My favorite game series has hit 19 million Copies sold and that's only 3 games on one console.
With The 4th game coming out next year, they are sure to
pass into the 20 million range. Making Gears of war the pinnacle 3rd person game.
Can the ps3 fans show a lil love?

Call of Duty sells better on the 360 alone, so by your logic, it's the pinnacle series on the 360. =]

Hell, Gran Turismo 5 sold better than any most 360 exclusives. I guess that makes it the fundamentally better game.

I didnt relize call of duty was 3rd person.

I didn't realize Gears of war was a racing game.

You're arguing that sales make the game the pinnacle, so GT 5 and CoD are more pinnacle-y than Gears =P

Show me Where I said this makes Gears of war the pinnacle game as I recall I said 3rd person.

With over 6 games on multiple consoles plus the shooting mechanic is was better in gears of war it kinda made a cover system the standerd for third person games. Gta before gears no cover After gears Cover is in GTA :p I love GTA though GOW: judgement and GTA5 both day one buys for me.

On the 360 alone GTA IV sold better than any of the Gears games..... Your logic is terrible.

Sure! Congrats to Epic on the series and its sales. I own all three games. Good on ya, Epic.

"Making Gears of war the pinnacle 3rd person game."

As self-appointed spokesman for the Sonymites, my kind words will end here. Because no. Definitely no.

Actually, with Mario Kart that's not too far off.

Of course it sold that many, with the Xbox 360 causing damages to the game disc through scratches/burnouts/cracks many people felt forced to repurchase the game and finish though they were probably angered by this and thus became PS3 owners.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 5:58:47 PM PST
Mario Kart is definitely the best racing game series ever.

Dude, calm down. Why do you troll every single pro-Xbox thread, and anti-PS3 thread? Gears is a kick-ass series and revolutionized the TPS for consoles. Someone likes it and is happy that it has sold so well. Sure, he did not need to bring in Sony fans but what would it hurt to agree that it is indeed a great series. Uncharted and God of War kicks butt, as does Halo and Gears. See that was easy.

RC Pro-AM with Twisted Metal 2 as the best car/racing/combat game. Then Mario Kart....Okay, Mario Kart is better than RC but damn does that game bring some great memories.

I love Halo. I just don't think much of Gears. To me it's just decent.

It's not just three games. It's gears 1, gears 2, gears 3, gears 1 pc, gears of war triple pack.

Well you need to realize that not everyone likes Uncharted. Gears was awesome, Gears 2 was a bit of a letdown but Gears 3 was really great and I had a blast from beginning to end.

I meant just the wii version, it single handedly sold over 30 million copies..... More than the entire gears franchise.

For the record I love gears, gaol, uncharted and Mario kart. I am strange that way.
