Halo 3 was one of the most hyped video games of all time. It was a time when Bungie was closer than ever to their goals of world domination. But how much has changed since then? Does the campaign and story still hold up after all these years? Well, we're about to find out.

Believe. When I put out my first video reviewing Halo 5's campaign almost 2 years ago, I had no idea these videos would resonate so strongly with people. You've all given me a chance to share my thoughts on this incredible franchise of games in a way I could've only dreamed of. I appreciate your patience and passion for these videos. And so... you have my thanks. For watching them until the end. Hard to believe it's finished...

About spark not hating chief: I don’t think spark ever hates anyone, as function/purpose is what is usually on his mind. At worst, he just gets mad. But given the situation, he has no greater purpose than to help the heroes contains the flood on earth or stop mass genocide. When he sees his ring rebuilt (partially), he is super happy to “be home” and that they all agreed for once to fire it to wipe out the flood. He only gets mad later because firing the ring in it’s partially unfinished state would result in losing his ring a second time, so he gets murderous to protect it rather then the heroes waiting the few days necessary to finish construction.

I think the change in approach to truth’s presentation is due to the fact his plans are all coming together. In halo 2, he had to seem more conniving due to the steps he had to take. Keep the elites and the arbiter on his terms until he could maneuver everything into place, and balance his power with mercy and regret. After the flood invaded high charity, he had replaced the elites with the brutes and started purging them. As all that was happening, he had one brute fleet slowly arriving on earth to prepare for his arrival. With him surrounded by loyalists and on his way to accomplish the great journey, he could be more zealous in his approach to the humans and dialogue. He no longer needed to act like the manipulator he was in halo 2. It isn’t impossible for a change like that to happen in his position.

Halo is VERY average, has always been VERY average, and the only reason why it is popular is because everyone got a free copy and it and recognises the name. The mass-marketed title was the only exclusive shooter to play on Xbox for years.

To anyone interested, it's quite easy to mod out the Cortana/Gravemind moments using the Assembly. The only thing that is left after the modding the blue grid after a cortana moment or the "wavy" effect while on a gravemind moment. You can even mod out the speed that gets reduced during those moments.

Just finished the third game, man what a fucking ride, I got to FINISH THE FIGHT after 13 fucking years (yeah should've bought a 360 I know) and I managed to not get myself spoiled hanging on to the hope it would get a PC port eventually, it was fucking worth it man, I still hated fighting the flood because I did not figure out they were weak to melee since I expected them to be like the first two games where you needed to pierce them with shotguns and stuff, but anyways most of the game was pure unfiltered unironic KINO, also, the halo 3 chopper vehicle is probably the single coolest vehicle in all of videogames

Halo 3 Multiplayer was the best in the series. Perhaps the best ever for a 1st person shooter. The The campaign was the most epic, and has the best sandbox. There is parts of 2, and CE's campaign I liked better. Some weapons, and infection forms were nerfed, but Overall I say this is the best in the series.

My gamecube, xbox, the 360, ps3, ps2, wii, nintendo 64. I may have a ps4 and ps3 now...but those game systems built my love for video games...thank god to these games for building my childhood. Placed amazing memories....they have done so much for me. If only if I could give praise and my thanks to the creators of these masterpieces.

Those moments where "Cortana" talks to you before you actually get to her are Chief's own thoughts. It's made clear Cortana is gone and she talks in a manner that doesn't fit for her and describes Chief's situations without her present. It's like Chief having stress attacks because he's been using Cortana as a coping mechanism. And after you get to her hologram Chief has his focus reneved, his mind doesn't wonder and he only focuses on his tasks. I don't get why people talk about Chief getting emotional for the first time in Halo 4.

Thanks for the nostalgia trip man!! I played these as a kid and now looking back at it as an adult, I finally understand the whole story in all it’s glory. The story had everything from relatable heroes, great villains, an awesome cinematic feel and most of all, emotion. You know that Bungie felt like Halo was and still is their baby and they wanted to end it off right!! Watching this made my love for these games multiply. Gonna play these again very soon. I just hope I don’t cry like I did when Halo 3 ended with Master Chief going back to sleep.

Halo 3: the hype, the game, the dlcs, the expansion, the 5 years of stagnation, the part of a failure, the 3 years of hietus, the tenth anniversary, the fixing of mcc, the legendary rise and fall of El dorito, the port to PC, and the future looks bright for this historical masterpiece of gaming. Happy 13th anniversary Halo 3.

I was a freshman in high school (9th grade) when Halo 3 came out on September 25th, 2007, my (at the time) girlfriend's birthday. I had pre-ordered the Legendary Edition of Halo 3 and at the midnight launch, I was the first one in line to get the Legendary Edition. The nostalgia of Mountain Dew Game Fuel, spending countless hours with matchmaking and custom games. Man, those were the days...

There is lore reason for your character slowing down. And its subtly explained earlier. Everytime the gravemind speaks to you it actually temporarily kills you. A marine explains that he pinged KIA when Cortana speaks to him for a moment which was actually the gravemind.

watching though this video i can say currently cyberpunk 2077 is now the most hyped game where even the most out of touch people have at least heard of it in passing. But with infinite currently delayed for a year and 343's current handling of the game has me worried and suspect where even hopeful talks with others makes me so cynical.

Just went through all of these today; I think the best thing about your Halo series is that it's not focused solely on the lore or the gameplay, but specifically on the intersection of both those things as well as the various details that happened during development and how all those factors culminated in the final product that we know and love. As an ethnic Chinese, the Halo setting holds a special place in my heart too; the modern Chinese nation-state forged its identity via tenacious resistance against militarily powerful, technologically superior, and brutally omnicidal invader where victory was throwing divisions of men into the meat grinder to buy more time, and it's easy to see parallels between the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Human-Covenant War.

37:17 I always imagined this moment more along the lines of Arbiter realising that Chief isn't going to make it. Chief's nod seems to indicate "Go. I'll stay behind," to get Cortana patched in to the Dawn's mainframe so she can fly them out. The portal is closing, and neither of them can pilot the Dawn without Cortana's help. Arbiter looks down after his own nod, as if in reluctant agreement that this is the only way, that at least one of them needs to survive for peace to truly be maintained between the Sangheili and the Humans. The Sangheili NEED the Arbiter (more importantly they need Thel 'Vadam) but the Humans can exist and thrive without Master Chief; there is no place for a soldier in a peaceful world, after all. With no dialogue and only a few seconds to act, Bungie established how close these two protagonists had become, able to read minute details based on the other's posture alone (as Arbiter never sees Chief's face a single time). In having Chief stay behind so Arbiter can reach the cockpit, they cement the brotherhood these two characters feel. That's just been my interpretation of that pivotal moment.

21:20 Hey hey wowowo I know I'm late to the party (over two years late), but I'm sorry Man of Acting, I cannot allow you to disrespect those dialogue bits like that. I was like 10 years old when my dad got my big bro and I an xbox 360, and the first game we played together, my very first shooter ever, was Halo 3. I didn't know shit about the game or the story, I was learning about it as we went along, and lemme tell you, those dialogue bits made my skin fucking crawl. Cortana's lines mesmerized and intrigued me, let me know she was special and I needed to find her. And the gravemind's voice and the distortion of the view while I'm making my way through hordes of flood just made me shit my pants, making it the cherry on top of a level that (to me) was freaking scary in itself.
