Sometimes I think that was a good thing... The weapons kept getting less and less imaginative.
If they did Marathon in 2011, after Halo, they would have done some dumb thing like:
The MA-75 shoots 5.56 rounds
The Pistol has no scope, just sights, and shoots boring 9mm ammo
The fusion pistol is a taser
the Shotgun is a semi-automatic 20 gauge.
the rocket launcher must be manually fed every shot, also, you will have to spend three levels before finding another rocket.
also, dual wielding has been removed due to lack of realism.
Thank god Marathon wasn't like that.
Also, the abundance clearly did not last, because as we learned in Durandal, they could not produce the weapons any longer and started creating lower powered weapons.
