Bad stories are bad stories. Whether or not they leave mysteries for the sequel or not is NOT a justification for a bad story. Knowing Epic, it's very unlikely that Gears 2 will have a story that'll be even half as good as Bioshock's story, let alone be better. Seriously, Gears of War is nothing but a technical
masterpiece for its time, but now with a game like Bioshock that is better
than Gears save the lack of multiplayer online, it's also exciting to see what will overtake Gears, as that is inevitable (Halo 3). What will be interesting is what 2K will do with the Bioshock franchise, as clearly the first had already proven itself to be better than what is currently available (save online multiplayer).
