Well i see alot of threads about "halo 3 takes no skill cod4 takes no skill blah blah blah. Well please shut your mouth about it, gears take skill so its really fun. The reason why people like halo 3 and cod4 more cuz its easier and people get in it. On the other hand on gears, if you suck, u wont have fun.

well anyways i just want you guys to just shut ur mouth about it and just play, in my opinion, cod4 is alot easier, had to admit it.... but its way more realistic than halo is. in halo you almost waste a whole clip just tryin to kill a guy without meleeing... WOW MEELING thats familiar and another thing i want to talk negative things about halo, well in slayer matches, lets say ur shootin a guy and hes almost dead and out of nowhere some guy pops out of nowhere and steals my kill. it seems a little unfair because i did the most damage to the guy #1 and guy #2 pops out of nowhere and steals my kill! in call of duty 4 everytime u do somethin and kill a guy, u r rewarded. but in halo 3 u have to win a frikkin match!!!! even though u have 30 kills or somethin. gears of war is also not realistic but it does take skill so ill pass that.

im not dissin halo 3, ill admit that cod4 is easier than halo 3.

well anyways theyre all great games.

You left out the part where Gears of War players are elitists who would rather see the game die out then have more noobs on their team.

My bro is sick at Gears, bbut he plays Halo3 and COD4 more.

Though he's only good at gears, because he's been playing long enough to get good at the Kungfu Backflip.

Oh and for Halo3 you get EXP for being in the top half for rumble pit/Lone wolves lol

And they do need to fix the melee system, but I find Halo's style more fun.
n the kill stealing part isn't really kill stealing. It's more like tactical assisstance from your team
better him dead than you right?

If only gears had more people.:(

Try to make sense of what I wrote and I'll give you a cookie.

Gear of War would be cool and take skill if it wasn't bogged down with so many glitches and possible exploits, imbalances in gameplay (melee'ing), and those people that scream at you for "stealing their cover."

I'm having a hard time wondering how you can say that Halo and COD do not take skill. Of course Halo and COD are going to be played more because their newer. Its like saying that when I get a new pair of shoes im not going to want to wear them. Gears does take skill, but there are some things in GOW that can make the game annoying like the fact that people can steal your kills. If you go through the trouble to down the enemy, I do think that you want to be credited for the kill, which in some cases you are not. Also, the whole crab walking is getting stupid and how people just quit in the middle of the match and arent penalized, such as in Halo when you loose EXP.

The gameplay in Gears of War is old news. When it first came out I can see where the gamers got all hyped up about it but now that there is a new taste of shooters out there they have moved onto something else and later. I like games that are realistic, therefore I like COD. Halo 3 is not the most realistic game out there but they dont have moves like the curb stomp and chainsaw that is extremely annoying. Also when you shoot someone with the shotgun, their guts go flying all over the place? What is that!

Another thing about GOW is the maps. The maps on GOW have never been appealing to me and I have always only played matches on gridlock. The other maps I couldn't care for. Also, the game types. I only really played warzone because I believe that if you shoot an opponent then he should not be able to get back up and start all over. Annex is fun, but can get boring over a long period of time. I want a game that I can play hours and hours straight.

Everytime I try to get into gears MP its not the glitches or the kill stealing or host advantage that turns me away from it. It is the community, I could not stand a single person on that game. They would curse you out for not doing good, complain the entire game about the other team doing too good, or talk trash the entire time. if they are doing good. Plus pretty much any negative player review about me always came from Gears of War because if your new to Gears of War and don't do good everyone knows that in the bible it says its a sin.

Gears of war, nope...Halo 3, nope....Call of Duty 4, nope...... Team fortress 2 Takes skill! but seriously I think all these games would have to imply someone having some sort of ability to beat another player online, therefore you would have to have "Skill" There will always be someone better(in most cases) then you so you would need to get better and beat them which would bring your skill up (to 9000!) So what I`m trying to say, most fps`s and games in general would take skill online to beat someone else.

Halo gives people the ability to pull off mass amounts of slaughter with a twist of fun.

COD gives people the realism of modern warfare not to mention it contains a ton of intense fighting.

I can't say anything about GoW since I've never played it but whatever, it's old, so grow up already.

Not to mention your typing takes no skill.

see i agree with this statment because i dont have live yet so i play halo 3 cod4 and gears and i agree everytime i do the hard work weaking the one guy then some other guy comes out of nowhere and gets my kill. it happens in gears but nearly as much and gears is great still a great game and im plainig on buying it no matter what ppl say but i hate it when ppl glitch especially i dont own the game yet im frekishly good wit sniper and because my teams winning the a hole starts glitching to win so that's what sucks at least in halo and cod4 there arent as many glitches for ppl to cheat like theres no tommorow

Gears was good up until around Christmas. But once every stupid kid got it for Christmas, it went to hell. The team play just seemed to disappear. It was like everyone had been playing Halo 2 up until Christmas, got Gears, and started playing it like it was Halo.

I made some great friends over Xbox Live around the launch of Gears. We had a group of about 20 of us that all knew eachother and played together as a team. We had 2 of our "friend servers" that we all played in. I would host matches, and everyone would want to join the game, but there wasn't room for everyone. People would be like "as soon as someone leaves, invite me!" It was good times. Gears of War and Rainbow 6 Vegas had the best Xbox Live communities at one point. But that changed.

All in all, Gears seemed like it was gonna be that shooter I'd be able to play for a year or two. It had a great community, good gameplay, and strategy and team play really counted for something. But that changed.

Like I said, Christmas, and all the glitches that followed absolutely RUINED the game. Epic should really be ashamed of how they let such a good game go to crap due to their inability to crack down on anything. Their "attempt" at stopping glitchers (the famous June 14th patch) was pretty rediculous. People had figured out how to glitch all over again within 24 hours of the patch coming out.

For you in the "got the game for Christmas" crowd, in the old days, instead of glitching with LB, you glitched with X. Good job, Epic. Just bind the "glitch" key to a different button, people won't figure it out...idiots.

The game WAS great, and still has the potential to be great. If they fix the glitches, and the community once again realizes how to play the game properly, it would be great. But I don't see that happening.

Halo has never required skill, my friends refuse to believe this and say that is needs tactics, sure maybe a place to shoot but Gears of war has only four players per team so if you aren't skilled you will have no hope. Now the only reason Gears has elite players who don't accept the noobs is because of the four player limit but to be honest a group of friends who know there way around the game even if they have lost every game alone can handle a group of elite players who don't know each other. I would know, I have seen it done.

Well i see alot of threads about "halo 3 takes no skill cod4 takes no skill blah blah blah. Well please shut your mouth about it,

tomoward41

dude...we can say the same to you for bringing up a topic that is totally based on opinion, no one plays like you, no one likes all the games that you play, and no one will like the fact that you are "shutting out mouths"....mouths that belong to thousands of people which will probably not like that condescending comment ESPECIALLY since you are just fueling the halo vs. CoD argument.....a pointless arguement nonetheless...

This is kind of true. Halo is just run and shoot. CoD4 does takes some skills. But just takes a lot of skills and it takes a while to get use to it.

Hated Gears online when I first started because I was ridiculously bad and got owned, hard... I then went back to Halo 2. After I got decent at Gears, it became the most enjoyable experience (and still is) I've ever had playing video games.

Truely if you play any of the games some of them and it depends on who you are in there opinions it's either you have skill or not, basically I'm pretty good in Gears, and Halo 3, and I've only played co-op with my friend on COD4 and they are all fun no matter what but everyone will basically either suck at a game or be a god some games may just require talent.

Ok Gears is great and all, but how a game in wich one shot kills with the shotgun are determined by an X factor or random factor that triggers randomly.

That is not a valid reason you think a game isn't good. Just because your not gifted at the game doesn't mean it's bad.
