By classic I mean, no Armor Abilities, no sprint, just new maps and weapons. No button combo's a la BxR or RRX.
Regardless, I think they will do better with Halo 5 than they did with Halo 4, which is FAR from failure. It's great, but it needs a little help on the balance end of things.
I think it would be a refreshing change to the ever complicating world of FPS's. I'm under the impression they can't do much more to innovate; so why not regress a little bit, get some depth out of simplicity?
as long as there's no teamwork involved (as in you bust your rear downing the enemy's shields while all the other guy contributes is deliver the killing blow and receive full credit for it), I don't mind going back to classics.
Chuck Norris doesn't need to run for president, he's already won.
