Could God of War be PlayStations game of the generation?
It definitely looks to be a contender!
I say Death Stranding could be the one. Then TLOU2
Or Horizon. Or God of War. Or Days Gone. Or Spiderman. Or Uncharted 4. Or Bloodborne. Or Yakuza.
😂😂😂 So none of the games already out is a contender?
^^ I didnt say that? A lot of them are. I just picked my top two?
Really death stranding? A game that’s so early in dev there’s nothing to it at all. There’s no gameplay nothing lool I think you need to get off that Sony fanboy juice. If anything it’s a safe bet that last of us 2 is gonna be the best Sony exclusive this gen. Knowing Kojima, death stranding won’t be out until next gen.
I'm banking on TLOU2.
Did this dude just call Septic a Sony fanboy? OT: I'm playing Frozen Wilds, Bloodborne, and Nioh right now, GoW is gonna have to bring some heat to top these games. That being said, GoW seems to have everything I'm looking for in a game so I don't think my expectations could be any higher.
@ Thundergod: Death Stranding has been in a playable state since at least last year: http://www.metalgearinforme... It just hasn't been shown to the public yet. This E3 is a good bet for gameplay reveal. 'Knowing Kojima' Yeah right.
My game of the generation is already locked on Bloodborne. The competition is who will ultimately be #2.
It looks stellar, I cannot wait to find out. For me, the idea that it could be as high quality a title as the likes of Bloodborne, TLoU, Horizon, Gravity Rush 2, Nier, Persona 5 is very exciting indeed.
There is so many, it's crazy
1886 all the way! So underrated it hurts!
Could be, but there's also TLoU 2 coming...
That's the beauty of Playstation games.. If one sets the bar another one tries to topple that and so on.. I would love see the same thing to happen with GOW followed by Detroit , Spiderman Days Gone LOU2 GOT DS...
I think Death Stranding is going to take the care. It's going to be different from anything we've experienced in gaming!
affrogamer I agree, From what they showed us i understood nothing.. Its gonna be very different and also interesting for sure.. Story heavy for sure...
And ND already proved that they are masters at storytelling and creating characters with TloU which seems the direction SM is going with this new GoW and Santa Monica has yet to prove that they're on the same level. It will be interesting to see if SM is going to give ND a run for their money in the the storytelling department.
Here’s the thing with the last of us though, I didn’t even really care for the characters or story all that much but still loved the game. It has great gameplay and atmosphere, you can’t make a single player game that long that only has story going for it. Story in video games is one of those things that simply enhances the game when done right, it’s not what makes or breaks games for the majority of people.
True. The gameplay was solid in TloU and you can see that not only in the sp campaign but also in the mp portion which was also really good. RaD tried to follow on ND footsteps but they had that attitude that gameplay wasn't as important as storytelling and 1886 was ripped to pieces by the critics as it should. If you want to be as successful as ND was with TloU you have to deliver not only on the storytelling department but also on gameplay.
Having so many good games to choose from, especially when they're primarily coming from first and second party developers, is a GREAT problem to have for a console. I have high hopes for God of War. I wish them the best. I'm working on a project now that I'm finishing the first part of in May. God of War will be my reward. And I'm working hard every night to give myself that reward as soon as possible.
There are more games in the pipeline I know we are excited but Reduce the hyperbole Once the gen is over we can look back
What hee said
The title says, "could". Asking a question is not the definition of hyperbolic, had the author stated 'IT IS the game of the generation' then I'd agree with you as to hyperbole.
I think he is just saying, chill. Let's wait and see. Speculating on how much you personally will enjoy a game is hard enough, speculating on how well the entire playerbase will enjoy a game is even harder.
@Bladesfist And I dont disagree with that aspect at all, my point was to rather it was hyperbole, which its not.
@Bladefist Where is the harm in being excited and discussing the prospect of a game delivering on its promise? It's better than the usual negative, flamebait opinion pieces we see on N4G, surely.
It’s a hyperbolic question to be asking, designed to get people discussing and clicking. I don’t see how posing something as a question makes it not hyperbole.
@ kevnb (noun - definition: exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally) for example making a statement and then trying to present it as fact, so if someone said 'God of War is Playstation's game of the generation', that absolutely would be hyperbolic. Is it too early a question, yes. Does it require total speculation, absolutely. Is it designed to get clicks, this is N4G so most defenitly. But I think its fine that it gets people discussing, theres no harm in that, but its not hyperbole.
Could be. One journalist who's reviewing a game for Gameblog said "he's testing a game right now that might slide in his top 3 games of all time alongside Red Dead Redemption et Castlevania Symphony of the Night", and he's been reviewing games for over 15 years. Might not be God of War, but there's nothing else coming out this month that makes be think it could be anything but. Quote from another trusted long-time reviewer from Italy: "Trust me: you are not ready to hear what I have to tell you. Nobody is ready. Nobody." We still have The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Death Stranding in play though.
Could be GOW because from what i heard Reviewers got the GOW copy on 2nd April ..
It could but I have a high chance that Spider-man will take it.
Or The Last Of Us 2
or GOT OR DAYS GONE or even Detroit :) Playstation and their Exclusives... Take a Bow
My money would be on Spiderman. It just looks like it's f****** fun to play on top of nailing the character of Spiderman. As far as I'm concerned everything they've shown so far looks incredible and as long as the game world has tons of compelling content it'll be an absolute masterpiece.
No offence to Spiderman but Lets be real, Insomniac games are not in the same tier as Naughty Dog or Santa Monica Studio. They might be in the level of Sucker punch or Guerilla games but hell no way spider man will beat God of war.
Highly speculative. While all PS4 exclusives are stellar, let’s just wait and see gameplay.
There’s no such thing as the definitive game of the generation. There’s barely even a definitive game of the year It’s always subjective
You could argue that the last of us was the definitive game of last generation or modern warfare. . .it may always be subjective but only a handful of games reach that level of impact or excellence.
TLoU was definitely the undisputed king of last gen. How do I know that? Well lets put aside the fact that it received the most awards for a single game in, well gaming history it also got into non-gamers radar. Even news mentioned it, I had friends, even colleagues asking what that horror game with the dad and his daughter was all about and that they heard great things about it. Even from people who never held a controller in their hands. It reached public perception to the highest order. It was beyond doubt, THE defining last gen moment by FAR!
No you couldn’t objectively say TLOU is the game of that generation. It’s only a matter of opinion
How about we just let the game come out first?
Exactly. People jump on the hype train after seeing trailers and controlled gameplay. While I do think GOW will be a solid game like all exclusives, things can go south, hopefully they won’t.
When you think this could be PS game of the generation and you still have TLOU2, Ghost of Tsushima, Dreams, etc, you know you are in a good position
It’s got a lot of competition
Simply more than half of PS4 exclusives this gen became Ps4 gen game. Just like how MGS4, HR, UC2, UC3, GOW3, GT5 and TLoU became PS3 gen game.
This or Spiderman. There's also TLOU 2 and Death Stranding.
It's not even out yet
Hence the "could" part.
Hence the pointlessness of the question.
For me it's Bloodborne. But The Last of Us Part II could take that spot.
Persona 5 is the greatest game PS4 will ever get it seems.
Yup and Sea of thieves is the greatest game Xbox one will ever get it seems
Good game. Another exclusive by PlayStation.
Please don't downplay Persona 5. "Good" is not a good enough adjective to describe one of the best jrpgs ever made.
And there wouldn't be anything wrong with it. Games of Persona 5 caliber don't come that often.
Chill. It hasn't even released yet. I'm more excited for Spiderman. I still need to play Horizon Zero Dawn as well. That game looks amazing.
Horizon Zero Dawn was an excellent game. I already have GOW pre-ordered and I can't wait to play it. Also got Spider-Man Collector's Edition on pre-order and considering it will be the first physical copy of a game I have bought this gen for myself should say something. But I think the new direction they are taking with GOW could really put it in the top tier of PS4 titles. It certainly seems like it will top all the ones in the series that came before it. Bottom line Sony is killing it with the exclusives because they allow the studios the freedom to make the games they want. Even if it means turning a series on its head.
Yes for the love of God play Horizon, do it, do it now, you'll thank me later. lol
I know :( I just don't have time to be sucked into a new game. I only buy like 1-3 games a year and I play the crap out of them. Right now I'm still addicted to Rainbow Six Siege and I just got Gran Turismo Sport last week so that's going to eat up my spring and summer. I'm waiting for a sale for HZD Complete. But I'm definitely getting Spiderman at full price (unless the reviews say it sucks).
Hey man take your time and play at your own pace but defenitly get H:ZD in there when you can its one of those must experience games of the generation and certainly worth your time. I cant see Spider-Man getting bad reviews but hey you never know, I'm sure it will get some smear reviews from fanboy haters but that's pretty much par for the coarse with Sony exclusives these days.
No, we already have Nier & Bloodborne :D It can be a close third though xD
For PS users is Win, Win, Win...
The library is getting more an more awesome to be sure :D
I dont think any experience this generation will top Persona 5 for me. I literally sank over 1,000 hours into that game.
I adored Nioh. I'm one last trophy from the platinum and I'm genuinely upset that I'm nearly finished with it.
No need to stop the good times. I've platinumed P5 around the 230 hour mark and still play it religiously, so there's still plenty to get out of it. Same thing with Gravity Rush 2. For me, the hallmark of an outstanding game is being able to revisit it even when there's no incentive to do so other than to just play. I have to say though, you have the entirety of my respect. Ni Oh is nasty work to plat.
I actually have both Persona 5 and Gravity Rush 2 at home to play but haven't yet. I was going to start Persona a while back but the thought of having to invest so much time into it held me off. Then I ended up spending 95 hours on Nioh anyway haha. I loved the first Gravity Rush on Vita. I loaded up Evil Within 2 for the first time last night and well impressed with it.
Finally got mine a couple months ago. It was so much fun just clocking in all the hours for it :D The last one I got was the Twilight rotation one.... took me like a week :P
Yeah that's what has me. I have 1 twilight mission left and I just have to wait for it to cycle around again
If its better than Bloodborne it'll be some achievement. Fingers crossed.
