Love it or hate it, Gears of War revolutionized the third person shooter genre.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Resident Evil 4 did that (while not even being touted as one), not Gears of War.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

There were known 3rd person shooters before Gears. Gears may have revolutionized the 3rd person shooter genre on the 360, but not in general.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Gears is a love or hate thing. I happen to love it.

The game is not about complex mechanics and special powers. It's simply grab a gun of your choice, find a horde of enemies and let rip. If you want a game with a solid storyline, a host of interesting game mechanics and a cast of deep, emotional characters, go play an RPG. If you want to kill shit with guns no questions asked and do it in a bad ass way, Gears is pretty much the daddy imo.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

It's not a love or hate game. I don't love and I don't hate it. It's a game I'd play if I have nothing else to play, I find it decent, not bad, not great. The game doesn't do anything particularly good, but it doesn't really have any faults in the gameplay. This may sound silly, but I even enjoyed NFS Hot Pursuit '10 a lot more than Gears of War 1. I guess these cover based 3rd person shooters just aren't my type, that's why I lost interest in ME2 as well (I know it's an RPG, but most of the gameplay is 3rd person shooting).

I agree wholeheartedly with this. Really nothing more I need to add to it.

Well in my experience, that makes you an exception to the rule lol. Everyone I know either loves it or hates it.

So far, I find the 3rd installment to be the best yet. I love the new weapons, I love the polish that's been applied and I love the multiplayer.

One criticism though. EPIC, why the fuck did you exclude Tai from the multiplayer characters. I demand an answer.

EDIT: Kiz, not quite yet. I'll be getting it once my game funds roll in. But I'm looking forward to having improved handling and KERS and DRS.
