Gears of War is known for its bulky bros and over-the-top action, but across four games the Gears’ stories have pulled off much more than they often get credit for.
Bombastic battles will always be part of the Gears repertoire, but through excellent use of smart enemy design, comic relief, and defying player expectations, the franchise’s developers have created some of the best moments in any shooter. From all four games, here are the top 11 Gears of War campaign moments.
Full spoilers follow for Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War: Judgment. You’ve been warned!
