I'm sure they had no intentions of 'stealing' another games fanbase. Think of it more as attracting a larger crowd. Included in that crowd, those who have never played Halo before.

LOL! I highly doubt that...that game was god-awful I heard.

Again, 'failed' is pretty harsh. Halo 4 sold well, there's no denying that. It's still not that good...but it sold well...which is far from failing.

I do agree with some of your points though. FPS's nowadays are terrible. They're all a copy-and-paste from one another. Creativity is lacking. Innovation is lacking. It's the truth.

Multiplayer-wise, I honestly don't expect Halo 5 to be that good. The only reason I will be purchasing Halo 5 is because Halo has one of my favorite Campaigns/Story of any FPS and I sure as hell want to continue the Master Chief's story, especially with Cortana outta the picture.

Thanks to XeroFox for the mighty signature <3
