What we perceive as 'memorable' or 'groundbreaking' is nothing more than experiencing something great for the first time. At this point you are desensitized and nothing will 'stick' as much.
You can argue all you want about how terrible the maps are or about how 'halo' is dead, but in reality you're just figuring out how your own brains perceive things. Stop wasting your money. Do something else.
