Too bad Halo 5 has absolutely no fucking content

I own Halo 5 and I've never played the multiplayer (unless you count co-op)

3 had the GOAT marketing campaign and we can all agree on that.

Still makes me excited for a game that came out in 2007. Fucking diamonds man.

You should play it. I had no hype for it either after 343 royally fucked up halo 4 and the mcc but surprisingly enough Halo 5 is actually a fantastic multiplayer game. Probably the best so far this gen. At least, in my opinion.
>>323742709
Halo 5 didnt have much content at launch ill agree there, but it is getting monthly updates that add tons of shit and its actually pretty packed with content. Obviously nowhere near as much as the classic halos (and thats totally not ok) but considering the amount of content other modern shooters and games in general have these days halo 5 has plenty to offer. Which honestly speaks more to the atrocity that is the modern games industry and less to 343's incompetence

CE = 2 > 3

3's campaign was a huge stepdown

No it's not, we got forge, and a few new maps most of which were also made in forge. All 343 has released is shit that was there on launch in previous Halo games.

Black Ops 3 arguably has more content than Halo 5 especially when it came to launch content.
>>
>>323743472
> black ops 3 had more content than halo 5
Yeah can't argue that. Its bullshit that h5 has as little content as it does, but I still give it the slightest but of props for having more content than Battlefront, hardline, rainbow 6, and evolve. And for me h5's core gameplay mechanics and map design (in arena) are so good I can forgive the current lack of content.
And hey apparently griff ball and other modes are coming soom

How come every fucking halo thread there are retards who don't separate campaign and mp further down so the lists actually mean something, or even worse, don't even have MP and SP separately?

Halo Reach's MP maps are shit, and the default settings in MM are meh, but it has the most modes and up untill 5's forge came out, the best forge of any halo game.

How the fuck are you supposed to accurately place that just in a single category for MP? You fucking can't.

Bare minimum, you need to split it down to:

>Story/Writing
>Campaign missions
>Music
>Matchmaking/Default multi
>Customs/Content

You could also do categories for atmosphere, map design, and weapon balance too, which would help ODST and 5 be rated more accurately.

>>323743776

Should have been there at launch along with every other gametype that's ever been in a Halo game

What? Halo 2 was far, far superior to every other Halo in the series

I was reading the fall of reach, the flood, and first strike and posting on b.net before you probably even heard of halo.

Was reach really that bad?

no

in fact only retards don't consider it top 3

no its pure shit

I bought halo ce for the Xbox before the Xbox was even released. I actually owned the copy about a week before the console was available

>>323747241
That's actually pretty cool.

Anyways, I just don't think it's aged well. It did a ton of cool stuff for it's time but there's just so many problems and lacking areas compared to every other halo campaign and story.

>>323747267
>4 above 5
what

>>323746903
No, the biggest problem was that the AA's weren't properly balanced and the vehicle health system was fucking shit.

Just the "latest game in a series is the worst shit" mentality in effect.

Halo 2
>>
>>323746903

Even if we ignore the fact that it promised a look at one of the most defining events in the entire IP's history but failed on every single level to deliver adequately, it just wasn't a good game. It was absolutely mediocre by FPS standards.
>>
>>323747759

Isn't this every halo game though?

Halo 2 promised to be fighting for earth, on eath, and ilovebees had fuckall to do with anything

Halo 3 was supposed to be finishing the fight, and the believe campaign was misleading, and again, IRIS had fuckall to do with anything.

You already covered reach

5 was supposed to be about ONI bullshit and chief vs locke, and huntthetruth was misleading too.

If anything, Reach and 4 did what they set out to do best.
>>
>>323748415

>but failed on every single level to deliver adequately

You can say this about the rest of the games, but don't even try to pretend that the fall of Reach isn't one of the biggest if not THE biggest event in Halo canon.

It's certainly up there.

I'd say the Forerunners rebelling against the precursors, The Halo array's activation and conservation measure, the First battle of Harvest, thV Fall of Reach, and the Destruction of Alpha Halo/04 are probably the top 5.
>>
People complain about Battlefront having no content but Halo 5 gives it a fun for its money there's hardly any maps, and none of which are actually good, they range from shit to playable. 6 playlists? Two of which are essentially the same thing. The campaign story is awful, characters are annoying and all the environments feel the same. I hate 343

How did 3 fail to deliver? You do finish the fight, the ending was great

>>323749154
Shit, guess the creation/discovery of slipspace drives would probably be a contender as well.

It's w10 only on PC though, unless we can hack it to work on 7/8

Yes I'll start drawing up my 20 page PowerPoint presentation on it now sir!

>>323749394
Because the campaign was way too easy even on legendary, like 5 hours long and the writing went to the most bland shit imaginable when Halo 2 actually had interesting dialogue.
>>
>>323749542

Don't forget Cortana Moments
>>
>>323749542
Okay but that's irrelevant. It didn't fail to deliver on the finish the fight thing, which is what I'm talking about retard

That's still not an excuse for the blatant lack of content up until now, nor does it excuse the shitty ranking system where everyone is Gold+ with the exception of Preturbed Pablo.

Also can you stop typing like a teenager with mild autism.
>>
>>323743986
It just easier to post the truth

>CE > 3 > 2 > ODST > Reach > Wars > 5 > 4

See?
>>
>>323747675
I really hate the new gameplay of 5
>>
>>323752205
Can you go into more detail then that?

I think 5 probably has the best core gameplay after 2.

>>323751173
That literally tells me nothing though. What about each do you like? What about each do you dislike?
>>
Playing Reach right now. Loved the series until 4.

Anyone want to do a 1v1 or 4v4 session? Add me at SII 042 Douglas

Those are the letter I as in: "I am a man."
