Hello, I;ve been with this franchise since 2001. Lately Ive been seeing all kinds of news with Halo 5, and honestly i have to say its saddening.
To me it looks like 343i is trying to turn Halo into their own thing, and to be completely honest, if you wanted your own IP, then make your own IP.
Halo has been going down hill since abuot 2007, and severely dropped in 2012. There could be many reasons for this, FPS market being flooded and the drastic changes being made are two that come to mind. The first one is entirely wrong and ill give examples of why. The game runescape, it was huge, but now most of the player base is bots. They tried to change the game to meet these new " standards " in gaming, and yet the lost many players. World of Warcraft hasnt changed ( as much as runescape did ) and yet it still remains on top of the MMO market after ten years.
Also, like many Halo 4 videos they have pro players in videos trying to say that the game is good, and its all fun. Well, that was the complete opposite with Halo4. The game was garbage. It pains me to see some of you defending the gameplay of what was shown. It honestly looked so gimmicky. You can say that Halo needs to change all you want, but the truth is that it hurts it. I doubt Halo 5 will sell well, and if it does it’ll be because of the name alone. But, like Halo 4, the population will drastically decrease, and once again well be left alone with a game that please almost no one.
I’m not saying remove it all though. Your hanging ledge thing looked cool for campaign ( hell even custom games ) but please keep all this gimmicky new stuff, out of multiplayer. If you REALLY have to, make a playlist for it.
This franchise literally started from the bottom, but actually rose and inspired a generation. But in the last few years its has been battered and raped. This franchise means a lot to some people, and it honestly annoys me that 343i think that they’re changing things for the better. They are literally changing things for the sake of change ( energy sword, BR sounds ). These changes aren’t needed.
But sadly, most of the users on this forum are below average intelligence and blindly agree with 343 and claim anyone who doesn’t is a fanboy of Call of Duty, or claim that we should have things because " l0l spurtens can do et in boks n stuf so we shuld 2 l0l ". Lore shouldnt dictate -Yoink- gameplay.
Change your questionable ways and make an actual good, or continue and in a few years have no franchise left. Up to you.
@The mods on this forum - You are literally the worst mods i have ever seen on a forum. You delete posts that disagree with 343 or have a negative view on changes made to this game. Regardless if they are a troll or not. You remind me of -Yoink!-’s.
Good bye Halo community, most of you are -Yoinking!- idotic but to the few that are actually intelligent, ill miss you.
