Which video game franchise dies first: Gears of War or Halo?
Halo and Gears of War were pioneer titles during the seventh generation of console gaming. Since then though they appear to be on a downturn in quality. Which one has the best chance to survive longer?
I am a huge fan of both series! As much as I hope "Halo" dies first, I have a sinking feeling that it will be "Gears of War..."
I was thinking that the series was going to end with the third title and Bungie saying that they were going to stop making the games, then 343 Industries came in with "Halo 4." The game was actually well done for it being by a different company.
Before the release of "Gears of War: Judgment," Epic Games's creative director Cliff Bleszinski (Cliffy B) left the company to take a break after working in the industry non-stop for seventeen years. After that, Epic's the director of production, Rod Fergusson, left to work on "Bioshock Infinite" with Irrational Games. Last I heard, he is still with the company.
With the main men known for the unique series, "Gears of War" will most likely end before "Halo." And to be honest, that thought actually makes me pretty sad..
That is my thought as well. Judgment really was a kick in the gut as far as typical GOW quality. I think 343 hit Halo with a needed shock in the 4th installment. That clear sign of one path going down and one going back up says Gears is in for it.
What made me upset the most about Judgment was the control scheme change. I loved the controls in 1-3, and the fact that they changed it, in my opinion, was their way of saying that they aren't about being truly original anymore...
That's what happens when team members leave and new ones come in. Inevitable the formula that made a game great shifts and it almost always gets worse. Look at what happen to Final Fantasy.
Why these two overhyped, generic franchise are so popular in the first place, I have no idea. But I'd have to say Halo, because Gears of War at least attempts to make you care about whats happening to its characters, where as Halo does not IMO.
