So the one that confuses me the most that some people complained about is the gameplay. Why exactly? When I play Halo 5, I see a game that finally evolved into something truly modern, it has its own unique signature gameplay mechanics that I hope will stay in the franchise for years to come.
I really enjoyed Halo 5, and please note this is merely my opinion. I just don't know why people will post messages like "I'm f&**^&ing selling my xbox Halo is dead" etc. It's becoming a dank meme at this point.
I agree, on this point, and gameplay is probably the most important item in a game. There will always be better stories in other mediums, because a show, movie, book, or comic will usually live or die by its story, but a game will live or die by its gameplay. None of the old games had Oscar winning narratives, I loved them, but if you were not a fan of sci-fi tropes, you probably weren't a fan of it. The story shown on more to me in the Nylund novels, and I feel 5 was trying to bring more of this into the game, which is clearly difficult. Gameplay wise, I think 5 is the best its ever been... but again this is just my humble opinion.
