I know the internet lately has been clamoring for more games to go the God of War path, but not everything needs to go down that path. However, it looks like the Coalition has subtly incorporated some of the ideas and themes of the new God of War game without over doing. For one making this version a more personal story about Kat and family while exploring the history of Sera and the locust is a great way to move forward with the franchise while looking back at the history and origin of everything. Another big key were the scenes shown in the trailer, from the lush forest to the ice lake, it's taking the franchise in a direction where the story can matter and the gunplay could continue to excel. I guess the biggest difference with this and God of War is that God of War changed its gameplay in a big way while Gears even though changing scenery is still the same gunplay. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about it. I know we haven't seen much but the cutscene and the gameplay trailer, but the game also looked spectacular. Seeing JD's facial animation, its top notch. This should be in the same conversation as all the big Sony games everyone is talking about. Thoughts on how most will react to the actual game!?
