- One more instalment
- The franchise goes away for 8-10 years
- Sony Santa Monica create a new IP in-between
- Come back with an epic, epic, epic new God of War title on the PS4

My idea of perfection :)

MmaFanQc2901d ago

i dont want GOW to be like halo.

Shang-Long2901d ago

Good to hear. Complete the tale and start somthing new.

Jinxstar2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Very subtle way to knock other franchises. (Halo, FF)

I have loved everything done by santa monica so far. They have earned the right to smack talk imo(If you consider it smack talk...). I would love to see a new IP from them. =D

MIDNIGHT!!!!!

AngelorD2901d ago

Halo 2
Halo 3
Halo 3: ODST
Halo Reach
Halo Legends
Halo Wars
Halo Risk Board Game

mmm... How about a Halo milk?
yummy!

IdleLeeSiuLung2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Nothing wrong with spin-offs, if that is what the fans want. It is a crime not to give the fans what they want just for the sake of it!

To real fans, it is not milking if it is a good product!!!

PopEmUp2901d ago

I like halo juice better lol

-MD-2901d ago

Should I bring up the 15 titles in the Gran Turismo series? We can go ahead and call that milking too.

How about the 12 games in the Ratchet and Clank series?

@MmaFanQc

You mean have 5 great games in the franchise? When you think about it, God of War, a Franchise I love to death has, God of War 1, 2, Chains of Olympus, a re-release in HD of 1-2 and now God of War 3, that`s 5 seperate releases in the last 5 years. Halo has 5 individual games in the last 8 years. You good at math?

I think we should hope it does not become a Metal Gear, or a Tony Hawk, or a Guitar Hero, or an Army Men. Those are all better examples of franchises getting milked.

Dacapn2901d ago

Actually yes. Please name all 15 Gran Turismo games. Watching you pwn yourself this early in the morning is a good way to start the day.

@Murderdolls

AWwweee did these mean people hurt your feelings boooo hooo.why are you so sensitive.im really getting sick of all the crying on n4g.

Montrealien2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

well Dacapn, I named 5 god of war releases in the last 5 years vs 5 Halo releases in the last 8 years, I think that is more interesting. But I do understand why it would be easier for you guys to ingore such a fact. Murderdolls was clearly exagerating, only a ***** would fall for that clear as day trolling attempt.

The reality is, as long as the Milk is good, milk it all you want!, And in the case of God of War and Halo, the milk is just as yummy as it was when both those franchises started.

The Maxx2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Do some research. It takes 2 minutes to find all the GT series.

Here I will give you a start. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Halo has 1/4 of the games GT has out there.

terrorofdeath2901d ago

Yeah, Halo is ultimate milking, but FF is a new story every game. The only exceptions to this is the milking of FFVII, and FFX-2. But the latter wasn't too good anyway.

Montrealien2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

I don`t need to do researche The Maxx, I know there is not 15 GT games or 12 Ratchet games. That`s why I said murderdoll was exagerating simply to put fuel to the fanboy fire.

multipayer2901d ago

12 Ratchet games sounds right.

Good guess...

Montrealien2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

gah, the ratchet and Clank Mobile games! I counted ten in my head, forgot about the mobile ones.

@gah 2! Those damn mobile games escape me! lol I always forget aobut them.

deafwing2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Agreed!

Unless if you're mario, megaman, or SQUIINIX's FF series, you risk diluting the potency of a great franchise.

@AngelorD

LOL @ the "Halo:Milk" joke.

@..Everyone

Contrary to popular belief there are actually five(5) God of War games, not three. Besides the PSP game, there's a mobile game, God of War: Betrayal that takes places between 1 & 2. It's actually not half bad. Link>>> "en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go d_of_War:_Betrayal"

jjohan352901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

As long as they all match up to the quality of the original trilogy. How can anyone complain if we get 20 epic God of War games?

If we didn't have more than 3 games in any given franchise, we wouldn't be blessed with the greatest game of this generation: MGS4.

The problem with other franchises is that the spinoffs have all sucked. For some reason, I find it hard to believe that Sony Santa Monica would produce anything less than stellar, even if it's their 20th game.

spunnups2901d ago

I think a God of War RTS could be Epic. Make it like "LOTR: Battle For Middle Earth" and might actually come out pretty good. Just an idea.

solidt122901d ago

@mjolliffe

exactly. wait til about mid to end of PS4 life cycle then bring God of War back with incredible visuals and game play.

The Maxx2900d ago

So you clearly were wrong about the R&C series...maybe you should do that research thing and click on the LINK I provided. Then you won't look as ignorant. Don't be shy...just click the link. You will learn something.

Man, I couldn't agree more!

GR8 12901d ago

If only GT5 developer can say the same.

topgeareasy2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Halo

Halo wars, Halo Overpriced Down Loadable Content now reach then halo foreunners or what ever.

SI7VER2901d ago

I mean seriously, why do you spend so much time talking trash? I just don't understand your logic. Are you trying to convince everybody to ONLY play the console that you prefer?

Akagi2901d ago

I think you missed what the definition of what a "spin-off" is, sir.

Think hard.

Valay2901d ago

I don't want 20 God of War spinoffs either.

washingmachine2901d ago

i know it,dont wonna do a halo lolz

BeaArthur2901d ago

Really? First of all Halo hasn't had 20 spinoffs. Second, as much as people may disagree, Halo Wars is a blast online. As far as ODST goes, it's an expansion pack (I don't care what the devs. or anyone else says, it is an expansion pack) which lots of games have. There is nothing wrong with expanding a rich universe as long as you do it well.

No we don't want 20 spinoffs but some good DLC or expansions or even 1 or 2 spinoffs wouldn't be such a bad thing. Spinoffs are only a bad thing when they start to milk a franchise to death.

-MD-2901d ago

Once again the Halo series only has one spin-off and that's Halo Wars.

Halo 1, 2 and 3 are all part of the main series with ODST being an expansion to 3 and Reach being a prequel.

PopEmUp2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

"ODST being an expansion to 3" are you forgetting that most halo fanboy denying that ODST wasn't an expansion, now you here trying to say it only an expansion ROFL MAN/GIRL ROFL

The Maxx2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

Your comment is a piss poor comment.

You are confusing the term "EXPANSION" with "EXPANSION PACK".

ODST is an EXPANSION or ADDITION to the Halo Universe. People were saying it's a sperate game and not an "EXPANSION PACK" retailed at $60 to Halo 3. That was the argument you are referring too. Murderdolls was saying that ODST is an EXPANSION to the Halo 1,2,3 Universe. Thus it's not a spin off. While Halo Wars (GREAT GAME) is a spin off.

PopEmUp2901d ago (Edited 2901d ago )

it doesn't change the fact Muderdoll is trying to spin that ODST is not a spin off, but he/she just need to accept it's a spin off
