However, Netflix is walking into a huge trap if it thinks it can adapt the Gears of War franchise from an elaborate narrative point of view. Simply put, the streaming giant must make a difficult but crucial choice to leave the Fenix family where they belong – in gaming – and craft an entirely original story with new characters for the film adaptation.
This is a confusing opinion. If Netflix is adapting the video game series, why does it need to abandon the Fenix family saga? You shouldn’t stick to fan-favorite plotlines and lovable character, build core viewership, then branch out into stories set inside the larger Gears of War universe.

It still features some of the most memorable characters, monsters and settings in the horror franchise. While it did a better task honoring Capcom’s acclaimed series than other live action Resident Evil properties, it still fell short of what fans had expected.

It’s never too late for Netflix to change its mind, however.
