Halo Discussion Thread

I've been rereading through my collection of Halo Books(Yes I have everyone, even the Graphic Novels) and so I decided to make this thread to discuss anything Halo Related, and even if needed I can explain the Story to you, because just going off the games maybe confusing.

Halo was the game that set the next standard for FPS on consoles. Improving upon what Goldeneye was known for, and improving upon it by including vehicles, and several unique weapons. One thing Halo really didn't have was an rememorible story, which was why most people didn't like Halo 3 cause it felt like it just kind of threw story at you, and it made no sense, unless you payed a lot of attention to the Story of the first two. Also it helps to read the books(I know shocker, Halo junkies who can read! Also the books are Canon) to fill in some plot holes.

On a side note, the reason why you can never be the exact Green Master Chief is, is because he is the last surving(Linda may still be alive, but last we knew she was still in the cryo tube) of the Green Team. Along with Green Team, you have Red, Blue, and Gray Teams. Chief is not the last Spartan, he was just the only one who was at Reach day of its invasion by the covenant, who escaped, along with Linda's Body, which he put into the Cryo Tube next to him on the Autumn. When playing Co-Op this explains the second person also being a Spartan, because Linda wasn't actually dead, but near death, and her viatiles improved while she was in the cryotube(?). Also it is protocol that all CryoTubes be jettisoned into space when being attacked.

They found the Halo ring, on accident, because of the Cole Protocol, which is states, that when being attacked by Covenent and must flee, you go to a random generated point in space, through slipspace and wipe all information with the coordinates to Earth, so if the Covenent do kill everyone, they still can't find Earth. Cole Protocol also states that all AI must be destroyed, but Keyes disobeys that and puts Cortana in Chief's head.

I'm getting tired of typing, so I may explain the events after the first Halo later, good day.

Halo is a very confusing game, which most people don't realize it though, cause they just play the game for the massive run and gun.

There was once a saying that Master Chief was going to be the Mario for adults. And a great help in that is the way his franchise (not him, but still) can succeed in more than one franchise (Mario is good in 5, but who's counting?).

Another perception by non-360 fans is that Halo 3 is the only stellar game for the system. And I'm glad that Gears of War, COD4 and others are changing that perception. It's good that the franchise is idolised, but I think it makes it better for the console as a whole.

I loved the controls, no doubt RTS will be coming to consoles a lot more.

I don't know about having one on the Wii though, the buttons would be harder to pull off on that Wii-mote and nunchuck because you would need 1 and 2 which are hard to access quickly.
