Should I give up on Halo?
It's just, Halo has been my favorite game ever since I was a little kid back in Massachusetts. I loved it the first moment I played it. I didn't understand anything but shoot this and punch that. It was excellent. Time went by. As I aged, so did Halo and my love for it. Halo 3 really hooked me. I remember sitting in my room on the floor criss cross playing co-op with my older brother. I remember the joy I felt from being a Sangheili. Halo 3:ODST had good gameplay and a dope sound track. The mythic map pack really interested me. Then Halo Reach zoomed all the way to 2nd best, after Halo 3. Halo 4 came around, Bungie disappeared and 343 emerged. I lost my Elite in Halo 4. Although, I still bought it too support Halo. Firefight also vanished. Sadness swept over me. I'm not trying to sound like a weirdo, but I literally cried when my Elite was gone. I still stayed positive though, or at least tried to. Then... Halo 5. It hasn't been released yet, but I already know much about it. Elites... no, split screen... no, firefight... no, Invasion... no... sigh. I am trying to remain optimistic and support Halo and 343, but what I love about Halo is vanishing. I'm not trying to be a hater or some Bungie-geek, but what do I do? I really can't imagine life without Halo, but I don't recognize it as Halo that much anymore. I'm so conflicted. Call of duty is fun, but it's no Halo, and it never will be. Neither will Battlefield. Every time 343 removes a feature, or adds a very strange one, I cringe. It's just, what should I do? I really don't want the game I've loved for years to die, or to become uninteresting. I love this franchise to death. Please, help me. Anyone.
