Will Halo 5 be a fun game?
Debate Rounds (3)
I personally do not like Halo. I mean Halo Reach was fun but their downfall followed shortly after. I mean yes, I will most likely buy it, but it most likely not be fun. Halo 4 was horrible, no one talked, there wasn't anything new. The thing that annoyed me most was the huge robot things that could shoot bullets and missiles. Plus, I personally think COD is the best. And not to mention, Halo hasn't had anything new. The graphics have stayed the same and it's just not that fun. Also, with all the times playing Halo, I get bored and frustrated very easily. They should change the control layout. One thing I also have an issue with is the campaign. I hate the concepts. After about 20 min of playing I usually get bored and annoyed with the silence.
That caught me by surprise. That genuinely made my day xD! I mean you went all fan girl on me for a second. Anyway, I personally don't play the campaign much, mainly Multilayer. But come on, Halo hasn't made anything appealing to the whole gaming community. I mean yeah of course people like you are going to get all hype, but they need to make Halo enjoyable for people who play a lot of COD, GTAV, etc. People who own Destiny, Far Cry, Titanfall, etc. will mostly be the people buying it. And one of the reason I believe Halo won't be that "fun", is because the graphics! What I'm more interested in is the more modern kind of stuff. My cousins are really geeks when it comes to Halo and I don't understand how they could be so into it! It's hard to quickscope, and since I am more used to COD there aren't any vehicles (accept for WAW). So when the Halo maps include Banshees, Ghosts, and the robot suits piss me off. It gives everyone an unfair advantage. Plus they need to really consider building a more structured game when it comes to variety in weapons, perks, style, etc. Don't get me wrong, the avatars can be really bad*ss, but that's kinda it. Also, they need to improve the maps! They are too small and all have the same theme. It really does just get boring, and the fact that all the people on Halo are complete p*ssies and when they do talk, they have sh*tty connect mics or horrible mics. In Halo 4, I couldn't get past the first campaign, it's just annoying. I don't have the patience for sh*tty graphics, quiet lobbies, bad weapons, bad perks, bad maps, and bad everything. Although I do enjoy CAP the Flag and Grifball.
You don't seem to understand that catering too much to other games' audiences will not work for Halo's arena style, that also can be morphed into custom maps and games that are very interesting. They tried this in Halo 4, and it turned out badly. Perks, loadouts, nor killstreaks benefit Halo's gameplay, and as such, you will likely never find satisfaction in Halo.
You say the graphics are bad, but I get the feeling you have not seen Halo 2: Anniversary. It runs at 60 frames per second, very smoothly and crisply, at 1080p. Halo 5's beta was 720p 60fps, but first of all, it's a beta. Second of all, if it has to be 720p to accommodate custom games to blow our minds, then I'm absolutely fine with it, as long as it runs at 60fps. You seem to think graphics are huge in determining quality, but graphics are just superficial. You could have a pretty looking game that plays like sh*t would you be saying the same thing?
The main point is, you don't appear to understand Halo's arena style, and instead prefer the simplicity of COD. You don't have to like Halo, but you can't wish that it catered to your ideal kind of fun in a game when that ideal compromises the very foundation of the game you want changed. Thank you for accepting my debate, let the voting begin once you respond.
(And FYI, before you say communication is impossible in Halo, that's why they have the Spartans talk in Multiplayer for Halo 5.)
So, in COD (using a more infamous game for example) there are so many creative ways you can take advantage of the actual advanced guns. You can trickshot, quickscope, or simple use the guns realistically. It's what makes the game fun. And COD has so many weapons. In Halo, it is impossible to trickshot, quickscope, etc. Unless of course you are highly skilled. I have tried so many times to quickscope in Halo, but the only thing that is stopping me is the firing rate and zoom rate. I think it is so slow, I just can't deal with it. Plus, there isn't much of a variety when it comes to snipers. Well non that are completely, fast. And I do not like the frags and stuff (forgot what they were called).
Not to mention, it takes a very long time to kill someone. Like, say if I were using a sniper, I could shoot the person 2 times and it wouldn't kill them. The power isn't strong at all. And then they'll have very overpowered weaponry. I would give examples but over the years I have forgotten what the guns names are.
So like you were saying, if you haven't played WAW, there is one map that has a tank in it. So, I wasn't talking about the campaign. So, in Halo infected isn't very fun, it gets a little old. In zombies all they do is come at you with swords (from what I remember). They need to give a more intense game mode for zombies. More like COD, not saying to copy them exactly but to get a little more complex. In AW, exo-zombies is so much fun. Plus there are new maps. I love the idea and everything. As the rounds advanced, the hell-hounds are better, and they make different types of zombies. I just think there will be so many kids wanting to buy BO3 instead. Or they might buy Halo 5 and then buy BO3 because the release of BO3 is a month after Halo 5's release. All I am say is, they really need to hit hard to make this a good one.
And yes, I know the graphics have improved a lot! That's what happens with every game. All I am saying is make it more complex and modern with the maps. Make new game modes like SnD. That would be really fun on Halo. Improve the weaponry, etc. And one thing I do like about Halo, it that it takes it's time. Instead of releasing the game year after year. Plus the campaigns are good including the Easter eggs. Something I'm surprised you didn't mention. Also, to gain more appeal and make more money, add gun textures! That's something that can step Halo up a notch. But then again, it's all based on preference. There is no way to tell whether or not Halo 5 will be good. I just think it will be like all the other Halos.
Thanks for your time. Lol, I actually had fun with this debate. It brought me back to Halo Reach memories. Anyway, lol thnx!
