The Halo series is my second favorite game series of all time. However, I'll admit that Halo 5 is a pretty big disappointment to me, just as Halo 4 (and to some extent Halo: Reach) has been. I feel it's too streamlined and their focus wasn't the same as Bungie's. Not that 343 has done a bad job, just that they're trying too hard to step into Bungie's shoes, instead of trying to make the best Halo game they possibly can. I feel they're too focused on the competitive aspects and what the community wants and what the community will think. When Bungie first made Halo, that wasn't their concern. They were just doing their best to make the best game they could, and did whatever it took to make the story and gameplay interesting and fun. Every match was a different experience, it was rarely the same old thing every time. Now, it feels like I'm going to get the same ol' experience out of every match. Though I will say I may be biased, because I prefer to play games with friends, and don't really have friends to play Halo 5 with at the moment.
