Gearbox: Gears, CoD, Halo are "Shades of Brown"

SPOnG: "It's been in development for over a decade, and now - finally - Duke Nukem Forever is going to be released this May. But the Duke's been a away a long time - is he still relevant in today's world of Call of Duty and Gears of War? Gearbox's Vice President of Marketing, Steve Gibson, believes that this is actually "the perfect time to release Duke Nukem Forever."

"If you look at what the leading games are - Gears of War, Call of Duty, Halo - they’re just… I dunno… shades of brown, I guess you could say," Gibson told SPOnG in an exclusive interview to be published later today."

halo has more color than god damn rainbow

I think it was a figure of speech

ChrisW2839d ago

It's either a figure of speech or the author is clinically color blind to shades of brown. Hmmm... I wonder what color he perceives his stools to be.

If Halo isn't one thing it isn't brown. In fact, Halo is probably the most BRIGHTEST FPS out there.

looks like this quote went over your head.

I think he meant to say Killzone also sometimes referred to as Brownzone...not by me though so please don't hurt me, but he knows that the wrath of those we do not speak of is too great to withstand. #Fearthewrathoffanboys
So he decided to zero in on Halo fanboys because even though they are numerous, they just couldn't care less about what some developer says about their game.
You won't get too many "their game is stupid anyway"
"halo >>> borderlands"
"trying to ride on halo's coattails"

Besides all that, Halo has been made fun of for being the Power Rangers of fps' because of its vibrant use of colour, from purple planes and bullets to red spartans, blue elites and green protagonists. If there is one colour that is lacking in this series it's brown
Gears of War on the other hand is pretty spot

What the hell? Are people really that stupid? He's not talking about how colorful the actual gameplay is, he's saying they're boring and uninspired they are, how generic they've become.

FailOverHero2839d ago

Thats why he calls them the leaders huh? Gears couldn't be more different from CoD if it tried! Halo and CoD on the other hand, change just about everything from the story set in space to the open world, fictional guns, jetpacks, aliens, superhumans, AI and vehicle combat and just maybe you'll get CoD.../s

gman_2972839d ago

And they're all still very generic, aren't they? Gears is just a space marine doing nothing but shooting. Halo is just a space marine doing nothing but shooting in first person. Call of Duty is just a marine doing nothing but shooting in first person.

They all sound the same, don't they?
