With all respect to everyone that comes on this site to complain about the state of Halo 5 in anyway, I’m not saying that your opinion doesn’t count, but it simply doesn’t matter…You are just another wave in the endless waves of disgruntled & disillusioned fans of Halo.
The level of anger & frustration directed at 343i due to the failings of TMCC & the disappointments of Halo 5 is nothing short of unprecedented, & with good reason, but none of the endless complaints have made any difference at all & instead wave after wave have swept through various social media sites, review sites, fan sites, YouTube & right here on the official forums, yet what has changed? Nothing.
In the end everyone will just have to realize 1 simple thing…343i is just a business, & businesses are in business to make money, that’s all they care about…Bottom line.
343i will go with whatever decisions that will make them the most profit, so the inclusion of parkour style gameplay, boosters, jetpacks etc is the norm in today’s fps gaming industry, going against this style would risk losing the larger majority of fans to a competitor, which would in turn lose them money. Also, the inclusion of micro-transactions is a way for 343i & any game developer to keep revenue coming in.
The only way you as an individual can combat this is not commit to micro-transactions & certainly not pre-order games. If enough people do that over a long enough timeline then maybe things will change.
Just to be clear, I am in no way supporting 343i…
