I picked up Halo 3 the day it came out, too, and I played an absurd amount of Halo 3 on Xbox Live. This game was nowhere near as good as Halo 2 but was, in my opinion, the last good Halo game out there. After Halo 3 came Halo: Reach which introduced a lot of things I did not like such as “bloom” and fall damage. Halo 4 came out next and I was not impressed by the game. Some time between Halo: Reach and Halo 4 I had found League of Legends and was enthralled in that at the time.
In November of 2017 I bought an Xbox One and picked up Halo 5: Guardians and The Master Chief Collection. Halo 5 is a bit different than other Halo games but all in all it is quite fun. I enjoyed the campaign of this game but I disliked the ending. The online ranking system is a lot like League of Legends’ but the online system is much smoother than previous Halo games and I am enjoying playing online. Feel free to add me on Xbox Live, my gamertag is ThaggleS is SiK.
