I’ve come to appreciate the genius that is 343 (and you should too). After playing other “blockbuster” games like The Division, Call of Duty and Destiny–the absolute brilliance of what 343 has done with Halo is much more apparent.
Let me explain…
I was browsing Reddit today and saw a post that highlighted every free piece of DLC 343 has given us. The list was massive and totally unexpected. My curiosity got the best of me, so I did some research on what other “big” developers have done for their player base. Bungie, Massive and Tryeyarch don’t even come close! Bungie has locked out players that haven’t paid for DLC, Massive has a game absolutely ridden with bugs and exploits and Treyarch nickels and dimes players until the cows come home. No thanks!
343 has not only made a game that is solid, relatively free of bugs and exploits (no other company comes close here), but they offer FREE content every single month… Yes, EVERY MONTH.
No other developer does this. Not one.
So, stop these trite “I hate 343 because I don’t like the weapon sounds” threads. Stop complaining about how region lock has “ruined the game”, or that BTB community maps suck. Get over yourself. Seriously.
Let’s start focusing on constructive feedback to make this game better (yes, 343 actually listens to the community–yes, they really do care). Let’s enjoy Halo for what it is: an amazing franchise that has been supported by one of the absolute best developers in the industry. Let’s just play some Halo and stop taking what we have for granted.
