    I can't believe how sheltered Xbox zoom zoom gays have been if it took then 23 years to figure this shit out.

    Gaylo was absolute trash and blamed for the demise of AAA gaming as a whole throughout the entire 00s.

        >I-I'TS 343'S FAULT

        343i didn't help matters, but Halo's fate was mostly sealed in 2007.

        CoD 4 was an even bigger hit then Halo 3, albiet not by a huge margin, but wheras it took years for new Halo games to come out, a new CoD released yearly.

        By the time Reach came out, there had already been 2 additional CoD games since CoD 4, and a third came out right around the same time. CoD only got bigger every year and by the time a new Halo game out, it was old news. Then on top of that, the Xbone flopped at launch.

        Even if Halo 4, MCC, and 5 had all been amazing, the franchise still would not have been one of the top franchises in the industry, even if it was better then the position it was IRL

        as well

      I felt that way to some degree at the time but ultimately COD4 and MW2 ended up being the real villains that completely destroyed the industry, things have never really recovered from their disastrous influence.

      Reach was terrible. 343 didn't help at all, but by the time they came onto the scene the series was shit anyway.

        Reach fractured the playerbase as about half (of those who kept playing Halo) stuck to Halo 3. but by the time 4 and 5 launched a good Halo game could have absolutely recaptured the whole Halo audience. 3 was antiquated and Reach was dead. the door for a reunion was wide open.

          Doubtful. Most people played Halo just because it was the popular game. They moved on because they weren't invested in Halo as a series, they just wanted to play the game their friends were.

            to have a popular game you need to have something that attracts some CORE audience to begin with. yes, once the ball gets rolling less enthusiastic players then get on board because it's the popular thing. but how did it get popular? not randomly or by magic.
            when you remove the stuff that attracted the core audience you likely end up with no core audience at all. Halo 4 tried to turn the Halo multiplayer into a COD game with kill streaks. did MS expect that the core audience of COD was going to move over to Halo? shit makes no sense. the core audience for COD will always prefer COD. but the core audience for Halo does not want to play something like COD or they would already be playing COD. the way games are designed by committee in the big budget space is cargo cult. the most popular game does X? we must do X now, too. this simple moron logic is what brought us sprint in Reach and kill streaks in Halo 4 and so on and so forth. this erosion of Halo's core gameplay caused an erosion of the core audience. and when the core audience leaves, the wider audience also leaves because there's nobody dragging them in the door.

    I've said it before but it's honestly fricking WILD how badly 343 mismanaged halo. It was basically THE best IP to have at the time, offered to them on a silver platter, and they drove it into the ground.

    Landscape was different back then. Combination of the large casual audience that moved onto CoD and eventually other things, less fractured playerbases overall without a million things trying to keep their piece of the pie with increasingly predatory methods to promote investment over their peers and just a decrease in quality. A truly killer Halo game definitely could've done much greater numbers but it was never going to peak that hard again.
