I’ve been playing Halo since Combat Evolved, I’ve been in this franchise for my entire life. I was born March of 2000, started playing Halo CE at 4 years old I’ve played every Halo since. Halo Infinite is the most fun, most fluid, balanced i’ve played. The Academy is an amazing and very helpful addition, The 4v4 Arena maps and modes are super fun and competitive and the sandbox is incredible. There’s no one weapon that’s too op, every gun has a chance to shine in it’s own role. The Big Team Battle is -Yoinking!- amazing. I haven’t had this much fun gaming in a long time. Halo 4 previously had my favorite BTB, but Halo Infinite takes the cake. the map design is mind-blowing, every gun has a chance to shine and is viable, the loot caves are such a simple but -Yoinking!- incredible addition. The vehicles feel super balanced and fun to fight and drive. the equipment is so so sick. My first night playing BTB and i’ve already made memories I won’t forget. And this is just the flight! I get so excited thinking about all the players with their unique colors, armor combos, armor effects, rolling alone or with a squad. The battles all feel like such a contained engagement but still part of a larger whole, and the new Total Control mode is one of my new favorite modes in Halo. I love the way special vehicles are announced via comms and are dropped by pelicans. Seeing them fly in and racing to the drop is so exhilarating. The music, the maps, the CE Forerunner towers, Weapons, armors, squad mechanics, ping system, vehicles, equipment, loot caves, challenges, battlepass, everything is so badass.
I cannot wait for December 8th. I’m gonna absolutely lose myself in this game
