    didn't read the article(comment made from home page) but i'm assuming it's about that halo tv show. i see little reason to careabout it since you won't be able to interact with it, which is what makes games so fun, and it probably won't effect the games reputation since they're going the call of duty route and milking it

    "As a film director, Spielberg is one of the best" Ehhh... Not really. Certainly of of the most famous, but even though he has made some pretty memorable films. His Bad/good Movie ratio is skewed way more to the bad than to the good. Specially in the last 2 decades.

    Lincoln, Munich, Catch, Minority, the first 2/3 of A.I., Ryan, Shchindler and JP were all pretty great. 8 good-great versus a couple mediocre and some absolute shit.....I would argue that he has been above board in the quality of movies. Maybe people just remember the bad ones a little more than the good to great ones. He isn't in my top 20 directors but I think when he is passionate about something he creates quality work. That said, fuck him so hard for War of the Worlds. Say what you want about Crystal but at least it didn't have Dakota Fanning SCREAMING for 2 hours and a that fucking ungrateful emo teenage son trying to fight aliens because..........whatever.

    Sorry, but AI, not even taking two thirds of it, isn't a great movie at all, had some interesting ideas and a visual aesthetics, but a super wonky execution. Same thing with Minority Report, don't even know how you can defend that movie, the story is atrocious. Also, you need to get more acquainted with his old work, Close encounters of the third kind, Empire of the Sun and E.T. Are pretty good. Anyway, I take those, and I raise you Temple of Doom, Hook, JP: The Lost World, The Terminal, War of the worlds, The kingdom of the crystal skull, the new tin-tin movie. And that's just counting shit he's directed. If you count the shit he's produced, you can tremble in terror knowing he has produced the Bay's transformer movies. I never said he's a terrible director, I myself have just acknowledge he does good work, but to be called one of the best? nah.

    God damn that LMNO picture is creepy as fuck

    He did help with the Neverhood...

    The article is not correct, the first title that adapted a Steven Spielberg's movie was Raiders of the Lost Ark, which was also the first movie licensed video game, not E.T.

    Senior Spielbergo? He of such classics as High Incident, Terra Nova, On The Lot and United States of Tara?? Even when he is attached to something GOOD it usually gets cancelled pretty early (Amazing Stories).

    Halo is either going to cost too much to be lucrative or be too cheap looking to be believable. Besides, is anyone REALLY that interested in this universe? Halo's story was always pretty awful when they were shoe-horning it into a videogame, now they expect to make a TV series out of it? Fingers crossed for Gravemind being voiced by John Dimaggio!

    I would be more interested in the Halo universe if it was easier to follow. I actually find the lore quite interesting, but I don't appreciate there being 10 novels and 50 comic books on the side that explain/expand the lore, and we are expected to know about it to understand the games (death stares at Halo 4).

    Yeah I'm with you on that, as someone who's played through all the Halo games multiple times even I had to pull up a wiki to decipher what the hell was going on when the Prometheans are humans stuff came up.
  • pl4y4h - June 9, 2013 3:58 p.m.

    I still can't get over the fact that he voiced Wakka. Never put 2 and 2 together on that one until last year.
  • Frieza - June 9, 2013 3:08 p.m.

    Terra Nova sucked ass lol Makes you wonder how he'll handle the Halo series. He's a much better film maker than a Tv show maker. (That sentence sounded choppy, but you get the point)
  • sandplasma - June 9, 2013 12:29 p.m.

    An old timer like Spielberg probably still tinks that video games are a fad and will not even play the game before working on the series. He will have other people play it and write him a script.
  • kadusel - June 9, 2013 1:12 p.m.

    I'm not sure if he had played Halo, but Steven Spielberg was known as quite an avid gamer , according to this book
