What We Love About Halo

Well, I know there’s a lot of hate and discord around Waypoint lately, so I thought it might be time to balance this a little.

What is it we love about this series?
What keeps us coming back for more?
What is thrilling or inspiring?

Quote any game, any feature, any story, character, weapon or trope. Keep it positive!

For my part:
From day one of my Halo experience, I have loved the unique nature of the weapons. Often when playing CoD games, I find myself a little disappointed every now and then at how similar most weapons are, outside of fire rates, scoping distances and cosmetics.
Every weapon in Halo has a unique function and purpose, making each one important or useful in some application.
We can argue the finer points of AR loadouts and variants in CoD, but where else are you gonna be able to use a freakin’ Needler?
