Okay, so I'm gonna try to make a concrete definition, not in favor of haters or fanboys. So, Halo is a video game, can we all agree on that? Good, here we go...

Halo:Combat Evolved (CE)

So, the main character, Master Chief, is a human/cyborg guy who's really tall. So, he's trying to save earth from a bunch of aliens, called The Covenant(weird name right?). Anyway, while he's slaughtering aliens, The Covenant released some kind of parasite call The Flood which basically turns everything into zombie type things. Master Chief blows the spaceship that the Flood are on. Oh yeah, most of the game takes place on a circle thing floating in space called the Halo(hence the name of the game). So, Master Chief saved the galaxy, right? Right?


Okay, awww crap. I haven't played this game in a while. There's not much you need to know about this game besides Master Chief said 'FINISH THE FIGHT'(The thing they say every 5 minutes in Halo3)


Chiefy's back and he's ready to kill more aliens. In Halo3, Chief (SPOILER ALERT!!) blows up Halo and escapes in a dramatic car getaway level. Chiefy also drives the car into a spaceship to fly away with his Starsky and Hutch-esque buddy Arby. Oh yeah, there was also a bitchy computer lady named Cortana who whines all the time throughout all 3 games. What a bitch.

Halo3: ODST

In this game you play as an ODST

Halo Reach

I only played the beta but I'll update this once it comes out.

Your halos are glowing so brightly we won't need the lamps, that's very nice.

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.
