Halo 5 4th Top Rated Game on XBL

Halo 5’s sitting pretty comfortably as the 4th top rated game on XBL right now behind GTAV, Fallou 4 and Witcher III.

Congrats 343!

Alternatively, it’s also the 14th top paid, 12th most played, being beat by some really silly games like Minecraft and Blue Estate.

Do people even use ratings anymore? I didn’t think they added them to X1.

None of them matter except most played IMO granted I am still going to play no matter what. I love Halo. But player population can be a deciding factor on additional playlist, added content and stuff like that.

No it’s actually the 15th top rated game and the 12th most popular.

AAAAAND the 65th best selling this week. haha that’s pathetic.

What makes Minecraft silly?

It’s kind of a big deal.

You’re right. Money = Serious. Like Team Fortress 2, with hats and humor and a cartoonish art style making tons of money despite being a 9 year old game. Totally not silly at all.

It’s business. Business is at its heart serious.

Just sounds like you’re salty that H5 is behind Minecraft because MC isn’t worthy of being better than a Halo title.

Idk maybe it’s because minecraft has more content than Halo 5 lol. It’s actually a really fun game.

First off,

Second, I’m not talking about business. I’m talking about the game itself. It’s a silly game with bright colors and blocky textures and it’s made to be childish. Fun. Silly. Which has nothing to do with business.

Oh, sure. Star Wars Battlefront has more content than Halo 5. I’m not saying it’s not fun. But back in the day the two BIGGEST populated games were COD (MW2) and Halo. Now Halo has fallen so far back and other games have taken its place. It’s just disappointing.

Sorry that you’re not up-to-date with modern colloquialisms. I’ll try to avoid using any more in this highly professional environment.

… Which has everything to do with business. Make a product that people want (via whatever method). That is what Minecraft is, and it is a cash cow.

Be happy your in the US. The quality of matchmaking seems a hell of a lot better then it is here in Australia from the streams I’ve seen.

I think we’re talking about two different things. I didn’t mean ‘silly’ in a negative way. I meant silly as in the stylizing of the game. Compared to Halo, which is supposed to be (sci-fi) realistic and darker than, say, Minecraft.

I’m on an internet forum, not Academia. Again, you’re coming off as being pretentious.

Fair enough, we are arguing two different points. I misunderstood. I accept blame.

I so want to get ARK, and buy it now for $30 and watch it improve instead of $60 for full release

Yeah, but then you’re just encouraging more developers to release partially finished games for easy profit with the promise of finishing it eventually.

It’s a good idea in theory, but judging from what I see on the PC side of things, it does get abused. In the end, you’re paying to play test a game.

I’m not sure of how I feel about that, but don’t let me -Yoink- on your dreams.

I’m pretty sure players can’t rate them anymore. At least not as easily through the store on the console.

ARK is practically a finished game, its a steal at its current price. DayZ on the other hand is POS

A mineral should never have become a definition for an emotion in the first place.
