If you honestly wanna go with Technicalities then may I remind you that despite 343i's best efforts Halo CE Anniversary was Not exactly like the original. Therefore why should the matchmaking be exactly like the original when the majority of the maps aren't even from the original game.
Like I tell lots of people, original is where it is the same. I play MGS and Japanese games (Im not asian, in case if people want to say some jokes) because that is what gaming really is, none of this crap today. Today's gaming sucks. We need to have more games like Silent Hill, MGS (Metal Gear Solid), RES (Resident Evil). Multiplayer games ruined the gaming world. Think of it, without MGS, your games probably would not be as they are now. MGS was the birth of action/stealth gaming, Silent Hill was the birth of Horror/thrillers and suprise. In all of the games RES, Silent Hill, MGS you had to use your brains to develop answers. Gaming has lost it's touch and I think that if we embrace games like MGS and Silent Hill then gaming will not be as crappy as it is now. Quite honestly, 343i... great way to make money too *applause*. What a way to draw in COD fans to the Halo franchise. I know many COD players have left to play Halo. I must also add as a last minute thought, gaming was never really about money or topping the other companies. Each person had their desire and went along with it. Now out-casting true, dedicated fans to draw in new fans is not right. Go ahead say im wrong but you cannot see the reality the world has come to. Agree with me and support deservant companies like Konami and Capcom. Sorry if any errors are made, it is real early in the morning .
