|Halo 4 Forge Parody ViDoc|
|Posted By: pete_the_duck||Date: 1/13/13 11:31 a.m.|
This is, no doubt, going to end up on Wu's desk and probably on the front page, so I wanted to post it here myself so I could ..perhaps provide a relevant perspective to the piece.
I consider this some Forgers expressing their frustration at Halo 4's Forge through a parody ViDoc. And, as such, I found it amusing and think anyone that has similarly been frustrated at Forge will probably enjoy watching it and might even laugh a few times. I did.
I do not consider it, in any way, a thorough or even accurate accessment of Forge. They tend to focus on the Forge maps and game types, which are items that can (and traditionally, have) been added post-launch. And so, I do not consider those relevant to an accessment of Forge itself as a tool.
While the many improvements made to Forge itself are either not mentioned, mentioned only once, misrepresented, or are presented with an exaggerated, infomercial-like degree of difficultly that I found amusing. Those improvements include:
There are also some statements that are outright false, but I attribute that to the structure of the video--it is a parody, and seems to resort to simply providing a direct antithesis to statements in the original ViDoc.
So, enjoy it, but don't get caught up in it. They clearly put a lot of work into the presentation, and that is going to get the video a lot of views. As for the intended purpose of the video, if they legitimately want 343 Industries to adjust Forge, I don't think their presentation is as effective as a more traditional evaluation and bulleted list would be.
