    The second Gears of War tournament will be finished at the end of this month, and I think I'll probably shelve my game after that. It's had a good run, rarely leaving my 360 and leaving the rest of the games just gathering dust. I think many people are in the same scenario and considering moving on to another title..

    With that in mind, what do you think your next big game will be?

    I'll play Halo3 for a bit then hopefully COD4 but will still play Gears as long as you guys are on. Anyway, kop, lee and codehead are still going for Seriously....

    But to be honest I can't see these lasting more than 3 months - GoW is almost a year old and I'm still hooked. I also can't see me playing any other game for 13 hours straight finishing at 5:30 in the morning, which I've done a couple of times with Gears.

    I must say Spinke that it was your (very well organised and enjoyable) 2nd tournament that rescued Gears for me....I really had tired of the same old, meaningless, casual games that we played every weekend, all weekend....I'm now balancing playing the tourney Gears with some Ranked Gears as well (perhaps in 12 months time I might have Seriously), and spending more time playing Vegas.

    My next game purchase will be COD4 (despite my loathing of all things COD4 beta).....I don't get chance to buy many games, so have got this on pre-order so that I don't talk myself out of it when it does get released. Hopefully there'll be some fellow AVF'ers who also pick up this title...

    I'm not too bothered by Halo3, so I'll mainly be playing COD4, Vegas, and some Gears when the new games are released.

    Who knows, we might even extend our current circle of 'Friends' when these new games are released :thumbsup:

    I'm not sick of gears yet.
    I'll be buying Halo 3 for the campaign (alone and co-op) and if i can get into the multiplayer then that may take over from gears.
    I'll deffo be getting UT3 when it's out but that's a while away yet.
    I doubt i'll actually buy COD4 but if i get into the beta that may convince me to get it.

    Orange box is also one i'll be getting, team fortress may surprise me and get some serious play online but i'm mainly getting it for half life.

    Also - portal is supposedly very short

    I'm semi-bored of Gears, but I like the lobby system and the social apect of the game still. It'll be hard for any of the new games on the horizon to match it in that respect.

    I'll probably give all of the games listed a go. My only concern is with Halo, it's online community has quite a bad rep in terms of glitching, cheating, trash talk and general skullduggery but I guess time will tell...

    I'll be giving halo3 a go, but just can't see it being as good as gears multiplayer. UT3 is gonna be wicked, & may be the game that makes me buy a PS3.....sorry, I'll go & wash my mouth out now.:(
    Having said this, if halo grabs me or if gears remains as entertaining (would need a new tournament though Spinke:thumbsup:) I'll no doubt hold out for the UT3 360 version.
    BTW zzeb & virtual, have you seen that the flak cannon is back.....luvverly.:clap:

    UT3 might be the game to drag me off GoW, but I think I'll still be playing Gears when they switch off LIVE for the 360.

    I'll probably pick up Halo3, but doubt I'll get into the multiplayer.

    COD doesn't do anything for me.

    GOW made me buy the 360 in the first place, and I still haven't seen anything else to compete with it. I enjoy playing Bioshock, and occasionally RV6, but I think GOW will keep me going until GOW 2 :thumbsup:

    I'll probably give Halo 3 a shot, but not really that bothered. I think UT3 looks a better bet.

    I think there's a common thread developing here that gow is still the most enjoyable game out there and will be for a while,even though microsoft are still trying to mess it up with updates and the like.I'll still be getting killed first on gears for a long time to come

    Probably Halo3 for me, although that depends on it being NTSC/J region-free(I'm hopeful:)) Probably looking forward to the 4 player co-op mode more than anything although of course I'll be trying to get into the multiplayer also.

    Doubt any of the new games will grab me like GoW has online & you can be certain to still find me in the GoW dead room for many months to come;)

    Good to see this poll BTW Spinke, was planning on doing something similar myself to see what everyone will be buying for multiplayer. Just need one for the racers now, Sega Rally/ PGR4 etc.;)

    It's more out of interest for the next tournament :D, similar to the Racing Championship poll :) (which I want more votes for, gogo!).

    I chose other because all I can see myself playing in the near future is TF2 and Halo 3 and the poll wont let me vote twice! I tell you I'm going to be a virtual person and exist only online come October and November.
