Nerd Wars! Which Gears of War is Your Favorite?

The Gears of War franchise is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in gaming and for good reason. This series revolutionized cover-based shooting and raised the standard for what was considered “next-gen” graphics. We love every game in it’s own way, but we all have our favorites. For this week’s round of Nerd Wars! we want to know your Gears of choice.


Megadeth obviously loves Gears of War more than any of us combined. They wrote a song trying to capture it’s glory.


      1. Uhu… how come “There can be only one” like five times then (or four, we don’t acknowledge film #4 – because IT MAKES NO SENSE!)?

  1. I’m all in for the original. It’s probably just because I played the campaign solo so much when it came out, but it also feels more raw than the others and I appreciate that.

    1. Now this is a bold statement, that not everyone will agree with, but I honestly believe the first Gears of War changed shooters forever. It was a huge milestone for ‘next-gen.’

      1. I couldn’t agree more! Resident Evil 4 started the over the shoulder thing, but Gears perfected it. It’s incredible how well everything works except for the silly spotlight car sequence. All those other people just don’t know what’s good.

  2. This is one of my biggest “List of Shame” Franchises. I have yet to finish Gears 1 :(. And not for any other reason than time and other games! I really like what I played!

  3. Wasn’t a huge fan of ‘3 or Judgment, but I had a blast playing the first two (particularly the original). Playing alongside 3 buddies in 4v4 games of Warzone online was my first (and best) experience of Xbox Live. Gridlock and Mansion were awesome maps!
