Opinion: Why The Forerunners are the Baddest Alien Race Ever Depicted on the 360

The Forerunners of Halo lore are among the most prolific and well conceived video game alien species of all time, even more so than the Reapers of Mass Effect fame. (Xbox 360)

hmm... ancient advanced but supposedly extinct race, where have i heard that before?

Halo Combat Evolved? Halo 2? Halo 3? Halo comics maybe? Lots of places where you could have heard that before. Take your pick.
By the way, MASSIVE MASS EFFECT 3 SPOILER ALERT!! Do not read the article if you have not finished ME3!!

they'll be pretty cool in Halo 4 (if we actually get to see one do something). but as of right now they're just figureheads, nothing real "bad" about that.

more like in almost every sci-fi and even many fantasy stories, "ancient advanced extinct civilizations" is one of THE most cliche plot point in fiction, i have to think hard to find franchise that doesn't have them.

I'm pretty excited the sort of Forerunner tech we'll be seeing in Halo 4. Of course, it will most likely be integrated with UNSC weaponry as they've had the chance to tinker around with forerunner tech for years now.

I totally agree. And based on the concept art I've seen, the forerunners will be badass

Ah yes the "Forerunners",the ancient advanced yet supposedly extinct race that built the Halo rings.We have dismissed that claim.

Didn't we find out in halo 3 (the terminals) that the forerunners were an old human civilization and that the sent a couple people to earth before shooting of the rings and killing all life in the universe. Earth was just outside the effected zone so they could repopulate and start over? So technically the forerunners are just humans.
