for the first person shooter developers to REALLY break into the industry. Before this you have this game over here and this game over there ... and then there was Halo.
Halo 2 - I enjoyed it because it was online. But that was about it. I disliked the open map style on nearly every map enabling everyone and their brother to snipe their way to the top. Also the unrealistic weapons was a bit of a turn off.
MW 2 & MW3 - The realistic weapons and rules of the game I really liked. The types of games gives you the ability to not be bored with the same thing over and over again if you don't want to be. There is a level of difficulty that you must master in order to use a type of weapon efficiently both in the game and in your mind. I found with the unrealistic weapons in Halo gave you an unfair edge in some situations.
Black Ops 1 - The graphics in this one were a real turn off for me. I also felt that the movement of the character was very unrealistic. Otherwise its the same as MW 2 & 3 in my eyes.
Battlefield 3 - Too team oriented for me. For some this is great, but I like to sit down and play for an hour and then move on to something else. I don't like to plan what I'm going to do in the map, just like to play and this game simply can't be played in this manor. I'm sure I would love it if I enjoyed that type of gaming.
Honestly given how much I like the realistic game play of MW (I will say that I felt Battlefield 3 was more realistic than MW) I'm leaning towards Black Ops. But, that's exactly why I'm here.
Hope this helps.
