      The main character from Gears was a felon on death row. The Spartans were genetically-modified badasses meant to fight a war.

      I can see why you would think so, but being a SPARTAN is one of the coolest things ever to me. Power armor, space travel, being literally the strongest weapon humanity has ever created... I love GOW, but becoming a COG is just not the same. Some are badass, but most just get mowed down. Even the name is demeaning, it's saying you're just another piece in the machine. Not a person, not a soldier, not an unstoppable force. Just a cog in the clock.

      Halo can only ever win if the spartans actually did something besides wear armor that makes them look gay. There just isn't enough sex and emotion in that game. And the humor is dry and terrible. Kids will never understand Gears until they get to be in college. Gears is dark, deep, full of pain and violence. Halo is for 10 year old pussies who like to spawn kill and use hacks. Let your balls drop, then let me know when you people can finally appreciate Gears. Until then, take your sorry whining ass off of here.

      @Alexander Lea Larson I have never heard a more idiotic statement in my entire life. So what if there isn't enough sex in the game?! And dry and terrible humor? Last time I checked there was NO humor in GOW. Halo is about saving the whole human race. GOW is about "saving" some sort of mining colony from it's native inhabitants. Play video games when you actually figure out Halo's storyline.

      @Alexandra Lea Larsen Who cares about the looks of armor. It gives you a shield, and you as a human are genetically modified to smarter, stronger, faster, etc. Also, last time I checked, why does a shooter game need comedy? Both are full of darkness, pain and violence. Cogs get mowed down and have a demeaning name. Spartans have a bad ass name and wouldn't even have to worry about being "spawn killed," because it would be real life. Everybody would have the mental capacity to not shoot their team mates, and multiplayer wouldn't exist. Ten year-old children wouldn't be fighting in a war; their training would be progressing until they are eighteen or so. Everybody is on the same team (United Nations Space Command), and there would be an airsoft equivalent used for training, not real guns.

      Also most people won't realise the horrific process to become a spartan. You are kidnapped from your parents and flash-cloned. They then send the clone back to your parents where it dies within a few weeks, while you are put through gruelling tests and processes, of which few survive and most that do are horribly disfigured. This question assumes that you do survive and become a healthy spartan, but you'd still lose all of your friends and family, and be turned into a mindless machine which only wants to follow orders. TBF, I haven't played either series so I don't know what the process is to become a Cog, but considering how human they look and act, I imagine it's a damn sight better.

      Greek Spartans were easily killed. They thought they were tough, so it would be common to see their bare chests ripped open in one hit. The Spartans of 2525 were able to withstand falling out of a ship in orbit and hitting the ground at terminal velocity.Difference much?

      What are you talking about "pussy astronaut with lasers" Halo spartans had to go through genetic modification and experimentation to become badasses that run straight into battle. plus most of the weapons in halo aren't even lasers. They fire actual bullets. Of course there are the alien weapons but even they don't technically fire lasers, it is either super-heated plasma or hardlight. And the question clearly says "Halo." So I am sorry buddy but no. I'm not hating on GoW either.

      @rjsjvsfkrw He was talking about the videogame. Spartans have to go through extensive genetic modification to be as awesome as they are, and then train to learn how to use their uber-bodies to the extent of their greatness. A lot of the time the genetic modification killed them, which is what That ShawnGuy is referring to.

    While a Spartan would win in a fight, lets not forget that Spartans undergo military training from age 6-ish and never have real fun that other children do. Also many have various psychological issues as a result of their training/service and half of the Spartans died or became crippled before reaching military service. And lets pretend you're so bad-ass at your respective field that your particular war ends: A Cog Gear who is simply a well trained infantry unit can hang up their gun and resume a normal life but as a war hero while the indoctrinated Spartans will always be soldiers stuck in the military doing fuck all.

    SPARTAN: a super soldier with lightning-fast reflexes, agility, and insane strength while dressed in humanity's most technologically advanced armor. COG: a beefy soldier who has been forced to fight without a navy, decent supplies, and top-tier weaponry for over a decade. (Is also hated by non-soldiers) I love both games, but being a SPARTAN would be where it's at.
