Halo. It is overrated and the Gears storyline is much better.
I think you're confused
SigmaLongshot posted...I would opt for Halo.

Halo Gears hasn't been great since the first one. The second one had TERRIBLE MP and a not so great campaign the 3rd one had better MP but it was forgettable and a good SP and judgment. Well that game was just bad all around.
I'd rather have Gears as I'm not really a fan of games that are 1st person with the exception of TES. And even still that allows a switch to 3rd person at will.

Halo has and probably always will be awful imo unless they take the series in a totally different direction
Crappy cartoony looking enemies, rubbish story, boring gameplay(especially the campaigns, ugh, awful)
Gears however, is pretty awesome, 1 and 3 are anyway
I love it, from 1st - Judgement..

Really surprised by the answers in this topic, I'd have thought Halo would have won this hands down, seems it's like 80/20 in Gears' favor.
"Exactly correct TC..."
I would take Gears, and drop Halo. Halo's getting a TV series and had a web series, plus multiple books. So it seems like there's quite a bit of it, while not nearly as much Gears. While Gears honestly doesn't have the greatest story, Halo isn't exactly cream of the crop either.
But Halo to me just isn't fun. Mainly because I don't prefer FPS's, but for me the gameplay just isn't there. Gears on the other hand keeps getting better and better (with more features being added like bagging and tagging or mantle kicking), while Halo for the most part stays the same (the main big differences in the recent games are armor abilites, they really don't change a whole lot of the core gameplay).
I also like a more character driven experience, where Halo you just play as red or blue spartan (Halo 4 lets you play as virtual spartans even). Gears has all the main characters playable, and even characters that weren't part of the stories (Alex Brand).
As a whole though, I like the more close quarters combat with the smaller maps (Gears with more than 10-12 people would pretty much ruin a lot of it) than the wide open maps that Halo (there's vehicles and whatnot plus tons of players so the maps had to be pretty big) has. But while both have practically the same loadout/weapon spawn systems (weapons laid out around the map, can only spawn with certain low-tier weapons), they're pretty much the same in that regard.
5 years ago? Halo.
