They can't make Halo related games without Microsoft's green light and probably them publishing it.

A Halo MMO was supposed to be made a long time ago but it got canceled for some reason.

Having played Halo, I don't see why Halo is such a big deal.

There are better games.

It probably has something to do with preference and you are in the minority.

Halo is big partially because of its multiplayer. There don't seem to me to be many console (Xbox, specifically) FPS games that are as well-polished as Halo. Especially on the original Xbox when Halo 1 came out. And once everyone started loving Halo 1, then that franchise built itself as THE multiplayer Xbox game, and it just carried over through its sequels.

Plus, there's personal preference to consider. You may not like a lot of games that many people absolutely adore.

I personally agree somewhat, it's an overrated game (err, series). But they are still good games. But I do see why it's so popular.
