David from BagoGames writes: Gears of War‘s influence on the gaming industry can’t be understated. While Kill Switch beat it to the punch by three years, Gears of War spawned a movement. Virtually every third person game with guns since its release has incorporated a cover system. It’s gotten to the point that a third person action game without a cover system in this day and age is an anomaly. The original Gears of War trilogy stands as one of last generation’s best. With that said, I have only just recently played through Gears of War: Judgment for the first time after playing the numbered entries, including Gears of War 4. It didn’t move as many units as Gears of War 3, but does that mean it’s not worth playing five years later?
