Watching someone who isn't too familiar with video games try their hand at Halo 4 can be pretty hilarious. But when it's Conan O'Brien testing out 343's first entry in the series, it's that much funnier. Even if he does roll his eyes a little too much at the storyline.
I mean, I get it. The story's depth might seem a little excessive and unnecessary to an outsider who thinks video games are made for mindless fun. But every year video games get a little better at telling stories. And that's definitely something we shouldn't roll our eyes at, it's something we should be proud of.
In between my laughs, I was a little sad that the audience was chuckling over even just the description of the storyline. It highlights how indifferent the majority of people are to games, and that they don't take the medium seriously enough to even give it a chance. Sigh. One day, guys. One day.
