doomguy is much cooler than masterchief
doomguy stops a demon invasion brough on by a capitalists greed. masterchief fights in an alien war without question, probably for space oil or something
i know nothing about halo or mastercheif btw, all i know is his cause is impure
@NuclearTess its actually a holy war
@SuperGideon thats worse isnt it??
@NuclearTess oh yea
Doom guy: Fighting literally Hell but not for any religious reason.
Master Cheif: These kooky aliens united in harmony have a religion i need to kill them
@SuperGideon yeah! fuck masterchief lol
halo lore, genocide
@NuclearTess @SuperGideon the holy war problem is the other way around. it started because the Covenant found humanity and decided immediately that they were "desecrating" the relics of the Forerunner because of a mistranslation, and then embarked on a genocidal war to destroy all of humanity. it was further fueled by the desire to keep their religion alive and refusal to admit fault when they discovered the mistranslation.
humanity is fighting a war of survival, the Covenant was fighting a holy war of extermination.
that being said Halo lore is pretty deep and fucked up, y'all, i could talk about it for days and still have trouble pointing out the "good guys" because pretty much all the factions did fucked up stuff at one point or another, but there's definitely bad guys and they are the Covenant.
if i had to pick a "good guy" faction, though, it'd be the Swords of Sanghelios
Actually, Master Chief and the Spartan program wasn't started to fight in the alien war.
It was originally an effort to suppress rebellion against the UNSC. Master Chief fights for the government that kinapped and brainwashed him into being a child soldier.
Realistically the Spartans should defect to the covenant out of pure spite. They have more in common with elites than they do humans anyway.
@Chickiepup somebody write this game
I wanna say it's in one of the books. I know a lot of the Spartan IIs end up subverting the UNSC.
Those sad kids just wanna be free.
@NuclearTess they both wear green & gun theyre the same person
@julia you make a good point. both are videogame man and shoot guys
