Debating with advice doesn't make much sense. You're right.

My way of thinking is H1 > H3 > H2.

Halo 1 was as close to perfect as you can get in gaming. The campaign could be played for hours without growing bored of it, the multiplayer was both fun and competitive and it was simple.

Halo 2 is where they f..ked up. Dual wielding + terrible lunge system + auto aim + a terrible online server = no fun. Sure, Halo 2 was kinda fun on LAN and I loved the fast paced gameplay, but if you don't attend MLG's (aka hand over all your monies) it wasn't a very fun experience.

Halo 3 is, in my opinion, a good game. Sure, it'll never be Halo 1 and sure, it'll never be a PC game, but why complain so much? Yes, the BR spread needs some work and there are other inconsistencies that make it irritating at times, but the server is much better for Halo 3 than for Halo 2, making online gaming more fun.

I'd be lying if I said I was paying attention the whole time for your video, but you're taking things too far. Don't get me wrong Cursed, I love the way you put things and I love your videos, but you honestly complain about this game more than you play it. I mean, instead of learning how to compensate for the BR spread, learning the angles of the game and playing at a higher level, you chose to complain. Sure, there are things that needed to be changed, but no game is perfect. Halo 1 had problems too, but there was nothing to compare it to. Then with Halo 2, all the H1 pros b..ched and complained and some of them stuck it out to win, oh I don't know, almost every MLG event. Now with Halo 3, FB isn't on top and all you can do is complain and make excuses. It's getting annoying.

You know why people say, "If you don't like it, don't buy it"? Because it's the truth. Your answer is to go play Shadowrun? Do that. Leave the Halo gaming to those that actually took the time to learn the game.

EDIT 2 - I'd like to add that 90% of the people that complain about all the bullsh.t of Halo 3 suck at it or can't grasp simple concepts.

My internet hasn't changed. Before, I aimed where I thought I should and my shots weren't registering. I blamed it on connection and you went along with it.

I learned how to shoot properly and my shots are registering a lot better and all of a sudden my internet's the difference. Don't get me wrong, internet has a lot to do with Halo 3 online (duh), but my internet hasn't changed and my shots are hitting better.

EDIT - I'm not saying everything is dependent on knowing how to shoot. My first post was mainly out of annoyance with Cursed rather than the argument of why Halo 3 sucks.

I'm honestly laughing right now because I don't remember telling you that you were allowed to argue with me.

How would they lose their money? Everyone already bought their game.
Explain, please.

You'd have a hard time telling me how H3 is "more fun" than H2.

I'm not sure I see the difference.

You can't "learn your way around" the sh*tty netcode and BR inconsistencies, and every other ridiculous angle of the gameplay. That's the point. If you could, nobody would be complaining. And it has nothing to do with FB's performance, learn to recognize a hyperbolic statement when you see one.

I learned how to play Halo 3. I hated it, and I have perfectly good reasons why.
