"Gears of War 3 released this week, and it has been receiving high praise from many critics in the industry. Almost everyone is saying this is the best game in the Gears franchise, and have praised Epic for showcasing the best that Xbox 360 has to offer. There’s no doubt that Gears of War has had a huge effect on shooters and should be mentioned among the top shooters of this generation (Halo, Call of Duty, Battlefield), but one reviewer in particular stated that “every third-person shooter from here on out will likely be compared to Gears of War 3.” To me, this basically says Gears 3 is the pinnacle of third-person shooters. I’m not sure I agree with this, but we want to hear from you."
