As of emotion i mean like it added a sad feeling, and it was more affecting how the player feels and stuff.


I vote Halo 2.

Oh yeah, the part where the Flood start taking over was very well done. The music also adds alot to the emotion and atmosphere.

Indeed, and the level when the Arbiter lands and finds the Plasma Rifle with the Elite's blood on it; Best soundtrack in the whole gaming series... That's for sure. Oh and another reason i say the High Charity level(s) is because when the brutes start killing everything, especially the grunts it made me feel a pinch of nerd sympathy. But the Arbiter level after the High Charity's was also really emotional.

Halo 3 is my definite choice. The emotion in just everything... Johnson's death, Miranda's death, the last cutscene didn't really affect me... except just randomly standing up during that ceremony and saying "Thank you Bungie."

Apart from that, Halo 2.

halo 3 was good but I feel halo 2 was a bit more emotional, but I'm pretty sure halo 2 was longer and had more cutscenes

Never played Halo 3 or above, but Halo 2 definitely had a great soundtrack. First time I ever felt raw to a video game's soundtrack.

Halo 2, Reach definitely tried to be the most emotional, but Halo 2 was.

now that I think about it, halo 3 odst is definitely worth a mention too, especially if you listen to the audio logs throughout a playthrough.

I remember the first time I played it I felt a huge emotional connection with the city, and the events expressed through the audio logs aswell as the actually gameplay, and how they both tied together.

Halo 2, but you could hand pick elements of Halo 3 that were more emotional, finding Cortana again after spending a 90% of the game away from her.

Halo 3 ODST had the most emotion for me, mainly in the environments and music. Such a spectacular game in those two aspects. Halo 3 comes closely after that though, mainly because it retained the most (space opera). Halo Reach is an honorable mention for the last level alone (Lone Wolf).

ODST. the time as the rookie where you thought all your pals were dead. the rain, the jazz, the sadness.

h2 was the only one that made me nearly cry. at the time the game was first released, the music stirred me so much. i think the story made the hugest impact with me, the themes of betrayal, loss, and even hope are so evident in the game.

fufuuuuuuuuu prophets! >:{ lying just to keep themselves safe... exiling the elites was such a stupid move :[ but apparently in halo 4 they are back with the covenant, thanks for ruining what bungie built up over 2 games 343...

sooooo much backstory bro.


Lol you playdrarised my thoughts XD. (was a joke).

I hate to admit it, btu none of them.
As much as the moments were sad, the writing was ._. and it just didn't invoke any emotion. Didn't feel sad at all, how ever hard I tryed.
Halo's writers should take a lesson from Mass Effect's and Gears of War's writers.
Then again, when DOES an FPS have an amazing story line?

In my opinion,
Halo 1: not really.. just a little bit on the ending
Halo 2: Definitely worth mentioning. As everyone else has said, the invasion of Earth and ESPECIALLY Arbiter's conflict with the brutes later in the end came in really strong.
Halo 3: Also worth recognition. Halo's third core character, Sgt.Johnson finally dies as well as Captain Keyes. The ending with Cortana and 343 Guilty Spark really tied up the loose ends and it ended really well in addition to the emotional feelings
Halo 3 ODST: Another one worth a bit of recognition. Yes, it does tell the story from more of a "human" perspective rather than the main storyline and it definitely gives a good background image of the Invasion of Earth and what happens in New Mombasa while the Chief is at Delta Halo. Great emotional game as well as the suspense.
Halo Reach: As the storyline already shows, this game has been a great emotional game while this time, connecting more with the "forgotten" spartans on Reach. Like ODST, this is more of a background filler and effectively shows the heroism and loyalty spartans had on Reach.
Halo Wars: Like ODST, this brings in more of a perspective from the UNSC Army than the actual story. Another background filler as it shows the heroism of Hard-headed marines, well co-ordinated officers and the bonds of friendship between the characters. In the end, it also portrays the heroism of certain characters that brings up the phrase "We have too many dead heroes in this war"

Saying something is worth mentioning implies there are others that aren't, whereas here the only one you say has no story is the game this site is centered around.

Uh, not necessarily, he could be saying it to emphasize that one deserves the spotlight more than others in his opinion. And this is about emotion, not story.

No, look closely. He says all of them warrant recognition or mention, and doesn't really say which particular one he places above the rest.

Where?

True that I say all of them are worth mentioning and some recognition.. but just to simplify that post, I'm just gonna stick with Halo 2 and Halo 3.

ODST. Unlike all of the other games, which focused on events and action to drive the plot forward, ODST was very much a character-driven story.

...in the post?

Perhaps I was not clear in what I wanted you to point out. Where in his quotation does he state Halo 1 has no story? He states it has a little emotion compared to the others, but I don't see anything else. Explain your deduction.

Halo 1 to me did have some nice pinches, mostly because you are stranded. The fact your forces and supplies are limited and the odds are totally agaisn't you were good. The mystery, fighting with fewer and fewer marines...

Then, Halo 2 had alot of potential but they ran out of time. Story telling wasn't up to par and it was missing CIVILIANS in the cities.

Halo 3, was a return to the roots. Finishing up many story arcs and everything, that was just great. I recently replayed through the whole campaign and that was awesome. It did have it's flaws, however. The graphics went down by a bunch between the ''Halo 3 announcement trailer'' and the actual in game cinematic. This disapointed me a bit.

My first time through odst, it was midnight and I felt really involved in the story. The rookies missions do a great job of feeling alone, with the romantic-dinner music and all.
I also thought reach (my first time through) did a job with the deaths of noble especially kats death, cut off mid sentence by a needle to the brain. Epic.
Halo 1 also had some freaky moments like fighting the flood for the first time and finding a floodified Keyes in the truth and reconciliation. It had a "the s@@@'s really hit the fan this time kids feel too it. Realising that you were the last soldier on the ring also added to the experience. Jeez, typing on iPod sucks.

Yeah same here. It wasn't so much as the thought of possibly being the last Human in the streets of Mombasa, but the jazz which made it so depressing when you're running around as the Rookie.

In my opinion, I think Halo 3 had the most emotion.
