Not the god you once knew - why God of War is a GOTY contender already

God of War releases this month (April) and Red Bull Games Australia has been "slaving over it" to deliver you a breakdown of just why this might already be 2018’s Game of the Year. Read on to learn why…

The story is too old to be commented.

Imagine that person who pre-ordered GoW and his PS4 breaks on the launch eve ... 😵

Why would you jinx me like that!? LOL
My launch day PS4 still alive and kicking like a beast. Gets dusted every other weekend.

My pro had gaven that bad joke of being bootless machine then out of nowhere its just run back normaly after 10 mins, so yeah I had got this aweful feeling and I hope no one have to experience it.

Judging by the review scores I would say GOW is more than a contender.

billythepunk185d ago (Edited 185d ago )

The rest of the year and its releases still need to play out. It’s April, not December. Plenty of great gaming still on the horizon, so yes it’s still a contender.

Inzo185d ago

Well that depends on your point of view. My point of view is that no other game will reach a 95 avg score, so yes its more than a contender.

No room in there, at least, for Red Dead Redemption 2?

Hey Billy, thanks for slaving over GOW for us, it must have been quite the hardship lol

I hope RDR2 does get scores like GOW has received, but - R* reviewers pass notwithstanding - I'm not confident it will. We'll see!

Inzo185d ago

I did take RDR2 into account and it will undoubtedly score high but even if it can match GOW I dont think it will release in time for award season.

Why people assume games released during the Christmas season are more likely to be goty is beyond me. The year consists of 12 months. Gow will still be talked about.

I don’t understand articles like this. There were ones for Zelda last year too. Like...of course, when a game is being called “best of a generation”, it is gonna be a GotY contender.

I heard the game is demolishing Gamestop’s Personal sales projections; something 200%+ above reserves expectation.
