Yeah this guy knows, Bungie was the shit, best game developer ever... then came Xbox and MS. Fucking destroyed them. Halo the original was a lot of fun. But compared the the Marathon universe, Halo fell short. Marathon games (while dated) where awesome and also very difficult.

However, Bungie's greatest accomplishment and game was the Myth: The Fallen Lords series. Best real time tactical war strategy game ever made. There even still is a private host server online that 30+ die hards still play on. The game is about 18 years old now, still got a few hanging onto it - which should say something. The physics engine used to create the Myth world is what was used to create the first Halo. At the time no developer had spent nearly as much money or time on a physics engine and a lot of the industry thought Bungie had lost their damn minds. The Myth series, being a game for highly intelligent people, didn't do all that great.

I assume that Bungie went with MS for the Halo release on xbox because they feared another masterful game becoming a "dud". As the Xbox's first and at the time only FPS, they were assured mass popular culture exposure, which in fact, is what happened.

Damn. The feels are intense on this. I remember when Halo 3 first came out and it was the biggest fucking deal. I can't believe it's been 10 years :/

Don't feel bad, they've probably just moved on to bigger and better things. Like PC gaming!

I thought everyone stopped after Halo 3.

Halo Reach was ok, it arguably had the best forge but little to no maps or game types. When it first came out I could look at any of the recent players from any of my games and if they were in Halo Reach and not playing multiplayer odds are they were in a full custom games lobby. The nail in the coffin was invulnerability and reticle bloom which totally destroyed the sandbox balance. If Halo 4 and 5 were absolute garbage then Halo Reach was the last real fart of Microsoft's cash cow.

Youre a faggot for liking halo to the point of writing halo on your dildo. @alopix
