No Aim Smoothing (Aim Acceleration) please.
This is the topic.
The more accurately a game represents your movements, the more submersed and connected you feel to the game.
I am a huge Halo fan and have been ever since I brought an xbox1 and got Halo CE with it. I just loved the feeling of being in complete control. In CE and H2 you seemed to always have an option while in combat and always had a chance to out-shoot your opponent if you were confident enough and skilled enough.
H3 was a let down for me though, that feeling of freedom and control had vanished and I couldn’t explain it, I just felt really awkward in that game and therefor never enjoyed it to the extent I did with the previous two. It wasn’t until I read a forum post about Aim Acceleration that I properly understood why I felt that way, this post can be found here: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/291139-aim-acceleration/
It fully explains what Aim Acceleration is so I would advise clicking on it if you don’t know what it is.
Halo Reach then came out and I was excited for it, the Beta seemed to have less Aim Acceleration than H3 so hopes were high. But now that I have been playing the game for a few months now, I can see that there is still too much. My aim still feels sluggish and I still don’t get that feeling of freedom and control that I did in the first two games.
Please 343 if you are like bungie and want this in the game, at least give us an option to turn it off in custom games. This single feature will make this game so much better as loyal fans like myself will be able to recreate the classic enjoyment that we once had in previous titles.
