The general sentiment of the MLG community (I'm an active poster on their forums) is that H3 was the worst Halo game in terms of competitive play. Yes, even Reach is regarded as being better than H3 for competitive play, bloom and armor abilities and all. Halo CE and H2 are 1st and 2nd, respectively, obviously.
Personal opinion I suppose. I do recall in the first few months of the game, there were some horrible hitbox issues. I remember sniping someone in the head, seeing blood come out, and having said person keep full shields. However, after 1.1 I really never saw such issues again. I'm also an infrequent poster on MLG forums (more active on Bungie.net), and frankly I don't recall ever seeing the sentiment that Halo 3 was the worst
. I never claimed to be a professional player, but I do consider myself fairly skillful (50 in Doubles/Team Slayer in H3). I could never consider Reach more competitive than H3. Agree to disagree, I suppose.
Now, as for why I liked Halo 3 so much, I absolutely loved the Forge/Theater mode additions, and the custom gametype options. Honestly, custom games for me were just as big a factor as competitive play. I spent hours/days/months doing both. ~2k ranked matches and ~2k custom games in H3 if I recall correctly.
EDIT: I'd just like to thank you for not resorting to memes, insults, and condescending remarks. I'm genuinely thankful some people are still able to voice their disagreements without acting like children here.
