Everyone from Bethesda to Naughty Dog to Yacht Club are giving the team at Sony Santa Monica a well-deserved pat on the back.
God of War isn’t just a video game, but it’s also create huge influences to video game industry.
I never liked God of War and i never will.......unfortunately GOW 4 doesnt change things ...but is only me ...good for PS4 that has another solid title on its belt (no matter if i dont like it at all)
You still hate Western gaming.
its probably because you only play piece of shit one piece games
God of War 2018 might as well be a new IP considering how drastic the changes are from the previous games in the series. Seriously, if the main character's name was Svenson and didn't have the red tattoo, people wouldn't even think to compare them, that's how different they are.
@Killswitch ....i dont understand what you mean by saying one piece games (wut is that??) ...if you mean Japanese made games..... yes i do ...and your comment doesnt change that Kratos design is Sh%%y altogether like he was made by an elemntary kid (other concepts and generally the artistic design of the game follows the same trend as well)
Naruga is the same person who thinks Resident Evil 7 is extremely bad. He also thinks Uncharted 1 is the best Uncharted. This guy clearly has issues.
You didn't give a reason which pretty much makes your comment redundant.
@Brave Loser ....Yes U1 is the best Uncharted ....and by disagreeing with that means that you never played original Crash bandicoot trilogy ;) ........also Re7 is not bad, is literally abysmal ....
@Firelogic GoW was not only about the fixed camera and chain blades... I wish people stop this already. GoW was mainly 3 things: ***Kratos, gore, and Mythology setting.* If there was another character, people would compare it because the game would have been still about mythology and gore. People would ask, where is Kratos? Also this would have been done by the same developers, so again where is Kratos? Maybe dead? Did he pass the torch to someone else? It doesn't matter. It would still be called god of war because of Mythology and gore. And SSM was bold to stick with Kratos and give him a new beginning, a twists... for the sole reason that Kratos is still there, this is GOD OF WAR! This is this generation's God of War. The old trilogy was PS3's... time to let go already The only way this could have been a new IP is if they got rid of the mythology setting and the gameplay was not hack n lash anymore.
It doesn’t matter. You have your vendetta against western gaming and it’s audience. So stop lying.
This is God of War. It is part of the old trilogy yet at the same time it is new. Kratos would not be the man he is without being the man he was. The players that traveled down those roads with him see him in a way that those picking up their first God of War game cannot understand. I welcome those players and they are in for a ride, but for veterans of the journey, this older Kratos has scars that 1st time players do not see...and cannot feel. It is a series that has evolved. It has plenty in common with the previous games. And if you have not played those titles, you have as a gamer, done yourself a disservice. The series has grown. It needed to do so for the good of the story, the gameplay, and the characters. And yet it has retained everything important from the previous titles. Had it not expanded and matured, no matter how good the game, the sameness would have provided the ammunition small minded people would have used to try and attack the game.
Why wouldn’t you try this one. Obviously much different. Your loss!
@naruga The definition of abysmal is extremely bad. Seems like you attempt to use a word and not even know the meaning of it. Thank god you aren't a game reviewer because you would probably be the worst one.
Naruga, i don't blame you at all. A best friend of mine still think that RE5 is the best game of all time. He didn't want to play TLOU, not interested in GOW because they change the camera. He even refused to buy PS4 because RE7 is a First Person View. All those argument he obtained by watching Youtube!!!. While i disagree most of his thinking, i can't blame him at all. Good or bad we can always debate about it. But like or dislike is a very personal i think.
I never liked GOW either. but this version look interesting to try it out.
Believe me when I say, I agree with you.. It does not matter whether you like it or not.
This is the definition of gaming to me, beautifully created wide-linear single player games with powerful storytelling and incredible art and visuals. It’s exciting to think of what a company like SSM could do with the Star Wars IP, and depressing to remember that EA has exclusive rights to it. Don’t tell EA this, these types of games don’t sell. Wahhhh we’re not making any money without these new exploitive practices, I’m only on twenty mil a year. Wahhhhh. A lot of IPs got butchered this gen by big publishers spewing out their monetised rubbish. It’s sad, these are too far and few between all the trash and mass market multiplayer games out there. Gaming to me is rooted in single player storytelling and gameplay. Multiplayer as far I’m concerned, is the new pub for people. Nothing more than a social conduit. Gamers are sharing a space (Xbox and PS4) with social players. They’re different things entirely to me. God of War delivers (Up to Mimir atm) every step of the way. It is a reminder of hope that gaming can go back to the way it was.
I would say that i am happy that i am a video gamer and got to play God of War. This game is something so special to me that i can't explain. Though i have played many games that i loved so much No games made to feel this way before..
I’m must admit that when God of War was announced with its new combat I was worried. I saw the gameplay and told my self that God of War was ruined. Then I decided to read the reviews of the game and gave the game a chance. Now I must say that this is Sony this generation best game. I’m stunned on how great this game is. This GOW is different than the other GOW games but is the same in satisfaction. It is refreshing and the battle combat is enjoying. The axe is awesome and when you unlock more skills the battle combat gets better. My final grade of this game is A++ must play game. Thank you Santa Monica for proving me wrong.
GOW is blowing me away
I haven’t played much past the first big fight, however if it gets better than that we’re in for a treat.
The second big fight is frigging awesome.
Loving it too! The Leviathan Axe is awesome, launching and recalling it never gets old.
I know we’re def going to see other game studios ape that feature in the years to come
Same here man. I dont know how far into the game playtime I am in right now, but dude, i am freakin loving it!!!!
The fight against the dark elf boss in the cavern is magnificent . I love this game
Amazing to see. If there's anyone that knows how much blood, sweat, and tears went into creating this masterpiece, it's other talented developers. Hope this inspires them to follow what they believe in, but most importantly I hope publishers give them the freedom and resources to do so.
I'm telling u when u can change up the gameplay mechanics to fit perfectly with the story and also have gamers have a strong connection to the characters the game doesn't just feel like a game, it actually makes u feel like your there with these characters taking the journey with them and it brings the game to life. People don't understand how much harder it is to do all these things in a game. It simply something u cannot experience just from a game that just has great gameplay like Mario Galaxy, or an online multiplayer game like fort nite. It's beyond those kinda games.
First hour, amirite?
That Stranger fight.... That was awesome
GOW is GOTY AND GOTG imo....I hope like hell it gets MS off there lazy asses and start making some NEW GOOD SP OFFLINE CAMPAIGN DRIVEN games.....one can hope and dream. Cuz the BS GAAS route Phil is so in love with is destroying there brand and making a complete JOKE out of Xbox and there fans deserve alot better than that. Thank goodness for games like GOW and Horizon so that they may influence the lazy companies who are only concerned with MP crapfests to rethink their strategies and create more SP games like this.
Yeah that’ll happen I predict we will see Microsoft e3 will be games the same games that is halo7 gears 5 forza 9 or 10 fable 5 lucky tail 2 crack down 3 and be will be deem the greatest lineup of games every
And than some third party games timed excl. and some more first on Xbox PR b*s.
I'm def excited to see if they stick with "console launch exclusive" and "exclusive world premiere" or if they create new terms to suggest that they have a good number of exclusives.
Are you the original 'jokes on you' member?
That guy was a nightmare
not me bud.
Am I finally off the hook now Wood?
I hope Bethesda are taking notes.
I played GoW4 for over 12 hours yesterday - there aren't words to do it justice as to how amazing it is. I don't see how another game could be game of the year. edit - now back to GoW4!
I would say the only real competitor this year would be Red dead redemption 2. But after the success r* had with gta online, i'm a little worried if they focus too much on the mp part and don't put that much effort into the sp campain.
I'm with you. RDR certainly has potential; but I'm concerned r* is going to be so worried about getting the online crammed in this game it might hurt the SP experience. btw - just got done playing another 6 hours and GoW4 keeps getting better in every regard. it's as good a game as I've played in years.
I only see RDR2 or Spider-Man making a run vs GOW4.
Wow such heartwarming greetings... really love to see how industry top dogs appreciate each other ... more support for SP games ... a bigger shoutout for industry leading exclusives !!!
I have a feeling that the game will win goty :)
It's nothing better than getting the acknowledgment and accolades from your peers. I was playing GOW in a chat party of 8 last night, it was total chaos but a gr8 time no less. All the praise over this game is well deserved.
These are great. Really love the Naughty Dog one where Nathan Drake is doing the toast from The Great Gatsby
God of War is not only a masterpiece but a celebration of the gaming industry on why we love single player quality games and story telling. GOW is definitely one of the games that will define this generation. The Last of Us 2 and Spider Man are coming to add to that list. Such a wonderful moment in life to be a Playstation gamer.
Sony will move more copies of God Of War 4 than MS will sell Xbox Ones in the remaining 9 days of the month. Edit. They probably did that in one day...
I can't afford to buy it atm :) so hard avoiding spoilers
god of war launch is testament that single player games can work that's why industry big time developers are praising the game and the studio. This shows that you can evolve your IP without needing to do a complete reboot or re telling of old story
Agreed, plus gow is the classic sp model from the 80s, no dlc, no season pass, no Mt, no grinding. Its just a very well made sp game with great story, passion, dedicated talented devs and unlocking and crafting stuff as you progress. Who would have thought.
This is a great example of video game publishing. No micro transactions, no loot boxes. Complete quality game for $60 simple as that. No bs controversies or drama. I applaud Sony for this. Setting the example. For the players first!!!
Yep just a good old fashioned sp experience unlocking and progressing stuff as you play through the game. Who would of thought :)
Hey you could get Rise of tomb raider at full 4k on pc? Or you can play this masterpiece
Nice to see deva appreciate the works of other devs. You know some of them will get a shot in the arm and up their game after playing this and seeing it's critical acclaim.
Most of the shops here in Saudi are out stock and some are charging 70USD and above for the game. I got mine for 77USD. The price will normalise next week but I don’t want to prolong the agony of not playing GOW. Ahehehe
GOW gets congrats message from ALL developer studio...........were's evil EA??? to busy making "another" MT game perhaps?
Or MS for that matter ;)
EA is gonna butcher poor Anthem
