If you have contact with 343, or anyone who does please. Read this lol. These are my thoughts , that would make the game alot better in my opinion . To fullfill the true fantasy of being a super soldier. One thing that needs to be taken out of every halo. Is weapon recoil... Well not the recoil, but the Spartans reaction to recoil. I always wonder why there is weapon spread and crosshairs moving up. Lol.. I mean you play as a god damn Spartan ffs. Why can he not fire the gun without recoil affecting his aim? Makes no sense to me. The suit weighs about half a tonn on its own, I mean people can shoot guns in real life without suits and manage recoil. So why does the SMG start shooting up after about 3 seconds? Or the battle rifle in halo 5 bullet spread and recoil affecting aim,?? Or the saw ? Or the assault rifle have so much spread? Especially in halo reach with the weapon bloom? It always struck me as odd, even as a child I thought it was weird that you had to compensate for recoil, playing as a Super soldier .... Still love halo. But please somebody let them know to stop this nonsense with recoil, there are other things you can do for balancing in the games... Recoil is something you have in cod, it's what you'd expect playing as a normal human. But please make infinite great. Somebody agree with this??

And at 37.5 minutes we know precisely what happened with Activision--execs telling the creatives what has creative merit and what doesn't. If M$ did it even while still deferring to the creative vision of the people closest to the project, we know damned well Activision's oversight is what broke up the band and gutted Destiny of everything that game was supposed to be. It's not to say that the auteur Lucas's and Kojima's of the world don't need critical input (or a reality check), but imbalances in the relationships between the producers and the people actually creating the thing in either direction is how s*** goes south on a project. End rant. Excellent interview.

17:06-17:38 Marty isn't wrong, I have been seeing that pattern with Halo when 343i took over and in the Destiny series with Bungie. Admittedly, Bungie has gotten themselves f-ed over into a mess.

It has to be another reason for not inviting Marty to make Halo soundtracks for 343 Industries, it doesn't make any sense that they just ignore him, one of the reasons of the success of Halo is his very memorable soundtrack, just amazing. Also it's easy to see that Marty loves Halo, there's nothing better than a creator loving his creations.
