Infinite *is* good. (Gaming)

And this is coming from someone who's never touched the campaign. Yes, I hate the live-game approach to business. Yes, I am still confounded by their armor unlock/progression scheme. It's by no means a perfect game, there are warts to acknowledge and personal nitpicks I have, but Infinite is not bad.

And for the sake of argument; let's all agree there has been paltry fare in the way of any worthy story beats since Bungie was in the seat. On that front I don't expect anything worthwhile moving forward. I couldn't hang with the TV series, I facepalmed hard at Mike-Colter-as-Locke; I just don't ever expect (or even hope) for the IP to right itself story-wise.

Halo is a different animal now than 20 years ago, surely. But all the bones (and the right hearts, this I believe firmly), are still there. I'm grateful 343 pulled it back from the mess I believe H5 was.
