I'm all for narrative games, open-world games, RPG's, Stealth games, and a lot less Shooters...but this is way to bold of him to say:

"[T]he developer claimed the industry would die without innovation, further noting that while shooters will 'always be successful,' new ideas will benefit the business."

I don't agree. The video game industry won't necessarily die out because it has too many Shooters. With that said, there are plenty Shooters that suck complete ass; he kinda makes it seem like every Shooter is "too successful."

Also, he stats that, "sequels kill creativity." Again, I don't agree. There have been many sequels that are 150x better than their predecessors. Plus, sequels allow games to evolve.

This guy seems a little whack.

Maybe we could see some future books, or a live action film, but no more games after 6.
Ditto. Halo should have ended with 3. Halo Reach wasn't even necessary since we already had Nylund's book, "The Fall of Reach" and as much as I love the Campaign of Halo 4, it wasn't that needed. Woulda been more mysterious for Chief to be floating in space and then leave the game like that, right? Or as you said, continue the story through novels, or a film (which would be cool).


EDIT: Beyond: Two Souls looks mad good. PS3 exclusives kick Microsoft's exclusives ass.
