Uh huh, just because I find the slow paced story driven game kinda boring.

Frankly, maybe it did deserve it. I need to look at the full list of what released in 2019. I rather play RDR or Odyssey, but thats my personal taste.

Did you really only play a few hours of GoW? If yes, you should play more. It opens more and more, and gets less story driven the more you progress. Well, it's still story driven, but you can explore and fight for hours before going back to the story, and the story itself is way faster after a while.

You also have different kinds of trials focused only on gameplay, and it's just a joy to play it.


I didn't play RDR2 yet, but I've read several reviews complaining about it being a documentary, with hours doing nothing, and very slow and outdated/awkward gameplay. From what I've seen, RDR2 wins on the world offered and cinematic feel, GoW wins easily on the gameplay part. 

I do love the slow paced gameplay but its understandable it can be a personal negative, the game as a whole is innovating for the genre and it's for a big part next level and a build up from games like The witcher 3 that also did the open world nicely in my opinion and the only thing about this game that annoys me is how the clumsiness of animation from the main character can get into the way of needingly fast reaction when doing missions .I heard some complains about the length of the game that i do find a noncomplaint myself, as for me its a lengthy enjoyment and if i need i will just take a break and play other games in between.

I also would have liked more options to spend money and change the world around you with money like lets say investing it in property and/or remaining militia.

So yeah overall i really really enjoy this game and it does deserve a lot of praise for the things that make it shine.
