Polygon: Split-screen play is something of a holy thing among many Halo fans, a group in which I consider myself a part. We have memories of inviting friends over to play, sharing a single screen to co-op our way through the campaign or to play against each other. If you had two televisions and two systems, you could play with four players.
Playing the game in this way took up years of my gaming life, and I look back on those memories fondly.
Players growing up with Halo now won't be able to say the same thing. Halo 5 has killed the split-screen option. What the hell?
