Just played some Halo 3 again...

Oh man... I miss when Halo used to be like this. I could find myself taking on 2-3 guys at once with a BR and lining up 4-shots to take them all out. I miss running up to someone and smacking them right in the face. I miss old Armor Ability-less, Perk-less Halo. It's just the best. Feels so much fun to jump around feeling light, beating people down and taking on multiple dudes at once with BR skill. A shame that it's kinda hard to find matches now... man, those were some amazing days.

Reach killed that and 4, while it felt better, still didn't take me back. Nothing beats classic Halo :(

From the looks of Titanfall, this may be a good game to feel light, jump around and smack people in the face? I'd love that, if the physics of the game allowed such things. Looks to be the new Halo for the next generation.

I have no faith in Halo anymore. They wanted to make it more like COD lately, and I honestly don't see anything changing with Halo 5.

Berate me for my opinions if you wish, but nostalgia is hittin' me hard right now.

RIP Classic Halo :(

Halo 3 was probably my favorite Halo. Hopefully, Halo 5 is more like the classic titles and not like Reach and 4(which were still good by the way).

After i booted up Halo 3 to play again after years, my first reaction was that it felt a lot more dated then my nostalgia led me to believe. No sprint seems completely stupid (you are a super soldier for crying out loud), and the controls felt awkward and the re-configurations that you could choose from werent very good (should have been able to re-map all the buttons).

I also liked the way melee worked in Reach as opposed to Halo 3, and i also liked the way the health meter and related features worked in Reach as opposed to Halo 3. And nearly all of the guns in Halo 3 are garbage other than the BR, (making weapon variety nonexistent).

Halo 3 definitely has its own issues, as well as Reach and Halo 4. Im curious to see what direction Halo 5 will take the MP.

yet the masses loved it and it made a truck load of cash but we all have opinion's , for example I think the metalgear r game should have cost no more than $15 and been a arcade title it was horrible with invisible walls every were and you being a cyborg ninja but could not jump over cars or a small fence and the crap two button fighting style . Also how about that mess that they call sports games they should cost $20 no more . They are just lame copies and near duplicates of the same game the year before and still $^%$%^ still go but them when all the company's need to do is a roster update because the graphics and stuff in game change every 3 years so . lol that's why used sports titles are worth nothing and most places wont touch a sports game that is over year old.

Halo 2 was the best Halo. 3 was alright but after how great 2 was it just felt like a slight let down. I loved Reach but it didnt "feel" like a true Halo. 4 is actually decent and really shines in game modes without the abilities but the maps are mostly junk. I cant wait for 5 though.

Halo 4 was so much better than Reach. Still not perfect, but it a damn good first attempt by 343. Especially post-launch
