We've got another two anniversaries to celebrate today, and they're big ones!

The original Gears of War first released for Xbox 360 all the way back on November 7, 2006 (in North America), with today marking its 14th birthday. Gears of War 2 also released a couple of years later on November 7, 2008.

Of course, these two classics went on to spawn an entire franchise which has most recently seen the arrivals of Gears 5 and Gears Tactics, and the original game was even remastered in 2015 as an "Ultimate Edition".

To this day, Gears remains recognised as one of the most beloved Xbox franchises of all time, and the first Gears of War was ultimately one of the most critically-acclaimed titles of the entire Xbox 360 era.
