Well, like I said some reboots do work and GOW is a good example. I think the difference with GOW is that while it's an old franchise, there have been only 3 GOW games since the ps1.

Not really taking a side in this argument but just wanted to clear up some misinformation. 

God of War has had 4 mainline entries since 2005 (near the end of the PS2 era) when the first one came out. 

  • God of War (PS2) in 2005
  • God of War 2 (PS2) in 2007
  • God of War 3 (PS3) in 2010
  • God of War (PS4) in 2018

But in addition to that it has had 4 side games.

  • God of War: Betrayal (Mobile) in 2007
  • God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) in 2008
  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta (PSP) in 2010
  • God of War: Ascension (PS3) in 2013

And this excludes the numerous re-releases and remasters.
