Ranking the Mainline Halo Games

Halo has always been one of the biggest and probably Microsoft and Xbox's most iconic gaming series. 

Halo Infinite was supposed to be a launch title for the Xbox Series X|S but was delayed a year so the series could truly shine again upon release. 

Now, with the game out and people enjoying it and the franchise's 20th anniversary, it's time to rank the mainline Halo games released before Halo Infinite since people are playing and enjoying Master Chief's newest adventure. 

Halo 5: Guardians

Unfortunately, it is nearly universally considered a mixed bag of a game by fans. The feel and combat of the game still feel great, and multiplayer is a lot of fun with the new abilities introduced. 

Halo 4

The story itself is powerful regarding the relationship between Chief and Cortana but falters when it comes to the antagonists. The main antagonist and the new Promethean enemies don't feel developed enough compared to The Covenant in the original trilogy. 

Halo 3: ODST

With a great, eerie atmosphere, the game feels different from the rest of the entries in the series, and it gives off some noir detective vibes at times as you explore.
