Are you still playing any Halo games?

I feel like going back to play ODST, Reach, and Halo 3. Single player, not multiplayer. When's the last time you played a Halo game?

Nope. Finished Reach's campaign and that was it.

Nope... Combat Evolved was the only one I would even care to revisit. Yet not enough to actually revisit it.   :)

I go play Reach every once and a while. Last I played was a couple weeks back. I still thrash pretty hard at it. 
 
It's strange. After it came out, I played it religiously over a few beers and a bowl after a long day of school. Then summer came, and I started up the summer job. Instead of playing more, I somehow play less. Still, I can't deny how exquisite an experience the multiplayer suite is.

I play a little bit of Reach here and there, but not alot of it. Got too many other games I'd rather play.

Nope, I'll be buying Anniversary and Halo 4 when they come out though. I've been playing them for the past 10 years, and I honestly love their campaigns, but I was never that big into it's multi-player.

Yup, I still play Reach on and off, and I still have a lot of fun in the multiplayer.

This pretty much.

There is a good chance that when Halo 4 comes out, I'll probably replay all the main Halo games just too keep the story fresh in my head.

@TooWalrus: Yeah, exactly, that's kind of why I'm feeling the need to play some of the Halo games.

Last time I played was when I got a copy of Combat Evolved at a yard sale like 6 years ago.

If there's a break in recent games I'm playing on the 360 & between games from gamefly I will sometimes dive into playing a little of reach sp/mp though with almost all of the ranking stuff going to armor or voice boxes, I tend to only last a little while on the swat levels where it's just a bunch of people with basic guns & that's it.

I throw in reach from time to time.

Whenever I'm looking to play some multiplayer with friends, I always play Reach. It's a very fun game, and my favourite in the series (for gameplay).

Its been a while since I played Reach, but I'll definitely be playing the CE remake when it comes.

#16 Posted by Slaker117 (4836 posts) -

Took a break on Reach for a few months, but now I'm back to playing almost every day, even if it's just a few matches. Still having plenty of fun with it.

Oddly enough, those are the only three Halo games I've beaten. Controversy on 3, ignoring me on everything else.

I'm just playing through ODST right now actually. I love the music in that game so much that when I listen to it I feel like going back for a bit.

I haven't played a Halo game since my nephew loaned me Halo 2. I couldn't stand it by the way, just like the first.

@Brendan: I know, I understand. I understand so much that I'm listening to the soundtrack right as I type this.

replace nephew with cousin and I feel the exact same way.

@Video_Game_King: I don't understand your last sentence there.

@NTM

But we're not haters if I can speak for you, Dany. Maybe, just not our cup of tea.

Yes. You can say that. Halo never grabbed me. I played it a little bit and just returned it back to him in the same day.

I still play Reach from time to time. I still think Halo is the best multiplayer experience out there, that is as long as you havent grown tired of the CoD formula. I have, but Halo just never seems to get old.
