I stopped reading at Destiny being better.

Comparing two different kinds of games here, and besides that, it just screams "Bungie Fanboy" on my end. I can't really take a biased opinion, that's being thrown as fact, seriously. Sorry.
I like Bungie, sure. Activision, not at all. Fan boy? Only for Arsenal Football Club. I am not saying what I believe is fact. I'm glad you like Halo 5, and I don't think it's a poorly made game, but I HATE it and because I spent money on it I am going to complain about how bad it is on this forum for one week then I will sell the game back and be done with it.
If it is causing you this much disgust, why not sell it immediately to someone who could potentially enjoy it? I lack sympathy for someone that has only put in ten hours and is having a bad time. Try some of the modes that you hate and get better at them and you will have a more enjoyable experience. Comparing Destiny and Halo 5 shouldn't be your basis for argument. I enjoy both titles because they are so diverse. I am not a big fan of the crucible, but I enjoy patrols and missions; I prefer multiplayer with Halo. Just give it more time, it's a brand new game with a different system.
I am very disappointed. Actually 10 hours in and I really HATE it. I mean like actually DESPISE it. This game doesn't even resemble fun and it's not close. I'm not saying it's a poorly designed game, I'm just saying it isn't fun to play. I am trying hard to like H5 like I have loved all the other Halo games. But I am just not having fun at all. Yes, I suck so enjoy pointing out my paltry k/d spread, but that has never been a problem before in Halo games.

Destiny is just better and it's not close.I like games where I feel like the character I control is powerful. All the Spartans feel really weak, especially on legendary, and there is no way to power them up. You just have to slog through. We were dying to grunts and dogs, so it was cower back as far as you can and hope to pick one off and move up slightly. It's just not fun when the enemies are 100x more powerful than you. I guess I could play an easier difficulty, but there is literally no incentive to.

Multiplayer is not better. It's either 4 v 4 or 12 v 12. It's either too small, or too big, and nothing in the middle. The TTK is either way too long or way too short, it never finds a fair balance. I hate warzone, I have always hated SWAT and FFA, and I am not even going to try Breakout because I would be watching way more than playing. There is nothing else. Nothing. The "robust" multiplayer is a load of crap. There are like 5 modes and they all suck for one reason or another.

The REQ system is not good either. All I get are Mongoose and Needlers which do nothing when the opponent has a fuckign tank. Someone with a higher level is always going to have an advantage and guess what, you can essentially BUY more levels with cash. I guess it's kind of cool to have so many helmets and armor and gun skins, but that's the problem. There are so many, none of them feel special. Everyone looks so different they look the same. Then it's just cards and waiting to level up. Again, just not fun.

The grenades are out of control, and I know grenades are a huge part of Halo, but they are 90% of the game on smaller maps. I managed to kill someone and they literally dropped SIX grenades. I mean why even have a gun at that point? You can't hide at all after you take damage (not to mention the insane amount of time it takes to recharge shields) because of hail of 12 grenades coming down on you. I like having 1 grenade every 45 seconds like in Destiny. And there are only 3 kinds of grenades. Not fun.

No co-op modes beyond campaign really sucks, too. Maybe if I could have fun shooting aliens with my friends I would enjoy it. But the campaign isn't good enough, long enough or incentivized enough to make me want to play it more than once (and I really don't even want to do that). The 1 min cool down on respawn in campaign sucks and that is literally the ONLY PVE. There were several times I respawned unfairly after waiting a minute and literally spent 2-3 minutes dead without getting to even fire my weapon. It is literally not fun.

I was so hyped for Halo 5, but 2 days in and I am missing Destiny. It's far from a perfect game, but at least it has options and is fun to play. This is just frustration upon frustration and I don't see myself playing much longer. People complain about $40 for TTK but this is the worst $60 I have ever spent. I feel completely ripped off. I literally don't know if I can find the strength to put that crappy game back in the drive. It is truly awful. Make it a fun game and I will play.

I would love for someone to tell me what I am missing.

TL;DR Your favorite game sucks.
H8rs gon h8 bruh.

Absolutely loving this game! only complaint is the sleeping teamate every couple of games lol. But that comes with the matchmaking territory

I'd like to hear reasons why you think that and then see if your complaints apply to this piece of junk. I bet they would.
It's a boring grindfest with no substance, no story, large parts of it have been ripped out to be sold to you later at a retardedly high price etc.

Does H5 have problems? Yes it does, but those can be fixed with no major issues. And lol, you're complaining about H5 only having a few modes at launch? Have you played any other Halo at launch? This isn't the first time that's happened kiddo.
If you prefer destiny go and play that. Most people here enjoy the game and won't agree with you, so this thread achieves nothing. Congrats!

Destiny is an MMO. Halo 5 is an action/adventure fps with an emphasis on balance, competitiveness and skill.

If you want supers, raids, strikes and other co-op activities, loot drops with various stats, exotic pieces to find in the wild, and overall unbalanced gameplay, just play Destiny and stop expecting other games to be it.

Otherwise, let those of us who want to play Halo 5 do so in peace. Your hate is misplaced and completely unnecessary.
Stopped reading at "destiny is better"

Sounds like you're just not into competitive MP which is fine. If you honestly think a mp game where the only PVP mode is a mode that's even more random and gear dependent than COD then obviously this kind of game just isn't for you, no need to wrote a novel about it.
Tl;Dr stopped reading at destiny is better.
Same here, Destiny what? I love this game!
I finished legendary solo. If you die against grunts you really suck. And that's not a reason to hate a game.
You can hate it for an awful story but not because it's not easy.

Destiny doesn't blow it is a fun game just like h5 is a fun game. Not sure what bothers me more h5 hating trolls or 343 fanboys that hate on destiny. Kek
Nobody could get me to hate my favorite game (Which isn't Halo 5). Even so, Halo 5 is a crowning achievement in this series and deserves more recognition, less hate.
So you haven't even played enough matches to get ranked in PvP, but you feel that you can speak on it... interesting. I have played over 700 hours of Destiny and really love it, but it is not Halo. Halo is where I go for the REAL PvP, competitive, fun, fast, skill intensive. I have played a ton of Destiny PvP, and love the game, but Halo just beats it in so many ways. Now on the PvE side, I can't give an opinion since I haven't played campaign yet, similar to how you can't give a valid opinion on PvP. But when I want to play multiplayer now, I am playing Halo.

Very reasonable response. Thanks for the encouragement. I am just struggling to find the fun in this game and I hope I do. I see my friends having fun with it and am sad I am not. I definitely thought about selling it, but don't think 10 hours is really enough time. I hated Dark Souls at first, now it's the best franchise out there in my opinion.

I've played every Halo game at launch, so certainly not a kiddo. This is the worst one and it's not close. Do you honestly think 343 sin't going to charge for more maps?

Congrats on being awesome. Put it on your resume, maybe it will get you a job.

Not true. I played all the other Halo games multiplayer. I play Destiny multiplayer. I just don't like the grenade driven small map meta and the vehicle driven large map meta. i type fast so writing long things isn't an issue.
You can have your opinion. But don't state it as if it's a fact. Trade the game in and go back to Destiny. Cya.

That's totally not correct. My hate is placed right where it is supposed to be. This is the place for negative feedback.

You did have a point about comparing to Destiny. It's certainly apples to oranges in many ways.

I never stated it as fact. I told my reasons and backed it up with evidence. That's it. I am goign to go back to Destiny once I am finished explaining why the best franchise in gaming is no longer that.

I hate many games, but I'd rather play games I love then spend time on the respective forums moaning about them ...
