Happy Tuesday Novas! Last week I started the Luna’s rankings post where I will list my top games in a series or genre and reasons why they were placed in that position. Last week we ranked my top call of duty games and this week we will tackle one of my favorite series:Gears of War! The rankings will be from worst to best so let’s get to it!
Gears of War 2– Gears of War 2 is my least favorite game in the franchise. It’s dunny, I remember the midnight release for this game and how it was amazing… until the first patch. After the first patch (which I didn’t think needed to happen, especially a week after the game releases) playing as Skorge was a hack. Also the smoke grenades, when tagged to an opponent would sometimes glitch you out of the map. But also I didn’t care for the maps that much.
Gears of War Judgement- From my online friends, this was their least favorite game in the series. Personally, I didn’t think the game was bad at all, I just really liked the other games better so this one seems far down the list. I loved the new characters and game modes in judgement as well. The library stage was my favorite.
Gears of War– The original game was super amazing. Since there are only 5 games in the franchise, it may seem like this game is far down the list but it’s no at all. I completely love this game and I have so many memories tied to it. This was one of the first XBOX games I played for 360. Back when I used my brother’s profile and 360 to play. I made so many friends, many of which I still hvae and met in real life. This game is amazing, I can’t stress it enough.
Gears of War 4- This is the current Gears of War game and it’s fantstic! The only reason this game isn’t number 1 in my mind is becuase I’m extremely sad that I can no longer used my Theron Guard. Because of the story, there are no more “Locusts” and therefore the Theron character that I have used across other titles no longer exists. The graphics for this game is awesome and I particularly like the animations with the executions.
Gears of War 3 – Gears 3 is the best game in my mind out of the franchise. This game had everything, game modes, characters, a great story and the online multiplayer was amazing! The feel of the game, the stages, the memories all rank this game number 1 out of the other titles, but I love all of the GOW games (except 2 blahhh).
Those are my rankings! How do you rank the GOW franchise games? what’s your favorite video game franchise? Let’s talk rankings!
Have a great day and Game On!
