Well, I was certain they will ride on Halo success with this, I didn't thought that they will do this as much as they did though. And I don't buy this "It's like an MMO, it will be better later" bs... good that I don't have a console so I didn't bought it.I was honestly kinda rooting for it, looking out to see how it turned out and hoping it would. Because I was a Bungie fan. I kinda knew it wouldn't turn out well because it seemed too ambitious. Turns out, it was true.
Probably from Halo. It's one of, if not the most successful gaming series out there.
