The “Halo”?series has been synonymous with first-person shooters, intense multiplayer experiences, and the Xbox family of consoles for nearly two decades. The original was the defining launch title of Microsoft’s first gaming system, introducing a generation of fans to the story of Master Chief and the Covenant.
The series was developed and produced for its first decade by Bungie, past even the point where the developer opted to split from Microsoft, which had bought the studio shortly before the release of “Halo.” While Bungie would spend most of the 2010s working on “Destiny” and its sequel, the “Halo” franchise was taken over by 343 Industries, a Microsoft studio and named after a prominent AI character in the original series, 343 Guilty Spark, via Reddit.
Despite changing hands halfway through its run, the franchise’s quality has remained uniformly high, and nearly every major “Halo” game has delivered a satisfying experience for fans of the series and the genre. That said, they can’t all be the favorite, so SVG decided to ask over 500 “Halo” fans from across the United States which game they would get rid of from the franchise if they could. Nearly 25% of fans picked the same game to eliminate from the series altogether.
