    idk man if not by fun then what do you determine a game's greatness by? The main purpose of a game is for fun so i would assume the funnest games equal the best games.

    i do agree with most of what you said tho....ive stated numerous times gears is co-op driven thats what makes it stand out is the co-op. The multiplayer is nothing special and if your playing solo then there are tons of games that i would rate higher. The 360 has a pretty shitty list of co-op games so when you have a good one come out its understandable for ppl to give it high praise and maybe even overate it.
    Great are games that are timeless like FF77,Super Metroid and MGS3.Games where you can play long after their generation.Games that deliver memorable characters,stories and atmosphere.Games like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.Who will play gears in 10 years? Why would they when the games of future generations will have better Mp and coop? Gears just like COD are only relevant for the moment.They will be obsolete when the next entry comes out.I will still play Uncharted 2 and GOW3 because of the single player.Contra was fun back int he day,but it had nothing on Mario,Megaman or Castlevania.

    i can dig that. Only thing is i do think Gears will be one of those games. I played offline co op through the story mode and i can see that being played 10 years from now. Even with games having better co-op in the future there will be tons of ppl wanting to revisit "the best 360 game" just for the offline co-op story mode. But when you mention it alongside solidified classics i guess it kinda doesn't belong lol. Oh well i guess time will tell

    so we went from comparing 3rd persion shooters, to 1st person shooters, to action adventures games...

    why are timeless games like final fantasy and mgs even being mentioned in a debate about GOW...lol

    get a grip please.

    a shooter in this day n age does'nt need a decent storyline to be considered great, we are in an age of ONLINE gaming, a game can be fun and playable and be considered great...since wen did shooters need great storylines anyway lol...


    n aint y'all the same guys that say LPB is a classic game lol...does LPB have a great storyline ?...will LPB be remmebered with FF7 and MGS ? fuck outta here...u guys are crazy.

    I say it seems that cats try to undermine it because yall attempt to attribute its success to everything BUT its quality as a game but I disagree. Yeah the ideal game will be great in every aspect but I think pure fun gameplay alone can make a great in its own right. I mean, yeah, story among other elements of a game are all an important part of what can make it great but at the end of the day, it all boils down to having fun playing the game. Like I said before, yeah story is important, of course, but whats a game with a fantastic story if the game play is boring or complete shit? On the other hand a game could have a weak or even non-existent story but be fun as fuck and you'll play the hell out of it. Think games like Left 4 Dead. GOW is a classic series, period and i aint even on no fanboy shit. I love and play both machines. I love Uncharted and Killzone as much as the next man but IMO as far as the complete package and pure fun, nothin is fuckin with Gears and unless yall actually played through this one, I dont see how you're even in the position to assess the campiagn. If the shit was nothin more than an "average" TPS, all these other developers, including some of yalls favorites wouldnt be trying to copy and borrow from this series like they been doing. Im far from easily impressed as well but I know a good game when I play it.

    Only thing developers took from Gears was horde mode. Cover system you see in Gears was inspired by KillSwitch and the aiming was taken from Resident Evil 4 which is considered the game that redefined tps

    Yeah, thats right but I wasnt talking about what games influenced Gears. I know about games like Killswitch and Winback ( which was out even before Killswitch) that utilized the basic cover system before Gears but lets be real, who gives a fuck about those? When developers now think "cover systems" , Ill put my money on them thinkin Gears, not Killswitch. Thats why they do it similar to Gears in their games.

    yeah but u said gears is copied which mean it influences other games. gears is a copy of the two games i mention. gamers probably think of gears when they think cover system but i'm sure developers gives props to the originators

    Developers and game journalist have said this many many times. Gears of War was groundbreaking in 2006.

    We gonna make the case to make that word official. lol

    But I will disagree with you to a point there. The "funnest" game isn't always the best game. "Funnest" is dependent on the individual. "Funnest" to some might be because a game is easy and "funnest" to another might be a more challenging game.

    Obviously, you can't please EVERYBODY...

    But I think its fair to say that when 3 MILLION "individuals" purchase a game in one week, its pretty damn "fun" and "great" in terms of the general consensus...compared to games that straight up flop, especially when that flop game is a high profile sequel.

    My reply was at the comparison between best and fun. But sales don't necessarily mean something is great.

    I'm not taking anything away from Gears though. Its definitely great and fun and one of the best games this gen.
