I never thought I'd say it, but I'm actually looking forward to Halo 4. 343 seems to be doing more with the series than Bungie did with their past two or three entries; the Metroid Prime vibe and reinvention of the series' musical tone are really appealing to me. I'm enjoying those samples.
What made me interested in the game was the different approach to it. I was just viewing movie commercials and I came across the "Behind the Scenes" trailer for Halo 4. It definitely has something different going for it this time, and it definitely convinced someone like me, who isn't the biggest fan of Halo.
