Game director David Jaffe reveals that the original God of War 2005 was considered for a first-person viewpoint.
Im very glad it did not end up that way. In first person you would lose the scale the game has. That is something i really appreciate about the GoW games is the immense size and scale of the environments and how the camera zooms out to show it in a much grander view.
Those epic set pieces would have gone unnoticed
In GOW3 they did an homage to the fact it was supposed to be an FPS by putting you in first person right at the end, swinging your blades and bashing Zeus' face till the screen completely goes red.
One of the unlockables in the original God of War was a first person representation of God of War. A consideration for a spin-off/sequel was presented as a FPS in modern times. The military finds the dead Titan (Chronos I believe) and goes into the mountains where Kratos found Pandora's Box. Very interesting idea and gave me Clive Barker Jericho vibes.
Barf I wouldn’t of played it!
would love an arena based moba FPS in the GOW universe
Don't leave out a deck-building system and Kratos' fetch quests. "Make love to 12 different harpies".
Maybe the Egyptian era for the PS6 would switch to first-person just to keep things fresh
The first trilogy i couldnt imagine in 1st person nor would i want to play it. . Now 2018 i honestly could see it 1st person BUT id really only be interested in playing if it was vr.
can't even imagine it! it would have been an entirely different game entirely. Gald he came back to his senses.
