In Response To: Halo 5 thoughts (Schooly D)

: Stepping back, if we look at the bigger picture and put some of these puzzle
: pieces together, we can see something interesting. There are, in my
: estimation, two major movements in modern gaming. One is player
: investment. The other is eSports.

: Regardless, if we look at their games, I think we can discern both Bungie's
: and 343's visions for the long-term future of gaming, and I think that's
: interesting.

Esports ain't happening man. It's nice, and the culture is very demanding and those demands are generally the antithesis of artful games. You can absolutely design a competitive game that is artful (the list of such games is long), but the trend now with dota type shit is a step backwards.

I think this is where we disagree, but I think the REAL future of video games as an art form lies in single player and co-op. I hope 343 doesn't skimp on these elements.
