Do the dumbasses making “Halo cutscene, but lore accurate” videos understand that what happens in the game cutscenes is the definitive “lore”? Like yes, the novels are more canonical than in Star Wars or something; as is actually pretty common for games, the tie-in fiction is roughly as canon as the “primary” canon itself—which for games is the actual video game story depicted in the game itself, and the “fluff” in actual tabletop game manuals. But whenever a work of tie-in fiction contradicts the game it’s based on, the game wins.
What kind of animals still roam earth? Or at least the city that we know of?? (Specifically birds and cats) theirs wolves so i think dogs would be their too, horses???!
Honestly, hard to tell. We’ve seen birds, cats, dogs, wolves. I know there’s mention of reptiles and some other animals in the lore as well. It’s a question tho whether a lot of these mentioned animals still exist or are just known about through records.
I would definitely say that a lot of the animals went extinct during the Collapse and in the post-Collapse world. Probably a lot of already endangered species, as well as species that require a lot of specific habitats and exceptionally large animals.
