David Jaffe has reflected on the God of War series and explained that if he were to create God of War now, he would like to mix elements of God of War and the Zelda titles from the N64.
Hmm, I'm not too sure about that, one game is fast paced the other one isn't.
Darksiders already did that keep God of War as awesome as it's now
Yea, I don't think they would mix very well. Anyways, has there been any new info on Jaffe's new game yet?
I think this is one of those ideas that sounds good but wouldn't execute very well. I think he found a winning formula with GOW, if he wanted to do a GOW+Zelda gameplay style then he should just make an other game.
Denis Dyack worked on some great games. Then he went off the deep end. Dave Jafee, you are using the same faulty map...
The Ancient Greek world actually does lend itself to an open world type of game. I think it actually would've been interesting to see the God Of War franchise in an open world rpg'ish like Dragon Age or Zelda 64 (I said rpg'ish). There is a lot of history that could be told and I actually do wish I knew more. I find GoW to expect the player to know a lot of the faces they introduce. I mean the Gods are often easy to identify but people like Icarus are more difficult. Anyway I don't think it's such a bad idea but it would probably be a totally different game than what we have now. I would like to see it, not if it would cost me the GoW we all know today though.
NO WAY, a GOW Game like this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Thats not even make sense...
Too late Jaffe, Vigil already figured it out; the game's called Darksiders, it's out next week and trust me, it fcuking rocks!
No thanks. It might be fine for DarkSiders, but I'll always love GOW's style. GOW has it's OWN style, it doesn't need to borrow style from other games.
GOW is the ultimate hacknslash franchise for a reason =D @ cheerleaders ah so darksiders is the new "game-we-are-getting-so-G OWIII-won't-seem-that-awsum&quo t;, i thought that was bayonetta =O darksiders has nothing to do with GOWIII, and i'm sure both will be great games in their own right.
Sorry Jaffe Darksiders already beat yall to it.
Was just thinking the same thing, really.
read the article. it will make your comments less ignorant.
Just give me Zelda 64 NAO
Looks like somebody has been keeping an eye on a little game called Darksiders.
But wow, that art photo up there ^ is truly epic and amazing. Kratos' slicing away at some demon enemy soldier (with a hook for a left arm) all atop of a flying griffin. PS3: It only does amazing games that inspire amazing artwork!
seriously, what's next from him? twisted metal to have "mario cart" influences????.......every time he opens his mouth, something completley idiotic comes out. as a big GOW fan,i want GOW to play like GOW!....NOT zelda.
don't hate the guy maybe he just want the game to apeal to wider audience and sell more
He's talking about if he was creating the ORIGINAL GoW TODAY. He's not talking about changing the existing series, he's talking purely in terms of hindsight. And if he HAD done so, you'd never know the difference as the GoW you know now never would have existed. Again, it's just him speculating. He's not going to change GoW, nor did he say he even WANTS to. Did you actually read his comment? Relax, people. Poor guy can't open his mouth without people twisting his words.
i think the original (and pt.2) were awesome experiences. and bungie, i don't hate the guy......i don't even know him. but i do hate many of his foolish comments - be it on games, women, or political issues.
Oh the irony. "BUNGIE" talking about another game perhaps needing to "SELL" more...Oh so transparent there, bub, keep 'em coming. As a huge fan of both, it'd be a slippery slope to tread, because you could have mechanics of both styles conflict at certain times, with things like pacing and whatnot. I believe it MAY be possible, but it'd be very tricky. I'm all for him making a variation or spinoff I guess, as long as it doesn't bomb, just to see how well he can tread that slope.
This could work, but they would have to keep it fast paced and with heavy action. But that could be for another game like Kratos and Nariko together
Could you imagine Kratos tearing through Hyrule Fields raping every living thing in site?
You put horrible thoughts into my head just now D: But I still found it amusing
Shut up and give me my new Twisted Metal already
That 64 zelda is the highest rated game of all time. While god of war is my favorite game, i would never say no to elements of zelda being thrown in.
that 64 zelda? Isn't their 2 of them? edit:: Oh never realized Ocarina of time was considered "zelda 64" ok I was wrong, was thinkin about ocarina of time and majoras mask.
You guys understand that this man CREATED God of War right? This guy is responsible for you being able to say "Shut up and leave GoW alone." I would think he knows what he's talking about and what would work in GoW since, you know, the franchise is HIS concept, HIS ideas, basically it's HIS from a creative point. He only wants a more open world for GoW, he never said anything about changing the core gameplay, he just doesn't want it to be as linear. What's wrong with that? He even said he'd keep the puzzles and combat that same GoW style so the gameplay isn't affected at all. Geez, you'd think PS3 fans would be used to new ideas considering all the new IP's out for the PS3.
GOW and Zelda already have many similarities when comparing the dungeon levels in terms of puzzles, design and spawning enemies. The only problem I see with an open world feel in GOW is the distances between each location would be huge. They have isolated levels and cut scenes to bridge the travel. It sounds like a better idea if it was a prequel (ignoring GOW:CoO)and reinacting the war where he calls for Ares and you could go from town to town slaughtering people.
No just no Mr. Jaffe
How 'bout you shut up and make one of the best video games ever made? Then, you can talk trash, ok?
