The game, Halo 3, one of the most popular games for the Xbox 360, created by Bungie, mostly used for the multiplayer, as the campaign sucks.

In the campaign, you are the Master Chief, also known as Spartan 117, John, and the Anti-Chri- oh wait nevermind. He is part of the Spartan II (2) project by the UNSC. He is the last remaining Spartan as of 2552.

Halo, a rip-off of Larry Niven's Ringworld, is a large super-weapon used to destroy the Flood. It has only been fired once, which destroyed the Forerunners and all sentient beings within it's radius, since, in actuality, the only way to kill the Flood is by starving it.

The Flood are a parasitic alien life-form that have the ability to latch on to a sentient being and turn it into, basically, a zombie. Also known as a rip-off from Valve's game, Half-Life, the Flood are extremely smart and are able to do many things, like repair ships. The Flood are able to spread with the spores they emit.

The Forerunners are the ones who controlled the Halo rings before they fired one and killed themselves (how smart). It was supposed to starve the Flood, and it would have, had the Covenant not have invaded the ring the Flood previously occupied.

The Covenant, a group of many- uh, actually, five- different species (Brutes, Grunts, Drones, Hunters, Prophets (and previously Elites)). They are the ones who believe that Halo will "Save" them, instead of kill them (which it does).

The Elites were once part of the Covenant before they found out the truth about the Halo rings, as told by the Gravemind. They later side with the UNSC humans.

The Gravemind is the Flood's brain, I suppose. It is extremely intelligent, and I believe it is the one that plans the Flood's attacks, and so forth.

A particular Prophet, the Prophet of Truth, is trying to fire the Ark, telling the Covenant that they will be Save if they believe in God- I mean Halo (although I think he knows that Halo is actually a weapon). He tries tries to fire the ring, but fails. Three times.

The Ark is like the command center for all of the seven Halo rings. It also has a back-up Halo to replace the fourth Halo ring destroyed by the Chief.

To sum it up, the Anti- I mean Master Chief goes to kill Jesu- I mean the Prophet of Truth to stop him from firing God- I mean the Halo rings.
Really, Halo 3 isn't a good game, I suggest buying Halo: Combat Evolved, or Halo 2. They're much better. Because Halo 3 is played by a bunch of twelve year-olds who think they're all that when they're not.

A religious symbol ussually associated with the Bible and commonly used in paintings in the medieval era of saints etc.
A First Person Shooter for Xbox with an strong storyline, amusing physics, great multiplayer, and great controls. Slightly overrated.
The young girls heart was so pure you could practically see a halo over her head.

Halo, beer, and 16 people.

1. A disk (or a ring, more recently) above one's head, usually used in religious context. A halo usually indicates that the one below the halo is a good person.

2. A video game series developed by Bungie Studios, starting with Halo: Combat Evolved back in 2001. Combat Evolved is widely recognized as the game that single-handedly brought attention to the Xbox. Halos 2 and 3, released in 2004 and 2007, respectively, were very well received.
The series' popularity led to two spin-off games, Halo Wars, developed by Ensemble Studios rather than Bungie, and Halo 3: ODST, essentially a filler for the time between Halo 3's release in '07 and Halo: Reach, a game set to be released in 2010. Since Halo 2, Halo's online multiplayer has been incredibly well-received by anyone who doesn't have a shit connection.
Many gamers think Halo is an overrated and generic FPS. Generally, the rest seem to think that Halo is the greatest thing ever to grace their souls. There is an equilibrium, which is the reasonable players who feel that enjoying one game does not make you 100% exclusive.

Canonically, the correct timeline for Halo is:
Halo Wars
Halo: Reach
Halo: Combat Evolved
Halo 2
Halo 3: ODST
Halo 3
Just because Halo fanboys can be insufferable, doesn't mean the game is shit. Any reasonable person wouldn't call the game anything short of amazing.
