Halo 3 is trending on Twitter at the moment, and if you're a fan of Halo 3, that's about all you need to know to warrant a trip down memory lane to revisit what many consider the best Halo game of all time. The two themes present in Sunday's Halo 3 trend are that people are super nostalgic for the days of the Xbox 360 game, and they're also not quite sure why it's trending.
If you're onboard with the Halo 3 hype train but still want a bit more context on why it might be trending, it appears to be the result of a question posed by the official Xbox Twitter account. After asking what its followers top three games of all time were, Halo found itself in the rankings multiple times thanks to games like Halo 2 and, of course, Halo 3.
