>>322748203 >Is it any good? yes, but a bit bare. early enough in development that changing the size of player model is still on the table (and, per one of their dev update streams, something a couple of them tweaked with).
>>322748975 no recoil. mix of hitscan and projectile weapons. here's some dude going through the weapons tutorial-thing. watch on 1.5x or something, he seemed kinda ditz in the beginning. https://youtu be/xW3qh8AtHpY?t=48
>>322749895 most likely yes. depending on how good you were at quake it will feel slow movement wise at first but you'll adjust. UT movement is more dodgey jumpy (UTAlpha arguably less than previous; dodge-jump and double jump being absent) while quake is more speed racer.
Better question, why do people like playing shitty slow FPS games in the first place? Halo is garbage tier console peasant bullshit for queers and homosexual babby bitches that can't into mouse and keyboard.
>>322750849 you mean a firing animation? did you see the crosshair jump? 'cause there aint no recoil, son.
>>322750978 development is open to the community, or whatever. I don't know details. Probably you can develop mutagens that turn it into halo but there aren't even all the mutagens from 2k4 in yet so what do I know.
>>322750978 Play Murder Miners. The visuals are simple, but it's a really good game. It has cool jumping glitches to abuse too, so it's much better than Halo, although that wasn't by intentional design.
>>322751340 >>322751373 If it has classes or loadouts its not really an arena shooter. Gears 3 had an alternate weapon for rifle and shotgun but it made sure they were balanced. Overwatch has classes, never heard of Paladins, and i think Lawbreakers has loadouts.
>>322748203 yeah it's ok i prefer quake (reflex) though >>322751054 paladins? i know epic is doing paragon as well >>322750978 there is actually some early access game which is basically "oldschool" halo gameplay http://store.steampowered.com/app/332970/

Until 343 took over and released the turd that Halo 4 is, Halo was the FPS series that was the closest to classic arena shooters. Its gameplay mechanics are also well beyond most FPSes out there, PC included, for they are incredibly basic on the surface, allowing everyone to play, while being quite complex underneath, allowing actual skill, or I would rather say, strategy. The balance between weapons, melee, grenades, vehicles, and all other elements is outstanding, and it's probably one of the few games where no weapon is left aside as "being useless".
It is the only FPS I've played so far that exhibited such a level of strategy in everything. Yes, the action is slow, no it doesn't focus heavily on precise shooting, but that's precisely because it's all about making the right choice at the right moment.
There really is something about Halo you don't see in any other game, and people tend to appreciate that.
>>322759954 Halo was just a slow arena shooter. It had an emphasis on map control and movement which is basically what defines the subgenre. GoW was another arena shooter, although it had positioning as a huge part of its movement while UT and Quake had maneuverability.
Games such as CoD are twitch shooters, where it's all about getting the drop on your enemy. You aren't trying to control the map but rather move through certain paths that minimize your blind spots while maximizing your threat range.
Team Fortress and Overwatch are class shooters. You pick a loadout that synergizes with your teammates and work together to achieve an objective through everyone maximizing their own classes' strength.
>>322764564 >Halo was just a slow arena shooter with a wide variety of guns including guided projectiles, hitscan and explosive stuff, regenerative shields mechanic, melee mechanics including melee weapons, team-based vehicles, equipment/armor abilities, different types of grenades... and all that shit actually working together pretty well.
It actually pretty much has the depth of a class-based shooter without constraining you into a class.
>>322765162 Don't get me wrong, Halo was fucking incredible in terms of bringing the genre to console and had all sorts of cool stuff going on. I simply mean that genre wise it was a slow arena shooter, kind of like how I'd call GoW a tactical arena shooter as you are a lot more worried about where you're bunkering down than where you're rocket jumping to.
I wouldn't say it had the same sort of depth as a class shooter (TF2 class not CoD class) because you aren't really working with ideas such as team comp or counters though. It had a lot more tactical depth than strategic depth.
>You should play Halo games then, this is why no one will take you seriously.
This is laughable because I've played them up until 4. The problem is that most of what you would call 'deep' mechanics are already present in PC shooters such as UT, Tribes, TF2, Enemy Territory, etc. The difference between them is that the gunplay in halo is very slow and the physics floaty. It was a good game for it's time and great for introducing people to the genre. However it's very slow and lacks the movement mechanics present in most PC FPSes thus making it a slower and in effect a shallower arena based shooter. Even the melee system that you so lauded is essentially devaluing positioning by bein a lockon animation dependent on lenient positioning. Not to mention an instant kill if you have a sword.
People who say blanket statements like you did usually don't have the experience playing other games of higher skill to back it up. Halo was good but it wasn't great, people dismiss it because a lot of the lacking movement mechanics are because it WAS MADE FOR CONSOLES. I even played it on PC back in the day religiously for a while but then ultimately went back to UT.
