Frankly? I'd love to have a TV show I could show to my non-gaming friends and family and say "This is Halo. This is what's kept me enraptured for the better part of two decades."

That's impossible.

Halo is Halo and it's what kept you engaged because it was a game. If you're trying to capture the exact feeling of the game by making eight one-hour cutscenes, then you've endeavored on a fool's task.

And I can't do it. This show isn't it.

NO game to TV / Film adaptation can. Even Sonic which in my opinion was great, was not like the game at all. And that's why it worked as a film.

This fact about game to movie adaptations is what I feel creators and fans need to understand. You can't say "make it feel like the game!" in a medium that removes 80% of the things that make up the game experience.
