I'm thinking Halo games gave the 360 a huge boost and kept it from going out of business. If it weren't for Halo and all it's sales to drive momentum we might not have an XB1. Anyone else feel the same?

Halo and Gears are what made the Xbox brand popular imo.

Don't matter either way now.

I don't think Gears was that popular. I knew a lot of people with xbox 360. A couple had GoW but they never talked about it and played the campaign maybe once. I'm not saying it's a bad game I just was never around the people who went gaga over it. Shame the studio behind it left. And all that talk about black tusk developing a new IP and then all that happens is that they take over GoW.

I love my 360, have played tons of games on it, and still have games to play, but I haven't played a single Halo or Gears game.
Fanboys (of all stripes) are sad, pathetic, souls. You know who you are.

The first two games were extremely popular. I know I bought my 360 just to play those, Mass Effect and Tales of Vesperia.

It might just be my bias against it. I just think it looks ridiculous, It's like they gave a bunch of bodybuilders guns
