Gears of War: Judgement looks awesome - but why a prequel?

"The big question is: do we need another Gears of War? The bigger question is: do we need a prequel set during the war we just ended in Gears of War 3? The biggest question is: are Baird and Cole able to carry us through like Marcus and Dom did? The answer to all three questions is, unfortunately, the same."

uhm...why NOT a prequel? Sequel after sequel after sequel it's good to have a change!

Yup, and I saw the new footage from today's why Epic will probably always have my respect one way or the other. I'll finish off by saying that, I can't wait for more gameplay footage.

Was going to say that dammit! Lol.. But yeah, im glad its a prequel.
Edit: meant prequel not sequel

Why a prequel? All the enemies died at the end of Gears of War 3.

:P thats like saying theres no more stormtroopers left after return of the jedi

konnerbllb2235d ago

Well was there a light mass bomb that went off in return of the jedi that destroyed all stormtrooper dna? Because thats how gears 3 ended. no locust dna on that planet for a sequel.

DarkBlood2234d ago (Edited 2234d ago )

"no locust dna on that planet" exactly none on that planet, guess my point should of been is that the trouble isnt over yet

next time you use a spoiler tag for those who have not beaten the game yet

konnerbllb2235d ago

It's been out almost a year. I don't see the need to use spoiler tags six months after a film or video game has been out.

I do like the class based multiplayer, but I think the new game mode could have been added onto Gears 3.

This article is asking the wrong question which is the obvious "why not?" Basically when you have nowhere else to go you can add something new by going back in time, just ask george lucas... Fact is that a lot of these potential blockbusters at e3 are prequels... God of War, Tomb Raider, Aliens colonial marines. Let's not forget what Halo Reach was... Gears of war can extend the series by staying in the past and introducing new characters and aliens if they choose... I still crack up at what lucas arts did by introducing the old republic era hundreds of years before episode 1... If you look up the term "milking a cow" you'll see george lucas's face next to it.

Why a prequel? Because the sequel will be next Gen.
