also the multiplayer is kind of meh, the guns are awful, melee breaking shields in one hit is broken as fuck, most weapons are peashooters so the usual plasma + headshot is king, that or camping your ass with a shotgun

    They were originally not even going to make a Halo 3, and were going to end the series on Halo 2 (which would have had an Ark level)
    But they realized that there was too much to fit into Halo 2, so they ended making Halo 3.

        Brutes are so boring to fight compared to elites. In 2 they were just in the last couple levels and were absolutely terrifying, when they went berserk. Halo 3 also has the worst flood levels and they added new bullet sponge and flood sniper tower with firing rate of machine gun, which I find to just not work with the general gameplay idea of flood - rushing you in melee, becouse the sniper makes you cover and cheese. It may have the best vehicles, the brute one turns the game into demolition derby and warthog doesn't control like shit finally, but the vehicle levels suffer from too large amount of enemies, which again makes the player hide and cheese. The ending just didn't work for me and felt like last minute asspull - why didn't chief crawl couple more meters into the pilot's cabin?

        HALO 2'S LOST STORY

        Halo 3 was meant to be a victory lap because Bungie couldn't finish two or three levels to actually finish Halo 2 and the series. But let's look at Reach.

        Level 3: instead of going in a circle to retrieve your offense, you go in a circle to deploy your offense
        Level 4: instead of going on a night sniping mission, you go on a... night sniping mission
        Level 5: instead of storming a beach to secure a critical location, you storm a sandy cliff to... secure a critical location
        Level 7: Fly to three locations to activate some technology which will assuredly help but we're never told explicitly how, but it's as good an excuse to fly to three locations as any
        Level 8: Go through the ruined level of an area you previously explored to find an AI-related objective to help you finish a game

        All of that should sound familiar, because it's either just CE again or intentionally doing the opposite of CE to combine with nostalgia to invoke the same feelings. 3 only existed because 2 didn't end properly, but Reach only existed to make a buck and finish a contract.

        After that, Frank O'Connor, 343 Industries' franchise development director outlined several books that came out to setup Halo 4.

        >Frankie: Most of the books for the last two years have dealt with building backstory for Halo 4, rather than fixing canonical errors or mismatches. We've bought ourselves a little bit of latitude with the terminals in previous Halo games. We knew that the fiction was going to evolve when we were writing the terminals for Halo 3.

          Yeah, obviously a developer is going to iterate on their previous works. Halo is inspired by Marathon, Marathon was a clone of Doom with more AI mumbo jumbo, and in the end Doom is just an elaborate form of Simon Says

      I agree with you, I can't take anyone who says Halo 3/ODST is their favorite game seriously because the sandbox is fundamentally broken by the absence of elites. If someone can't notice the difference between the bumbling fridge-hitbox brutes to the agile strategic elites, they're simply a smoothbrain who's been blinded by the raw spectacle of the Ark and Covenant.

    was meant to be the 2nd Ark level, used assets from the mp map of the same name
    >"Real Cortana"
    isn't the actual name obviously but Release Cortana is actually just the 2nd half of the level Floodgate with the skyboxes changed. The Real Cortana level was reusing/remaking geometry from Halo 2, to make it much more clearly set on High Charity, Chief was one point was going to enter mausoleum of the arbiter and fight arbiter floods.

                It literally is what you said. Do you really think everyone who played the MCC marathoned it yesterday and had zero time to think? What you're really saying is that you had to be a fan for 20 years, experienced all the hype and played each release with a few years' pause in-between. Except no other media, no even any other game series work like this. I can play classic FF and say VI>IV>V>I>II>III without having been a kid in the 80's and owning a NES/SNES, yet somehow I "had to be there" for Halo.

You think because you rushed through a piece of media that your opinion is worth more than the people who have been discussing it for years. At least have the respect to refine your arguments and simmer on your thoughts for a bit. One of the retards in this thread main argument was that "the aliens look gay."

                For one, enemies have location-specific damage, and can be disarmed that way. It leads to more interesting gameplay than "charge shot guys with shields, use bullets on anything without shields"
                For two, suppressed weapons are actually quiet and don't alert enemies.

                If the game was built around entire ecosystems that don't exist today, then yes, you aren't experiencing the game fully. This isn't hard to figure out.

                If I randomly ripped out scenes from a movie, are you going to pretend you've experienced it fully?

                The playlists themselves don't exist anymore, 343 didn't even try to copy them for MCC.
                None of it was copied for MCC. You are playing a butchered experience.

                That's funny because Halo CE was never on Xbox Live, and Halo 3 was an entirely different system. Stop talking about things of which you know nothing about.

                So you can't follow a conversation, thanks for clarifying.

                See, the playlists themselves are a major factor. If you want to play Halo 2 today you have to join a playlist with 6 other games in the rotation. You have a 1 in 6 chance (before weightings that make it worse) to get a game of one Halo 2 match. Then you need to pray it's an actual game type and map you want.

                In original Halo 2 you had very specific playlists, objectives, casual, competitive, ranked.
                You had a ranking system that worked.
                You had a seamless friends list and lobby system that made finding matches, friends, lobbies, games, infinitely more enjoyable.
                You had an ecosystem that elevated the game, matches, community, etc.

                And yet all of this is gone in MCC. You can laugh and say it's meaningless but that's because you never fucking played it.

                If there were a sizeable group of people wanting to play halo 2 then you'd get your halo 2 matches. Fact is that MCC is basically dead (in the low thousands) and you can't afford to filter to the less popular games because less people want to play them.

                See, here's the flipside.
                It doesn't happen because halo 2 is less popular.
                This is only a problem for the halo 2 person because no other teams are looking for halo 2. Matchmaking selects a game from the overlap in the search between your lobby and another lobby's. There is no bias making it choose one game over another within that overlap.

                There is no single searcher on Halo 4 though.
                Think of this;

                There are 7 teams (2 players per)
                Team 1, 2, 3, are searching for Halo CE, 2 and 4
                Team 4, 5, 6, are searching for Reach, Halo 3, and 4
                Team 7 (you) is searching for Halo 2.

                System: do I send through 6 teams on Halo 4, or do I send through 4 teams on Halo 2.

                This is what I mean. It makes no sense to prioritize the lesser teams. You move more people by prioritizing people who pick more games.

                this is obvious, but the fact that picking a game no one wants to play limits it most of all should be equally obvious
                there is no reason the matchmaking algorithm should pick one game over another if there is sufficient overlap between different matchmaking groups

                It allows guns to be more unique.
                In nu-doom you'll never, ever use the default pistol and a shotgun is reserved for fodder. In Halo you might be in a weapon-starved level and forced to creatively use shittier weapons.
                In nu-Doom there's really marginal differences between a sniper, a rocket launcher and a plasma weapon outside of their specific narrow niches, since you have to be able to clear an arena with one gun if you don't have ammo for another. I frequently found myself swapping one gun for another just to use ammo equally between all guns and it made zero difference. Halo, for good or bad, restricts your selection of guns to what's dropped at the time, so it can force different playstyles on you with different guns.
                Nu-doom has one heavy gun, the BFG, and has to restrict the ammo it gives you lest some sections of the game get too easy. And if the game is easy enough already, then you'll never use the BFG since you don't know if you won't need the limited ammo later. Halo, for good or bad, encourages you to actually use the heavy guns since otherwise they just take up a slot and can ratio the kind and number of heavy guns you get.

                There's variety to it. Fuel rod cannon, rocket launcher, grenade launcher, sniper rifles are all different and kind of count as BFGs. There's also gimmicky guns like the needler which can erase a single elite in some situations.

                The Needler is just another automatic weapon, with the gimmick of putting in all of its damage at once instead of over time.

                Not them but I think the needler is distinct enough to count as it's own thing. The "all or nothing" nature of the gun gives it a sort of unique utility and tactile distinction of use that you don't really use it in the same niches or even really aim and shoot with it in the same way you do other weapons

                The Needler has a unique gimmick, but the function is exactly the same as any other automatic in the series. You point in the general direction of an enemy, then hold the trigger until it dies.

                No, that's exactly what i'm refuting.

                The AR, SMG, etc are spray and pray weapons. You aim at the enemy up close, and they get peppered, or if you wanna pretend you're being more tactical then that, you use short bursts (which actually is worthwhile in some of the games, and leads to less of you just spraying at enemies, and more you reactively altering the length of your trigger pulls and waiting to pull the trigger again till the spread is reigned in and the enemy is in the center of the reticule again), which gradually whittles down their health.

                The Needler is more about you waiting for the enemy to be in the sweet spot where the needles have the travel time to home in, but aren't so far away the tracking doesn't go away, and also where you have a direct clean line of sight for the full duration of your needle volley and where the enemy is caught out in the open, and then you actually hold the trigger down for a specific, learned period to release JUST the right amount of needles, not too few or else no supercombine and you may as well have done nothing, but not too much or else you're wasting ammo.

                In terms of the actual tactile way you use it, line shots up, hold the trigger down, etc, it's as or more different vs the AR then say the AR is vs the BR or the Brute shot. And in terms of niche, it's also specifically a anti-high-value-infantry weapon, it's basically pointless against grunts or jackals or hunters but is etremely useful vs heavily sheilded elites and brutes.

                Also, too add, the Halo Infinite needler is a perfect example of this distinction, because they made it much more like other automatics and it feels a lot less interesting to use as a result:

                In Infinite, the needles stay inside the target for much longer, so the need for you to land the exact amount of needles needed vs too few of them is lessened, and it's effectively no different from the amount of time it takes for shields to recharge so it may as well be normal damage. The needles themselves also do more damage on impact, so you can get kills without supercombines vs weakened enemies. The Needler also has much more spread, and with much more forgiving tracking close up, but this leads to it being less able to track enemies further out, leading to you more or less spraying with it point blank rather then carefully lining shots up in the sweet spot range, etc.

                If the game was built around entire ecosystems that don't exist today, then yes, you aren't experiencing the game fully. This isn't hard to figure out.

                If I randomly ripped out scenes from a movie, are you going to pretend you've experienced it fully?

                just a few posts up the poor dude went on a rant how he "totally owned everybody" and how HALO has some uhhh... techniques and mechanics? like..... switching from a pistol to a rocket launcher when a monke pops up, no other game ever had this before.
                totally groundbreaking.

                or, shit - that - omg thats just pure mega skill only HALO has - that you can PICK which enemy to shoot first.

            In multiplayer. Like the rest of you retards who ventured into it to "own" the controller players. Yet instantly complained when it wasn't going your way despite you not having a grasp on anything.
            I loved being accused of using a controller while actually using a M&K. It was so funny to see you retards squirm. It was total proof that PCfags are just pretenders. They talk a big game but are total chumps.

              Halo was designed for auto-aim and analog anon. You're fooling nobody.

                Anon, nobody "owned" anyone on Halo. It has no mechanics, it requires no skill.

                That's what you tell yourself after you got owned, yes.
                It's much easier to say it's not your type of gameand leave it at that. Instead you cope and pretend.
                There's nothing uglier than a person saying "this game sucks" because they got owned. You don't have to win at everything, anon.

                So you agree with me halo is a no skill game and has no mechanics. I accept your concession.

              ok, post my stats in HALO, then.

              he tried to tell me that switching from a pistol to a rocket launcher is a unique mechanic only HALO has, and - holy shit - in HALO you have to PICK which enemy to shoot first!

              WHOA!

    Halo 2 was the only good game unironically. The multiplayer for 1 and 3 were ass while 2 flowed perfectly.

      Halo 1 multiplayer is the perfect Halo game, but only under specific conditions. Halo 2 made things more accessible to people who were going 1-30 in CE.
      The janky BR alone makes it shit.

    Halo 3
    Halo CE Campaign
    ODST Campaign
    Halo 2 Anniversary multiplayer
    Halo Reach Firefight
    Halo Infinite Campaign
    ODST Firefight
    Halo Reach Campaign
    Halo 2
    Halo Infinite multiplayer
    Halo 4 = Halo Reach multiplayer
    Halo CE multiplayer

    If we're talking modded content/custom edition then Halo CE jumps up to Halo 3-tier.

        The issue is that I played a shitload of custom edition on PC. Trying to go back to og vanilla CE is suffering. On MCC, I tried playing CE BTB and I was stuck playing back to back matches of nothing but Boarding action with pistols. That's super boring. If I'm gonna play CE I want all my modded jets, gundams, longsword nukes, motorcycles, and massive back. The vehicles in CE don't even get destroyed so most of the vehicles are stuck in the middle of the map while you're at the opposite end having to run around like an idiot with only your pistol. There's no variety in OG CE.

    Imagine being this contrarian, the franchise is in the dumpster and 3 is still way better than anything since. If you prefer 2 that's cool but this is stupid

    What an irrelevant point.
    Yes, 343 is shit.
    Yes, MCC launch was so bad you couldn't even play it.
    Yes, MCC is still shit.
    But MCC today is infinitely better and fundamentally changed than the original MCC.

        Not to mention the bit where truth needs a human to start the ark so they send a human (Johnson) to deal with him and get captured.

    its pretty overrated. some great moments, but its not a masterpiece by any stretch. Same goes for halo 2. Halo CE's campaign will forever reign king. Anyone who says otherwise has awful taste and you should avoid their opinions on anything. I always use halo ce as a litmus test to filter out plebs.

    It's taken me 10+ years to "understand" how each level flows into one another. Things in Halo 3 just happen like it's literally the "and then THIS happened! And then THAT happened!" of the Halo franchise. Even the dialogue takes a huge step down from Halo 2 "I am a monument to all your sins" kino
