I'm just a multiplayer guy; only finished 3 and reach for the multiplayer rewards, to be honest. The story and settings are great, but I feel like the only diverse missions require driving a new vehicle.
Most of the time, the only single player games I enjoy are RPGs or barrow RPG elements. I can totally see Halo being.a shooter rpg, from my knowledge of the game. However, not being very in tuned with the story, I couldnt really come up with ideas to make it different then any other game.
Born_Stellar has a Mass Effect you sir are correct at least when it comes to the first game, great story very dull game play, the second game was basically a Gears of War gameplay rip-off with very,very,very,very watered down rpg mechanics, and the third game well i have it and am very,very,very,very,very hesitant to play it cause i feel like bioware is going to screw me over
but basically i had the same thought as the TC until i realized that it just wouldn't work within the already established lore of the series, you could probably get a away with a halo rpg focused on an covenant elite as the main character, but you most certainly couldn't do a halo rpg focusing on the Master Chief or any SPARTAN for that matter as the main character, it would just feel stupid and cliche, which imo those are the 2 things that you should never feel when playing a halo game, so the though of a halo rpg on paper sounds and looks nice but in actual practice would probably be either a low point or spell the end of the franchise --- PLEDGED OF SHIELD AND SWORN TO WAR GT: joshua nash
derpyfoot posted... It's such a great hybrid genre. If it's just an FPS I won't even get it; I love the Halo series, but I've never beaten a single game because they're so boring. Picture it playing a little more like Mass Effect or Deus Ex. --- Obama (*) Biden 2012 Hope for America
There are already plenty of shooter/RPG hybrids to choose from (Mass Effect 1-3, Fallout 3/NV, Deus Ex, etc.). We don't need to turn Halo into one. --- Zombies are like sprinkles, they make everything sweeter!
Halo was going to be turned into an MMO at one point. I'm not saying it has a chance of becoming an RPG, but it does have enough (well, more then enough) in-universe information to be easily constructed into an RPG. You can easily transform the spartan system into an RPG character system. I don't understand why people would hate that idea. It also breathes new life into the series, much like what Halo Wars tried to do. I'm not a Halo story fan, but it seems logical; I heard the story-line is actually has a lot of depth, also.
