I've only ever played Uncharted a little bit a friends house every now and then and Gears is easily my favourite franchise on the 360 this generation. But truly, the games aren't even comparable in the slightest besides the fact that they're third person shooters.
I personally enjoy Gears more but Uncharted is a fantastic game.
Well after playing and finishing both trilogies I can say I enjoyed Gears of War much more, so Gears is a little better, not 100% better, I did enjoy Uncharted as well. Also, this poll was destined to fail, this is a fanboy poll, not a which game is better poll, that would require game playing.
I'll take Uncharted 2 over anything Gears of War. Gears of War 2 was such a weak link for me that it drags the rest of the series down for me in this vs. match-up.
But I'll agree with others and say that the two are too different from each other to really goes against each other. As @Zleunamme said, this does promote console fanboyism even if that's not the intent.
Where's both and neither? I choose both. I like them both the same, pretty much. I think the second in both are the weakest, but I'd still consider Gears of War 2 to be superb, while Uncharted 2 is just nearly great. Also, I think I've made this same poll a few months ago.
Honestly like Gears a lot more. Sure, Uncharted has the storytelling and whatnot down but playing Gears with some friends is a TON of fun both in campaign or horde or even adversarial play. Uncharted starts to feel overly scripted at points. Hold the stick and press "X" to see Drake do amazing things. Where as Gears constantly tests your skill as a shooter player. In the end I can't help to think Uncharted is more flash than gameplay. I come to games for the gameplay.
I voted uncharted by a little but I've only played a little of the first 2 but what I played was excellent. I've played all 3 GoW and think they're great but I guess because I've only played what are some of the most publicized scenes from Uncharted 1 and 2 it seems more polished, but now I think I should have said gears, probably one of my favorite new franchises this generation.
Besides the point though they are two very different franchises which are extremely difficult to directly compare.
@mcderby4 They're comparable in not just they are 3rd person shooters but in that they are both seen as the Top exclusive of their console...
What? How is that a comparison? If that were true then you could compare Halo to Killzone solely based on the fact that they're first person shooters yet nothing alike.
A worthy comparison would be Metal Gear Solid to Splinter Cell.
I haven't played the first title in either franchise, I never finished Gears 2, and I really disliked Gears 3's story. I voted for Uncharted because it's what I value in games more.
However, Gears of War plays a bit better, has a more interesting universe, and offers much more variety.
