No instruction manual in my Halo 4 video game?! Please I beg you Microsoft to allow customers to receive a printed copy of the manual for this game. Paying $60 for a video game is a rip off if its not included. As a video game collector, I feel that the games package, the included game, the manual, and other inserts all combine to create an exceptional work of art.
I will not be completely satisfied with Microsoft products until this is resolved!

Yea pretty much all new games have like 3 pages of a manual. I remember when they were a lot bigger, not to long ago really.

Why do you need a manual for the game? The controls are in the game itself... Only thing I can see a manual being used for is to figure out the controls... And for something like Halo 4, with a variety of control schemes.... A manual really isn't needed...

Sad how this is the world we live in, no instructions for games anymore. It ****** me off it's like giving the finger to customers who actually like reading a manual.

They were never really that useful anyway except for in strategy or rpg games. Everything is explained to you in-game anyway.

The need of manuals is long gone. Back in the day when games were limited in size, a manual was a great way to explain things such as the controls, story, etc but we don't really have those limitations now so what's the point of a manual if you essentially have a digital copy with your game? Sure it doesn't have pages that you can turn but everything you need to know is in the game itself.

And it's a waste of paper. Most people that get games these days wouldn't even open their manual if one came with their new game purchase.

Also, not having a manual does not make a game worth 'less' for a collector so I don't see why people are getting cranky over the lack of a manual. Just buy the books/comics if you want to read/look at something.

If you think somebody has posted something useful, show your appreciation and hit 'Like'

It's not that the manual is useful, it's the fact of a game having one that just makes it better.

Say, I open up an old video game. Inside, there's the game itself, an instruction manual, a quick-reference sheet, maybe even a little poster. It feels cool to have all that stuff there. When I open a game today, there's a disk in there, maybe a one/two sheet "instructions manual", and a waver with a code on it.

It just doesn't have the same feeling anymore...

343 explained why they did this on an update on Halo Waypoint i think
