You have to remember, Halo 1 set the standard for FPS on consoles. Their controls have been copied on it. At the time Halo 1 WAS innovative. Before that, all FPS' would let you have like a bazillion weapons and on a console its difficult to cycle through those.
I think the allure of Halo for most of the fans has to do with the story and the hero. Master Chief is the god damn coolest hero in a FPS.
You liked Killzone? See, Im just the opposite. I havent played a killzone that I did like.
And killericon is right, Halo isnt all that innovative, but it has a lot of everything that people want in an FPS, along with a good story.
