I actually never played God of War. Not a hack and slash player for the most part. And I went mostly of gameplay videos to make that decision. 

Based on gameplay videos I think this might be a game for me. So I am getting it. 

It will be my 1st GoW but I am not too worried about not getting the story or something based on what I have read the previous games were not too deep in that area so probably not missing much.

The GoW franchise actually has a surprisingly good story that has quite a bit to it. The reason the past games don't get much credit for their story is because of their over the top cartoon-ish characterizations. Especially of Kratos. 

This is something people who only watch snippets of the game on Youtube will never understand.

The cartoonishly over the top nature of the characters is both explained by the story itself and by the source material. God of War accurately represents the tone and characters in the Greek mythology.

I do agree with this.

Ignoring the bickering, seems like everyone is enjoying the game. You cannot get everyone to like a particular game. Mario O was the shit and Zelda BotW was not my cup of tea (very alluring game). This God of War is getting reviews from 8-10.

This God of war get 8~10 on over 101 reviews,it is a masterpiece.

I don't really care either way personally. It's all about the game feel for me. Story and graphics are a bonus, if good, and ignored if not.

If you don't care why were you answering on it?

Because I felt like it? Didn't realize I needed a written reason to make a comment in a forum. :P

So don`t be dismissive when you do it or receive reply.

Got the platinum and now I can say with certainty that the game is one amongst the best of the generation for me. Top tier game, my favourite sony exclusive of this gen and quiet possibly of all time. The foundation has been lain for the possibly the greatest game trilogy Sony will ever produce, perhaps. Look out TLoU2, you won't have it so easy.
