i need something to kill some time. maybe fable 3. I figure i might as well delve into the best the 360 has to offer as far as exclusives considering i never played any of these much.

Halo 3
Not changing sig until Half Life 2: Episode 3 comes out

Either one has a good campaign. If you're going to go it solo I would recommend Reach. If you're going to go two player co-op either one is good, but I would go with Gears.

For 3 or 4 player co-op only Halo can do that in campaign. But both Gears and Halo have big group co-op, Gears has Horde mode and Halo has Firefight. Both of those are good.

Halo has better competitive multiplayer too, if that's your thing.

Now it may sound like I'm totally all about Halo, it's pretty good. But I actually like Gears' campaign more. But only if you're playing it with someone else.

Easily Halo Reach. Gears have better graphic, but Halo is just way more fun & also way much more contents.

Halo 3
Halo fans are like the Zerg. They'll attack in infinite numbers, and will attack anything that is not their own kind.

Fully agreed. And Gears' multiplayer is broken.

Halo Reach because bungie will just boot you for a day if you make someone rage and on Gears2 when you hit lvl 50 your rank gets reset and Epic cust support cant tell you why..
Stay Brutal......

Both great games, i just prefer Reaches multiplayer variety
If you don't like Giantbomb then I don't like you, isn't that right Zach?

I recommend Reach, seeing as how Gears 3 is around the corner which will invalidate most reasons for Gears 2 unless you want to catch up on the plotline or you wanna add another game to the co-op library as Gears 2 does have bot support for MP
