I've never played Halo is it worth getting on PC?

Interested in the reviews on this, but I fear it's going to be positive even if the port is shit due to nostalgia. I've never played Halo, so it'd be good to finally see what all the hype is about.

I tried to get into War of the Chosen twice and ended up parking the game both times. I think fighting the Chosen and the Lost is too much of a chore. Regular Squad versus Pod is the good shit, and to me the expansion gets you spending too much time doing not that. I'm now into a straight XCom 2 Long War run, and I am having much more fun so far.
Eh, the Chosen aren't that tough as long as you figure out how they work. Really the troublesome one is the assassin, and then you just bring battlefield scanners to see her. The other two are kinda weak, unless you happen to run into the summoner one in an underground level. The sniper literally never does anything, because you have to stand still in his sights for a whole round for him to get a shot off, which makes him useless.
The lost can get boring, yeah, although I enjoy just mowing through entire hordes of them.
In any case, for those who want to try this out, please note that vanilla Xcom2 is a bit... I dunno, underwhelming, I'd say, compared to Xcom with Enemy Within. War of the Chosen, however, makes it a fantastic game. Truly one of the better expansion packs to be made in a long time. (really I'd only put the Witcher 3's expansions above it, to be honest.)

I'll just repost this...
So while the con men were over in their corner of Dry Town selling their cure-all tonics, Sean rolled into the thirsty desert town promising to build a well for anyone for $2. People forked over their money, eager at the prospect of being provided their own water sources. When it came time to start building however, Sean only brought a bucket for each person.
There was an uproar. Some returned their buckets (and were suitably reimbursed their $2). Most kept theirs begrudgingly and drank from the small offerings that they had been given.
Over time though Sean would return to town, despite the hisses and rotten vegetables being flung in his direction. Always with a larger bucket filled to the top for each and everyone who held on to their original. Till one day, the denizens of Dry Town walked out unto their front porches to find a well of near-eternal fresh water next to every homestead of those who had kept their buckets.
Not KX's home, however. No. He stood slanted against the KXwalls of his KXhome, arms crossed, pistol at his side. All the while delivering Sean a most dour glare. No Sean, you will find no forgiveness in this dark KXHeart. Not this day.

These developers are rock stars worthy of worship for stcking around and improving their game. god bless'em
And Sean Murray is still a liar who used fraud to build these continuous updates.
Dude, give it a rest.
No. Not until I get my $60 worth, and I will get my money's worth one way or another.

If I can't cut off arms with circular saw blades I'm not playing. Pfft, "Chasm."
Anyway, Darks, people here frequently post that misleading image trying to show that FPS level design in the 1990s was superior to now. I think lots of people want a more simple game sometimes. And there's a lot of depth and cool mechanics you can add to a platformer now that you couldn't back then.

Same thing as John Romero. He spoke purely from his ego and the PC Elite really can't stand hubris paired with mediocre products.

And Blizzard is offering full refunds to those that cannot meet the new requirements right?
I personally have never bought, or played it, but if anyone's computer does not match the new minimum requirements, by law, they are required to to offer a full refund of the price the person paid, or some way to play the game in another way.
There is already case presidence for this.
