What Halo moments made you feel sad?
OP Orion Crux 9
This is why I want the content of the games to represent the books more. The Halo universe has some very dark and cruel content, except the games. If the games represented some of the book's level of violence and cruelty they would all be M / 18 +Happy Place8166 wrote:There's one moment in particular that has always really messed me up. And credit to John Shirley and his book "Broken Circle" for really pulling me into this scene:The above is a quote from Halopedia regarding the scene I'm referring to. At some point during this scene, a Sangheili is being essentially flattened like a tube of tooth paste while his son screams in agony for him. It's an incredibly emotional and gruesome scene and I honestly felt sick reading it (mind you, my job has me seeing some pretty messed up stuff on a weekly basis). Nothing has ever come close to the visceral reaction I received from reading this part of "Broken Circle".Quote:Exquisite Devotion brings Zo to a weapons-testing facility, where he has gathered several Sangheili High Councilors in the Gravitational Refinement chamber. He informs Zo that Torg and his Councilors have been executed on the ring for opposing the replacement of the Honor Guard, and he questions Zo's allegiance with these Sangheili and believes him to be a traitor to the Covenant. He also believes that Zo knows the whereabouts of the Arbiter, and to force Zo to confess, he tortures a Sangheili High Councilor by using localized gravitation to slowly crush his body. Though Zo insists he knows nothing of the Arbiter, Exquisite Devotion continues to torture the High Councilor, eventually crushing him to death.
Awakening the Nightmare also had a line referring to how horrific the Flood infection is. Pavium "kill them, they're no longer our brothers."Colt282 wrote:When Halo 5 released and was pretty bad.
But for real, any time a marine I'm with gets infected by the Flood. If you're well versed with the lore you're aware how horrific of a fate that is, so I'll do my absolute best to protect all allies from the flood. I kind of put a self challenge of saving every marine you can on Floodgate and it took me a while but I managed to do it.
I always felt like that ending was supposed to make us hopeful, we all know how badly planets get glassed, to see one terraformed was nice.arcanepunk wrote:damn, i never realized that date, hits even harder nowtheMINICHIEF wrote:Seeing Noble 6s helmet at the end of Reach and the date was 2589 which shows how long its been.
