Don't hate you for liking something different than I like.
How you feel about slow halo is how some of us feel about fast halo. Now imagine if infinite actually featured slow halo over fast halo like you prefer, feels awful doesn't it? You'd have people on the forums telling you to go back to halo 5, go find another game, adapt (even if you're better at slow halo theoretically instead of fast halo), no one cares about your opinion, yada yada yada. Now imagine the vast majority of the other fps on the market are similar to slow halo instead of fast halo so you basically have no where to go, again feels awful doesn't it?
But you can always go back to your old game right? Well now imagine that you actually like some quality of life improvements that new games have compared to the old ones or that you aren't blinded by nostalgia enough to look past each of the games flaws (every one of them are flawed in some way, hate to break it to each of you who think the past halo's are perfect). So you could go back to the old game you like, and give up any modern quality of life improvements that more recent games have gotten.
Appreciate your willingness to accept differences of opinion.
I’m certainly in the mindset that if Infinite’s gameplay isn’t as good as what I felt preceded it then I’d have reason to continue playing what preceded it. For me, that’s primarily going to be Halo 5, but I do find enjoyable aspects with all of the previous titles. It’s honestly a reason why I wasn’t 100% keen on Infinite essentially becoming a carbon copy of Halo 5 or any previous title even though I wanted much of H5’s QoL improvements from a gameplay perspective to be carried over. And thankfully for me it appears much of that is happening.
As for the going back to these past titles and wanting particular QoL evolutions within them I hope you’re giving that feedback to those working on the MCC. I know that some of your thoughts probably would be opposed by purists, but it never hurts to share your opinion even if it’s unlikely to occur. I’ve shared several QoL improvements that I really want to see added to the titles within the MCC, but I also know that some of them are likely super long shots to ever happen. Nevertheless, got to share them or they won’t be known to the developers or others who may also agree.
