Has never played either Gears of War or Halo? Some people were talking about these games at school and it's just weird when you can't discuss a game that's out on the console you play. :confused:

But seriously I love all Halo's, not a Big Gears Fan but it was enjoyable with friends in co-op campaign

I think to avoid this situation in future you ask said friends who are talking about the games to lend them to you ASAP and get caught up.

Or use the internet to read all about them so you can pretend...the first option is probably more entertaining to be fair.

Ha ha ha ha, I'm very surprised that majority of the replies was "you're the only one". I know these two are like Mario and Link [Zelda] game for Nintendo, but was actually surprised that no one else - other than OP - had not played these two game. Maybe we'll get one or few people who had not play either game as the thread continue.

OP: You should borrow the game from your friends and try it out. They are great game, with lot of problems :p [Or maybe just Gears with lag. Not much of Halo player so....]

Sad part is most of my friends are on PS3, and the one who has a 360 is big into sports games. :( Maybe I'll rent it one day.

Yes, your the only one.
No he's not. I never played any of them. I have GoW since I got it in a dual pack with PGR4, but never played it.

I'd like to try Halo sometime, though, just have to figure out what game would be good to start.
Same with GoW, heard it had co-op, so basically I'm just a decent coop partner away from playing it. Then again I'm totally occupied with FFXIII atm, followed by Red Dead Redemption..

while I have personally played and enjoyed both..I have a friend who has played neither....and owns a 360. He is a hardcore rpg nerd and loathes all shooters with a passion.

Halo was actually the first game I bought for my 360. I didn't know or care about achievements or gamerscore at the time. I've also played Gears just to throw that out.

lordthrash
04-20-2010, 11:01 PM
Wow, i thought everyone had at least tried them out. I am 3 achievements away from 100% every Halo game on the 360. I am working on all the Gears next. They are great games and deserve to be at least played once. (BTW... I am a halo superfreak so i am probably a little biased!)

$RebelG
04-20-2010, 11:03 PM
Never played either on the 360. I did actually buy Halo for my PC years ago, but because it kept freezing on me every couple of seconds I didn't like it. Can't say I'd ever play either of them though unless I borrowed them from friends. Don't think I'd enjoy them though, don't really seem like my kind of games.

You are not alone. Neither one ever looked interesting or compelling to me. Or maybe I just prefer flamethrowers to chainsaws!

I've played both. In fact, Gears of War was my first game for the 360 while Halo 3 was my third.

GameMasterTwig
04-20-2010, 11:33 PM
I have never played Gears of War and only recently played Halo 3 before it was stolen buy the same person who sold it to me. Wife will not let me accuse him though (in person that is).

04-20-2010, 11:56 PM
I played Gears when it first came out on my friends xbox. beat the game on hardest difficulty on co-op and i never played any of them again. (its a great game, i just didnt play them).

I have played all halo games and i enjoyed them but im not no hardcore halo fan

I think if those two games weren't made I wouldn't have an Xbox 360.

Not playing either is just absurd. Playing them should be required if you own a 360.

I've played both. I prefer GoW over Halo even though I prefer FPS's over Third. Weird.

Played about 2 hours of Halo 2 multi-player on the original Xbox. Gears never seemed like my kind of game, not really into 3rd person shooters. Not to mention if I am going to shoot things in games, I am going to shoot people and not aliens.

Ha ha, at least you played. That's all that matter because only then can you state your honest opinion, and not what gamers and game community tells you.

Even though nearly every gamer and game community tells you, we will love it? Including this one?

Nope you are not the only one, but since they are the two highest rated exclusives on the console, you are doing yourself a disservice not trying them out.

Melanopterus
04-21-2010, 05:24 AM
I played like two levels or so in gears (long ago) and I used to play Halo... However I am not really a fan of either. I mean I don't hate them but they really are my cup of gravy. I'd only be willing to replay either at this point because they have offline co-op and my fiance and I are running out of games to play together

BooseyGirl
04-21-2010, 05:57 AM
No, actually. I have quite a few friends who have never played either Halo or Gears of War. It's not like it's a bad thing, not everyone plays the same games, just think of yourself as unique, that is until you decide to play them and go mainstream :)

I've played Gears 2, and a little of Halo 3 at a friend's house. Both series are horribly, horribly overrated in my opinion. Pretty much Avatar level overrated.

Madman55
04-21-2010, 07:38 PM
Gears is the only one that is appealing to me, though. I tried Halo on PC and hated it so since then I've strayed away from the entire Halo series. And with no job, I can't just go out and buy games whenever, so when I have money I'm either buying new sports games or cheap used games.

I have played both.
- Gears Of War, i could never really get into, but still i tried both 1 & 2.
- Halo, i used to love playing it until i got hooked on Rainbow Six, and i have payed 1,2 & 3. Not ODST yet (still?).

The only reason why i bought the xbox and not the ps3 is because of the halo series.

With regards to Halo.. You're not missing out on anything.

No you are not as over 60% of the world have never heard of the internet.. soo.... i bet around 85%-95% (http://x360a.com/forum/member.php?u=125303) of the world have not played one or either.


gaming world how ever maybe 15%(probably less) have not played it...

DarkBigone
04-22-2010, 05:57 AM
I'm not into shooters and I've played both...then again I just shot at whatever moved and thats it, so I still don't know who we were fighting or why 'cause I never gave a shit lol

04-22-2010, 06:15 AM
I get weird looks from people when I tell them I have an Xbox 360, but don't own Halo 3. I have it in my requests on Goozex, and am still waiting on a deal for it or Halo 3: ODST. Lol. I figure I'll give myself by the end of the summer to find a copy and get all the achievements before Reach comes out, as I'm afraid the majority of Halo 3 players will have migrated by then.

I've played Halo 1 & 2, and both Gears, not a fan of Halo but do enjoy Gears.

I haven't ever played Halo and I think I beat the first level on GoW and haven't played since. I just didn't like it. So there it sits, with 50 GS on my gamercard.

You aren't missing much.

Face it everyone, halo 3 single player isn't good. It sucks. halo 3 multiplayer, on the other hand, is awesome.
Gears of war single player is good, but its better with a buddy or online.

Dont worry about it bro. Buy games that you like, not that everyone else likes.

sleepydumbdude
04-24-2010, 05:09 PM
I played both but not until they were out for a long time. I rented Halo ODST and 3 after Waypoint to get the avatar stuff.
A friend bugged me about buying Gears 2. Playing with him is the only time I play. Both games are not my type of game.

Unterofficer
04-24-2010, 05:41 PM
Not playing either is just absurd. Playing them should be required if you own a 360.
Then Xbox wouldn't have so many players as there are now, as there are a lot of people who just hate either of the games (With there being more GoW-haters IMO.)

Anyway to topic. I have played both, and my signature should tell my opinnion about Gow. I still wonder what made me play GoW in the first place. Halo is good, but MP is little too fastpaced for me. Also I did play GoW2 once through, but as I only had a sixpack I couldn't play it second time on Insane.

Buck a Fuffaloe
04-24-2010, 05:47 PM
Tough to believe that an XBOX owner hasn't played either of these. Halo 3 sucked IMO and same with GoW 2 but I think you still should have played them both at some point.

Sgt Scyther
04-24-2010, 05:50 PM
I've played Halo. Never played Gears of War. I don't own either of them and it's probably going to stay that way. I have no real interest.

I'm surprised you haven't.

The first Halo has been out for years now, and the first Gears of War has been out for some time as well.

Yes, because hating two games on a console automatically means the entire console is terrible. What logic! :rolleyes:

Never said you had to like them. Just said that you needed to at least play them.

Never said you had to like them. Just said that you needed to at least play them.
Well apparently your logic is also off, as forcing you to do something that you don't like is the easiest way of making people hate you/your product. Would you go to cinema for movie that you like, if they forced you to watch a movie, or part of movie that you don't like first?

Subject A is looking for a console. He doesn't like shooters and prefers to play music games and RPG:s. Xbox forcing you to play Halo, or Gears would be a real downside for subject A, so he decides not to get a Xbox.

Subject B is looking a console for his children. He isn't interested about gaming at all and Xbox forces his kids to play games that are too mature to them, so subject B decides not to get a Xbox.

Subject C is looking for a home mediacenter and doesn't like gaming. Again Xbox forces him to play games so he decides not to get a Xbox.

Subject D hates Halo, or Gears with a passion and is looking for a console. Xbox forces you to play either, so he decides not get a Xbox.

Well, to be honest I played both but I didn't spend more than 2 hours each but I can't really say why. They just didn't convince me.
