The science of why everyone hates new halos

Everyone probably will think this is boring as -Yoink-, but it may be a slight cause.
First ten minutes anyway.

No social playlists.

That’s the only reason I have any disdain for this game.

People are A LOT more positive about this halo than they were the last couple.

People dislike new Halos because they’re all worse than the old ones… significantly worse.
343 has made the worst Halos by a landslide, and they show no signs of stopping.

They’re doing weekend playlists actually.

Don’t you hate it when people say their opinion as if it were a fact?

Honestly it’s really annoying…

Then stop playing. Return your copy and stop playing Halo.

Halo 5 is nothing like 4, it has the skill gap, required teamwork, map control etc. from past games and it’s damn fun.

Reviews jive with that theory, as does the bulk of anecdotal sentiments I’ve heard.
These Halos are the worst because 343i always get some major aspect horribly wrong.
Halo 4 had a fantastic story but terrible MP and maps, only Haven and DLC maps were decent.
Halo 5 has better maps than 4, not quite iconic yet, but the campaign is the worst of the numbered titles and shorter too.

still, it’s their opinion and not fact (even though the majority of people might agree with the opinion) and many people like me enjoy the game.

An agreed opinion by a chunk of the population, but still an opinion.

The biggest thing that hurt Halo 4 was the release of COD:BO2 just 2 weeks after Halo 4’s release(COD:BO2 still stands with the record of total sales of all the COD titles). The game thing is going to happen with Halo 5 and BO3… Both Halo games should have launched the last week in Sept or first week in October.

True. CoD is always gonna eat away at sales but BO2 was actually a fantastic CoD unlike MW3, Ghosts and Advanced Warfare imo. Plus it had the most popular competetive scene of any CoD, one of the very few CoDs that weren’t just casual pub stomp games.

I was in the BO3 beta, and this is just my opinion of course, but I really felt it to be mediocre, and more Titanfall-esque than previous Black ops titles, I don’t know how the community will respond to that. I see Star Wars as more of a threat.
I think Halo 5 has multiplayer potential, needs some tweaks. Shame about the campaign but at least 343i have the MP blueprint going into Halo 6 and hopefully will work out the campaign from our feedback.

Its a combination of nostalgia and aging.

When we enjoyed the first few Halo games most of us long-time fans were kids/teens. Now we’re over-critical bitter adults that scrutinize everything we see with a rose tinted laser beam. Its not that new Halo games are inherently bad, we just expect so much out of them. We want them to be new and fun but at the same time exactly how we remember them, frankly its impossible to please us. If they change to much we hate it, if it doesn’t change enough we hate it.

The reason new fans love Halo is because they’re enjoying it for what it is, not trying to hold it up to unreasonable expectations they think it needs to exceed.

Sadly true, not sure why they keep ignoring the fan-base, not how sure there going to recover from this.

I wasn’t aware that EVERYONE hated the new Halos. I wasn’t even aware that I hated the new Halos. Am I not a part of everyone? Where does this EVERYONE stat come from?

This is exactly how it is from my perspective as well. No matter what it fails someone.

For me campaign was ok, but still fun with four player co-op throughout. I am playing again on single player to hear everything and find everything and I am catching things i didn’t before.

Multiplayer is a blast for me, i am enjoying the competitive nature but would enjoy social playlists.

Weekend playlists? You’re happy with weekend playlists?

It’s atrocious that we were given casual playlists for 4 other halo games -permanently- and now we’re being fed scraps and people are content with that.

simple…people HATE change…343 needs to make money so they have to target a younger generation.
