Should I skip Halo 1?
You’d definitely be missing out on one of, if not the best, Halo campaigns. It’s so different to just read about it as opposed to playing through it and experiencing it.

- If at all possible, play Halo 5: Guardians in co-op mode.
Is it worth playing Halo on Legendary?
That being said, unless you’re a Halo veteran, I would not recommend playing through on Legendary for your first run through any of the campaigns. For a newcomer, it’s just plain not fun – especially the BS oneshot snipers in the second game. Heroic is the most balanced in terms of challenge and fairness.

Should I play Halo 3 on Legendary?
Halo CE, 3, 4, ODST, and 5 are all perfectly fun on legendary. CE especially i always enjoyed the most on the highest difficulty. I think if you want more difficulty in 2 or Reach you should just play heroic with some skull modifiers on.
