WHooooooaaa, friend, I would have done the same thing. o-o Why though. Why. WHY. I seriously do not understand the mindset. I mean even if you have a lot of nostalgia… it doesn’t change the fact that Gears is a very sexist and very muddled game. Was it a good game? Yeah! Was it the GODLY PERFECTION people tend to think it is…? Not so much. I was really disappointed by it, to be honest!!!

I understand that!??? It’s just… a lot of people discredit Saga because they can’t remove the aforementioned nostalgia goggles. It’s okay to like Gears! It’s okay to like it more than Saga! But it’s also really hard to argue that Gears is a ‘technically superior’ game. i.e. When you remove nostalgia and emotional attachments— which those lists often aim to do— it’s nigh impossible to call Gears better, especially with the fragmented story and most of all, the blatant sexism that exceeds even the norms of the 90s.
What I’m trying to say is— a lot of people get lost in Gears nostalgia, and end up with a really warped view that puts Gears on a pedestal, and buries Saga in the dirt. :/ (I’ve never seen you do that— but man, I see other people do it a lot.)
Every time Xenogears is listen on a “Best RPGs” list and Xenosaga is not, I shrivel up and descend a little closer to total insanity
