Bungie Marathon Remake = no wei.
Posted By: RibFeastDate: 11/27/07 7:09 a.m.

I'm tired of hearing everyone saying they "heard" or "read" that Bungie is going to remake Marathon and that Master Chief is going to magically turn in to the protagonist in Marathon. Marathon is a game that Bungie made 16 years ago, probably the best game they've put out yet. To try and remake something that is nearly perfect would be a bastardization of everything Bungie is about. Tying Halos story into marathon would be a sonova bitch, and would alienate many old skoolers from Bungie for good. Selling out to Microsoft was bad enough, but remaking one of their classics is bad news. Bungie knows this. To remake it would be stupid. Knowing it's stupid is what makes Bungie the best video game company of ALL TIME. They create an incredible series, with a compelling story and a vivid cast of characters, who you grow to love, then they leave you with a teaser at the end of the series leaving the rest to your imagination (Master Chief drifting towards the planet with lights). Then the glory that is Bungie begins a new. Trust me when I say you don't WANT them to make another halo or tie it into Marathon, because the next addition to the host of great games this company has produced will be EVEN BETTER. Who knows what or when or why but I'm assured that there will NOT be a sequel to Halo, a tie in to Marathon, or anything otherwise. If they try to make another FPS it will be like Halo is to Marathon, not even close to connected in any way shape or form. Thank you for listening to my anger.
