Why has the Gears series progressively worsened?

can anyone explain why? forget about the multiplayer aspect of the games.... let's discuss the campaign here.

I just played the third one. the story is making less sense than before (OMG MY FATHERS RESEARCH!) the new characters feel completely out of place (what is Jase doing here?) the humor is absolutely terrible and the new enemies belong in a Dead Space game. at least the ending was better than than the one in the second game... right?!

Why do all series progressively worsen?

Yep. Gears 3 was the best in the franchise, hands down.

Everything seems to always (at least in the fans' perception) get worse with each new iteration (though there are exceptions).

Put simply, if you stick with a franchise long enough, it will inevitably hit a point where the things that drew you to it personally in the first place are long gone.

That being said...I've only sparingly played Gears 2......

The story has always been practically non-existent and the humor has always been terrible.

But Gears 3 has a Kraken. The previous games don't. Based on that alone, I'd say Gears 3 is the best game in the series.
