> Hey everyone, I just wanted to make a thread about this since I haven’t seen any recently. The main idea for this thread is for everyone to state why/what they like about the Halo games and everything associated with Halo. And I would also love to hear your first experience with Halo too!
> So please! I’d love to hear everyones reasons for liking halo and their first experience with the game/books.
well… halo has changed quite a bit. with halos 1 and 2, it was the constant understanding that nomatter how INCREDIBLE that i possibly got, i could still progress to get EVEN MORE AMAZING at the game. the skill gaps on those 2 games was TREMENDOUS, to say the very least. i own 3 halo 1 copies, and 3 halo 2 copies currently, for lanning.
as for halo 3, it was still very fun to play, and i enjoyed it quite a bit. unfortunately my disc got scratched so i cant play it anymore :C i’d get a new one, but there really isnt much reason to because the net coding for that game wasnt that great.
and then you have halo reach, which i dont even play anymore because its so -Yoink!- halos 1, 2 and 3 had mechanics that let good players win. in halo reach you have things like spamming, that enable people who shoot worse to somehow (who came up with this anyways) win encounters, even tho they shot worse. literally could not be more unintuitive here. then you have grenades that are SUPER easy to use, they stick to the ground, have a short fuse time, huge damage, and large blast radius. then you have no-bleed melees that, for whatever reason, remove the viability of shooting from some close combat situations.
so, halo 1, 2 i played for skill-based gameplay. halo 3 i played for fun, and i dont play halo reach because its terrible.
