I think these lyrics pretty much sum up how I feel right now for Jeff and Anna.

"We would do anything to bring him back to you.

We would do anything to end what you're going through.

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.

I would climb my way to heaven, and bring him home again.

I would do anything to bring him back to you.

Because if you got him back, I would get back the friend that I once knew."

Jeff created the site. Jeff, will continue it. In his honor.

The campaign broke my heart too, but in a good way.

Fez is probably my most listened to soundtrack, it pairs so well with the game.

But I have to give it to Neil Davidge here, when I first heard he was taking the reigns for Halo 4 I was stoked and he delivered. When "Arrival" is playing during the final mission, just complete amazement.

Keep playing Halo 4, probably get through ACIII after my roommate is done with it.

That's alotta Halo. Did you burn yourself out on the franchise before reaching 4?

No I didn't burn out on them. I have played through them enough to know the shortcuts if i feel like just running through a mission I can. It was fun to sort of relive some of those games before I got to see the next iteration in the franchise. Online co-op also helped mix it up by playing with some of my friends on XBL.

I did the same thing before Halo 4, exactly the same thing, down to stopping in Halo 2 when Master Chief leaves Earth - playing through ODST - and then returning to 2.

Did we just become best friends?

So in the two weeks prior to Halo 4's release I played all the Halo campaigns on Legendary. I mean all of them, in Canonical Order because I'm a stupid fan boy.

  • Halo Wars
  • Reach
  • Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary (I substituted this one for the Original)
  • Halo 2 ( Until about mid way)
  • Halo 3: ODST (After finishing this I switched back to H2)
  • Halo 3

Upon finishing H3 on the Monday prior to Halo 4's release I was pretty happy to have gone back to the campaigns, and while there were frustrating moments in each the overall experience was satisfying. The games definitely have different feels for each of them.

Now that Halo 4 has been out for a little less than a month I feel confident saying that the campaign in H4 is by far the most emotional of all the other Halos. This isn't suppose to take away from the others, but at the end of Halo 4 I actually felt connected to Master Chief as a character. Contrast that to the feelings of, "Oh Shit! Master Chief is a crazy badass, I can't believe he made it out of this one" that I felt in the others. Still not sure where it ranks with the other campaigns but I don't necessarily feel the need to do a ranking.

Has anyone else done something similar for other franchises? This past summer I played through all the Mass Effect games, but that was mainly because I hadn't touched one prior. I mean specifically replayed the previous game in anticipation of the new release?

@Zetetic_Elench: If privilege continues to lead to this ineffective dialogue where many people tune out and post comments like those featured in Patrick's article maybe it is better to explain the situation with new terminology.

Exactly, but I feel like some people would rather not hear our opinions in this discussion. Namely, the people throwing around the term privileged like it's a de facto thing.

I almost feel like exemption would be a more appropriate term than privilege, since it's more about the lack of a bad thing being done to you than it is an extra good thing happening.

That would probably be a better route to take, I agree.

Or rather, it would make more sense, not necessarily be better.

I agree I would refer you to this article on Kotaku talking about a similar subject, where they use "Difficulty Setting" instead of privilege. http://kotaku.com/5910857/straight-white-male-the-lowest-difficulty-setting-there-is
