Thankyou and Goodbye, Halo (Biggles' Edition)

Recommended Posts

BEFORE READING THIS, I WILL ANSWER A QUICK Q&A YOU MAY HAVE IN YOUR HEAD.

No i have not got an Xbox, i have a PS4.
No I am not leaving the forum.
No I am not bashing or hating on Halo, I just feel like i have lost the passion to play it.
Yes Halo overall is still a great franchise, I just do not want to play it anymore.
Yes i will be making possible ideas and events for Halo even if i do not directly take part in them.

Anyway, moving on.

I still remember the first time i got Halo, i did not get it in the traditional case we now get all of our games in (Unless you use steam or any other type of means of downloading) but instead i got it in a normal CD-ROM Case. I never knew that the next 6-7 years of my life i would spend this much time playing Halo and this much time in general playing games. Halo was the main catalyst for this and the reason i still play games to this day.

But, in recent weeks i have come to the conclusion that, during Halo 4, somewhere down the line I lost the passion and the drive to play Halo at all, i was not finding the game fun and was just not enjoying Halo as a franchise, as i'm sure a lot of you felt about Halo at that time. This to me was much deeper though. I loved halo, my friends loved Halo, it was all we ever played and we played both the casual and competitive side, and it led to me talking and meeting some fantastic people in my life i will never forget. Halo truly is a community game, yeah there are a few people who are trolls and cause problems in the community, but that's fine. I do believe Halo can once again become one as a community with MCC, which comes out in a day. (I'm really excited for you guys)

As a result of this, I have decided not to buy an Xbox one. The Reasons, you ask? Well, here they are.

1) I believe that the PS4 is a much better console and will have many more competitive games than Xbox (Don't hate me on this, PS4 has a LOT more people playing it (10 million vs 5 million sales) and i feel despite MCC coming out, Xbox sales will not honestly change that much, due to the two bad experiences with Halo 4 and Halo Reach (According to opinion. I still stand by the fact Halo reach was the second best halo, behind Halo 2.)

2) I did not want to get an Xbox just for one game. Now i know a lot of you just bought it for Halo and i respect that and understand that, but to me personally that is not a selling point, and i may be wrong somewhere down the line which is still okay, i can accept criticism. But i want to buy a console with a lot of games which i will enjoy more (CoD, Destiny, The Order, The Division, Silent Hills, etc) and i feel that on balance, the PS4 was the better choice for me.

3) I have lost the passion to play Halo, and since that was one of the main selling points to me before i realized this, i just do not see the point of buying an Xbox for a game that i will buy and rarely play.

4) The deal which i got with my PS4 was godly. £400 for 5 games + 12 month membership? Yes please.

5) I have heard a lot of rumors a new xbox is being made and will be released in the next 3 - 4 years (Rumors not confirmed nor links, this is not the Xbox one slim either, literally a brand new remake)

6) I'm a lot happier currently Playing CS, FIFA and CoD then halo, and i feel MCC will not change that much.

7) I feel as if i am losing my competitive edge in Halo, and that means i am losing my drive as well, and tbh you guys are just better and it makes me upset :( ;)

Anyway, you are probably thinking "Well Biggles, why are you saying this on an Xbox/Halo forum?" The reason is because I want you guys to understand why i made my choice and why you will not see me on Xbox anymore. I am not sure if i will buy an Xbox before Halo 5, although i have said i will, this is still no guarantee. I still love Halo guys, and i love you guys, but the passion to me is not there anymore.

As for my series regarding making people better, obviously since i do not play and will not be able to play Halo anymore i obviously cannot make the series anymore. However that is not the end, I am trying to get someone to continue the series for me (With my guidance) and try to make it an even better series than before. I do not want to give up on you guys and you do not understand fully how unbelievably hard it has been to type this, but i feel the Biggles era of Halo has ended. For me personally, it is time to move on.

Thank you very much for reading.

Biggles.

Well I have to say I can understand where you are coming from and I was tempted to do the same myself.

I understand. I've seen this from my friends already, I don't blame you for it. If Halo wasn't an Xbox exclusive, I promise you I'd get a PS4 too. I was a PlayStation kid before anyway. Sometimes, it's just better to move on. I'm really glad you are staying here though. I was actual scared this was a thread of your goodbye. Rekindling the passion can happen, but whatever happens it's your decision and we should all respect it. Have fun on the PS4 Biggles. Perhaps one day we can see you on the virtual battlefield again eh?

I can understand all your feelings on this subject.  Call it getting older, or our preferred tastes changing, whatever.  I get it and I am right there with you.

I hope you have made  the right decisions.

Straight to the point, questions answered, and dead honest. I like it.

 

It's a shame that you've lost interest, you were a skilled player. Good to see that you'll still be on the forum though.

I think I'm in the same boat as yourself.

Still, haven't bought an Xbone or Peeessfor yet, so I haven't committed to anything yet.

 

But GG Biggles. GG.
