Halo 2 and 3 are two of the best arena MP shooters of all time! They are basically the definition of console competitive play.

Getting these back with better online infrastructure, enhanced frame rate and visuals is a fucking god send.

So much effort and love is being poured into this collection, it's astounding!

And hopefully Halo 5 will follow in their footsteps.

I played the shit out of them, especially 3, so I'd like to think I do "understand". I just don't see it though. Framerate was rarely a problem for the Halo series and while the visuals have usually not been mindblowing, they were serviceable. Online infrastructure have always been pretty good AFAIK.

Sure, Halo (along with CoD) have effectively the best mechanics in the shooter genre but this really doesn't bring anything much to the table except for compiling four old games and making them conveniently accessible on a new console. Why are people so easily excited?
