Thank you Pro for creating this and I eagerly look forwards to this interesting debate.

Black Ops 3 is clearly a better game than Halo 5.

1. Graphics
Black Ops 3 provides much better shadowing and textures than Halo. Take the following Black Ops Screenshot:

As you can clearly see, the detail of the gun, shadowing, texture and plants is far above that of this Halo 5 screenshot.

The shadow of the gun does not perfectly line up with the rest of the scene, the rendering distance is very low and enemies and buildings are not detailed and too unrealistic.

2. Single Player Mode
Here is what the reviewing website WhatCulture had to say on the Halo storyline:

"343 promised that Halo 5"s campaign would be roughly twice the length of Halo 4, so it stings that this isn"t the case at all. On Normal difficulty, it can be comfortably beaten in 5-6 hours, which is only marginally longer than the previous game, but that"s only where the complaints begin.
The mystery of "Has Master Chief become a villain?" isn"t much of a mystery at all, the Locke vs. Chief feud that the game was marketed on is downplayed entirely in the main game, several of the main missions involving the player just walking around for a few minutes, and you barely play as Master Chief. What a disappointment."

It ranked Black Ops 3 as having the best storyline due to the fact that it was extended, the story was interesting and the Nightmares version unlocked by completing the normal campaign makes up for any shortcomings that the original campaign might make. In addition, a reviewer on the site Metacritic said: "Halo 5: Guardians features an underwhelming, confusing and surprisingly banal campaign that's not actively bad, but equally not quite good enough to warrant a purchase on its own."

Multiplayer Battle Maps
Many of the Halo maps are unoriginal and the futuristic designs lacking in variation. Take the following screenshots of Halo battle maps.

As you can clearly see, the maps do not have any individual character, unlike the Call of Duty maps below. As Call of Duty 3 is located in the near future the developers can produce many more ideas for maps because they can refer to modern places.

Halo maps are boring and repetitive while each COD map is themed around a certain thing.

Next I shall rebut my opponents arguments explain more of my own. I look forwards to his next argument.

I ask voters to assess conduct for the forfeiture.
Meanwhile, my next argument is simply that the experts say the COD Black Ops 3 is simply better than Halo 5.
IGN, the famous reviewing website, rates Halo 5 at 4/5 when it rates Call of Duty 3 at 4.5/5.

I notice that we have reached the last round in this debate.

I thank my opponent for creating this debate and wish him good luck in the votes.
However, I urge that you, the voters, choose me as the victor due to the fact that I have not forfeited any of my arguments.
