The forerunners build the halos to wipe everything out.
Thats fine.
But then they also build the shiled world(s?) and The Ark.
Each is visited by humans eventually, and what do we learn? I paraphrase:


So they build these things, left them apparently unused, and kill themselves anyways.
So I repeat, what's the point of even building them?

From what I remember, by the time they were ready to use them things were moving too quickly and they couldn't get there in time. Best laid plans . . .

Halopedia's down at the moment, so I don't have exact transcript of the last Terminal, but it says roughly that every sentient species has been indexed at the Ark, that it has been a worthwhile ad successful endeavor, etc.

perhaps they did. Perhaps they felt this was their fitting 'end', their atonement would be to fade away, and let a new galaxy populate in their wake. Most likely, they left the galaxy, and left their systems intact in order to repopulate the galaxy post-firing. Thus the theory that MC and Cortana are floating to a Forerunner civilization at the end. (oops. spoiler? meh. It's everywhere already)

I think the LP has something to do with Mendicant Bias. I was looking over the Terminals again (see it all at http://carnage.bungie.org/haloforum/hal ... ead=850197), and looking t what MB said on Legendary. I think he may guiding the MC somehow, leading him to the answer. Seriously, at least read the last couple paragraphs at the link bove.

I'd say its a general consensus that
is forerunner, and sine I see no evidence of a tractor beam or anything similar, I'm a bit lost on how MB is 'leading' us to the answers. Last time I checked, half a spaceship falling into a planet's gravity well wasn't indicitve of it being lead anywhere other than down. Still, if we do get to see what's down there, I'm sure it will be interesting.

And I was just hit by something, although I've yet to play Marathon, I noticed on their website on the plot explination that between the first and second games (I think) you're put in cryo status by an AI and wake up later when you land on the planet in the second game. (Again, I'm not sure if that's correct, please someone who's played Marathon correct me if I'm wrong)

While we know that bungie enjoys drawing paralells to its previous games, could they have gone that far as to redo that in Halo 3's end as well?
