    Never really realized how much i used to play Halo 3 back when i still owned a 360. I can still hear 343 Guilty Spark's voice when he tries to stop the destruction of the halo. "You are forerunner, but this ring, is MINE!"

    I’ll never understand just one thing, at no point did the humans ever mention to the forerunners that there’s a parasite that devours entire worlds within days and has a collective consciousness of everyone they’ve infected and their aggression was only because of their attempts to halt the flood? It just seems like such an easy thing to explain, just shoot a message over Facebook or twitter saying that a space Fairing zombie super collective is trying to consume the galaxy and so far doing a good job of it

    After watching, I realized how much lore I missed during my childhood despite sinking hundreds of hours into every halo besides CE. The only thing I knew was Master Chief and the Arbiter were badass, grunts sounded funny, and that Halo 2 is the best Halo. Had no idea how in-depth the lore is in the games alone! Maybe it was because I was 9 in 2007 but still had fun shooting aliens lol Too bad the Halo games we know and love are done being made, hopefully Infinite isn't a steaming pile of shit

    _"343 are listening to the fans"_ That remains to be seen. Halo 4 was disappointing, but Halo 5 was flat out awful. It won't matter how much Infinite looks and sounds like the old games if the same people are still in charge. Joseph Staten is back, but I still don't trust 343.

    Halo 1-3: Prime Era (Humans vs Covenant and Flood) Halo 4-Infinite: New Era (Humans and Sangheli vs Forerunners, Rogue AI, and remnant Forerunner tech. We still have yet to see if Halo Infinite is a continuation of halo 5, and it could be the definitive end to the New Era.)

    Wow The Grave Mind is my Favorite Character hes like a Parasitc Darth Sidious in some kind of way. I would love a dark gruesome game where youre the flood tearing civilization limb from limb and find out more lore about the Flood. Other Side note what Dr. Halsey did was fucked up but thanks to the Spartans including of course the Chief the Universe was saved! Youre talking Trillions of lives and thats including children! So they could of left her alone for that one. Desperate times calls for desperate Measures. Those Rings can do about the same damage as the Infinity Gauntlet from the Marvel Universe. Or Maybe the Punches that Goku and Lord Beerus threw at each other out in space! Which are 5 times maybe 10 times more POWERFUL!

    Chronological order of the games: Halo Wars 1, Halo Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3: ODST (set during Halo 2's back half), Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 5, Halo Wars 2, Halo Infinite (not yet released). Halo Wars 1 is set in the beginning years of the war against the Covenant while everything from Halo Reach through Halo 3 takes place over the span of just a few short months, and then Halos 4, 5, and Wars 2 a few years later.
