Gears of war is hands down my fav game of all time but thats just me. It capitalizes on everything a shooter needs. Plus some more stuff that makes it even better. And the friggin multiplayer is an unstoppable galestorm of awesomeness. To put it simply this games will be infinitely hard to top and even if halo 3 does beat it, and i doubt it will, gow 2 will destroy the competition all over again. This game takes everything that makes a shooter good and more than doubles the fun!
