Six of The Best Custom Games of Halo 3!

Halo 3 is one of those games that just give me good memories whenever I think of it.

Perhaps that’s just the nostalgia talking, but can you blame me?  It was an entertaining game in many ways!  We’re talking a campaign that is filled with memorable moments, multiplayer that was stupidly well designed, and, the topic of today, the Halo Forge, which allowed tons of creative ideas to flourish.

The hero must grow to beat the villain, must overcome every challenge put in their way, and when done right, this journey can add so much to the narrative of a video game, cementing these particular villains as some of the best.

Today, we’ll look at the five antagonists that I personally enjoy the most.  A combination of straight coolness, narrative importance, and in-game impact, is generally how I decide the few antagonists that make this list.  There are a lot of good ones out there, threatening gamers across the world, but in my opinion, these five are the cream of the crop.  With that said, let’s get to it!
