So several months back, I had made a thread asking who all was going to still play 4 after 5 came out, and here are some highlights…
So here we are, over a month past release, and I must say that it gets less and less enjoyable as time goes on. But I do wonder, am I just biased to 4? I tend to see mostly negative reactions to it on the forums, but then again, no one is gonna come to an online game forum just to sing its praises (and those who do get shamed), and Gears 4 certainly had its haters all the way up to 5’s release. The same people that bashed 4 are now saying the 4 was a superior game. Which I am inclined to agree with.
So what is it? Do we need more time to adjust, does it need a few big updates? I honestly don’t know. What I do know is that 5 seems to decrease in enjoy-ability the more I play it, and it seems to be having issues that shouldn’t even exist, like the ranking system being as bugged as it is.
Now of course I don’t hate it enough to stop playing it, and there is some fun to be had in it for sure. But I 4 is starting to look a lot more enticing of late.
