In Response To: Re: All entertainment and no play... (Grizzlei)

: This franchise is more than just a "video game series" nowadays and
: not everyone wants to sit down and have a purely interactive experience.
: They want to chill and find themselves lost in a universe in the same way
: they do with Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. Spielberg's series will
: undoubtedly have a long run, something that we've yet to see for Halo,
: while Scott's and Mimica-Gezzan's project is comparable to Halo 4: Forward
: Unto Dawn. Series like these something have proven their worth and
: popularity, and this series might have possibly happened anyways to
: promote Halo 5, if it won't already.

: In any case, I think the gamers in the Halo fandom have been extremely
: spoiled. In the past five years there have been six games released each
: year - Halo Wars (2009), ODST (2009), Reach (2010), Anniversary (2011),
: Halo 4 (2012) and Spartan Assault (2013) - and one or perhaps two on the
: horizon. Whether they are quality products or not is irrelevant because
: Microsoft holds gamers like yourself in high regard. Film and television
: fans, like myself, have only enjoyed two new additions in that same time
: frame, Legends (2009) and Forward Unto Dawn (2012).

: You can chill for a little while. I'm sure Halo 5 will be pretty cool and you
: can enjoy some awesome shows until it's in your hands! Besides, you have
: nothing to complain about if you're a not a Star Wars fan. :P

I take every opportunity I can to bitch about Halo Wars getting thrown under the bus. Halo may be a multimedia franchise today, but up until late last year the only real non-FPS Halo game was Halo Wars. Which, despite MS shutting down Ensemble Studios, was a successful title. I couldn't care less about yet another FPS game title. And it irked me that they were announcing yet another video project when they haven't even gave details on the current TV project.
