Not at all. I'm just saying that it should've gone in the opposite direction of a T rating, and grew up with the fans instead of being baby-proofed for the new kids.
Lol, by that logic Bungie was doing it wrong too... Halo EU has always been darker than the games. Always. Not a new thing. Also does that mean Star Wars should be rated R? It has some pretty intense EU moments too lol.
Lame by today's standards maybe. Doom and Wolfenstien could/should be T with that logic. Also disregarded the fact that the Halo EU is for the most part much more mature than the direction 5 is going. Watch Headhunters. This is the direction Halo should go.
uh huh.... When its not in anniversary mode it looks really cheesy. To me, and to many others, Halo was never a true M game to begin with. It has very little blood past Halo CE (which again was really cheesy and neon), barely any swearing (there is 1 time in all of halo media the f-bomb is dropped, and that is in a story in halo evolutions), and hardly anything graphic besides flood (which are the least graphic zombies I've ever seen in a video game) and the flood didn't even appear in ODST, 4, or Reach. So being rated M for Halo means nothing. Nothing except the blood has changed, and that is miniscule cuz there was hardly any blood since Halo 2.
This one. The -Yoink- have you been playing?
Darker, and above all Mature again. Just recently went back and beat H5 and the tone felt so wrong. More like Disney bought Halo and nerfed it so parents would take their 10 year olds to see it :/Im not sure what Halo games you played, but it is questionable why it was ever rated M to begin with....
Besides that, and the flood being fairly graphic, there's all the books/comics/and specials that are all much more extreme than 5. I see no reason it shouldn't stay M at its core.
Halo has always had adult fans, just like sw and lotr. Why would they make it more adult and alienate a large portion of their fanbase, just to please a vocal few? They haven't had to adultify it to get older fans up to now,and they've been able to get young fans since the beginning. Why would they risk alienating possible young fans (or their parents), or adult fans who don't care for that stuff anyway?
Blood, gore, profanity, and sex add nothing to the story/gameplay, and for me they detract. And that is the case for many people. Why do you think R rated movies are usually not extremely successful? That title always goes to pg13.
