Halo changed the way people played only in the fact that it moved them from a KB and mouse to a gamepad. Some people just are not PC gamers, and that’s fine. That doesn’t make a gamepad “better”. Pit a gamepad against a gamer using a KB + mouse and see who comes out on top.

When Bungie, was revered. He did come a long way from a respected programming wiz kid to one of the biggest industry douches. This last statement of his is actually pretty mild compared to many other things he said in the recent past.

What I find even more amusing than the keyboard nonsense on that statement, is the fact he actually believes that Halo changed the way people play FPS games and that it introduced never-seen-before ideas into the genre, like recharging health or automatic saves. Thankfully the computer gaming market may be dumb in many ways, but has an encyclopedic memory. And he was immediately contradicted.

“We did a bunch of ambitious things on Halo deliberately to reach out to people. We limited players to two weapons, we gave them recharging health, we automatically saved and restored the game – almost heretical things to first-person shooters at the time. We made the game run without a mouse and keyboard. And now nobody plays shooters the way they used to play them before Halo ’cause nobody wants to.”

Gamepads are wicked for platformers and racing games, but total crap for FPS games.
