I'm sick and tired of...
« on: 26 Oct 2007, 22:16 »

people comparing Halo 3 to Gears of War. They are to COMPLETELY different games. It's hard to compare an IP with a continuing series. G.o.W's gameplay is more based on duck and cover, then run to the next cover spot so you can flank the enemy. Halo 3 is a more run and gun system. G.o.W. is heavily dependant on the gore and uber macho manliness. I mean, machine guns with FREAKIN CHAINSAWS ATTACHED! Halo 3 didn't need that because it's already captured the majority of gamer's hearts. They didnt' need to try and add something that in the end would fuck up system that worked already. Halo 3's online system is a full fleged online community that's way better than G.o.W's could ever dream to be. In short, both games are extremly good. But you cannot compare a Third person shooter that's fueled by testorone (no offense ladies) to a F.P.S. that's all about overall gameplay.

No, i showed how they cannot be compared due to contrasting elements.

Agreed.  Was there a thread somewhere that I missed comparing Halo 3 to Gears of War?

Not that i know of. This was brought about by just hearing friend's conversations about how Gears of War was overrated.

I think the Halo series is rather overrated.  I haven't played Halo 3 yet, though.

Well, I suppose that one could think that due to the fact that the Halo is out and everyone was automatically saying that Halo 3 is the best thing since pie, but in my opinion both games lived up to the hype and the expected delivery.

I'm not a huge shooter guy, so I wasn't totally overwhelmed by either, to be honest, but they're both good console shooters. But you're right in that they're completely different beyond the most superficial genre elements.

Actually he was contrasting them. Comparing is where you point out the similarities.

Maybe if you're using the words as keywords in a highschool geography essay question.

Guys, the Halo series is a hoax. They only made one game. A Bungie imitation company attempted to market a few knockoff games as Halo 2 and3, but its an easy ruse to see through. Dual-wielding? In a Halo game? PSHHHHHHhhhhhhhhh

It's basically the worst post I've seen in at least a day.
