It's been a long time since we received any kind of news regarding Microsoft and Black Tusk's Gears of War 4. A release date for the Xbox One is sure to be very far away, but any kind of news or a trailer would tie us over for a long time. When are we to hear from them again? Halo 5 on the other hand is granting its players a hands on experience with its Beta at the moment. But which game is the more popular Xbox One title?!
Halo has been with us since 2001, whereas Gears of War was released in 2006. That's an additional 5 years of loving, and Halo is by far the more recognisable franchise. But, as always, I'm fascinated by the fan base of games and would love to know if Gears of War is in fact more popular! Well, let's see!
Gears of War 4 vs Halo 5 on Xbox One!
Personally, I've spent far more time with the Gears of War series over the years. There was something about that series' multiplayer that just had me addicted. Myself and my friends were constantly replaying the campaigns together. Don't get me wrong, I adore Halo too, I find myself in the middle of replaying the campaigns on the Halo: Master Chief Collection at the moment and they are truly extraordinary titles.
But for some reason, I was always so drawn to Gears of War. It was the first game I ever bought for the Xbox 360 and my first introduction to the NextGen of consoles. I was simply blown away by everything. The characters, the music, the insane violence. It was incredible, I honestly can't wait for Gears of War 4's release date!
The conclusion of the trilogy is one of the best games that ever graced the Xbox 360. It was unfortunate that Gears of War: Judgement didn't live up to my expectations. But let's face it, once Rod Fergusson left, Gears lost a certain indescribable spark. Thus, that's why he's leading the time for Gears of War 4 at Black Tusk and I hope he can raise the bar.
Fergusson stated that he didn't hold anything back for Gears of War 3. He saw it as a trilogy and was prepared to go out with a serious bang. I mean, the level of content in Gears of War 3 was remarkable. How is he possibly going to be able to improve upon it? Want to hear how he's betraying us?

With regards to Halo 5: Guardians, we know so much more. We realise that 343 Industries want to ensure that this game is as great as they can make it. The Halo 5 multiplayer beta is still running at the moment, and it's incredible to go home and get to play more and more of it every night for more than another week!
The only thing left is the storyline. Can it live up to our expectations and give us an interesting enough premise with Agent Carter on Master Chief's heels? Let's hope so! But now comes the voting! Halo 5: Guardians, or Gears of War 4! Which do you pick?!
