The Top Ten

Halo 3
I like this one because it has a lot more action in it while Halo Reach all you do is go around and battle. On Halo 3 there is the awesome warthog run and the scarab battles. This one is the best in my opinion.

The Campaign seems to be building to an epic conclusion only to fizzle out into a couple of Flood levels. The Multiplayer and feature set of this game, however, are unsurpassed. Bungie built the greatest online experience of all time with this monumental achievement to interactive entertainment.
Way better then halo reach has way more easter eggs all the helmets are better then the ones in halo reach and has a better storyline

2Halo Reach
I'm in love with the Noble 6. The are like even "epicer" versions of Master Cheif! The graphics are the best yet, too. This is everything you could ask for in a Halo game. The assualt rifle looks pretty darn fine too.

This game has the most varied combat (space battles! ), some of the best multiplayer maps (both new and greatest hits), the best post-credits sequence (a level, not a cutscene! ), and Firefight 2.0, which exceeds the original in every way. Fighting through campaign with your own personal Spartan is awesome. Halo 4 had to take some things out (i.E. campaign scoring, theater); this is the only game where it feels like nothing is missing (except MC of course).
If you think I'm wrong then you're a noob, because I think Halo Reach is more fun than Halo 3. I get bored of it easy. I can play Halo Reach all day and not stop and still not be bored. Plus a great story and campaign, with more customizing and epic badges.

3Halo 2
Halo 2 was the absolute pinnacle of the Halo series, it took the first game and expanded upon it while keeping things simple. maybe on a technical level Halo 3 and Reach are better games, but Halo 2 just has a certain air about it that makes it a true classic and standout in the series
By far the best with only a few shortcomings. Amazing dual campaign with constant action and several Easter eggs. Very unique weapons vehicles. Graphics are stellar for there time and are enjoyable even today with some incredibly beautiful scenery to boot. The music is truly a masterpiece including bands like Breaking Benjamin and Incubus. The online multiplayer is the best of all the Halos. It is balanced and has a skill curb just high enough to challenge experienced players while low enough for those with less of an aptitude for competitive gaming. Add to that fun maps with some interactivity and great team based and solo gametypes it is truly the best and purest game in the franchise. So sad that they took the online for it down.
This is only 4th! Not only is it the best game in the franchise, it is the best original Xbox game out there. THE CAMPAIGN IS NON STOP ACTION! This should be better than reach by far! For those who have never played halo 2, Go by a $25 Xbox classic on ebay and get a $5 copy of this game RIGHT NOW!

4Halo 4
I love the campaign, it is the most emotional story out of all the games. I love the graphics and the audio, also the best in the series. The multiplayer and forge took a step back but it was still satisfying and fun. Oh, there's also Forward Unto Dawn.
If you start from Halo 4, like I did, and go backwards...the old halo games are not playable. The graphics even on Halo 3 are garbage. The gameplay on Halo 3 is rusty. 343 has knocked it out of the park. Bungie fans are confusing nostalgia with actual game play.
So far it has got to be my favorite, yeah 343 may of stuffed up in some places but it really is a good game, I especially love the Spartan Ops, I loved the campaign, Multiplayer I have never really loved but it's good.

5Halo: Combat Evolved
Best fps ever, and one of the greatest games ever. Had the most open campaign, with levels that are still a blast to play today. Multiplayer is also great, with outstanding maps such as Hang em' High, Sidewinder, and of course Blood Gulch. LAN parties with this game are to date one of the greatest experiences you can have in all of video games. Truly a masterpiece which deserves to be higher on this list.
The game that started it all. The nostalgia, the music the grunts running away like cowards while you attempt to stick them. No better feeling when you first step out of that pod and see a huge ring whilst that eerie music plays in the background. Who could forget the waves of covenant falling out of the gravity lift. I could go on and on. What a game
Halo Combat Evolved had the best Campaign, best multiplayer (2nd Is Halo 3, 3rd Is Halo 2) and Is just and original.
Classics always win.
Also It Had the Original Combat Evolved Pistol! Best FPS weapon In Video Game History!

6Halo 3: ODST
I love how this game speaks it's own language - it's brilliant how Bungie came up with a different style for Halo... But improving it? Darn, this is by far the best Halo game yet.

UlfricStormcloak

It may not be the best Halo, but I really thoguht it was a great game, especially with the multiplayer. I played with a friend of mine online and it was so fun, we plyed for three hours.
Same as Halo 3, except more boring campiagn and firefight!

7Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
Here is what it is: a game recreating the original best selling combat evolved. The game that introduced us to the one and only master chief. And what the anniversary here does is recreate the best campaign ever created into the same gameplay, just with WAY better graphics. Not to mention adding a great multiplayer the original game never had. Plus achievements and terminals, and if you have a Kinect, then I reccomend you to try out the inspect feature that will let you check out things in detail! Great game!
Best game, better graphics... Pretty sweet
What it's the same damn thing but better

8Halo Wars
Strategy games are what I play. Shooter Strategy = Epic masterpiece. Completely clever and high end strategy game. And it's not as violent! So mommy plays too!

UlfricStormcloak

A good twist from normal halo
Like the movies, hate the gameplay. One thing is that you ned to order men than kill them yourself! Also, you're just flying!

9Halo: Combat Evolved Custom Edition
Why is it that this outstanding game is beaten by halo wars, I mean halo wars is not even first person and its not halo. Halo custom edition is awesome it is a new way of playing halo its still first person also you don't need to mod the game to get cool vehicles like the pelican, the phantom even a fuel rod ghost and a dropship

IT NEEDS FAR MORE VOTES IN MY OPINION HALO WARS COME DOWN TO NO.9

10Halo (Xbox One)
You get your own ship and can travel to different plants and store your stuff in your ship including transports
Please don't be exclusive to Xbox One, I highly doubt that I'm getting one.

The Contenders

11Halo: The Master Chief Collection

12Halo: Spartan Assault
I know Spartan Assault is bad but how is it worse than 2 games that haven't even come out yet
