In Response To: Re: Future of this place? (Quirel)

: I guess Captain Spark and Snipe already said it. Halo is just dead.
: The original Halo games (and the novels too) had a sort of magic to them, but
: that was over a decade ago. After a decade of 343i failing to capture that
: magic, and largely refusing to even try to capture that magic, the
: community has largely moved on.

: It's not fun to discuss where the books are going and how subtle hints in the
: books will play out later, because the books largely don't matter.

: It's not fun to speculate where the games are going, because the story arc of
: the games can switch fast enough to whiplash the fans. Reach didn't fall
: like it did in the books! Now the Forerunner are returning! Now Cortana is
: back from the dead! Now the Banished are contenders on a galactic scale.
: And all the while we're trying to flesh out the Master Chief and give him
: character, but he gets less interesting with each installment. After
: Infinite, I just don't give a flying fuck. I don't. And the Edgar-suit
: mockery that's in the Halo TV show is even less interesting.

: I hate to be so negative, but the non-event that was Halo: Infinite and the
: trainwreck that is the Halo TV show has really got me down. After the end
: of Halo 3, there was so much potential. And they chose to focus on genetic
: destiny and the Master Chief's character?

I would bet good money that there is going to be a huge shake-up at 343 Industries within the next several months. 343 was given a great opportunity and they trashed it....the upper management needs to be fired.
I said years ago that Microsoft should have given Halo back to Bungie, with a huge check and a thank you.
Halo is dead, in my opinion. But, we still have the older Bungie Halo games to keep playing.
