Halo 4's story was pretty good (Despite needing to brush up on the Lore to understand all of it) so this ain't that bad of a move to me.

Can't be any worse than how ME 3 turned out

Edit: quite a few people are saying that Halo had a hard plot to follow or that it had almost no story...What? Since the first game it's been just as focused on the story as the gameplay, do people just not pay attention/give a shit or do they just echo the "HEY LOOK IT'S JOHN HALO" jokes on stream?

I liked most of the Halo 4 story. The whole chosen one nonsense is overdone, but The Chief and Cortana was more than enough to keep me interested. I actually felt bad for him at the end.

I eagerly finished Halo, and I couldn't get through ME even though I played the shit out of the first two.

Guess that writer got tired of his perfectly good story and backstory being shunted off into terminals and meaningless dialog involving semi-cryptic religious references.

While I hated Halo's ability to tell a story, I actually like its actual story. But it was absolutely abysmal how they went out of their way to hide that story. While we get it that it's about the gameplay, you're a billion dollar studio, you can easily afford to explore.

Terminals, out of game websites, etc, etc. Pure stupidity.

people really chomping on them sweet lemons, fighting back the tears to get a smile on their face. ME4, you get to casually recruit your ragtag team of operatives in order to stop some kinda rogue AI while boring lore is implied left and right. Next up, we here you loved the first person mode in GTA5...
