What if Halo 5 starred a new protagonist?

Like they did a thing where they introduce a new Spartan, and Chief acts like a mentor character so we can see him from the perspective of another character.

What would you think?

I wouldn't really care. CE was the last good campaign in the series IMO.

I'm fairly certain that the biggest selling appeal of Halo 4 was "the return of the Chief."

Combine the lack of the Chief with the reputation 343 gained from 4's less than stellar gameplay, and I think the game will tank. Hard.

Perfection. Where everyone fails.
If you expect nothing you can be happy for everything.

Like anything, as long as it works and is good, it would be fine.

Halo 5 staring @msheridan1990.

Just think about it and let it sink in. It's a great idea.

Tbh I really loved your custom SPARTAN in Reach's Campaign.

Not to sound like I'm attacking your opinion, but how can you say that? I mean I thought both 2 and 3 had good campaign's. The gameplay was fun and the story was pretty good in both of them too.

Certainly added to the replay value, that's for sure. Can't tell you how many times I loaded up the intro just to see my shiny new helmet.

I really didn't mind the split protagonist perspective in Halo 2, it helped flesh out the story, and gave firm context as to why the Covenant was splintering. But a whole new guy? No, I don't think that'd work out oo well. Not with 343 wanting to give John more Characterization in 4. A new protag would kinda undo what 343 has done so far.

Finding it, though... that's not the hard part. It's letting go.
