The way 343 come across in interviews etc screams 'casual gamer'. I don't know about you guys but I think this game would have been alot different if 343 were able to play thier game at a somewhat competitive level. Its kind of annoying in my opinion because of the fact that the flaws in this game are so glaring to those that have played Halo games competitivly.
Bungie was awful at the game and didn't know what the hell they were doing.
Hence the downward spiral since H2 (and really H1), and what culminated into the piece of s*** known as Reach.
343 isn't that much better, though. With the MLG monkey off of their backs they won't be obligated to improve the game anymore, so they game will most likely become either CoD 2.0 and/or just die off completely.
It's quite sad.
