God of War is probably the best game of this generation so far

Forums - Gaming Discussion - God of War is probably the best game of this generation so far

Personally for me, it's in the best of all time. Though i did realise that after around 30 hours the game really burns you out.

Divinity Original Sin 2.

As an Xbox gamer I finally decided to buy a PS4 Pro and got the God of War bundle  and let me say I was truly amazed at how polished the game is in every respect..  I had never witnessed this much detail in a video game since I played Red Dead Redemption when that first came out.   The graphics are amazing, the story is engaging , the voice acting is splendid, the gameplay mechanics above all is outstanding.  And perhaps I will get a lot of hate for saying this but i truly this game is the best Sony exclusive on the PS4 and yes even better than Uncharted 4 (which i had played at my friend's house).  I am not exageratting when I saw how polished this game is,   as a person who dislikes hack and slash games this game kept me engaged the whole time.  It is truly a masterpiece .

What are your first impressions of the game? 

Just like you, I was an Xbox gamer who decided to pick up a PS4 for this game. I have not been disappointed either, and I struggle to see it as a hack and slash as it seems to be more than that (even if that is what it is in principle). 

ive still not quite finished it but yes, so far at least it tops any game I've played in the current generation of consoles. Probably only Breath of the Wilds comes close.



I have (obviously) not beaten every game this gen, but out of all of the ones ive played (quality wise) GOW is the best one, the quality is just everywhere especially on the gameplay where it matters the most.

Nier Automata is still my favorite game though, there is a lot about that game that just resonates with me more, but a lot of that is kind of subjective, spoilers: (like the feelings it gave me at the end and the excitement and adrenaline i felt at certain parts of the game, and i get it that emotions is a very subjective topic what i might have found deeply touching or incredibly exciting will surely not be the same for everyone), its hard to explain but essentially while i loved Automata and i find it more memorable, i cant deny that quality wise GOW is on another league on almost every element except for the OST where i think Automata is actually better (though GOW still has one of the best soundtracks this gen), and story telling (obviously GOW is a masterpiece in this aspect but at the same time Automata did something pretty original in the way it told its story, and i dont think it needs to envy GOW at all).

Great ti hear stories like thisNobody should miss out on this masterpiece if they like the genre. Speaking of which it's a beautiful hybrid between hack and slash and action rpg imo. fy

You should play some hack and slash games. Which ones have you played? You might like them.

God of War and Sony / PS4 stand for quality. It's nice to see how many gamers support such huge projects :)


The game is awesome. And very impressive - but personally, I'm sure that "Detroit Become Human" wants to be my Game of the Year ^^ (at least in the period January - End of May) :) Very exciting - i love AAA-Games.
