The popular Halo series are created by the awesome Bungie, but Microsoft owns the rights to the Halo franchise. They are mainly FPS games for the Xbox consoles. The games are about the war between humans and aliens called the Covenants and the Flood. You mostly play as a Spartan. Spartans are super soldiers who uses special armors. Microsoft has created a special studio for creating future Halo games called 343 Industries.

Halo: Combat Evolved

The first Halo game ever created. It was released on November 15, 2001 for Microsofts' Xbox, and it was also released for PC and Mac two years later. This game has inspired many other developers to create FPS games for consoles. People used to say (and some still do) that FPS games were only good on computers with a mouse and keyboard, but Bungie showed us that they are great to play with a controller as well! This game still has the most loved campaign out of all the Halo games.

Halo 2

The second game was released on November 9, 2004, also for the Xbox. It was also released for PC (Windows Vista) on 2007. Bungie introduced us to the brilliant matchmaking in this game. Instead of servers, you get matched with other players and one of them is the host for the match. This system has it's flaws, like if the host lives far away from you, then the match can be laggy for you. I will never forget when I and three other Swedish friends met people from Japan. They got the host and we had no chance whatsoever. We were running into walls while the Japanese guys killed us easily, and on top of that, the game was to 100 kills! Not the usual 50. It was a real torture, heh. The most loved multiplayer map was the awesome Lockout!

Halo 3

The last Halo game with Master Chief as the main character. It was released on September 25, 2007 for the Xbox 360. This game has been on the top three most played games on Xbox Live since it's release (it will surely end though when Reach is released). This game introduces us to the absolutely awesome Forge and Theater! People can create their own custom maps, and watch played matches. Oh, Bungie, you spoil us ♥

Halo Wars

The first Halo game that's not created by Bungie, and it's also not an FPS! This is an RTS game created by the closed Ensemble Studios, released on February 26, 2009. RTS games are typical computer games, but this game was designed for being played on a console, and it works very well! I've never been a fan of RTS games, but I loved playing this game. The pre-rendered cinematics are gorgeous, I drooled when watching the Spartans in action! (XD)

Halo 3: ODST

This game was first planned to only be downloadable via Xbox Live, but it turned out bigger than Bungie expected, so it went into a full game instead. It was released on September 22, 2009. This game takes place during the events between Halo 2 and Halo 3, and you follow a small group of ODST soldiers. You play as a guy who is called the "Rookie". This game also introduces us to the funny multiplayer mode Firefight!

Halo: Reach

This game takes place before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. It was released on September 14, 2010. You follow the Spartan group Noble Team as they try to protect the planet Reach from the Covenats. Bungie has added Armor abilities in this game, such as Sprint, Armor Lock, Jet Pack, Evade, Active Camouflage, Hologram and Drop Shield.

What is a fanlisting?

An explanation by The Fanlistings Network:
"A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as, a movie, actor, singer, video game etc (in this case the Halo series), that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name, e-mail and country."
