Well, To Be Fair... (Gaming)

I suppose. 343i has only put out one more game than Bungie. Two, I guess, depending on the weight you give MCC.

I guess my real thoughts are:

I think we’d be having this exact same discussion if Bungie had kept making Halo. There’s only so much you can do in a franchise over this long. Every design decision is going to piss off a subset of people. It was already happening with every Bungie Halo, it would have kept happening if they kept making those games. They either let the series stagnate or they try and mix it up—either direction pisses off large parts of the audience. 343i’s biggest problem is that they started without having fifteen years of goodwill behind them.

Obviously I can’t prove it, but I’d be willing to be that those exact same games releases under the Bungie name instead of 343 would have been better received.
