Which Halo games do you think had the best/worst stories and why? excl Halo Wars

Most of my friends seem split between Halo Reach and Halo 4 having the best stories. Halo 2 seems to be regarded as the worst story.

Reach was definitely the best

2 was the worst

Halo 2 was the start of so much awesome, but it's still the worst for me.

Halo 2s story/campaign didn't suck but it was the "worst" when compared to the others IMO. Now the mp is a different story, that started the halo phenomenon. Reach comes in second simply because nothing in the campaign had me wowed or THIS IS AWESOME type moments other than space battle of course. Your fellow spartans dying off had no effect because you knew it was coming to each one. They did end reach strong though I'll admit.

I am currently playing thru this Halo 4 campaign and I am liking it so far. Cortana's story is somewhat intriguing I guess. Overall it's not that bad. I thought Halo 2 was fun as well.

Halo 2's story is probably the weakest, but the environments were some of the best in the series.

Halo CE had my least favorite environments, but the story is great.

Overall, my favorite story is Halo 4's. Chief was a badass semi-silent protagonist, but the characterization they gave him in 4 was the perfect direction to take. He's still just as badass, but the player can now easily relate to the character. Much unlike when they gave Sonic and Tails voices

To me, Halo 3 had the best story since it ended the trilogy in such a great way. The levels were great too, especially the return to an unfinished version of Installation 04! Halo 4 was fascinating too, Halo 2 was boring and Reach's story was just decent.

Best: Halo CE - It was so awesome, the mystery of the forerunners and they're huge buildings and the mystery of the flood and the halo's, and a good twist.


Worst: Halo 4 - They totally ruined the best thing about the forerunners which was the mystery about them, and they made Master Chief "the chosen one" just like every other video game ever, instead of being just a really lucky soldier, the didact was a boring villain and not interesting.

I bet you hated the last two seasons of Lost. Writers create a mystery to keep us interested and wanting answers, so they answer some of the questions 12 ****ing years later, and you're mad? Cause **** storytelling, right?


Edit: On topic - 2 > 4 > 1 = 3 > ODST > Reach.

I still remember losing my **** when I found out I'd be playing as an Elite and their Civil War was a good change of pace. People are just butthurt the Arbiter was Halo 2's main character. As for Reach, boring characters, retcons out the ass, and an overall stupid story with worse gameplay put it at the bottom.
