With Halo 5: Guardians prepping to release for the Xbox One, it seemed like a good idea to rank all the previously released Halo games from least to greatest.

Halo 5 is being propped up as the next great Halo entry, but will it finally be able to top the genre-pushing efforts that Bungie introduced to the gaming world nearly 15 years ago? Well, before we get to the newest entry in the series it's time for us to first take a look at where the older entries rank and what makes them as great as they are.

10. Halo 2600
Ed Fries, a former vice-president of publishing at Microsoft made an actual Atari 2600 Halo game. The ROM was flashed onto a working cartridge and is actually playable on the Atari 2600 game system. And yes, it's an actual playable Halo game with fully featured gameplay, bad guys, guns and exploration. The game is also available online for those of you out there who don't have an Atari 2600.

Halo 2600 would be pretty awesome it if were made back in 1979... really. It has crude mechanics and flickering 4-bit graphics. It has a basic control scheme where players can shoot and kill baddies and collect items, moving around a mostly green terrain presumably made to resemble moving around on the Halo ring. It's good in the sense that it's basic and playable, but it's not something that holds up to the high-end games available in today's market. If you have an appreciation for Atari titles then you might like Halo 2600.
