My rank list 1. Gears 2 2. Gears 1 3. Gears 3 4. Gears 4 5. Gears judgement
Agree with this
Gears 3 Gears 1 Gears 2 Gears 4 Gears judgment
Gears 2 ruined the gnasher. It'll always be at the bottom of the list for me. Gears 1 (I played it with friends online for 4 years straight. Great times! Very nostalgic for it) Gears 3 (It put the series back on course after the disastrous Gears 2. Gears 4 (The tightest well made Gears game yet, but the expensive game pass turned me off.) Gears Judgement (Strangest Gears game. Super large maps and Free For All mode was basically Battle Royale before it was a thing) Gears 2 (The game feels weird to control and the gnasher didn't often hit it's target)
Expensive GamePass? You know Gears 4 had a traditional release, and GamePass was just another way of playing it, right?
@starsi360 Traditional for you is paying 60 dollars for a game and then another 50 dollars to get the rest of the game? No thanks!
Mine order is: 2 3 1 4 Judgement But in all honesty I havent played very much of 4 so that could climb if I ever get back to playing it.
Fondly remember Gears 1 days on Gridlock, but imo Gears 4 was the best in terms of pvp. 4k 60fps on dedicated servers with tons of maps. Spent a good 2 and a half years playing it. Though I prefer classic horde. Didn't like the class and card system in Gears4.
My personal ranking for the series based on single player 1. Gears of War 2 2. Gears of War 3 3. Gears of War/ Gears of War: Ultimate Edition 4.Gears of War 4 5.Gears of War: Judgement In my opinion, Gears of War: Judgement has the weakest campaign in the series by a fairly large margin. Since I only got heavily into Gears PvP a few years ago, the best Gear Mp for me is 4, followed by Gears UE.
I never really got into the gears mp I still played a few rounds but my scores were based more so of the story 1 gears 1 maybe it's nostalgia but I enjoyed this entry the most it really did a great job setting the narrative plus it felt like the enemies were stronger here and there was more time spent explaining the world. 2 gears 2 3 gears 3 (very close to gears 2) 4 gears 4 still really good but never got the same high notes story wise as it's predecessors 5 judgement
Why rank this when 5 is near launch.
It's gotta be 1 3 4 2 for me personally.
I have enjoyed all the Gears. 1. Gears 3 2. Gears 1 3. Gears 4 4. Gears 2 5. Gears Judgement I don't think that Gears 4 gets the credit it deserves.
For me it: Gears 3 Gears 2 Gears 1 Gears 4 Gears Judgement 1-4 are all very close for me though.
