The feels! Ah, my feels! I loved how Halo 4 took a risk and really expanded on John's character. In the books, he's always had a little more personality; it's so wonderful to see them bring that out in a game. I can't wait to see how they continue his story. Wonderful job on this piece. He seems so ....exhausted. Lonely. Like he's been overwhelmed by the realization that there's nothing left in his life that's "his." He's empty. He just lost the most intimate connection in his life--the only thing he had that was personal; not just professional. And what's worse--he failed her. Just like a machine, he chose his duty over her. And she ran out of time. In the end, she saved him; and now, what does he have left? You captured such a great mood. Bravo!
The fact that he took the armor off at all is monumental, he really took what Cortana said to heart, about being a machine. People think that he's just armor and I think that he's always wished that too. John wants to be 'Master Chief', he wished that when he took off the suit there was nothing there. He probably didn't have to think about it too much until recently, now he has to question what he is. he's always been a machine. now he has to deal with the terrifying possibility that he's human. I'm such a nerd XD
i cant play the games lol i suck at them. but i do love the story and the imgination of it all. there are very few human moments in the games that he has but he does in the books and Halo 4 deffinatly gave him a more human side than in the previous games. because well if you think about it, he was trained since the age of 6, started fighting a war at 14, faoght in that war for 20+ years saw most of his brothers and sisters in arms die, and has never had someone other than the other SPARTAN-IIs, Halsey and Cortanna truely care about him. and loseing almost all 3 in a matter of years weieghs on a person no matter how battle hardened they are.
