The saddest thing in Halo

Real Quick: I've been playing Halo since 2001, and naturally as a child, I just thought of it as a pretty game with shooting. That was my mindset at age 11. As I matured however, I payed more attention to the story-line and became hooked with the Halo Universe. Thanks to the release of Halo CE Anniversary, we have had the honor of the terminals explaining more into detail about Halo. Now one terminal that really got to me was number 9; Death of Keyes. Saddest Halo Moment: The terminal for Halo CEA, The Death of Keyes, was one that really dug into me. As I look at other people who scoff at the people like me for actually feeling bad for a video game character's death, you have to wonder how cold-hearted you have to be in general not to care even a bit. In the terminal, we know that Cpt. Jacob Keyes was infected by the flood and was being tormented by it. Having his memories stripped from him, having the pain of becoming more like a flood creature, and potentially losing the whereabouts of Earth to the flood. I thought to myself, had that had been me, I would have compromised everything, been too weak. The fact that Jacob Keyes was determined, in spite of being tormented and killed slowly, to keep the flood far away from the human race is awe inspiring, and I wish Bungie would have done more with Keyes in a game. Discuss. Would you agree or do you have a different opinion, and if so what and why? [Edited on 10.25.2012 4:44 PM PDT]
