@gamerbum: Perfect Dark's enemy AI surpassed it before Halo even came out. Again, Halo is not special, it was just a lot of people's first experience.

@gamerbum: I love it when people post stupid things like this. I wouldn't be caught dead paying for multiplayer.

@gunnyninja: If the people parceled off into working on the DLC instead worked on the full game, it could be in the full game at launch.

I don't know why you're giving EA the benefit of the doubt. Good lord, dude. EA. What the hell have they done to earn it from you? Shall I link the story of how they're apologizing for ripping players off in Apex Legends? How about the "surprise mechanics"?

Nothing "went wrong" - this is how EA developers work. They do the most possible to screw over their players, but if there's too much backlash they dial it back a little bit and pretend they're sorry. This has happened over and over and over. Every predatory manipulative microtransaction is just them pushing the envelope in seeing how much they can get away with, how high a price they can get away with.

These things don't happen without their knowledge. This went through multiple people and approvals before it magically made its way into the game. Had no one complained, they would have done nothing except cash the checks.

How anyone was fooled into thinking Apex Legends was different than the rest of the EA library of trash is beyond me.

@bouchart: Halo was like Goldeneye. It came at the right time and provided a competent mass multiplayer experience for console shooters that had been lacking to that point.

It wasn't anywhere near the quality of shooters on PC at the time like Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress. Counterstrike, and Quake 3, but controller using console players were blissfully ignorant. Microsoft's strange marketing gimmicks like ilovebees went viral and built hype for the first couple sequels. Once it was popular, it remained so regardless of its shortcomings, like Call of Duty.

Go back and play Goldeneye now and wonder what the hell you ever saw in the game with sluggish terrible controls and bad gunplay. Halo is the same.

@blueinheaven: Forza, Halo, Gears, the big three in Microsoft exclusives all have microtransactions now.

@gunnyninja: We have them announcing it exists now. Therefore it's cut to be sold back. They could have included it with the game but they're intentionally planning for it not to be.

@boardsport311: Yeah, it's a perfect example of how good a game is when the devs don't even consider adding microtransactions.

What a joke. Player first, right Phil? Money first is the actual truth.
