    God of War

    So I looked and didn't see it... is there not a thread for this game?
    It's incredible. Ball-bustingly difficult if you want it to be, still engaging on lower difficulties, and it's absolutely beautiful. I've been playing it non stop and while I think I'm nearing the end, I guess I'm only upset that it's ending soon, even though there's seemingly tons of side-content to dive into afterwards.

    The combat is fine tuned to a degree you just don't see in mainstream AAA "blockbuster" titles; it's perfect. If you dive in and learn it the game makes you feel like a badass. It's almost like a mashup of the combat from the previous games, the Batman games, and Dark Souls.

    This game is glorious. I wish there was an online component, but whatever. This is an experience. Get it.

    Really? Most hated the online in Ascension.

    I plan to buy this game but would rather save money now and buy it when it hits 50% off or buy the GOTY (whichever comes first). Enjoyed the other games in the series but I'm not entirely sold on the Norse choice going forward since it just sounds like an easy way out to make more sequels since they made him kill every Greek God imaginable.

    Looking to buy it sooner rather than later.

    Been playing it almost nonstop. It's great. Have a feeling I'm probably close to end.

    Well, just because they screwed it up in the past doesn't mean they can't do it right this time... Ascension's online was dire, but this just feels like such an open and amazing world it's sad to not be able to share it with friends, like Dark Souls.


    I love this game though. It's great, and I'm surprised there isn't more discussion here, because it's almost certainly going to end up near the top of most GOTY lists.

    Finished. Still have a ton left to do. It was amazing. Look forward to the inevitable sequel.

    I guess it depends on how much you game, but the PS4 has a pretty great lineup by this point.

    There's a major tone-shift in the new God of War game. It's more serious, and not as silly and preposterous as the previous games. They've also toned back the ludicrous over-violence of the earlier games. The combat/pacing is also completely rebuilt.

    But if we were talking about a single game to sell someone on the system, Bloodborne is the best game of all time, OF ALL TIME!

    It's a more serious game. Tons of character development. Every character feels fleshed out and have identity. Not one character that I feel was just thrown in for the hell of it. The controls take some getting used to. Reminds me a bit of Bloodborne. The world(s) are fleshed out where you actually want to travel and find what else is out there. The side missions aren't half assed either. They're also fleshed out and have actual thought and consideration in them. They don't feel like throwaway side banter like most games.

    This is probably going to be end up game of the year. I just don't see many other games competing with this. Only game that might be able to compete is Kingdom Hearts. But I doubt that. Not sure what else really comes out this year tbh.

    got the platinum trophy... I loved the main game, but felt the end-game content was kind of tacked on after promising something that seemed much more comprehensive than it really turned out to be. A lot of the OCD appeal came down to hunting ridiculously hidden ravens, and then you start to really feel how slow those elevators move...

    The game itself is amazing. The end game padding is a 6/10

    Been playing the third one for a couple of days now. I studied a lot of Greek history/mythology in school/university. So it's fun to see how they used all this stuff in the game and how they portray it.

    I'm currently playing the first one (for the first time.) It's amazing. I stay about 10 years behind on video games and save a lot of money.

    Fantastic reboot of a fantastic series.I was worried that it would be not as good as the previous trilogy, but it is even better I think. I love the new combat system, I like Boy and I absolutely love how they transferred Kratos to the new mythology.
    There is one downside though - boss fights. There were only a couple of them - I really wanted more and I hope we will get more boss fights in the sequel.

    I already can't wait to play the sequel.
