Like the guy in the video said (don't know if it was you OP), 343 had a perfect blueprint on how to make a proper U.I., which makes these mistakes even worse. It really is as if 343 acts like the previous games don't exist or like there's some company policy don't to draw influence from the previous games.
Yeah agreed. They had a really good blueprint to follow and these concepts seems like they did http://pokit.org/get/img/a7c225eb9d0bd3d8795fcd52ffcc0f62.jpg
I have no idea why these didnt make it to the end product. Why did they step bck.
P.S - I didnt make the video, I just thought the video needed more attention since it only had a few views and thanks to reddit and this site, its getting more and more attention.
