1. A glowing incorporeal circle that horizontally resides several centimeters over the head of an angel or a saint.
*In the case of anime it resides over the heads of anyone who has died(see DBZ).

2. An good FPS that was initially available for Xbox and now also the PC it is horribly overrated by little 12-year-old fanboys whos computers are so bad that they cannot even play Half-Life let alone UT and thus have nothing to compare Halo to. Halo's godlike status in their eyes is something very dear to them for it is the only thing that justifies their purchase of the Xbox.
1. The angel descended upon the earth and all gazed in awe at the halo that marked him divine.

1.*Goku: Hey yo Krillin you died!
Krillin: Yeah and now I have this wierd thing over my head, hey look it jiggles, wheee!

2.
Fanboy: OMG! Hal0 is t3h best game evah!
Real FPS gamer: It is decent but offers nothing new, UT is way more fun, and Far Cry is better than Halo too. All Halo has is graphics.
Fanboy: Haha, you are just 2 p00r 2 buy an Xbox so you got a 3 Ghz proccessor with 1048 corsair Ram, 120 GB HD, and ATI Radeon 9800 instead. Stop whining.

Real FPS Gamer: Whatever.

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.
