Does 343 need better writers?

They definitely need a new writer for Halo 6, Halo 5 story was pretty bad imo. I hope they pick somebody good who can meet fan expectations in the ways that matter, while also creating something original and surprising. If Reed stays, honestly my hype for Halo 6 is likely to be pretty low, because he didn't deliver on my expectations at all in Halo 5

4 was awesome. I enjoyed 5 to. But they wrote it so people who don't really know the lore might be confused. They just needed to explain a few things people who don't know the lore might need to know. Like why Halsey had lost an arm.


Yes, very much so. Halo 5 campaign was plain disappointing from story standpoint. Also one shouldn't have to read some other cannon books to understand what is even going on.

I wasn't confused at all. It followed the lore exactly.

I agree. Also you had to watch the TV stuff to. But I loved the story in itself.



343 needs the original Halo 1 Bungie team to take their place... with Marty doing the music. Then, and only then, will Halo be Halo again.

Im not saying it did not folow the lore accurately but they communicated it mostly in poorly ways in short they needed to give these charachters more time,more time for them to exist and take it all in.

Most of gaming needs better writers. Most of the games you think have good writing need better writers.

Your posts need better writters...

 

Just kidding. =P

No. Halo 5s game play was the best in the series. Its multiplayer is the best in the series. The story is very good. ironically in 4 343 told their story better than bungie, but in 5 they could have told it a bit better. But overall Halo 5 is the best halo yet. You feel like a Spartan finally.
