Will we finally get to see who's really behind the helmet in Halo 5? Is there a real character under there?
Thats a little harsh. You project yourself into Master chief. Nobody hates link because of his lack of character development
Link's character development happen within the context of most of his games. The actions of the players. With MC, as with most modern video game "heroes" its been through spoon-fed cutscenes.
Actually, MC and Link's characters are developed in the exact same way...
@mhunterjr "Actually, MC and Link's characters are developed in the exact same way..." I wouldn't say they're equal comparisons. Link not being the same person in every Zelda game allows the character to develop much more independently, on a per game basis.
Master Chief developed quite a lot in Halo 4, no?
Absolutely agree, 343 seems intent fleshing out Chief's character, compared to the faceless badass soldier of old.
lol yeh right MS will never Kill master cheif. Sony will never kill Kratos,Drake Kojima will never really kill Snake these Characters belong some to of the biggest IP's so why would publishers kill them. One thing i do agree with is that Master Chief could be such a better Character, but instead we we stuck majority of the times as a generic hero
I dont see Uncharted 4 ending any other way. Either Drake dies or someone really close to him (Elena or Sully). This is the second time they've said it was the last one, but this time I'm pretty sure they mean it. As for Master Chief, there was a lot of character development in Halo 4. After what happened to Cortana, you could "feel" the change in Master Chief. I suspect Master Chief is going to put himself into dangerous situations in Halo 5.
ifistbrowni yeh i agree MC evolved somewhat in halo 4, here is hoping that continues on a bigger level in halo 5 no way drake,sully or elena will die. I see a very happy ending coming to UC series. This way if UC4 does very well, sony can continue it under a different developer.(also i full expect UC4 to be the best selling UC game in the series, i wouldn't be surprised if UC4 sells 10 plus million. ND fanbase is just growing and growing) ND just don't like doing sad endings
"You project yourself into Master chief." No you don't. No one really does. Dude talks. He speaks for himself and there's no decision making on your part. He's a defined character, from his looks to his background story.
He talks very little in the games. He has a pretty fleshed out backstory for anyone that has the desire to look into it. Halo does a pretty good job of treading the line that allows them to satisfy the people interested in the lore, without pushing away the people that just want to shoot aliens and make things explode.
As much a Im aware, he is a mascot of xbox, so killing him would be as bad as returning to DRM policies...or not?
From what I an gather, that sounds like its on the cards for Halo 5. However, Master Chief was always supposed to be someone you plug yourself into. "You are Master Chief", as opposed to "you play as Master Chief."
Read the got damn books. Chief is a highly developed character and 343i is much more willing to go into the source material than Bungie ever was. Halo 4 had a great narrative.
MC developed plenty in Halo 4. That's what made it the best Halo sp game ever. YOU need to develop or...okay I'm getting emotional again.
Somebody is about to get Litt Up!
You do know there's more to Halo than the video games right? Not only I'd argue he's well developed in the games, but he's even MORE well developed in the comics. I hate when people bring this argument up because they clearly do not understand the lore or don't understand the true meaning of the character.
Yea his character is meant to be the way it is. They was he was trained and the shit he's been through has made him this way. Most spartans are generally quiet and direct because their emotions are subdued. If they force him to be too talkative or eccentric it would be against the halo canon. And if you look at halo 4 he did develop quite a bit, he's definitely going to be different in halo 5.
What we really should be asking ourselves is...how and when does master chief find time to take a dump? The poor guys gotta go sometime. With all that fighting where does he find the time to fire one out? This is a valid question that I would love to have answered. Is this in the lore? If not they need to address this issue. Has he been holding it in for a decade?
He goes in the suit. The suit automatically disposes if excrement.
From what I've heard he just does it in the suit and the suit disposes of it somehow. But that also begs the question does he actually take his helmet off and eat like normal ppl?
Halo games story is about whats happening in the universe not Master chief like Half Life is not about Gordon but about Black Mesa
Heroes never die!
Read the books. He is a very developed.
Spartans Never Die. They are just Missing In Action
Stupid article by a semi Halo fan.
I agree, but I dont care, long as they dont bring back that little shop of horrors plant. That was the dumbest thing introduced into the Halo story line.
They always did really well with the Halo franchise. Storytelling became much more of an issue when COD 4+ started taking off with it's cinematics. People clearly wanted to see more baked cinematics. Trying to tell the storyline as you go along goes a bit Pokemon/final fantasy... Like theres a guy stood there all-day waiting to pronounce the same standard comment for that particular part of the game. Dev's did obviously find better ways to do it with time... dead space for example... but that method resulted in linearity of gameplay direction. Arguably, love for cinematics tied with storytelling, can be another reason customers go mental for CGI trailers at gaming expo's.
