This is a very tough question that I really don't think I can answer. I absolutely loved Uncharted 4. Especially the ending. Tieing it up with family and the potential for Little Cassie Drake to become a treasure Hunter herself. This is why I think they called it 'A' Thief's End. So that alone excites me probably even a little more than The Last of Us 2. That being said it took me until last year to beat Uncharted 4 which is disraceful to gamers everywhere and have yet to play Lost Legacy. The God of War hype is huge in the house and has been pre-ordered for some time. I think the beauty of the question though is whether you're questioning the hype level of Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War or Spider-Man, all of these are only on PS4. And all get far more conversation than any battle royal game or GaaS.

The Young Guns wouldn't agree with you at all. 

Fortnite is what everyone in the mainstream community is talking about.

I think the conversation will change on 420. 😏



Hard to say without something measurable. If the reviews come out extremely positive, then I think GOW will sell close to UC4 LTD.



God of War is winning the poll because the hype exists right now - people are forgetting just how insane the hype for UC4 was. It was even more than the hype we're seeing for GOW3.

Someone look up sales at launch for U4 and GoW3. I'm too lazy.

I feel like Uncharted was bigger. There were less doubts abput it being a hit too. Though that also has to do with the change in formula of gow, eceryone knew what uncharted would be and it delivered

That looks right.

GoW did not have the massive hype explosion from the announcement as U4 had but it is close to launch equal to above what U4 was.

And Brazil is GoW all over, the thing is very popular around here, GoW and 2 were more pirated than what Uncharted 4 sold, very likely. Everybody's gonna Kratos.



I feel like there is a lot of recency bias here......I remember there being way more hype for Uncharted 4 back in 2016.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Not even close. Uncharted was hyped since day one (PS4’s launch) and was expected to be this generation’s first looker. It also got universal praise. GoW on the other hand received mixed feelings and is coming much later in the cycle.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

From?

And this 'mixed feeling' I keep hearing from people is interesting. Outside of a few naysayers (Uncharted 4 also had those), God of War's previews have been glowing. The only area I've seen Uncharted 4 really take God of War was during the announcement (expected, given it was announced during the PS4's midnight launch).
