    Hi, Cozma!

    I used to love the Halo series. My favorite game is the first one, no FPS has beaten the experience I had when playing Halo the first time as a kid. Perhaps it's just the nostalgia. I also had a really good time with Halo 2. 3 was good, got the Legendary Edition for my 14th birthday. Now that I remember, I also got the Limited Edition of Halo 2 for my 11th birthday. I was a huge fan back in my teens. Always wanted to play Reach but never got the chance, it looked awesome, better than 3 maybe. Sadly, I turned my back on the Halo series since Bungie jumped ship and never looked back. I played Halo 4 a couple of hours and I got bored pretty quickly. I wasn't even interested anymore when I knew about Halo 5.

    What's your opinion on 4 and 5?

    P.s. regarding Bungie: Destiny was a HUGE disappoint for me!

    I really enjoyed halo 4, is a good story, but is a bit sad, the only thing I hate are the watchers
    I also enjoyed halo 5, I played my first halo (halo combat evolved) when I was a child, (8 years old) and I realized that halo would have been my favourite game, halo also made me enjoy more the science and specially the physics

    I loved Halo CE, it's still one of my favorite games to play. I have both my original disc and the anniversary disc with the updated graphics, I switch back and forth, but there is something I like about the surreal atmosphere of the original game. I think it has some of the best game play, it alternates between fairly easy and insanely hard. It still usually takes me four or five tries to successfully board the Truth and Reconciliation in Legendary mode.

    Ah man Halo:CE was such a big part of my teenage years. Me and my friends used to lug Xboxes, TVs and bags of cables to each others house every other weekend it seemed. For all that the first one probably isn't my favourite because going back is difficult. The mechanics, movement and visuals are just so basic compared to later titles. Reach is my favourite, it had a really solid set of mechanics (the armour powers, health/shield system etc) and a good story.

    I've got 4 and 5 and whilst 4 was OK 5 was...disappointing. I realise that they are meant to be going in a new direction because this is the second halo trilogy and the story is kind of interesting but it's not gripping me for some reason. 5 I was really put off by (other than the multiplayer which is great) because the marketing made the game look like it was going to be an awesome spartan on spartan thriller and it turned out to be nothing like that. It's basically just master chief chasing cortana, Locke chasing master chief and no one really achieves anything other than being conveniently placed to witness key plot events.

    You're talking about the second time Chief visits the Truth, right? When it's infested with the Flood. It was a really nasty level. Ah, I remember when the s**t hits the fan in the sixth mission, 343 Guilty Spark, IIRC. It's pretty much Master Chief vs. the Flood afterwards. Nasty creatures, they used to scare the hell out of me.

    No, I find that pretty easy, I'm referring to the first time through, the time where as soon as you're on board you'r assaulted by several waves of Covanent and cloaked elites.

    My favourite level of Halo CE is two betrayals, there is everything, covenants, sentinels, floods, banshees, snow, it has a wonderful atmosphere, the map is amazing

    Mine is The Silent Cartographer. Beach invasion? Sold! Assault on the Control Room/Two Betrayals are my first runners up.

    One of my favorite things to do in Two Betrayals is to take the Banshee up to the bridge and push myself through the locked door. The entire level from AotCR is back there, really weirdly lit and no enemies.

    despite its age my favoured halo is without doubt halo 1 combat evolved.
