    I remember enjoying the first s couple years after it released, the second was ok, but yeah after that - vomit. Pure generic trash, same with Gears.

    To be fair Sony had their own equivalent generic shooters.

    Calling Halo a generic shooter is plain ignorance and shows you only scratched the surface of it but even on the surface the game is fun, just not for very long...

    I'm really bummed that they seem to be putting so much effort into 3 (new, high-res assets, etc) but H1 and H2 are left as broken, shriveled versions of their former selves. I mean, It's better than nothing, but stuff like Chimera that fixes crap in the old GearBox PC port (which MCC's H1 uses) seriously goes to show that MS just have different priorities than trying to preserve the game. Oooooooh, awesome, I can change the texture on the Warthog and AR now in H1, oooooooh... Meantime, the audio is borked all over the game, weapons don't fire at the correct pace, promised fixes aren't there. It's really disappointing.

    Apples to oranges. It's fair you don't like Halo 3... But they're not comparable. :rofl2:

    I played their flight (beta) and it felt like the best port yet. So smooth and fun to play. Feel like they've learned a lot since Reach.

    I'd hate to see what you think an original game is... Halo... Generic.. You're hilarious.

    Nice try, kid.

    Waiting for Prime Trilogy to hit the Switch. Halo on PC is just a bonus. Still can't compare the two, though. :grog:

    Halo 4’s probably near if not the worst game in the series honestly. The campaign wasn’t great and the multiplayer was... not good, to say the least. Sucks if that was your only experience with the series.
    3’s still peak Halo to this day IMO

    4 has a lot of qualities that most Halo fans seem to overlook. I don't blame anyone for disliking it, your opinion is your opinion, I just feel that it gets way more hate than it deserves.

    That's fair. I only played halfway through MP3 because I just couldn't find what made the first two amazing to me.

    Now that it's all there, it's finally possible to marathon all of these!

    Halo 4 is decent, only problem I have with Halo 4 is that the levels can be small and too linear but that's due to hardware limitations, the core aspect of the gameplay is a mix of H3 and Reach with weird directions and sprint made people mad but in campaign it wasn't bad, art style is hit or miss, there are stuff I love and stuff I hate in it but overall I liked the game, only main entry in the franchise I really hate is Halo 5, there are too many wrong aspects to it for it to be a good game...

    One of the most overrated video game franchises of all time makes its return to PC!

    Halo 2 and 3 were my teenage life, made it to rank 40 undefeated in Team Doubles on Halo 3 with a high school buddy of mine. Checked my matchmaking history on bungie.net and saw I had 864 matchmade games in three years on Halo 3, and 501 on Halo 2 across one year. That doesn't include what I played when I shared a LIVE account with a friend before I had my own or what I played at LAN parties.

    I played the test flight of Halo 3 when it was live a few weeks ago, still tons of fun!

    You, cher monsieur, are a good man.
    Halo was crafted for console and couch coop, many people seem to forget this.

    Did Forge ever get added or is it still unused?
