I'm just interested. My guess is that the majority will vote :

Halo

GoW

Borderlands

I hope all those who take part have played at least one game from each series so they have apt comparison.

These are the top 3 FPS I've enjoyed, so that's my reason for 'vs-ing' them! I know they're not exactly very similar, especially Borderlands, but I'm new(ish) to FPS so just humour me, ok! XD

Please explain your reason too! I love hearing why people are passionate about something!

Also, NO ARGUING! We all have different tastes - that is to be embraced and not shamed. It's what makes us unique!

My answer:

1st: Borderlands

Reason - Upgrades, interesting characters. Interesting environment. I love the art style too. Also, there are safe areas where you can shop and sell. Character customisation. Humour.

2nd: Gears of War

Reason - the environment is pretty interesting and not copy-paste. The characters are likable.

3rd: Halo

Reason - I did enjoy the game, but it was legit just "Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!" All the way through. It didn't have as much depth as the others.

Like I said, these are just the opinions of one human out of billions, so don't takes them too seriously. Feel free to debate my reasons (respectfully), as I'm open to changing my mind about things! I can't wait to see your votes/reasons! :) <3

EDIT: I just realised GoW isn't a FPS (duh!

1. Borderlands - the series is one of my all time favorites, especially BL2. Everything from the gameplay, the loot system, graphics, characters I love.

2. Halo - I only played through the first game, and a little bit of the second, never even played the multiplayer honestly. Only reason it's my 2nd is because I never played GoW. >.>

I would cut Borderlands from the selection since it's more RPG/FPS than just an FPS. Halo and Gears of War are better equated to CoD or Medal of Honor.

#1 Borderlands:  Gun Porn, you can say allot more about it but you don't need to.

 

#2 Halo: Badass lead, good gameplay, fun multiplayer....  although it has slipped somewhat.

 

I haven't played Gears of War yet so I can't really say.

IKR? I love Borderlands, the whole feel of it!

I know, that's why I said "just humour me" - I know they're vastly different but I haven't played many FPS games, I just wanted to compare these three for whatever reason! XD I'm playing GoW now with a friend and it just got me thinking. No malice. :) <3

If you like Halo, I highly suggest you play GoW, I'm only 1/2 way through it atm but I'm enjoying it more than Halo tbh! It's less 'space-y' but has more... substance? Ah, I don't know the word! XD <3

I do intend to play the remaster on PC.

 

More compact maybe?

Borderlands hands down the best of all time. So damn funny and the range of guns is too fun to ignore. Everything else is uncivilized.

#1 would be Halo for me. Pretty much from Halo : Reach and back. It was a large part of my gaming experience growing up. I remember when I first played Halo 1 at a friends house, and when halo 2 was coming out we played the 1st for weeks on end to "prepare" for the next one. I remember when halo 3 came out, me and my buddy both got it the day it came out and finished the campaign on legendary 3 minutes before it hit midnight that day. I enjoyed the aspect of being a standard soldier and seeing the crumbling city in ODST. The strategy version of Halo Wars, and felt like Halo Reach was a perfect way to finish off the franchise, as a sort of final farewell. Anything after, well it becomes a different story I won't talk about here.

 

#2 was Gears of War. Chainsaw guns and killing a monstrous horde with grit and explosives. Did exactly what I wanted to do. And once again, had my buddy to carve a bloody path through it. Didn't overly care about 3 when we blew through it for spoiler reasons. And the... what was it called? Vengence? The one that came out after 3. It was just meh, been there and done that.

 

#3 is Borderlands. I could live without it. Seemed a bit too "try hard" to me, but that was probably part of its attempted humor. Wasn't a big fan of the art style, but that's just me. Story seems a bit convoluted without any good way to deepen it besides a handful of quests to find the voice recorders. Had the general "oh, you need to do everything for everyone and save the world single handedly without gratitude because reasons" approach. And I did all the side missions (I like to do that) so it ended up just eating time instead of making things feel worth while. And THAT ending. 

I don't care if it was setting up the story for the sequel. It didn't feel like it then. I know sometimes a journey is better than the destination, but the destination here ended up being crap. The journey was like traveling down a toilet. It seemed like crap the whole way and ended in a large pile of crap.

I hated it. My friend who played through it with me hated it more. When the 2nd came out, we forced ourselves to play through that one and hated the ending in it as well. It just wasn't for us I suppose. It's certainly not the WORST game I've ever played, far from it. But I'd recommend plenty of other games before it. But that's just my current thoughts on it.

I like Halo the best. Talking about CE-3 here (maybe even lolReach). The core of why I love it so much is because of the great story that made for great campaigns, the oh so good competitive multiplayer, the best soundtrack of a thing ever! And of course the Master Chief himself. Such a simple protagonist but, totally badass. If back then you wanted a skill based shooter that was modernizing shooters themselves, it was Halo. Two men walk in and the better player left, that was Halo. Will never have a MP mode that grabs my attention like Bungie Halo did. Too bad the MCC sucked.

And here we come, to 343 Halo. Well, 343 only has one more game left to go and they finish the second trilogy and leave Master Chief alone right? Right? Godawful.

Gears doesnt excite me too much but, voted for that one second by default. It is cool but, just did the campaigns coop and the first one was one of the first games for my 360 that let me wondering about the possibilities of the system. Still havent done Judgement.

Borderlands whatever. Good games but, dont have much to say. Whenever I played them it was coop only (will not play them by myself) and I just went on autopilot. My brother likes them much more. Still havent done the Pre Sequel.

1st: Borderlands 1 and 2. BL1 for it's gore, dismemberment and nice death animations (too bad they are not in BL2). Borderlands 2 (modded) for better graphics, better loot, high replaybility, bigger world, dark humor, interesting Chars with personality, a nice to hate Villain, having fun farming alone or with friends.

 

2nd: Halo (especially Halo 1 and Halo 2). Great new IP back then and Halo 2 is one ofthe best Co-Op experience ever had (on Legendary).

Borderlands is #1 without question. I picked Halo as my second favorite mainly due to the fact that it was the whole thing that got me started on shooters, although honestly I enjoy Gears much more at this point. Mainly because I've played far too much Halo, and Gears of War has multiplayer bots.

 

I would cut Borderlands from the selection since it's more RPG/FPS than just an FPS. Halo and Gears of War are better equated to CoD or Medal of Honor.

 

Why? All the titles play rather diffrently than each other, with Halo being the only true FPS on the list. Gears has a much greater emphasis on cover and isn't even in first-person, and Borderlands is a mix of RPG and FPS as you said.
