    Only one of these guys actually survived free-falling from space. Do you honestly think Shepherd could take on multiple Scarabs with only a rifle and a few grenades? This battle goes to the Chief. Hands down.

    I'll admit a minute or so of thinking, but finally gone for Shepard. With all due respect to the Chief ( and that means MUCH respect) and all the strong arguments in favor of him winning, I believe Shepard (especially as Vanguard, a Biotic, hell even a Soldier with Adrenaline Rush) would be able to defeat him on one-on-one (tough it would be a ery close call, maybe even a draw with both of them killed). Shepard fought plenty of tough fighters with shields during his carreer and has also been show to have lightning reflexs during his fight with Kai Leng. He seems to me equally proficient with weapon as the Chief and can pack a whopping punch with his fists ( as a certain 9 foot ton-weigt yagh can agree), let alone his omni-blade. He also know how to use his environment and if anything happens, he could always Renegade-interrupt the chief ;) That been said, anybody who don't respect the Chief for all his badassery needs to die from Grunts farting)

    if it was a pure badassery contest Master Chief wins hands down, no argument there. but i chose Commander Shepard for the sole reason that he can gather, command and earn the complete trust of the must badass bunch of teamates ever: Garrus of course, Wrex, Thane, Jack, Tali and so on.
  • nintendo365 - November 2, 2012 8:28 p.m.

    THE only argument we need for Master Chief to win: Shepard has died once before, Chief hasnt. PERIOD. He died once, what chance does he have against a literal one man army? Chief would punch his face in, literally- Hes genetically engineered to be a badass. GR, make the next one a crew vs crew fight. Borderlands 1 Vault Hunters vs the team from Bulletstorm. That would be an epic battle.

    Shepard will win because his saga is multiplat while Master Chief is exclusive to the Xbox 360. I voted for Chief, because its obvious, even with biotics, that chief fights more on his own then Shepard and in a one on one fight, Shepard would get his ass kicked.
  • Aarononymous - November 2, 2012 7:36 p.m.

    "Chief isn’t the strongest or most crafty hero, and he isn’t particularly charismatic or intelligent or playful." According to Halo lore, this is all compared to other SPARTANS. Compared to us average schmucks he is a super-strong, crafty, charismatic genius.

    What is this crap, we all know as soon as master chief gets close to commander shepard (within a half mile) his head will explode due to the sheer epicness of the orchestrated music accompanying the chief. Also considering Master chief has fallen from space to earth, and just got back up and was like whatever, singlehanded gave the humans exactly what they needed to win the war with the covenant, has the restraint not to try to be sexual with cortana(shepard would have tried to hit that, and I know the chief doesn't have a sex drive, but I had to make that sad little joke), and is genetically altered superhuman with shielded armor. People are obviously voting for favorite, rather than who would actually win.
  • BackwaterRifle - November 2, 2012 7:25 p.m.

    Basically what I'm getting at is, you give shepard an advantage such as an assault rifle, while chief only has his fists, and chief still wins most of the time.

    Lmfaooooo at the sex drive!!!

    My commander shepherd is my all-time favorite hero, so he got my vote, but damn why did he have to be paired against the Chief. Chief's awesome too (and has an interesting story arc if you pay attention to the books).
  • Soulhunter - November 2, 2012 6:38 p.m.

    If you want to bring the team aspect in, pre Halo and Reach MC is the leader of a team of 33 MJOLNIR Armored Spartans. So if we go to team vs team, MC has it hands down. One on One, Chief has reflexes 300% faster than a normal human, if Shepard goes under cover and as much as shows the tip of his/her head, boom head gone. MC was trained from the age of 6, Shepard was probably still playing with his equivalent of legos at that age. Add in vehicles, one shot of a Scorpion tank and any vehicles that the ME universe has would get destroyed. This isn't even a fair fight.
  • kenjionigod - November 2, 2012 6:52 p.m.

    Dude, what? Shepard's team can easily take out a group of a group of Spartans. Team vs Team, they'd lose. Even if what you say is true about Master Chief, it's irrelevant. He doesn't move that fast in the game, plus Shepard can have the same thing. Times seems to slow down, because his/her reflexes are that fast. Vehicles? Sorry but the human tech in halo is not nearly as good at the stuff in MAss Effect. A hammerhead would run circles around a slow Scorpion Tank.

    This is a hard choice. I went for Master Chief, however it was a hard choice. I have played both series and loved both of them. However I chose Master Chief because I like the Halo series just a little bit more.
  • KentoOfHardrock - November 2, 2012 5:34 p.m.

    If you're voting for Shephard, you might be an idiot. The MC wins this hands down. Stronger, faster, Cortana makes him smarter. I mean, the MC could sprint at Shepard and it would be over. A 7 foot tall, 1 ton, genetically enhanced, armor wearing, super human, against a dude with some neural implants. C'mon guys.
  • SentientSquidMachine - November 3, 2012 9 a.m.

    Singularity...that is all.
  • KentoOfHardrock - November 4, 2012 11:53 a.m.

    Hah, the chief could easily dodge that slow moving ability.
  • taokaka - November 2, 2012 5:06 p.m.

    This battle hasn't been thought out at all, firstly where are they fighting? Is there a lot of conveniently placed weapons on the ground for chief and chest high cover for Shepard? Are medigels and healthpacks allowed? What class is Shepard because people have been commenting on Shepard's ability to use biotics in the battle yet I went with a soldier class hence no biotics but more diversity in weapon loadout. Are Shepard's crew allowed? Are there vehicles scattered about the area? Does master chief have the pistol from the first Halo? Next time could we get the battle conditions so a proper gentlemanly debate over whether the chief would be teabagging Shepard or if Shepard would be celebrating at afterlife after his/her victory.
  • CrashmanX - November 2, 2012 5:54 p.m.

    EXACTLY! I'd probably say for sake of continuity go with the basic Soldier Shepard.
