This episode features Sony's God of War and Microsoft's Gears of War. We'll be looking at three categories in this episode -- Gore, Character, and the Series. The winner in each is decided based on your votes. Voting will close Friday, April 5th at Midnight PT.

TPS vs. Hack&Slash

Apples to Potatoes

Mindless tiresome run and gun pumped out every year like Call of Doody vs a Sony masterpiece.

You can say the exact same thing about GOW. In fact More GOW games have been released than Gears of War games.

Nonetheless the comparison is pointless, God Of War is a hack and slash, Gears of War is a shooter. There to entirely different games that have nothing in common other than the same acronym.

Actually no you can't. God of war is on 3 different platforms, Gears is on 1.

BattleAxe1812d ago

God of War is a far better series. I've owned Gears 1 & 2 since last spring and I haven't found them interesting enough to finish, but I'm going to try to force myself to finish them soon mainly just for the achievements.

HammadTheBeast1812d ago

But agreeing that both are great doesn't get IGN any hits.

@ BattleAxe

How is it justifiable to label a game as uninteresting, when playing it 6 years after its release? Also, I find it somewhat odd that you would start Gears of War 2's campaign, after:
1) Not completing the preceding game.
2) After finding the preceding game uninteresting.

Third person cover shooter and a Action adventure hack and slash game. Both highly rated and both highly different.

So the question is which one do you feel like playing?

Yeah, Ign's bored. So lets start an all out massive internet flame war.

I'd definitely pick GoW. Though, GoW's nothing short of amazing. ;D

Sharius1812d ago (Edited 1812d ago )

no, you are wrong, GoW is the best, why bother to compare between GoW and GoW while everyone agree that GoW better than GoW in every aspet

StrongMan1812d ago

Terrible comparison to me but I choose God of War.

Kingdom Come1812d ago

*Sigh* What a surprise...

fsfsxii1812d ago

Generic muscled dudes with guns. No thanks, i pick God of War

KaBaW1812d ago

Just wondering.. what are some games that have 'generic' characters like Gears?

Kingdom Come1812d ago

Generic Characters? Let me guess, you love Killzone though...
