In the Gears 4 Prologue, you play as these random Gears. That’s it. No daddy issues and no stupid backstory. Just normal people fighting a war with the classic characters in the background. I wish they’d play more off that angle. I mean i don’t hate the main cast (except Kait I f#*'ing hate her) its just that its easier to relate with and immerse yourself with a faceless canon fodder than this 400lbs of pure muscle and testosterone with a damaged relationship with their dads. It’d be kinda cool if the next title was a spin off focused more on average gears who aren’t protected by plot armor and don’t dive too deep into their background
…why do you hate Kait tho?
My favorite thing about Gears of War 4 was that my kids were finally old enough to play with me.
Gears 6 should start with a character generator. We could be everybody we wants.
Or maybe an open world similar to The Division 2 or Ghost Recon: Wildlands. With some main missions, some side missions. With enemy lurking behind the shadows. With allies walking in some streets. Yeah…
A spin off game could be just what you need. Come to think of it, it does sound a great idea. Completely story based, a sort of DLC even.
Because she’s absolutely terrible. First half of the game is “oww I have a headache” and the rest is her trying to sound edgy and cool but not doing anything other than complaining and bossing around her commanding officers. She’s trash. Sam was a better role in Gears 5 than Kait was. Lizzie Carmine was a better character in 20 minutes than kait has been in 2 games. She just sucks
