Watch God of War Director Cory Barlog Get Emotional as He Reacts to Stellar Reviews

Watch God of War Director Cory Barlog as he checks out the first reviews released a few days ago while getting emotional and thanking his team.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's adorable!!!! He's so humble by the stellar reception for the game. Hard not to like the guy. Hopefully, Sony allows him to create his own IP. Congrats to him and the team because it seems like they did a phenomenal job :D Can't wait for tomorrow!!!!

We love you Corey Barlog and your whole team behind this epic game, i knew from that first debut at e3 2016 that this game was going to be a smash hit especially in the end of that trailer where u finally see kratos have some kind of emotion from him. I knew this was going to be an emotional but epic journey. I'm so glad most reviewers felt the same way about your game and gave it all the praise it deserved. I'm actually buying 2 copies for me and my nephew. Thanks again for another smash blockbuster game Corey and studio and for Sony giving u guys time to make such a masterpiece. Well done.

Congratulations to Cory, SM and Sony for this gen defining game. The risk payed off in the best possible way. I'm truly happy and filled with hope that SP games like GOW are keeping my favorite thing-games- alive and kicking.

1 hr left until I get my hands on this gem. Cant freaking wait.

What's this water coming out of my face??

Haha well done man. Well deserved. 5 years of hard graft paid off.

Epic game. The fruits of 5 years of labour, being released into the world on April 20th.

Yeah, this is so awesome to see that kind of emotion from him. You can tell how much hard work has gone into this game. I'm loving the game so far. It's incredible.

Damn! I am gonna cry... I am happy that Sony and SM took the risk and believed in this guy. And Hard work finally paid off. Congratulations to everyone who was behind God of War. You guys created a Masterpiece imo.. I played for an Hour after it got unlocked and had to hit the bed because had to wake up early for some business i need to take care off. But will get back to and will explore everything this game has to offer. Man! The Game looks breath taking and calling back the Leviathan is so so so Scarifying..

Stupid life commitments 😂 I couldn't put it down and it's now 5 in the morning and have to get up for work in a few hours. Played about 4 hours and I'm blown away. I've barely scratched the surface but I'm already getting masterpiece vibes off it. Can't wait to play more after what will inevitably be a very unproductive day in work.

This is how you know that he poured his heart and soul into this game and it's probably the reason why the game is getting all the praise it's received. Congratulations Cory Barlog and the Santa Monica team. You all deserve it!

So happy for him and the team! He had a vision and when no one thought it would work he stayed the course and wound up raising the bar for what an action adventure RPG can be!

Nyxus236d ago

He fully deserves it! I hope the game will sell millions. My copy arrives tomorrow!

It will sell millions, might even break records,a well known I.P with the combination advertisement everywhere along with one of the best collections of stellar reviews ever it's bound to sell millions.

Nyxus236d ago

Yeah, it's bound to do really well.

AlphaCentyros236d ago

Will SSM benefit from more sales? Will they get a percentage of the total revenue? I would really hooe they do.

“It will sell millions, might even break records,a well known I.P with the combination advertisement everywhere along with one of the best collections of stellar reviews ever it's bound to sell millions.”

I’m sure it’s going to sell very well.

NPD analyst Mat Piscatella:

“So, my confidence is high that God of War will be the biggest exclusive debut on the PS4. Only question I have left is how high is the sky for a primarily story driven, non service game. Haven't seen a game like this rated this highly in years, so this will set the benchmark.“

It’s out of stock in amazon currently so that says something

I think we Gamers forget how long these guys and girls have been working on a game, and I know we give them a lot of grief when they get it wrong, but man wow, maybe we should give them the same praise and thank you's when they get it right.....

So Director Cory Barlog if by some miracle you end up reading this... Let me just say this...

Dude your work is so appreciated, I like many gamers live and breathe to enjoy games, and I enjoy nothing more then when a game is done really well, Video Gamers are crazy and sometimes loony at times, but one thing I don't think comes across is we just really love games... And we just want an Awesome Game.

So Thank you for hitting this thing out the park, I promise to buy the next one too, no questions asked, I hope the game sales a ridiculous amount of copies... Dude you rock, tell the team we Gamer's really appreciate you guys...

And thanks for sharing this video, its nice to see a game director really care about if the game does well...
