In Gears 1 Anthony wasn’t a bumbling buffoon, he had a few funny lines but he was voiced pretty seriously, I’ve noticed a trend that with every gears game Anthony inherits a view of Ben’s lines and now in Gears 4 him and Ben are interchanged as if they are the same person with a high-pitched annoying voice and Clayton has taken on the more serious role. Please consider reworking the dialogue and having Michael Gough go back to his Gears 1 roots when voicing Anthony, leave the sniveling pathetic little brother stuff for Benjamin.
Here is Gears 1 Anthony
Gears 2 Benjamin
Gears 3 Clayton, notice most of his lines are Anthony’s more serious ones from Gears 1
Here is Gears 4 where they pretty-much combine them both into one character.
As someone who has played as Anthony Carmine since 2006 it’s a shame to see what a joke he’s become and honestly it hurts to play as him sometimes in Gears 4 when a cringy Ben sounding line comes out of his mouth, please take his characterization more seriously.
