In the last third of the game (plus end game content) it is basically the exact same as the previous GOW games as far as hack and slash goes. For those that have played the first half and say they know enough to make a judgement, it changes.

This.

You played it?

Gotta love the rhetoric of "you must play x amount of this game before you can say anything negative."  Let's say I have, anyone who disagrees would still disagree.  So what's the difference?  Why do I need to experience a janky, wonky, too close camera with shitty lock on when I can clearly see it in a youtube video?  Do I need to play every Call of Duty to know it's "just another Call of Duty"?  That's what video footage of gameplay and reviews are for.

Because your reasoning is full of shit.The camera is not wonky and lock on is optional.Add to the fact that you complain about shoulder buttons,when you can't remap every single button on the ps4 if the game allows it or not.

Just because something is optional doesn't mean it's implementation is immune to criticism.

A few mins of edited gameplay in a youtube vid or review is nothing compared to playing it for a while. There's not really any comparable games to it so your cod example doesn't apply here. That's just like a virgin claiming he or she knows what sex is like by watching clips of porn or reading reviews/sex stories.

When you've compared your argument about video games to human intimacy, it makes me wonder why I even bother.

I get the feeling you haven’t played the new GoW, let alone finished it. I’ve seen you make a couple odd comments now against this game, some obvious, some a bit more stealthy. One of them u said GoW will likely do lifetime sales of 7-8 mil bc of its sales of 3.1 mil in 3 days. And if you know anything about sales at all, you would know that is a ridiculous statement. GoW is more likely to sell 15 mil than it is to sell 7-8 mil.

I’d like to hear your explanation as to how the camera is “janky.”

See my post above.  TLDR: one doesn't have to play every second of a game to know it's not for them.  

If we're talking about my comments on the sales, I based my statement on past series sales.  What are you basing yours on?  Because games can sell loads in their first and even second week, then fall off a cliff.  Monster Hunter World in the US and Dragon Quest XI in Japan if you need references.

The camera is janky upon hit animations.  First it freezes upon impact, then rocks and jitters to give off a sense of intensity.  Because the camera is so close, it gives off almost a motion sickness effect.

Can't address my point? I'll take that as you backing down.

Ooo you made me back down.  Such a strong alpha male.  <3

I addressed your point without addressing you.  Read some posts without ctrl+F "Aeolus" and you can find it.

The "king of hack n' slash games has finally returned"?.

I don't really see it as being the so called king of that genre, and the latest iteration isn't as hack n' slash as it used to be. Certainly not on the same level as Bayonetta.

I don't see this game "influencing" future hack n' slash games.

The term is reserved to the game with the best rating and the best sales; so yeah it is God of War.

I'd like to know this myself, since it sounds obnoxiously made up.
