If you've played the Halo games, you're most likely very familiar with their main menu screens. Just like the games themselves, the main menus are iconic. The theme songs accompanying the menu screens make them even more recognizable. But even if you've gotten rid of your original Xbox or Xbox 360 and sold your old Halo games, you can watch those menus and listen to the theme music through your Internet browser.

A website called halome.nu plays the main menus of all of the games in the series in an Internet browser. Although it's not an actual emulator--you can't interact with the menus--it's still a really cool way to see the old title screens for all of the Halo games. And they all have their respective soundtracks backing the menus.

You can watch the screens for Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 3: Mythic (the Halo 3 multiplayer disc that came with ODST), Halo: Reach, and Halo 4.

The website went live a few months ago, but this blast of nostalgia was too good not to share. I personally spent a lot of time looking at the Halo 3 main menu screen, waiting for people to get online so we could play multiplayer. I watched that screen and listened to the music so long that watching it now brings back some of my favorite memories of playing video games.

The next entry in the Halo series, Halo 5: Guardians, launches on October 20. Recently, Halo 5's theme music and images of its menu screen leaked, and you can check them out here.

What's your favorite theme music or main menu from the series? Let us know in the comments below.
