Halo is my favorite game series of all time. But the fact that TMCC still has bugs and long load times, I’ve gone back to playing Call of Duty. Yeah, I’m not going to say CoD is a bad series. People like it, it sells, and people seem to have fun playing it, so please don’t talk crap about it in this Forum because that’s not why I put this out there.
I’m not saying people should abandon Halo for CoD, because that would be the dumbest f*cking thing I can say. I’m just saying, I enjoy CoD more then Halo right now. Although the Halo 5 Beta was probably the most fun I’ve had in Halo in a long time. Sorry that I enjoyed Halo 4 and 5 by the way “Halo Purists.”
Here is the reason I’m really starting to not like Halo… The overall opinion of the CoD fan base is they are all 9-14 annoying, sh*t talkers… But in the most recent years I’ve noticed a lack of people talking in game lobbies. This includes CoD and Halo. But in CoD you can’t kill your teammates. In Halo, you can. I’ve noticed the players in Halo act more like children betraying for weapons, splattering, and shooting teammates. It’s really annoying. It’s really destroying my Halo experience because everyone is acting like the stereotypical CoD fan base gameplay wise.
On the flip side, the Halo community on Waypoint Forums is very rude and hostile towards each other. It’s honestly so bad. No one can accept anyone else’s opinions, and if you try to defend yourself or something you like, people will always try and tear it down. The biggest thing I notice is that the “superior Halo 2 fans” will talk sh*t on any fan of Halo 4 or 5. You don’t have to like the game, but please don’t tear someone’s opinions apart because they enjoy a game. Also, the overall competitive players, hate the casual players. Sorry they aren’t on your skill level, I get it, it sucks. But don’t try and exclude them from Halo, a lot of casuals play for fun! There’s nothing wrong with that.
In the end, I don’t really see myself getting interested in Halo for awhile. Their are people ruining gameplay, and when I come to the forums, it’s just hatred. It makes me sad to see the game I love have a fan base so divided, immature players, and a still broken game. Until then, I love ya Halo, but me and CoD are having some good times. Also, sorry any CoD haters, or people that are going to criticize me.
