"'Casual games' are something the 'Game Industry' invented to explain away the Wii success instead of actually listening or looking at what Nintendo did. There is no 'casual strategy' from Nintendo. 'Accessible strategy', yes, but ‘casual gamers’ is just the 'Game Industry''s polite way of saying what they feel: 'retarded gamers'."

Gears.... any MGS is really boring...



By me:

Made with Blender + LuxRender
"Since you can´t understand ... there is no point to taking you seriously."

gears of war. I like playing, not watching.



GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.

Why are you comparing a recent game to one which was released almost 2 years ago?

my $MSG4_RESULT = 'happy';
If (! $MGS4 > $GOW) {
$MGS4_RESULT = 'sad';
}
print "MGS4 makes me " . $MGS4_RESULT;



Check out my games for sale eBay and Toycatacomb

I am no writer but I try

And

Finally

I am watching you!

why would you compare a shooter to a movie? Gears vs. Resistance is a much better comparison since both are shooters.

either way my answer is gears.

 on my youtube account somebody said "gears pwns the hell out of mgs4..have fun installing a game to watch a movie"



I would have to say Gears but I hate them both, I just hate gears less.

Cliffy B can still make games for me... but Kojima won't.



Tease.

@Deon,

Please don't use all caps in your thread titles, normal use of capitalization will do just fine.

 

 ok...so uhhh r u gonna pick a game or what?

 

Well if you insist I personally enjoyed MGS4 more. 

I thought the cover system was the best part of Gears even though it took some getting used to. The storyline was somewhat bland and really never interested me at all.  But my biggest gripe was the color pallete, the game just has far too many shades of gray and brown.

MGS4 suffered from a bland color pallete as well in several stages but it didn't fall short in the story department and delivered what fans have come to expect(ie demand) of the series, with that said there were some rather longwinded cutscenes but somehow they were still interesting enough to be worth watching, despite their length.  In terms of gameplay I wasn't blown away by MGS4 as it had a few problems in responsiveness, I also had a problem with the game forcing me from prone to crouch when I was near a wall which of course ruins your cammo % and is extremely annoying.  Also the shooting controls I thought were terrible, which wouldn't be a problem if you truly could sneak your way through the game but some situations require it.

Note that I'm focusing on the problems with the games, there are plenty of positives for each game I'm just focusing on what I didn't like since its probably a shorter and more interesting list.

Both games have their flaws but both are solid titles in their own right.  For my taste I just preferred MGS4 more but if I'm being honest I would have enjoyed MGS4 even more if it had just been a 15 hour movie.  But then I'm not a fan of the series so thats probably just me.

edit: Actually thats not entirely true, I've played the previous MGS games so I guess technically I could be considered a fan... I'm just a very undevoted fan.

 lol. If I was Kojima I'd be really offended if I read this on some blog.



MGS4- I also like playing games, not watching.
