I've played both several times each, and I find this perspective curious too. GOW2 had better graphics, better framerate, better controls, more weapons, more level variety, more enemies and Horde mode which could be its own game. It really was bigger, better and more badass. And I don't see how any of those points are even subjective.
Maybe it's something to do with the multiplayer but it seemed just as busted in both. Or maybe some enjoyed the story more in the 1st? I don't play Gears for the story and have no opinion on this.
I think it's more likely just a case of rose colored glasses. The 1st was something so new and defined the platform. The 2nd could be seen as just more of the same. I'm obviously just guessing here because I see GOW2 as clearly superior to the already great GOW1.
If anyone with an opposing position would like to share their reasoning, I'd be interested?
