No one is playing the PC version of Gears of War because Call of Duty 4, Crysis, and Unreal Tournament 3 have all just come out.

I don't have Gears of War yet and probably won't get it for a while, there are already to many great games to be played and thats not even including all the new releases (the big titles mentioned above by DGFreak.

Why play "Gears of War" when you can play "Unreal Tournament 3"?

I've been playing through the campaign offline. It's a definitely a fun game IMO :D

Pure "popcorn" shooter that doesn't require much thought, it's about as linear as linear can be, completely led by the hand through the maps, can't even walk off edges.

I've said before, this ain't no Crysis by any stretch of the imagination, but to me it's still fun for what it is.

I might play some co-op online (definitely over my LAN), but I don't think is the type of game I'd be much interested in competitive multiplayer -- I'll be looking at the other big hitters for that.

Really bad release date. Who wants to buy a port of 360 third person shooter when PC exclusive Crysis comes out at the same time?

That's precisely the reason I won't be getting the game any time soon. I hate games where you can switch off your brain.

I have found that Gears' online is too bland and boring. The single player, however, is incredible and is why I rebought the game to play on PC; is for the fantasic single player with PC controls and functionality and the improved PC graphics.

On occasion, I don't mind. Especially when time only allows you to play in very short bursts at a time - need to be able to jump in/jump out easily.

Most people are still most likely playing the Orange Box, Crysis, and CoD4.. Brand new games.. Gears of War is a port fromt he Xbox360 that alot of people have already played to some extent.

i love online. there are some bugs, i havnt had any problems with crashing like some have. and i fixed the stuttering issue, so now the game is great. usually only like 20-50 people are online and usually just in the silver members area, never many in gold. i really like it, but then again i did'nt have it on my 360 so its all new to me. great game

The reason why no one is playing GOW online is because 90% of the people who have it can't even get it to run without crashing every 1-3 minutes.

I returned my copy for crysis due to the fact that I tried for 2-4 hours (because installation takes literally 45 minutes) to get the game to run and no matter what it would not run the game. I'm no computer genius, but i do know computers decently well. The game was broken. Windows Live might have been the problem, but it wasn't worth the headache I was getting trying to run it. My computer can run Crysis High-Very High so don't say it's my computer. Just a bad release that I wasn't willing to put up with. They should be ashamed to have released something that wasn't ready yet. I expected more from these two companies. So they lost my money and interest.

Gears of war have actually been selling very well. Newegg.com sold out Gears of war two days after its release, same with Best Buy. The people who are buying Gears of War are the ones who dont have a x360 and been waiting for it to come out on to PC. Those people seem to be only interested in playing the single player storyline then online.
