Excuse me?? I didn't personally attack anybody. Your post is the perfect example of a starting a flame war. The button layout is terrible on the 360. I get in first place almost every game, but that doesn't mean that I can't think the controls are trash.

Epic tried to make the game 'Sandbox friendly' by not using a lot of buttons. It turns out to be extremely frustrating, and I haven't read a review that didn't mention the terrible control scheme. I'm not a CoD fanboy - but I will say that Infinity Ward mastered FPS controls w/consoles on CoD2. Gears of War butchered.
I never said you did. And yeah...I guess my post could be an example of a flame war if one would take it the wrong way. I guess its one of those that could go in either direction.

I think the button layout is fine on the 360. Im not a controller type of person though. I could care less of ones skill at a game, but I never stated that you could or coudlnt say/think the controls are trash. Every person is different.

To say that CoD4 will "own" GoW, is a total personal preference. Stating which does not make it true.

I'm getting tired of this preference crap. Everyone is too politically correct these days. Grow some balls and stand for something. If you compare every aspect of CoD4 to Gears of War, you'll see that the only thing Gears of War wins is Blood and Gore.

Gears of War FTL!! Any game that makes 'Stick to the Wall', 'Run', and 'Jump' all the same button will suck. Don't believe me?/? bUy this game....

Besides, CoD4 coming out, and it's going to smoke gears of war.
WTF! Gears Of War is an awesome game! (on the 360) And to compare GOW to COD4 is just plain stupid because one is a 3rd person shooter and the other is a 1st person shooter!

So your opinion is null & void, sorry!

And graphics, and weapons, and story line, and multiplayer. The list probably goes on. Like the other guy said, you cant compare CoD4 to GoW. There is just to much of a difference. Sure they are both great games, but you cant compare a first person shooter to a third person. At least, not in the way you are trying to.
