Is Marty… okay? (Destiny)

I very much get the impression that in the Bungie days, Marty was a force to be reckoned with. Now, his game studio is following up a lackluster release with a highly controversial resurrection of a game that’s being called on from many to be canceled again. His Halo theme is making a comeback without him (in fairness, he seemed to champion the forfeit of Halo to Microsoft and didn’t feel like “helping them” succeed). Bungie is, for the first time in… ever(?) operating with strong leadership and a clear roadmap.

In the past, he could make a fuss and get his way. He can’t do that anymore. The times have changed, but he seems to be having trouble moving on. I can relate, but at a certain point you have to accept *some* responsibility for these kinds of outcomes.

Mad respect for the work he’s done in shaping Halo. Picking “don’t you know who I am” fights in the community, vaguely sending a hate mob to Parsons, and undermining virtually everyone who doesn’t see things his way, I can’t stand behind. Hope he finds some peace, and I also hope

Also sorry to be the guy that disappears for ten years and then reappears when the proverbial p o o p hits the fan.
