Poll Uncharted or Gears of War - which is the better franchise in your opinion? (107 votes)

Uncharted 54%
Gears of War 46%

They're both good franchises, but I always liked how Uncharted was about fluid movement and platforming. The multiplayer was also more fun and silly (where you can summon things to reek havoc). It also had more verticality to the maps. In other words, it's the opposite of Gears. Plus, the cast of Uncharted were cooler and more charming. The campaigns also had some cool set pieces (like the train in Uncharted 2). So that's my pick. But I am playing Gears 5 multiplayer and it's fun, just different.

the actual shooting is much better in Gears

i've probably got a similar amount of enjoyment out of both franchises

Uncharteds best campaign moments are better than anything in gears campaigns, but gears multiplayer is the best thing between the two franchises, as it is substantially better than UC multiplayer.

Both franchises aren’t all that special.

I think they are both pretty mediocre.

If Gears never existed would we have gone through that awful period of slow cover shooters?

If Uncharted Never existed would ND still be making fun games?

Gears of War... Uncharted has better dialogue and story and I love it but Gears of War just simply is the better third person shooter.

Platforming in uncharted is a joke

I like both, but Uncharted is still a great franchise. Gears latest releases haven't been great. Uncharted 2 is still the god of modern third-person shooters.

Gears of War gets my vote. I enjoy Uncharted though. Played 1, 2, and 3. The second one was my favourite.

I prefer Gears but really hate how in your face they've been with microtransactions in 4 and 5... 5 has other stuff to complain about as well. Have barely played it the last several months. Kinda bummed about the state of the series as a whole.

Don't really care about Uncharted too much. 1 was decent, 2 improved but was overly cinematic, 3 was even worse in that regard I think and I skipped 4.

I don't like Gears over reliance on waist-high cover.

And I don't like Uncharted 3's 'we painted the obvious path you need to go yellow'

I was enjoying Uncharted 1&2, but 3 was just an instant turn-off for me.

  • Uncharted series=single player experience.
  • Gears of War=MP experience.

At the end of the day, I like both series but Uncharted gets the upper hand for me.

True. Mafia 1 and 2 are much better games.

I prefer Uncharted, though I did enjoy the Gears campaigns. As for MP, i've only played the early Gears MP, so I can't really say.

I enjoyed Uncharted more than Gears because of the stories and adventure aspect of the games.

I thought Gears had the potential to be so much better, especially after 2 and 3 (best in the series)

And then they made Judgement.....

Uncharted honestly. I enjoyed Gears but to me the series really didn't evolve as much.

Uncharted is so boring. I cannot speak for uncharted 4 as I have not played it. But 2 and 3 were a snooze fest.

At least with Gears of War you have a reason to keep playing. So for me, Gears.

I have only played Gears of war 1 and 4 and have never played an Uncharted game, so I don't think I can accurately or fairly vote.

I agree with the general sentiment but what irks me about Gears is that the mechanics don't seem to have evolved. Contrast that with Uncharted with the first game being janky, the second game being much improved and the 4th game having legit good gunfights and encounters(though the pacing is terrible).

Perhaps Gears had nowhere to go but down because it was much better than Uncharted initially anyway? I dunno. Gears 3 to 5 just do nothing for me. Even the MP.

The Uncharted entry on the Vita has been the only one I have played and based it alone, I wouldn't try another in the franchise. Gears was alright....the two I've played.

Basing the uncharted experience on the vita isn't right and far from what the game actually delivers.....play the uncharted remasters on PS4 (if you have one). It's A LOT better.

For me, it's Uncharted. Better stories, better characters and it's basically a combination of Gears of War and Tomb Raider.

- It sure would be fun watching someone attempt to play an entire Uncharted game with one hand. Especially during the final fights!

People should give a better chanche to Gears 5, much more improved over 4 and the multiplayer is really fun. Try king of the hill, its a blast. Graphics are top notch.

I don't like either, however ND said they were lost until they saw Gears and took inspiration from it, and it has been shown that can it be played with one hand, so as much as I dislike Gears I will go with that.

I liked Gears 1 a lot, and enjoyed playing 2 & 3 as well. I'm over the series now though, so I have no interest in the sequels.

Uncharted, I've only played 3 from start to finish, but I didn't think it was particularly good; too much flash and not enough substance.

Damn. If I had to recommend one Uncharted game, it would definitely be 2.

lol...

Both games took their biggest gameplay elements from Killswtich,and gameplay talking Uncharted gameplay is nothing like Gears,Uncharted took more from Tomb raider than anything on its mechanics.

Is not a squad shooter.

Is multi level in design and more platform oriented.

The only thing they have in common is shooting and been 3rd person,with taking cover which both credit killswitch for it.

Oh that is a surprise you went with the xbox choice wow i didn't expect that.

Uncharted shines when all the elements of shooter and traversal come together in an encounter. The issue is that ND tend not to focus on that. Gears shooting style is more solid. Its close I give UC the slightly edge overall. UC took inspiration from gears though and got better. I don't know Gears deserve some credits for that. Gears series just tapered off for me.

Uncharted because Nate is a douchebag, but a damn likable duchebag with cast of very likable supporting characters. That said, every uncharted last boss fight is horrible.

Uncharted easily for me. I'm replaying the series and it's a great series. I was never a fan of gears tank like controls and sucking into walls or chainsaws from 15 feet away.

I played the first uncharted and I really didn't like it (which is odd because from what I gathered it's similar to tomb raider which I love), So gears but mainly for the story the game play is meh.
