God of War II Interview

In the course of a fascinating and often hilarious interview, the dynamic God of War II duo have much to unload including a host of new details on how Kratos will evolve in the sequel, their ideas on improved combat, magic and combolicious new moves, building better bosses and how they'd love to see the story unfold over a trilogy of titles.
Cory and Derek also discuss their ideas on a next-gen version, how the series might be brought onto PSP, God of War's multiplayer potential and finally, their plans for a sequel on Gizmondo if somehow, impossibly, GoW II doesn't work out on PS2 [one of those statements is a bit of a fib obviously].

How does Kratos' own personal storyline develop in God of War II? Will we see his story unfold over a classic trilogy?

Cory Barlog: "I would love to see a trilogy happen. Dave [Jaffe] and I have a pretty similar view as to where the story of Kratos should go and it does play itself out in a trilogy but there are no trilogy plans as of right now. We are telling the continuation of Kratos life as we left off from the first game. The story in God of War II will begin to show a larger view of Kratos' role within the mythological world."

I loved the first one and I know this sequel would be absolutely fantastic. Even if they didn't make a sequel, the first one to me was a complete classic from beginning to the end. No matter what type of fan you're if you played the first God of War you would know exactly what I'm talking about.

I don't know about 20, but I know Dragon Quest VIII, FFXII, and Persona 3 are my top 3.

No particular order. Not a huge JRPG guy, but these hit it home for me.

Fairly solid list, would only change a few, I'd put onimusha in there, ico, personally would have vice city.

Then again I'd double up on some series dmc 1, all 3 gtas, both metal gears, all 3 jaks.

Ps2 was just crazily stacked really, every time I think back on it, those were the good days of gaming.

Was thinking the same about Vice City. But yeah, solid list and great era of games!
