Ok, so, I once was a big fan of the Halo series. I played everything except Reach and then left the country for a couple years. Now I'm back and just borrowed Halo 4 from a friend. I won't harp much on Bungie's storytelling here, and I really enjoyed Halo 4, I wish 343 had been involved earlier on with Halo. Anyway, that said, I am confused.
Wasn't the original twist to all this that we were Forerunners? (Humans). Isn't that why at Harvest the Covenant computer kept saying there were forerunner artifacts on the planet? Since when did all this 'galactic upkeep' come along? Since when did humans become so beasty they could beat the forerunners, be beaten back down by them, and then do it all again? I need some clarity here.
Can anyone help me?
