I do not want to stop asking. I do not ask to stop wanting.
-Respect and evolution of Halo's thematic principles
-Subtle evolutions of Chief's character (especially through his dialogue in the last scene as he tries approaching the conflict at hand normally at first, and then realizes that he has truly lost this time)
-"AI is more human than the humans"
-"Broken character becomes human trying to save the human character from becoming broken"
-several metaphors and allegories (ex. how Chief's body armor, for the first time, is taken off at the end of the game- symbolizing how the level headed, always calm, damn near stubborn Chief has become human)
-Perfect "Hero's Journey"- Chief's machine like, faceless hero character turns human, meaning he now has to become both a human and a hero.
- Halo's Military Sci Fi theme- WWII Symbolism- How nationalist leader treats minions like Machines and loses despite efficiency of machines- Didact turning Prometheans into machines as soldiers and Chief still wins
- Organic Life always overcoming
- Freudian relationship of Chief and Cortana (Outside Chief being id- acting impulsively, physically, Cortana being ego- Cortana acting thoughtfully, Chief's human side being superego- now that Cortana's lost, what will happen to Chief's character?)
Goddamn it. I really have to type up my analysis on the story soon. I've got a hell of a lot more points to make.
Thoughts? This is just a skeleton of some of the main points I'll be making in my analysis.
