now before you go bashing me and yelling random expletives hear me out. Gears of war has always been a skill based shooter and is the one game that i truly enjoy to play. It isn't another CoD arcade shooter that any monkey could play and it isnt like halo where whoever has more teammates shooting with them wins. it is a game of chess where each move you make needs to be calculated and performed to be successful. while this may be a turn off for some casual players, it is the main reason why gears is the game it is today. I love the fact that if im better then the other guy im most likely going to win unlike cod where the first person to get their gun up wins. of course there are some things to cater to those less skilled players such as the sawed off and retro but all in all its fun to have some variety and a change up of weapons.
Obviously I want to see some changes made but lets not dumb this game down to the point of halo and CoD.
(BTW i love halo and cod, i just feel like both games aren't as skill based as gears)
