Norse mythology holds the answers to all your God of War questions

So you’ve seen the new, Scandinavian-themed God of War demo from E3. You’ve watched Kratos’ transition from furious, eye-popping death-man to concerned but emotionally repressed father. You’ve seen rangey, rapid-fire combat replaced with slower-paced, altogether more intimate, father-and-son beast slaying. But there’s still one big question regarding the series’ new direction. Just what the hell exactly is going on?

Very interesting theories here. Great article!

pixlz2710d ago

Totally interesting theory. I just will note, the end of God of War.... the first game. Kratos is still the God of War through modern time. They do that through history montage.

The fact that there might be a norse God of War right now, i feel ilke Kratos will take back the mantel. I also feel as if Kratos is destined not to die. Just cause of that first ending. Or if he does is destined to come back.

But otherwise fantastic theories. Especially about the son.

According to Norse mytho.. Loki is Thor's Uncle , Odin's brother and NOT Thor's brother...

The best games of their generation too. Its incredible how great most if not all of playstations games are. Whether you like the stories or not you cant deny the quality of each title.

Hated tlou part 2. But im going to buy it when it is cheap enough because i want to play the remastered content for $10 extra dollars. Theyre adding a roguelike mode...thats going to be fun!

Both requels over 2 and 3? Clowns. Those are two of the most boring games I've ever played.

Snookies1223d ago

GoW 3 was amazing, but I personally hated just one thing. (This is on me alone, because I was dumb, lol.) I hated that you couldn't skip cutscenes on repeat playthroughs. I had to go back through the game a third time because I missed one trophy accidentally on my way to the platinum... The cutscenes were great the first go round, even the second... But the third was pretty agonizing.

Haven't played Ragnarok, but I still think GoW 4 is a wonderful game in its own right. Not sure how I would stack them up against each other honestly.

Monstieur23d ago (Edited 23d ago )

I don't consider the reboot part of the original series. The original series were high-skill games with combos and rewards for mixing things up.

solideagle22d ago

lol square, square and triangle is the only combo you needed. I have played all of them on the hardest difficulties...

Golfcoachh23d ago

Maybe I’m just old school but I just couldn’t get into the last two. Maybe it’s the slower action and more story telling but the original trilogy was by far my favorite.

Crows9023d ago

It's not that youre old school. They're different genres

JL293022d ago (Edited 22d ago )

Me either, at all. It's just yap yap yap. They try to be a RPG's instead of being action games like they used to be.

Fluke_Skywalker23d ago

I'd put the two psp games over 3 in terms of story any day. But not over 2.

My favorite was part 2 and I think Ragnarok is better that 2018.

Shane Kim23d ago

The newer games are better imo.

ravens5223d ago

There is no worst. Except for Ascension, only cause I didn't play it lol. They are all masterpieces. 1,2,3, 2018 and Ragnarok. 1 of, if not the greatest video game franchise...besides MetalGear.

Snookies1223d ago

Oh wow, I actually forgot that Ascension even existed... I never played it either.

Crows9023d ago

I like ascension. It was different and some interesting combat additions.

darthv7223d ago

If you didnt play it, how could you call it the worst? Its not as bad as the media portrayed it. Honestly the worst are those flash games. they arent even considered true GoW games but in name only. At least Ascension is a real GoW game.

ravens5223d ago

Not saying it's a terrible game. Just mean it's at the bottom of my list. I played a little bit of it. Jus to me, compared to the other main games, it's last.

Fluke_Skywalker23d ago

Ascension is the only GOW game I never finished. Hated it.

Inverno23d ago

Can't agree, older games do so much more than the last two. More weapons, magic abilities, enemies are more varied, level design is also more aesthetically pleasing, and agree with those who say that they shouldn't have removed jumping. Was a time I'd agree, but those old games are so so much better, that they really should've looked into bringing into the reboot/sequels.
