> Halo is dead.
No its not. At least, not to me. And I’m a competitive player, before you say anything.
> It will continue to sell because of its name just like how people still buy the awful Resident Evil and Final Fantasy games that come out but the glory days of Halo are long gone.
Nope, just the days you remember. Newer generations will continue to enjoy the game, it just won’t be the same as it once was, which is normal. I’ll agree I miss aspects of previous games.
> It will never be a competitive shooter again.
Ghostayame and his Halo 4 MLGV1 settings would disagree.
> It will never be the game your friends play.
And yet, I had one of my most memorable Halo experiences the other day. I’ll agree it’s different, and I don’t like some of the changes, but it’s not terrible.
> For me, the campaign is what keeps me tied to them, it is one of the most unique and exciting story-lines of any Game franchise I have ever played.
That we can agree on. I still wish it was more explorable, though. RIP Halo 2.
> I still have hope that either 343i can get their sht together and fix this sht, or bungie will jump back and create (if not co-create) halo 5/6.
Aside from the fact that they appear to be ignoring us at the moment, I will say they didn’t do as pore of a job as you make it out to be. Some of the aspects they were unable to put in due to copyright, and others aren’t to huge a deal. This is more a halo game than reach ever was. It also has more competitive potential than reach ever did.
> Lets face it, the golden days of halo were over after halo 3.
I’ll continue to enjoy it, and make new memories rather than trying to recreat the old. Old memories are good, and should not be forgotten, but you need to leave room for new memories as well. Rather than focusing on trying to make things as they once were, try to better this version, and just let enjoyable memories happen.
> Do not get me wrong, I have been a fan of halo since the beginning and also a fan of the halo novels, Halo was my Childhood.
> What are your thoughts on this?
Halo was my childhood. I for one, will continue to let the game grow, whilst trying to trim back some of the annoyances. I do not agree with some of the changes, but with some tweaks, the game is just as enjoyable as previous versions.
