The Visual Evolution of the Halo Series This GenerationS

We're nearing the end of this console generation—which makes it easy to reminisce about where this generation has taken us. In the graphical department, it's hard to deny how far we've come. Look no further than the Halo franchise, which has had multiple iterations this generation, to see evidence of a visual leap in the last 8 years.

Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Here are a few of the Halo games this gen—missing are Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. That, and we'll be relying on community screenshots to properly showcase what these games look like. No bullshots or company-created shots here! They are all from theater mode though.
