In Response To: Should Halo have an end? (serpx)

: Many great stories of our time have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Now,
: it appears that there are stories out there that just keep going, and
: going, and going. Comic books do this. I feel like Halo is going in that
: direction. Is that beneficial? Should Halo have that?

: Personally, I feel like the story of Halo comes in arcs. As long as it has
: that, I'm happy. There's a beginning, middle, and end to the
: Human-Covenant war (somewhat). Now, we appear to be in the age of deeper
: understanding of the Forerunners.

: There are differences when it comes to video games versus a novel/movie in
: storytelling. Just curious on your thoughts to this matter.

I don't know if should have an end or not. I do think it should have a rest, and continue to rest every now and then, I think that's what's best for the universe and the franchise. By "rest", I mean I think it should have a period of a few years (or more) where nothing Halo-related comes out, or at least nothing major (which would leave action figures, art books, re-issues of novels, stuff like that). I think if Bungie had sole ownership of Halo they would be giving it a rest, if not now then a few years ago or a few years from now, and I think that Microsoft will need a lot of evidence to be convinced to do this, and if they ever are convinced that evidence will almost definitely come in the form of a major drop in sales.
