      The Pit is by far the worst map in the game. It’s so fucking generic and uninteresting design, and the flow is just circling the map, sometimes broken by enemies spawning behind you.

          It’s still like this in Infinite. There’s no gimmick in any of the maps they’ve shown. They’re all just 3 lane arenas, and I believe 3 of them are symmetrical.

            I dunno, it plays vastly better than any other shooter I’ve ever played. I just play the campaigns and do the raids and dungeons a few times each, it’s good fun.

              The shooting mechanics are admittedly rock solid considering it’s from Bungie and the Raids (and a few strikes) are great with a group, but the complementary elements all kind of buckle within the constraints of the format. Without a versatile sandbox of weapons, vehicles, and enemies, combat scenarios usually boiled down to repetitive bullet-spongy shooting galleries. Destiny lore is also astoundingly poor for the potential it’s baffling.

                yeah, I wish there was more unique elements with the enemies, something like diablo style elite affixes would be great, and could easily work with all of the sci-fi tech and magic that the setting provides. Vehicles should totally get more play, especially in a big team style crucible mode, which is sorely lacking, and it’s a shame, because they feel pretty great to drive on the rare occasion that they show up

        1 2 and 3 combined arms maps were better but in Reach onwards Infanity only maps are better because the vehicle balance in Reach onward is beyond broken, and by that I mean they are practically useless and way too easy to destroy.

        Because for some reason the maps have arbitrary weights to them rather than all having an equal chance of being selected.
        Epitaph has a 2% weight for instance in AR slayer, so 1 in 50 games you will get it.

        Instead of fast-paced gameplay as usual for arena shooters, it focuses on slower team strategy, map control, and vehicles. It effectively does its own thing and is pretty fun in that sense.
        It also took other design decisions like regenerating health and two weapon carry limits. While these gameplay elements work well enough in Halo, they were copied by nearly every other medicore shooter of the 00s/10s and killed the entire fps genre for a decade.

        Halo 3 visually has aged in a lot of ways but the lighting is still godlike and does a great job and hiding how a lot of textures clearly indicate an xbox 360 game.

          Halo 3 definitely had the best blend of minimalism, colors, and great lighting to keep it good looking today. CE’s look is more cartoony with its blockish textures and even brighter colors, while Reach had a little too much going on with the character/gun models and scenery to pull off the same aesthetic as 3.
          Still I feel the only Halo game that aged poorly was 2. It was trying to do way too much with the limited Xbox tech at the time. It pushed that console to its limits but looks worse than CE today because of it. At least 2 got one of the greatest HD remasters ever made. H2A looks way better than 5, and it’s easily the visual peak of the entire franchise.

              As long as you also agree that CEA (or at least the second half of it) is utter dogshit and one of the biggest cases of wasted potential ever released.
              I don’t play H2 with original graphics anymore, because it looks like ass. I also really like modding that campaign with the ruby rebalanced patch, since the original gun balancing and difficulty scaling were also absolute trash. Level design is also a little boring compared to CE and 3 too lol, but can’t fix that. 10/10 writing, characters, and music though.

              The only reason I don’t play in H2A graphics is because the muzzle flash on most of the guns is over the top and so you can’t see shit once you start shooting.
              It’s most obnoxious on the carbine so it basically makes every arbiter level unplayable.

          Halo 3 holds up a lot better at high resolutions vs games of that period like Gears of War and COD4. It used a lot of layered decals and normal maps that are going to scale better at higher resolutions than whatever constituted as high res textures from 2007. And good lighting is always going to age well.

            It honestly holds up better than most games from the 7th gen. Whatever magic they pulled on the lighting seriously paid off, despite the low-poly assets.

              Good lighting can save old games, just like a good artstyle can. It’s why STALKER to this day is still called a really good looking game despite the age
              Personally there’s something about Halo 3’s artstyle I dislike though I can admit it still looks good. It almost seems too bright or too colorful or something to me.

      I decided to keep going through Halo 4’s campaign despite anons in an older thread saying it was mostly bad/mediocre and I gotta say
      I kind of liked it. Some of it anyways. It had enough moments that I liked to say that I likes the game even if I could pick a ton of things that I didn’t like
      Chief and Cortana suddenly having as deep a relationship they did felt weird but I could tell Bungie was hinting that by the end of 3. Maybe 343 just rushed it too far forward.
      Broadsword run was fun

          343 are incompetent but their inclusion of custom games browser is undeniably based

            No they aren’t and it isn’t the first thing they straight up lied about in the promo material either

      Do you think 343 will ever have the balls to kill off the Chief?

        They already did that by milking him for 3 more shitty games.

        They would just revive him with some forerunner deus ex machina bullshit the next game

        His story ended for me in Halo 3.
        I wouldn’t mind if they gave him a final sendoff.
        I might be pissed if they kill him, but I could stand having him disappear.
        Spartans never die, they’re just mia, and all that.

              the only way it’d be cool is if the multiplayer was a lore accurate Master Chief civil war

      Unless I missed it, there isn’t an overt Halo MCC shill thread rn, so I’m posting this here.
      I am a salty Bungie purist who is pretty critical of 343i, but I bought the MCC last night and have been playing it all day.
      I like that you can customize your downloads and only download certain parts of games: and I noticed that I had downloaded the multiplayer for Halo 1, 2, 3, and Reach, but the campaigns for only Reach, ODST, and 4.
      I love the Halo trilogy campaigns to death, I love Big Chief’s story in that trilogy, but stories about anyone other than Chief are just what I need right now. Reach and Spartan Ops are a lot of fun particularly because you get to customize your character. There’s a roleplaying element to that, where there’s space to imagine who your spartan is, what his specialty is and all that. My Noble 6 is a scuba boi…
      Spartan Ops is also the best thing 343i has done with Halo, as far as campaigns go. Some of the writing is really really bad, like you have some "I’m going to science the shit out of this!" lines, but the premise of being operators out in the field with a team behind you is great, and refreshingly smaller scale compared to Mister Chief’s big adventure.

        I really hated Spartan Ops because there wasn’t any semblance of balance. No time or life limits, so it just throws a ridiculous amount of enemies at you and expects you to die a hundred times.

          I can agree about that, but I’ll take it over what they did for their actual campaigns.

      for me, it’s going into maps alone (because i had no friends) and just soaking in the atmosphere and ambience
