Neither are very good.

R:FoM was fun back at the beginning of this gen but now it feels very outdated, R2 was good despite a lot of people not liking the changes made to the series. R3's MP is a joke though and at launch was barely playable.

Killzone 2 had great maps and balance but the controls were pretty bad. Killzone 3 had better controls but everything else was fairly bad and had less features than its predecessor

Played Killzone 1-3 and Liberation and have nothing good to say about any of them. Resistance is okay I guess but the games aren't great.

Easily Killzone. It's amazing the amount of detailing the game has. Animations, AI, lighting and just about everything comes toghther to create an amazingly kinectic game. It's a shame that KZ2 had better maps and I think less arcadey gameplay, because KZ3 has better visuals and controls. Oh well, I am still enjoying 3 online as it's better than most FPS MP.

lol, just to save you some time here was the standard sw answer every time i complained about the gunplay in that game back in the day.

gawd! everyone knows guns weigh a ton and it takes 20 seconds to make a 180 degree turn in real life gawd!

then i'm all, no they don't you could hold the heaviest single operator weapon ever made and turn 180 degrees in less than a second and then they are all nuh-uh and i'm all yuh-huh and they are all nuh-uh.

Resistance has the better weapons set. By a good margi. Killzone has the better game though, the enemies are better, as is the intensity of the game.

Killzone gets my vote, but not by much. I would say the multiplayer in killzone is also better.

It's so rare for a game (especially a console game) to have maps as good as Killzone's. They are just amazingly well designed. And they look and feel the part too.

Resistance turned into a complete garbage franchise after the first game.

KZ2 was not bad, but those controls were just brutal so i skipped the third one.

Eh controls complaints aside I was talking strictly competitive. I'd give that edge to Killzone 2 any day of the week. It was one of the better cIass based game. But agreed in spite of Resistance 2 being mostly crap. That coop kicked ass.

He was talking about R3's campaign. If you wanna bring multiplayer into it R2 destroys just about everything on consoles.

Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 were my co-games of the year for 2011, with Crysis 2 being right behind them.

Killzone 3:

Amazing graphics

The best gunplay I've ever experienced on a console first person shooter.

Animations are top notch. Filling an enemy with lead looks extremely realistic and satisfying.

The game is dark and gritty, with those violent and satisfying melee kills.

All the guns feel great.

Resistance 3:

They brought back the weapon wheel, and each and every weapon feels great.

Ammo is scarce, so you're forced to use each and every weapon in your arsenal, which is a plus because they're so great.

No regenerating health. I can't emphasize how much I like this, because it reminds me of old school shooters. When you're low on health and desperately trying to fend off enemies and stay alive, nothing creates more tension. Knowing I can just hide behind a wall and regenerate health kills it.

The game is also dark and gritty, with a pretty damn evil setting.

The weapons all have an upgrade system that progresses with the more people you kill. Incinerating slugs in the shotgun are badass.

Great enemies, bosses, set pieces, I love the battle cries the Chimera bellow after you kill them.

They're both great franchises, but if there's 1 thing I know all too well, haters gonna hate!

I think I enjoyed Crysis 2 more than R3 overall, which surprised the s*** out of me. Campaign-wise I think they're both on par, but I didn't care for R3's MP whereas I loved C2's. Strange considering R3 was one of my most anticipated games and C2 was barely even on my radar.

I always thought that argument was silly, too. While I've had pretty limited experience shooting rifles, I can say that they're not that outrageously heavy.

They're so inconsistent,it's ridiculous.
R1 was okay.R2 was horrible.R3 was good.
KZ1 was horrible.KZ2 was boring.KZ3 was good.

I'll go with Resistance then.

I heard bad things about the online multiplayer in both R3 and KZ3, so my whole GotY thing was solely based on the campaigns. I never tried either game out online. I think I've played through every single FPS game released this generation, but the only ones I've tried online are the Battlefield and Call of Duty games. I don't even give the online a chance in other games because I just assume it won't live up to Battlefield and Call of Duty.

I think we both know that I always come out the winner of our debates with my intricately detailed and meticulously well thought out arguments and superb opinions. You just stumble over your words while trying to come up with ways to beat my unfathomable intelligence. It just wont happen broski.

I prefer Resistance. I didn't like Killzone 3 as much as 2, but I enjoyed all the Resistance games. 3 is by far the best one though and has one of the best FPS campaigns this gen.

Still have to play KZ3 and R3 - have both of them however - but from what I know R3 seems like it has a far stronger singleplayer component. Otherwise neither seemed terribly remarkable, but comeptant shooters - KZ being very heavy on the production values.
