Satellite internet and gaming

Hello, I am new to internet gaming and my son and I are also going to build our first PC. So, my question is can we play games such as Halo 5 and the like on Hughs Net satellite internet.
I have a gaming friend and he seems to think it will not work. I must say that the internet sometimes in poke your eye out slow at times. I do not want to spend $$$ on a build and it not working thanks Chokyi

Yeah, unfortunately, satellite is terrible for online gaming.

Since you are playing multiplayer games, I would think not. Sorry, about it. You could try something like Google Fi or Project Loon if it ever comes near you.

Probably not and Halo 5 isn't on PC...Also use Speedtest.net to get your ping, download, and upload speed from a sever that is in like lets say Europe because it is unlikely that a sever for gaming is going to be close to you.

if they still use a phone connection for upload, then definitely not.
