Which Halo Difficulty is Canon?
Make Your Selection:
Hello Halo fans,
I've heard arguments for each Halo difficulty being canon, and I am curious to see what Halo fans on Waypoint think on this topic. I haven't watched the videos, but I hear that Generalkidd believes the official difficulty is Easy, and he presents a decent argument as to why. The Act Man says it is Legendary, and several Halo games say that Heroic "is the way Halo was meant to be played." However, I think it is Normal.
Why? Boot up The Master Chief Collection and go to the cross-game playlists, and you will see that "The Master Chief Saga" is set at the Normal difficulty. I cannot see how that can be interpreted in any way other than the Master Chief saga actually occurring on the Normal difficulty. To address the description for Heroic difficulty, I think that the description means that Heroic is the difficulty which best fits with the skill level of the majority of Halo players. In other words, this difficulty provides the most challenging and satisfying difficulty for most Halo players without the frustrations of the Legendary difficulty.
