X250 posted...Ultima_Wraith posted...But has been admitted many times before there will always be people that will buy Halo 5 for the sake of it being Halo 5. As long as that core base is enough to overtake their profit line, they will go onward. There are always going to be the fanboys that will eat it all up no matter what. I'm sure offhand you could probably name at least 5 without breaking a sweat that I couldn't name. It's just the way it is in the long run. Profit > Innovation. If a popsicle stick could be sold for 5$ each, why invest money in developing one that's more expensive to produce?
I can name you some that make games that can both make money and please their fanbase.
Here's a hint: That's almost every company ever at some point.
343i can take the route of Sega if they want though, making games that are shells of their former selves til no one has interest in it anymore.

I wish 343 would have had to make a game without halo in the name so they could see how badly it would crash and burn. Lucky for them, the game does have halo in it and they inherited a loyal base of fans who will never deny the game is bad.
Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

It "doesn't make sense" because those people only play for a month or two and move on to different games, which means not buying 343's precious DLC.

this is lame that its not visible. A good comparison is to online gambling sites. The majority of their money is made of from the casual poker player. However they all do a pretty good job of catering to both the casual player and the competitive player. I don't see why Halo can't cater to both. There should be social and ranked playlists(w visible rank). Personally I thought Halo 3 did this best and nothing has compared to lonewolves for me as far as the competitiveness in each game and a noticeable increase in competition the higher up you went.
They have the all the power to properly direct the traffic where it should go just like online casinos do. I think we could all agree that the playlists could definitely improve.
Maybe instead of listing them all out, put them into categories like Reach and H3 did. Halo is a game of skill, very much like poker is, and it doesn't make sense to alienate your hardcore players because they are more likely to be the ones buying your DLC and future products, which is a big portion of your profits. I tend to think a casual gamer is less likely to buy dlc especially if they just aren't that into the game. So it would not make sense to completely ignore them, but I do believe 343 is doing their best to please all types of gamers.

URBANLEG3ND posted...Good point. Certainly can't argue with that. It would be nice to see both *sides* happy. Although, I have to admit...I don't ever see that happening. It just gets old seeing competitive players calling casuals worthless, lazy, blah blah blah...and casuals calling competitive players no lifers, or whatever. Why can't we all just play the damn games? Instead, people would rather argue about who is better, etc...when, in a few years, none of the people arguing will care anymore.
You say that...but I constantly hear people complaining about how so many players don't use their mic, which leads to little team work. One of the main reasons people either don't use a mic, or stay in a private party, is because of the attitudes of both sides. Someone makes a mistake, and they get cursed out. People play very well, and they get called names...and cursed out. It may not have anything to do with the actual mechanics of the game, but I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy the game more if they didn't have to plan on being cursed out, called names, threatened, etc... Most would argue that you don't have to listen if you don't like...but that's the whole point, isn't it?
