there is one thing that matters above all, and that is HITSCAN gameplay. non-hitscan gameplay is stone-age FPS gaming where CONNECTION SPEED matters more than SKILL. its abysmal, and unarguable, so lets move on to the MEAT of this post.
OPTIONS / TWEAKING / SHAPE YOUR OWN HALO EXPERIENCE
what do i mean by this?
just how it sounds. what 343 needs to do, in order to GUARANTEE halo 4 is a wide-spread MASSIVE success is ONE SIMPLE THING. give us the OPTIONS to have WHATEVER MECHANICS we want.
these would include, but not be limited to:
-damage (in numbers, with health and shields = numbers also, with options to tweak them)
-rate of fire
-bloom %, if bloom = X, headshot capable = no
-headshot bleedthru yes / no
-bleedthru POST PATCH HALO 3 melee system
-button combos on / off (double melee, BXR, RRYB, etc.)
and lets get rid of the increments on options, please. im tired of seeing 100%, 110%, 120%, when what you really need is 114%, as an example. let us PICK THE NUMBER, and not go in increments of 10, or 5, or even 2.
343, the MORE OPTIONS you give us, the MORE CHANCE there is for this game to be amazing.the possibilities are endless, and if you give us the tools we need to shape whatever experience we desire, we can make the game play AS WE WANT IT TO PLAY without REQUIRING A TITLE UPDATE FROM YOU GUYS to fix POORLY IMPLEMENTED GLOBALLY-DISTRIBUTED MECHANICS.
