    I just played one game. People have already ruined it.

    I just got a Xbox One X for black friday and proceeded to replay:
    Halo Reach
    MCC: Halo
    MCC: Halo 2
    MCC: Halo 3
    MCC: Halo 4
    MCC: Halo 4: Spartan Ops
    ...it took me about 2 months but I finally got to play Halo 5... it puzzles me that they seems to of repackaged Spartan Ops season 2 as Halo 5 and threw in a couple Master Chief levels as a bonus, the levels are tiny compared to previous games, so yeah very disappointed really

    Quelle dedication. Nice!

    I really enjoyed 5 though :) when i go back to some earlier ones some of the maps feel a bit longwinded and boring.

    Tiny? Not felt that before.

    I keep meaning to start such an epic myself!

    @ControlledChaos That's awesome! I have just picked up a one and all the halo games. I am thinking of going through some of these games again, which ones do you think have held up?

    Aye, same. It's been a while since my last marathon (would have been before 5 launched). It's about time.

    Also, I don't think the levels are tiny at all. Can't quite wrap my head around that tbh, especially as they're at the very least wider than pretty much every mission in 2 and 4, and often far more vertical than any other game in the series - there are some massive arenas and combat bowls in this game.

    I suppose, given sprint and the new movement abilities, you could probably race through them quickly, but I don't think that makes the levels small.

    If 6 is really not this year I think I'll buy an X alongside it and do the run. I want to see what 5 is like with hardware that can handle its aspirations.

    If I had time, I'd love to go through it on the X, but that's unlikely, and I'm not aiming to buy it again.

    However, if it happened to end up on GwG at some point, that'd be nice.

    It's in Game Pass, isn't it?

    It might be, but I'm trying to avoid shelling out for that, I already have EA access and am reluctant to end up with too many subs just now.

    Maybe in time I'd go down that route, but then I'd never buy any new games.

    If Duffman ever goes down that route games developers are screwed given how many times he buys various games! ;-)

    There's a one month trial, unless you've redeemed it already?

    Ha! :D

    I still have the 3 month thing from the one x box, but i still ain't using it. I know it'd end up costing me.

    With the MCC pretty much all of them hold up pretty well, Halo 3 being the most dated, I think they used Reach as a benchmark in the BC design, weird thing is with MCC anniversary modes have the sound mixed really badly, such that the incidental music drowns out incidental dialog particularly from Cortana which is a shame, turn off enhancements and the sound changes to the original levels where yoeu can hear what is said... Halo 2 is my fav Halo story wise, Reach probally has better lvl design imo but with no Chief it loses points imo. I like Halo 4, the prometheans are much more fun to fight than the flood. I played Spartan Ops Solo, and I died alot, the instant respawn took me out of it abit and they over did the number of enemies, it does feel they addresses these issues in 5 with and ai squad that would revive you some time and enemy waves cut, still didn't feel like a proper Halo

    From my dated memory I'd say halo 3, reach, CE, odst, 2, 4, 5. In that order. I might get the MCC at some point to play through them.

    3 and reach are so much better than 4 and 5. The gameplay is still great in those later ones but the story and settings are pretty average for the most part. And the promethions? are so boring.

    I was just 15 and 0 and someone on my own team betrayed me near the end of the match :@

    With all GoW games, Halo 5, Halo MCC, Sunsst Overdrive, Quantum Break, Resident Evil etc on Game Pass, it's really good value. I do wonder if it's a test run for MS before they adopt a wholesale netflix model for first party stuff.

    I am the bane of the Prophets. I arrive from the shadows, unseen by enemy eyes, and I will wreck havoc on all of the OMG I'VE BEEN SHOT IN THE FACE BY AN AIRBORNE PERSON.

    He started moving when you were looking right where he was standing. Does he not know moving = look at me, I'm a person of average visibility now? The airborne snapshot probably had him screaming into his mic about aimbots and hackers :p

    I just saw this posed as one of the solutions to 'fix' Halo.

    Stop with the pistol BS. Its not a fun gun to use at all and it wont be ever.
    I can't even wrap my head around this as an opinion. It's just so utterly wrong. I feel like up must be down for them.
