I’ve had this game since launch, haven’t played it for THAT long.
I saw in the halo infinite preview that you could change your control layout and (silly me) in halo 5 I never looked at that. I since halo reach I always played “recon” layout and I was surprised to see in halo 5 that there is a recon lay out as well. My only con about this game was that it had a call of duty controller layout. Now that I’m playing halo 5 with a more classic lay out I believe I’m enjoying it more than ever! Still… the aim jet hover, Spartan charge, and ground pound still seem wild after playing mcc and switching in between the two.
When I first Spartan charged into a wall and crushed it I thought it was “Spartan like”, and cool, the hover is still odd to me, cool, but I never thought I’d see that in a game I guess.
Forge and custom games are cool too. I never played it much. Custom game browser never worked for me, matches not joking or drop or what not, last night I played a custom game browser game and it was good. It felt like halo, because it’s was a silly looking map doing crazy yoink, that’s what halo 3 custom games to me was about. I mean just look at all the crazy weapon varieties they created, I liked that a lot.
Campaign, I play solo but just the fact that it was never co-op would be my con for the story mode…
So all and all I still play halo 5 because I feel I missed some stuff and it’s cool to go back and see “the halo game” that virtually split the player community. I say that with love, because I have talked to players and it was always a love or a hate or both relationship. For example if you talk to someone playing MCC they’ll say halo 5 “is trash”, if you talk to someone playing halo 5 they’ve said to me that they love it or they’re just grinding and will quite after they’re max, or that they’re a bit of both. Or you got the people who just gave up and never played the game…
So I’ll end with this, and long as you’re having fun then you’re playing video games correctly.
