    It's kind of surreal seeing so many series run into the ground so much they barely even resemble the time when they were good. Like in the moment back then you thought they were so good there's no way they'll ever suck and then here we are.

    I liked Reach but I missed the launch and only got to enjoy it during 2012-2014.

    The copy of the game that I bought was Brazilian, and worked on my Xbox 360. However, all the voice acting was in Brazilian, with English menus and fonts. So I was reduced to playing online only for about three years until my second Xbox 360 kicked the bucket.

      geeze, were you in a coma?

      It was never good. That's just nostalgia. There are so many better (even free) games than halo. Leave your comfort zone and explore.

      those games wish they were halo

      You probably bait, but Reach was kino. They absolutely nailed the look of the armor in this one. It has never looked better since, only worse.

      >There are so many better (even free) games
      I guess it could feel like that nowadays where people want all kinds of unlocks and things all the time. But back then when gameplay actually mattered you could play this for hundreds of hours.
      I'm guilty of it too. Played the MCC multiplayer for a few weeks and havent played since then.

          I think if you count Metal Gear, and X-Com, which are different genre's of action games and 4X games respectively, then they would constitute a modicum of shooting.

          Then there's Gears of War, which while popular, is third person mostly, and probably fits in well with the same crowd who would denote shooters as being "games with guns in them," so there's that.

            Halo's guns were not made to work everywhere anytime, each gun is a tool with a purpose that thrives in their field, thats why people fought for guns in the arena so they could hold all the tools and make the game easier
            Weapons like the pistol or BR are jack of all trades but they can still be beaten by the designated guns in their fields
            343 just followed the trend and made the guns like CoD

              Not in Bungie's post-CE games. Not only did those guns suck, but they all had at least 1 clone so that each faction can have a weapon of each type.

                how? in H2 the PP was overpowered, and in 3 the gun could now do EMP to vehicles
                The only gun that was nerfed was the plasma rifle as it could no longer stun people, but it was still usable for quick beatdowns
                the "clones" were made for the campaign first, and had to be balanced for MP
                What I mean by redundant is that 343 made all the guns but the power weapons into jack of all trades, not clone guns

                >It fires a lot slower, and isn't treated the same.
                It's the sniper man people still play it normally, it's actually much more broken in H2 because it now was influenced by the aim assist (in CE it did not)

                Even with glitches, Halo 2's BR is weaker than H1's pistol. A straight full-auto BR is weaker.

                It wasn't.
                >It's the sniper man people still play it normally
                In CE, it was a sidegrade. It spawned every 30 seconds and most maps had 2 of them. But then you get to Halo 2 where it's treated the same way rockets are.
                >it's actually much more broken in H2 because it now was influenced by the aim assist (in CE it did not)
                Yes it did.

                The Carbine was slower than the BR, and didn't really have any benefits aside from it shooting really fast.
                >the non meta guns are mostly used as gimmicks in custom games

                Don't mash it as fast as humanly possible and you won't overheat before a kill.
                The plasma pistol's benefit is that it had 0 spread and dealt equal damage to shields and health.

                then it just a matter of preference if you want fast or low TTK with the ace gun, but the role of both guns is the same
                >30 bullets just to punch someone to death? And you're trying to suggest it wasn't nerfed?
                the smg has a high firerate
                Actually, I just found out that with half a mag you could kill a fully shielded player at mid to close range, so with even less than that you could get beatdowns
                >It wasn't.
                it is, the PR is miles ahead
                the shots are much more slower and you need too lead a lot, unless you are at their breath it would not do much

                thats how H2 and onwards the item spawn system works, Im much more of a fan of static timers tho
                >Yes it did.
                you dont have aim assist with the sniper in CE, thats why noscopes were much rarer

                the carbine in the right hands could kill someone faster than the BR
                >That's a shit cop-out answer.
                my point is that 343's weapon sanbox is redundant as they make all the guns the same thing. Having different guns that do the same role like in Bungie later games is not an issue

                The word you're looking for is outright inferior.
                But honestly there's no way 10 year old Xbox kids could have played Quake, both the skill floor and ceiling is way beyond their capacities.
                What makes no sense is sticking to Halo after growing up, it's like 20 year olds still obsessing over Teletubbies.

                Quake has always been a game for insufferable tryhards, pretty funny considering shooters have always been extremely popular nobrain games.
                Halo is a continuation of Unreal, an actual cool series where fun and content were allowed, it's not trying to appear more complex than it is and community isn't full of pretentious gays.

                Imagine if someone released a RTS today but ti was dumbed down 1992's Dunes.
                Driving a genre backwards just to appeal to a dumber audience is something I'll never understand, for the guys selling the product it might make sense but for idiots to actually defend is just beyond retarded.

                Define "better"
                The only argument I see from people like you is that all FPS must be like quake maybe with some little twist
                Why it is so hard for you to understand that some FPS are simpler and some are much more complex, also the game being "dumbed down" doesnt mean its easy as fuck, those are still hard to master
                I bet you also hate milsims or tactical FPS

        That wont save them, they notoriously hired people who hate Halo and with that there are factions in the studio working against each other and is a big reason Infinite was in development hell for years

        The whole studio just need replaced.

        Such retarded thinking
        It isn't like 343 is an indie company who have a small amount of founding
        They have no fucking excuse to add in contact that was already in previous editions right out of the box
        But that's what happens when people grow up thinking it's the norm that AAA studio put out the bar minimum for 80$

    I wish I could have gotten onboard with Destiny to get that same bungie gunplay that I love, but I'm just not into the whole looter shooter shit. And the PvP didn't have that same level of care as halo's from what I played. Crossing my fingers that their new IP that's supposed to be out in 2025 will be good.

          But it died so fast, just like H4, just like Infinite .Reach for example lasted for years even when H4 was still up, 343 cannot make games that retain people, because their games are not fun, if you make a fun and appealing game a lot of people will play it

        no i'm just retarded. as the Halo games got less and less blood I found the firefights to be increasingly stale. Combined with the floaty, glitchy ragdoll physics it just started feel like shooting at styrofoam. nothing felt visceral anymore, whereas in Halo 1 a grenade into a group of jackals and grunts painted the room purple and blue. after clearing an area you could turn around and admire the massacre of scorch marks, bullet holes, bodies and blood. it felt like I was leaving a mark on the levels instead of neatly sliding through them leaving them as clean and stale as when I started

    I liked the Far Cry gameplay in a Halo context with Infinite.
    But yeah, everything else is shit and missed opportunities.
    And somehow they managed to made a show worse than any of 343's bullshit.

    With all the shit going on in the world right now I'm a having a lot whole of nostalgia playing old Halo games, Gears of war and so on.
    Knowning that I can never go back to that era fucking hurts
