So, I know this topic has been run into the ground multiple times, but Gears really needs a real comeback currently. The best way for TC to do this (cue the groans) is to make a Gears 2 remaster.
Hear me out. Before Gears 4 came out, TC went ahead and remastered the classic Gears 1. While I understand that this was intended at getting TC’s feet wet in the Gears Universe, it also acted as a great way to bring back Gears veterans and new players alike, and helped with bringing back the Gears hype.
I am by no means saying Gears 5 is a “terrible game”. It’s not. It has plenty of flaws that need ironing out, but from a general overview, the game is fine. But just fine. It needed to be the next big thing in the series, and kinda just fell flat. With that being said, it left a lot of fans disheartened and they up and left, leaving only the diehard fans, which are few and far between.
I love Gears of War and always will. Gears 2 was and is my favorite in the franchise. To give it a new coat of paint, rework the multiplayer and clunky movement, and to bring back some of the greatest Gears maps, would do wonders for this community. I have never seen a community quite so passionate about what they play, and I mean that in a good way. A Gears 2 remaster would allow TC to reinvigorate the Gears base, as well as give them time to reorganize themselves and prepare for the final chapter in the Gears series (Gears 6). With Rod gone, they are going to need time to make sure this final game hits all the right notes. So why not take their time with it, make a game that the fans would love, and put the rest of their time and resources obtained from the remaster, and make Gears 6 one of the best in the series.
Let me know what you think! I understand everyone is going to have their own opinion on the matter, so please be civil (I’d rather not have my thread locked down). Remember, at the end of the day, we’re all Gears.
