I'm talking about Halo in general, not just Halo 4. The only thing I have not liked is the "lol no john you are the chosen one" thing. It was a little forced and corny. Aside from that though I enjoy the Halo Story and it's lore. So I ask you honestly, if you don't like the story, why not?

Personal reasons? I agree there's nothing really objectionable about the story. Are people complaining about it?

well it kinda felt like they didn't explain anything, like you meet this guy and suddenly cortana starts calling him a didact for no discernible reason and his motives arent really explained etc, i love big deep scifi stories but you shouldn't have to read a book to understand the main villain of the game.

I thought it was kind of renown for having one of the strongest story for FPS'

A couple people might have some gripes, but overall.

No i mean i've read all the backstory and its really good but i feel it should have been in the game, even on the back of the box it says a new saga is starting.

Halo has one of the better overall stories when it comes to just straight up FPS.... But that isn't saying much. Still doesnt stop it from having a generic story with generic characters.

Actually, lonewolf, it does. If you read the terminals and whatnot, Halo has a very deep story.
