God of War 4 is the best video game on the PS4. Here’s a few things that back this up by looking at everything from its bloody combat to Kratos and other strong characters.
I agree with the article, but I think the one thing God of War did very well that made it such a success was innovation. It breathed new life into an old franchise. Not many games have been able to do that successfully. I still remember the epic-fail reboot attempts like Medal of Honour War fighter, and X-com:The Bureau.
I liked GoW a lot and it was only the second game I got the platinum for but for me the best game exclusive to the PS4 is Bloodborne. Better and more varied combat, far better boss fights and more interesting environments and lore.
"the best game exclusive to the PS4 is Bloodborne" ***ATOMIC FISTBUMP***
It just is, isn't it.
It just is. Nothing I've played on the PS4 has been more fun than Bloodborne. Just a very special game.
I really enjoyed Bloodborne, Until Dawn and Persona 5 (not really exclusive) were flawless PS4 exclusive games. GoW was a really good game and I enjoyed it but I had my criticisms that kept it from being up there with the likes of the games I just mentioned.
@gangsta_red It is a "Playstation" exclusive. We love playing those games right?
@AsunaYuukiTheFlash Lol, i keep forgetting the disclaimers for exclusives nowadays. I personally enjoyed those games, yes.
My criticism is the kid. He's annoying in combat. Stand back, shut up, and fire your arrows. I thought he was a little batshit when he started carving up that troll - kid just got really aggressive out of nowhere.
@Synthetic "kid just got really aggressive out of nowhere." Definitely one of my criticisms of the game was the kid. Very annoying during the middle of the game.
I fucking love Bloodborne!!! But GOW's combat though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bloodborne has better gameplay
I agree that GoW was spectacular. I personally prefer the original combat, design, and boss fights though. Original GoW had so much more variety and combo's with its weapons, and power moves/combos weren't locked behind cool downs. GoW recycled a lot of the same fights and the dark elfs are just boring characters. But the enemy and boss fights can definitely improve. Hopefully more weapons are introduced as well, the axe just felt so boring. Once I got my blades back that's pretty much all I used unless I HAD to use the axe.
Here's an unpopular opinion. I loved both the old and new GOW combat systems. GIVE ME MORE GOW BABY!
GoW was a great game, but the lack of enemies and the recycled bosses is what kept it from being a classic entry in the series. The kid got annoying too during the middle of the game when he finds out his godhood, he goes from 0 to 100 in that span and was just annoying to see until Kratos puts him in his place then he goes back to chill mode which was hilarious. I do love the open world HUB style which I personally think should become more of a standard more than a completely open world especially for action style arcade like games. It'll be interesting to see where this story goes for the sequel with the introduction of Thor and hopefully Odin which was built up so much in this game to not even get a glimpse (until the very, very end of course). And then of course you have Kratos's son who we all now know who he really is, how will that play out?
Awful Might as well just say "does good stuff"
#1 should be AA. Sharpest game on ps4(pro)
I had the most fun with Spiderman out of the PS4 exclusives so far followed by bloodborne, Spiderman has more raw fun whilst God Of War has better storytelling imo
Hated Atreus though such a whiny annoying partner
I played for about 8 hours and then traded it in towards Wolfenstein: Youngblood when it came out. Ended up putting about 40 hours into Wolfenstein and loved every minute. No regrets.
One of my favorite games of all time. That combat system is superb!
