Halo: Reach was recently released to numerous outstanding reviews. I picked it up myself and really enjoy the game so far, but it got me thinking: do we really need more Halo games? Even Bungie is getting out of the series, as the company announced Reach will be the last Bungie developed Halo game. Now, I understand that the franchise is a gigantic money maker for Microsoft, but one could assume that a company as big as Microsoft could think of another franchise replace Halo.
Another thing that got me thinking this way is how the latest games in the series seem a bit “lazy” when it comes to the multiplayer modes included. Halo 1 had some of the most fun maps most gamers had ever seen in multiplayer game, but over the years the maps have gotten worse and worse. To the point where most of the maps in the new game are just taken straight from the singleplayer campaign. This seems a bit confusing to me, as the multiplayer is the main draw to the franchise. To the point where some people never play the singleplayer campaign.
So, my question to you, my dearest of doves, is this: what do you think of the Halo franchise? Should it continue on or should Microsoft let it die an honorable death? Do you even care about the games? Why or why not? Tell me in the comments below!
