I loved Halo 2 and 3, they are some of my favorite gaming memories. However, Reach and Halo 4 killed the series for me. So i choose Gears of War as more important because i enjoyed every entry (except Judgement, because its not really a gears of war game).
A game not even released killed it for you? k. --- PSN/XBL/Steam: mcnichoj Proud Vita/3DS/Wii U owner. | Level 50 in Gears Judgement Demo, yes this needed to be in my sig because a thread wasn't enough
They're both important franchises for Xbox, but both need to find their feet.
Halo 4 had a solid MP experience but a weak campaign, and even though I didn't play the last Gears, judging by the reception it got, it could've been a lot better. These two franchises are what allow Xbox to strive, but now seem second rate compared to the other guys like COD and BF.
Halo 5 and the next Gears need to bring it. Period.
