Thank you, Bungie

On the eve (well, almost) of the release of the first non-Bungie [i] Halo [/i] title, I was playing [i] Reach [/i], perhaps as a final salute to the compan- the truly awesome community that made a game series that has influenced my life in many, many ways. It's hard to describe how well done the work is - and I've played every single Bungie Halo, all the way from CE to Reach. Every game has amazing replay value, fantastic gameplay, ridiculous physics, cool weapons ... I could go on. It's hard to make games that have lasting value. Most games, you play them once or twice through, and then they go on the shelf to collect a fine layer of dust. I've spent over 400 hours on [i] Reach [/i] alone. Probably another 400 on H3 - and that's not counting the time I've spent offline with them, either. What I'm trying to say is thank you. Thank you so much, for being a fantastic creater, enabler (Forge anyone?), and constant source of inspiration. When someone asks me what I would want a company of mine to be like, it comes instantly: "Bungie." My meager collection of words doesn't really do justice to the gratitude that I'm feeling, but I hope you get the idea. Thanks, Bungie. See you starside. XKCD423 [Edited on 11.03.2012 7:26 PM PDT]

  • Well spoke. I've had a great time playing all the Halos, and wouldn't sell any of them off. I've been very interested in 343i's interpretation of Halo and I realized something while looking at the media. 343i doesn't seem to have the mysteriousness that Bungie is so good at creating. I feel like they tipped their hand in some of the trailers, though despite this I think Halo 4 will be well done. All the same I can't wait to get caught up in Bungie's next universe.

  • Yeah, the Halo trilogy and ODST were among the best games I've ever played and gave me countless gaming memories. I don't think I'll see them starside though, if Destiny is indeed an MMO. Not my thing at all.

  • I feel the same way. Bungie is an amazing company that simply needs a new title to get back on the main scene and blow Call of Duty out of the water finally. Hopefully, that will be Destiny. As for Bungie as a developer; how do I start? Bungie is one of the few developers that actually care about their fans and community. I love their idea that they just make Blam! they love and if other people like it then they make it better and with more cowbell! I have played Halo since the beginning. I have every other Halo (with the exception of Wars, and Halo 2 on PC) and I've loved every one of them, especially the Easter Eggs and Movie References. I think the one thing I really love most about Bungie is the fact that even though they have a ton of fans giving them their opinions, even if they're bad ones, Bungie manages to please us all.... Everynight ;) Bad joke aside, Bungie is basically my last hope for games. Almost my last hope for humanity. Lol. Help [i]Us[/i] Bungie, you're [i]Our[/i] only hope. Thanks again, Bungie. See you starside.

  • This is written very well. I'm the same really. I've spent countless hours on Reach myself, I enjoyed every hour. Thanks to Halo 3 and Reach they gave me a passion for game development, so, thanks to Bungie I wish to make games as a career. So I'll thank them too, I have multiple times already. But seeing that the next Halo installment comes out very soon. It seems appropriate. So, I wish Bungie a great future. And I thank them for their past endeavors. Which I have gladly joined in on. Thanks, Bungie. And thanks XKCD423. Happy hunting.
