DAE cringe when people say "I shouldn't have to read books to get the story,"?

The last Halo book I read was Ghosts of Onyx and Halo 4 didn't confuse me a single bit. Whatever questions I have, I know will be answered. That's the point of a damn story arc across 2 future games and who knows how many seasons of Spartan Ops.

I honestly cringe when people say those words simply because I know it's some adolescent random that one, shouldn't even own the game to play, and two, keep screaming for instant gratification and have zero patience. Game companies listen to these people sometimes and it's NEVER good.

Mostly just because all you need to know is in the terminals. I wish they were viewable from the game instead of Waypoint, though.

The books are actually quite good, too. More people should read 'em.

Hopefully Silentium fills the gap between those novels and Halo 4. It's said to contain Halo 4 spoilers, so it should explain a bit.

Xbox Kinect. Works better as a MoCap tool for amateur animators than it does as a gaming gimmick.

You shouldn't have to read a book to understand the story to a game. That is definitely true.

I have only read the first couple of books in the series and I'm with you on understanding the story in halo 4. It was horribly told but I understood it.

halo you can still get from just the game. gears however you need to read to books to find out half the characters and backstory. they never even tell you why the queen of the locusts looks human.
