Eh. (Gaming)

The last few minutes pay tribute to the original games... but ignores the negative press THOSE got at (and before) launch.

For perspective, go back and read reviews at the time Empire Strikes Back had premiered. They were… not nearly as glowing as how we remember the film today.

But there was absolutely never anything remotely on the level of backlash that 343's games get. Not people denouncing the MS acquisition. Not Halo2sucks.com. Not people complaining about bullet spread. Not HRINC. Nothing.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that’s because when Halo 2 came out, there was no Twitter, no YouTube, No Reddit, and only a select few college kids could have Facebook.
