''Halo'' is one of the best-known {{Killer App}}s. When the original UsefulNotes/XBox was announced, there was a lot of skepticism from those who had already experienced the UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars and had no reason to believe the XBox would go anywhere. Their reasoning wasn't inaccurate: [[FourIsDeath Three Is Death]] in the console market, which (until then) had had trouble supporting even ''two'' consoles; and, as released, the [=XBox=] did not (seem to) have anything worth playing. (The fact the original Xbox was an ''American-made console'' didn't help, after the disaster the UsefulNotes/AtariJaguar was.) But once gamers got their grubby little hands on it, ''Halo'' singlehandedly kept Microsoft in the race, with Magazine/{{Edge}} [[CausticCritic Magazine]] even going so far as to call it "the most important launch game for any console, ever." All of its sequels have set "biggest-opening-day" records. The franchise as of October 2012 is [[http://www.strategyinformer.com/news/20536/halo-4-most-expensive-microsoft-title valued]] at a cool $3 billion.

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead: Subverted. Flood Combat Forms can be eliminated with a precise shot to the Infection Form "piloting" the body. When this happens, the Combat Form will fall over as if dead, and a gaping hole will be seen where the Infection Form once was. However, from ''VideoGame/Halo2'' onward, another Infection Form may wander over at any time and take control of the Combat Form again, with the Combat Form having the same amount of health it had before it was "killed." This means that in order to prevent dead Combat Forms from coming back to life in this manner, the player either has to either kill every Infection Form in the room or manually dismember each Combat Form killed by a "headshot" after it hits the ground.

''Halo'' is a massive SpaceOpera franchise. Originally a FirstPersonShooter created by Creator/{{Bungie}} Studios as an {{Xbox}} exclusive, it has since blossomed into multiple sequels, {{Gaiden Game}}s, and even an immense ExpandedUniverse.
