So why are the Halo stories praised so much?

I can understand if the plots are amazing, but honestly, I don't even know. Every Halo game has bored me to tears with its singleplayer.

Both from its lack luster audio, to boriing very linear levels, To be honest the only Halo I have beaten was 3. I don't remember hardly any of 1, played almost halfway thru 2, and ODST I got about 80% thru before my disk got scratched when my cat tipped my system over.

II love the Halo games MP, and don't get me wrong I don't play the SP expecting explosions or massive firefights, or other COD-like things, but the SP in each Halo has just bored me. Even on legendary the actual fighting is just boring, sure its hard, but I don't feel anything but boredom playing it. Even though I die a ton, its just....I feel like I am forcing myself to play it.

Read the books, it's a good universe to tell stories in.

And next time, play through the WHOLE game before you judge it's story....

Coming from a long time Halo fan. The story is really good if you read the books. The comics, and expansion films make the story alot more great than it really is.

Until Halo 4 came out that is. Now it all sucks.

I don't think you should have to read a book to be immersed in a game...sorta defeats the purpose. Uninteresting enemies, blah art design, lackluster "hero".. Halo is as vanilla as games come.

But I enjoy the soundtrack/s

It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

Yeah the story is Meh but master chief is pretty.
The things I like about him is he is becoming an icon.
The Mario to Nintendo.
The Kratos to Sony
The Master chef to Microsoft.
