I as well have been playing Halo day one. I'm very well informed about the comedic role grunts have played since the get go. That's not what I'm talking about at all. It seems you suffer from a bias so strong it impedes your baseline reading comprehension which causes you to project subconscious criticism to my words. That's ok.
I was merely describing a personal ie subjective experience regarding this partical aspect that seemed more or less played up for sake of injecting personality/light hearted humor which seemed forced given the baseline serious vibe the narrative heavy handedly hints at
It's my opinionan, that's all. No hidden agenda.
An observation made known on a sessage board
A subjective observation supposedly shared by others which make said opinion a shares reality.
It's quite amusing that you see my observation as an attack and a call for change; "the tide won't turn, "everyone" likes it so deal with it" when I'm again, merely stating my subjective opinion regarding my personal experience.
It's ok to have different ways of looking at the same thing and how it impacts the overall experience. But try to see different views without defaulting to a us vs them kneejerk psychological state.
I'm not trying to use a petty reason to discredit Halo Infinite. I think the game is great, one of the absolute best games of 2021, I had a great time with it, but I do think they went too far with the Grunts. That's all.
