It seems very clear that you haven’t played the new GoW. This is nothing compared to the old games. I could never like them due to the excessive violence. Conversely, the new GoW is likely my favorite game of the entire gen.
But it carries the name. People know the name. The series has a reputation that we're not about to forget any time soon. That reputation will make people not care about it and avoid it.
And i am currently playing it, and it's still violent as ever. It's just more "artsy" now.
