Okay, let's break this down like Star Wars, You explained The beginning and ending of Episode 1, Episode 2, The Ending of 3, The Middle of 4, Episode 5, Half of 6, 3/4th of 7, Episode 8 and glossed over Episode 9, I know it's hard to explain the entire timeline, but you half to do it right

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!"

STOP USING “COMPLETE” and “SO FAR” in your titles. IT’S NOT COMPLETE if there’s still more to come.

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

Informative, Entertaining and very funny. "Wake him when the game received higher than 90 meta-score" -- And it did! 10/10

What I like about the halo lore is that it’s completely possible that we’re all living in it but we’re behind the actual games

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

I don’t get how or exactly who the gravemind is I thought on halo 2 the gravemind was in like a parallel universe like hell for instance.. because that’s where I thought Chief went after the covenant made him jump into the water on Halo 2? I thought they killed him??

_"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.)
