Story winner for Gears of War 3 vs. Uncharted 3

Not that many people have the option to buy both Gears of War 3 and Uncharted 3, thanks to GoW 3 being an exclusive for Xbox 360 and U3 only for the PS3. If you’re like most people and are tied to just one games console, then it’s not that hard of a choice as both games are going to be extremely good and worth buying.

Some people still want to compare the stories and graphics of Gears of War 3 (a release date of September 20), and Uncharted 3 (release of November 2). Without getting into the graphics, let’s look at the stories for both of these franchises.

One author on Velocity Gamer feels that GoW has a lot better story lines, and explains, in their blog post here, that the shooting mechanics are better in Gears while the graphics are better in Uncharted, but how did they get to the story conclusion?

They found that the games are pretty even when it comes to acting, even though Gears has a lot of cursing, which is seen as justified when you’re battling a monstrous enemy. We’ll have to agree that “less” can be a lot more, and that the Gears of War 3 trailer said more in the quiet moments like when Dom lays back with his eyes closed ready to give up, and then Marcus saves him as if to say get up and fight, all without a word being said. If the full game continues with this approach it will mean a lot with how the feelings of the game are passed on. Most players will already prefer the stories of their favorite game, and as such will have a favorite in Gears of War or Uncharted.

Other opinions we’ve heard include feelings that Uncharted 3 mainly has just graphics going for it, and the franchise is one of the most overrated. Which game do you think will have the better story, Gears of War 3 or Uncharted 3?

Most people do not buy shooters for story line.  However GOW 3 will be very interesting on how it end.  UC will be good as well.  I am a online player and Horde 2.0 and the other gametypes online is what has and will make this game great for 2 years to come.  Nothing this year will compare to Skyrim this year as far as story goes.  If you are buying a game for a story go Skyrim with hundreds of hours of play to come!

I have both systems and they are both great games, but I think Gears of war has a better story. The acting and voice works. They both have there big moments like the speech at the beginning of gears of war 2.
Graphics: Gears of War, the snow level in uncharted is the best looking in the game.wile in gears every level looks good.
This is just my opinion.

Are you freaking retarded!? Uncharted is highly underrated as it is! And shooting mechanics are equal between the games. And story!? Really!? Gears of War (1-3): Humans are at war with aliens. I think I’ve heard that before… >.> Uncharted: Finding legendary treasures, plot twists. Surprising creatures which don’t turn out completely farfetched in the end. You are a retarded 360/Gears Fanboy

wow just wow lol.  I have both and the facial animation and voice acting is much better in uncharted.  The normal talking in the background while just fighting and explore is significantly better in Uncharted.  The shooting mechanics i don’t see a clear winner the only bonus gears has in its combat is the chainsaw, but movement between cover is superior in uncharted.  There’s a reason why it scored so high you idiots.  As for story I stick with ign’s comment it has possibly the perfect story.  I don’t remember gears of war taking home over 50 game of the… Read more »

I don’t know why you are comparing stories of two games that are not out… It would make sense if you compared Gears 2 and uncharted 2.

As far as me personally, I have to go with Uncharted.  Love the how the story, cinematics, and gameplay all mix together quite fluidly.  I can’t really speak for Gears myself, unfortunately none of the friends I know who own 360’s are fans.  They, like myself, are PC gamer’s though, so that could be a contributing factor.

Uncharted all the way! The story, the gameplay and the graphics match up perfectly.

I have to luxury of both consoles. I played the beta for GOW3, and going by that, I’d say it rules supreme in the graphics department. However, the story thoughout the series is just plain tacky. Maybe it’s due to the genre of the game, but in terms of story,, Final Fantasy 7 it isn’t. Uncharted may not have the most compelling story either, but it’s certainly much better than the dirty dish-water diharia that we are forced to endure whilst playing gears. Either way both games are great fun to play, and awesome to look at. Makes you think,… Read more »
