I'd play through them. It'll make far more sense. The first too games have a good story, except the abrupt ending to the second game, which won't bother you too much. You can go straight into the third game. :)

You can probably get by if you read the halo 1+2 story (plenty of online places but one of the best will be halo.bungie.org)

If you don't want to play due to the graphics then this is your only choice for understanding the story if you don't already, or maybe ask a friend to explain to you what happens if they have played through them and how Halo 3 comes to fit into it all.

Other than playing them this is your only other alternative as far as I can see.

Read the books if you don't want to play the first game through, it'll tell you all you need to know.
Personally I've only played 2+3 and I dont feel like there is anything that I couldn't have worked out, except maybe the basic understanding of the forerunners and the purpose of the Halo rings

SEE FIRST POST:

i dont want to play the first game because of the horrible graphics.

The graphics aren't horrible. Halo 1 & 2 are still good games to this day.

If you want to know the story then play them.. or read the books.. or look up wiki.. or I don't know, watch the cut scenes on youtube.

Which you could find out easily enough online via Google surely.

Just watch this:

halo in 5 mins

That'll get you upto date, the story is really nothing to write home about and in the second game particularly it should be enough to put you to sleep.

I started playing through Halo 3 without finishing Halo 2. I didnt think much of it because I didnt know the events of 2 (I had completed one). If you play through 3 alone then of course you wont undersand the story line or the build up to the final game in the trilogy - if you cant be bothered to play through them then google or wiki the story line at least.

I played 2 on pc and then weny back to 3 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Halo series is my favourite gaming franchise of all time and i love Halo 2 and 3 as much as anyone, however i cant believe
you say you cant be bothered to play Halo 1, as its the best game in the series without a doubt.
