ThisGenGaming says "This years God Of War release is going to deserve your attention, here's why everyone including first time players needs to give this game your attention."
Because the hype is real and if this is your first GOW, you missed a ton of fun! Go buy the series!
Man, I still remember my first time. I was like "Wow, this is the most amazing feeling I've ever had." I fully expect my head to completely explode all over the place after this one. Can't WAIT for God of War!
I also remember the feeling: "They finally made it, the game I always wanted to play!"
I was working at GameStop when 1 and 2 released and I had no interest in it until a week prior to 2 released, that is when I borrowed a used copy of gow1 and I'm glad I tried it, as it is easily one of the best franchises
First God of War was what turned me into the PS fan. Random little kid told me to pick that game when I was at the counter to buy some PS2 games. At first I thought it was crap because the camera was locked unlike Prince of Persia. Thank God I played for 30 mins more. Best decision I've ever made. God of War was truly an epic game with great story and great set pieces. I thank that kid everyday to be honest.
InTheZoneAC Awesome. I ASM'ed 2 Gamestop stores during that period. (2005-2008: 360, PS3 & Wii launches also). We would always break store rules and we'd put it in the demo system when the store was empty. That's how I first experienced it as well. I started with EB Games, didn't like how Corporate operated behind the scenes the longer I was with Gamestop. It's still good for consumers on like the Buy 2 get 1 free used games. They treat their employees, especially management like crap. (Maybe some districts are better than others). I'd rather go blow my wad of cash somewhere else.
I was thinking iv not played the old installments and won’t buy the new until iv done the old Looks great tho
They is always one
I've still got a glitched trophy on GOW 2 that's stopped me from getting the Platinum so think I'll go back and play them through again too. Fantastic stories and some bad ass battles
Since you don't need to have played the other games for this one, I think it is a given. A perfect time to jump on.
My attention was giving from the very first game
I’ve played every GoW to date, some multiple times. This game had my attention before it was even announced.
Same here. I must admit I was a bit wary about the change of direction when the new God of War was announced (it just wasn't what I was expecting) but it looks great. Really intrigued to see how it will pan out.
The best part about the game is when they said you can explore and you will find yourself an optional boss to fight or a dungeon to explore.
I'm glad I'll have the ability to stop and look around.
It had my attention since 2005. and i will have the badass collector's edition in my hands on 20.4. The time has come to kill some nordic gods...
If you haven't played previous GoWs smdh go pick those up right now.
Kratos making bald men proud since 2005! (now with extra thick beard) Can't wait for the game release!
I agree completely with this article. I have been wanting a revamp for God of War since the 2nd installment. So excited for this!
3 was probably the best in series
Got my stone mason edition preordered, can't wait to play this beaute
i preordered collection edition, in my country there is non stone mason editions. anyways, they are nearly identical what so ever.
I never played GoW before but I watched the videos of the first three builds. This seems to be a more mature product of the series with a great script dialogue and development. I got interested in it due to the Morse mythology and the duet gameplay of two characters. It's an interesting idea to have a switch or programmed switch between characters. Makes the game play worthwhile and adds more replay value. Melee and archery combines pretty well on games like these. Horizon Zero Down made fresh that experience.
Glad I went with PS4/PC this generation!!
That's the smartest way to go. I have a good juicy rig and a PS4 with very few games on them. Only the best top titles.
Besides Nintendo what else would there be?
Another great picture of Kratos ready to slash the XBOX one even harder :D Kratos, "beat his ass"....:P I think this game is going to be a great surprise for many in the series. It's going to be great.
There was one single thing that i was wishing for while playing the old games - a closer camera from behind to create a more intimate feeling. Now that santa monica changed it, i am even more hyped about the game than i would have been anyways.
I remember during GOW 3 (I think) they talked about getting more details into the game. I remember thinking, why don't you make the camera closer instead of doing a close up every time you want to show something cool.
This is my favorite Playstation series and in my top 5 all time. I'm so looking forward to this.
I have the hardcover art book, hardcover guide and digital deluxe paid off. Now we wait.
Bring on the pain train! Kratos lives!
My attention?, lol it already has my money from the very first day it was announced, God of War is a Pay a copy of the game type!, you don't critic a God of War game, you just grab it and pay it!!!, yes is that awesome! :D
I own every God of War game, your missing a treat if u haven't played any of the series. Absolutely amazing games:)
My first was GOW3 and it blew my tiny mind. The sheer spectacle of it grabbed me and I loved the fluidity and depth of the gameplay not to mention the brutality. Think I’ve played all of them now, great series.
GOW3 was the first for me as well. The Hades boss fight goes down as one of the best if not the best boss fight in my book .
Yeah I can see why amazing boss fight. My favourite was Poseidon, I think my jaw was literally hanging open at times. Hades next and a shout out to Helios for the way it ended. Cronos’ fingernail too, ouch.
God of War always deserve attention its an amazing series and always delivers.
Sony is trolling us. I can not buy all the games they make. 😱
Lately many developers understood what Horizon Zero Dawn did. I'm seen some influence in Days Gone's game play with bushes and here. Warframe influence is there too. The new element for GoW is the duet gameplay switch. If that is done right, and it will, the game will set a good standard for further iterations of the series. What the game does right is the combination between characters. A fast paced movement of archery and the slow melee ram attack combat. While Horizon Zero relied on micro management on resources for combat, this game uses the context for certain battles. Scripted and unscripted events and the mix of linear and open world instances was the needed update in the series. God of War got the component of a mature script and a diverse library of enemies with different strategies. We will see similarities between Days Gone, God of War, Lost Legacy, Warframe, Horizon Zero Down and Zelda Breath of the Wild despite the natural differences on these titles. All of them are platform action adventure games with RPG elements. Munster Hunter world was a fresh experience that will influence the game play of GoW. We will see changes in the right direction for the series. The developers and Sony are putting a lot of muscle into this title. We will see the work paying off heavy good dividends for them.
