Characters death should have had more emotion

I’m talking about the protagonists’ death such as Miranda’s, Johnson’s. They just die off, and you feel kinda sad, but not emotional.

compared to reach’s deaths halo 3 was tear jerking

Depends on how you personally felt about the character.

I actually started with Halo 3, (I just got an Xbox when Reach was starting to get old, Im so young!) So Johnson and Miranda’s death werent very emotional to me, but after playing Halo 1 and 2 their deaths had much more impact on me.
