This week's question concerns another notable Sony first party IP.

...

Bonus question: What are your hopes and expectations for the upcoming God of War: Ragnarök?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

My favorite GoW is definitely the 2018 version. I didn't think I would like it at first because they changed the formula. Seeing as I love the hack n' slash genre and love greek mythology, this series was up my alley. GoW3 was my favorite up until the recent one.

With the upcoming game, I expect more or less the same as the last game. Great gameplay and a fantastic conclusion to end the Norse chapter of the series.

I'd be happy with more of the same and just a bit of evolution. Same base gameplay, but with a few new moves and abilities and areas. I loved the last one so much I'd be happy with more of that, please. 

Like a good steak, I wanna return to the store for more of that steak.

God of War (2018), I'm not a fan of the genre it was before. Bayonetta/DMC/God of War aren't my thing. But the reboot was one of my favourite games of the generation.



2018 is the only one I've played and it was very good. I enjoyed the narrative & dialogue, there were some great characters, and the voice acting was excellent. And it was very pretty obviously.

As for Ragnarok, I was a little bit disappointed by the trailer. It looked like God of War (2018) 1.5 - a very safe sequel of the sort you'd expect within a single generation. Maybe that's a by-product of needing to get it running on the PS4, but if that's the case then I wish they'd made it PS5 exclusive and really tried to push boundaries.

2018 easily, followed by 3, 1, Ascension and II. Never played the other 2 games.

Bonus: More of the same tbh. 2018 was fantastic.



Easily 2018/4. I was never really interested in the series before that point, but the combination of Norse mythology, Kratos' improved character design, less hectic combat, and Christopher Judge (Teal'c from Stargate) voicing Kratos won me over on 2018/4, and I thoroughly enjoyed playing it.

Yeah, it definitely looked more like an expansion than a sequel, graphically speaking. It's especially disappointing that they didn't go all out and make it PS5 exclusive since they are now suggesting that it is the final game in the Norse story arc, as opposed to it being the 2nd game in a trilogy. I suppose using this approach did allow them to develop it faster though, it is looking like it will release a bit more than 4 years after God of War 2018, and that is with Covid taken into account, it probably would have only taken 3 years were it not for Covid. A proper sequel built from the ground up for PS5 would have taken at least 5 years with covid taken into account.

Well, considering this was originally conceptualized as an expansion but was too ambitious to be DLC so they turned it into a full game...

2018 for sure, love the setting, combat (seriously that returning axe, so good!) and story. Easily my game of the generation.

Expect to see more of the same from the first game, and possibly larger in terms of explorable areas. The rest of the Norse story with Kratos/Atreus and some epic fights - even more-so than the first. Hoping for bigger (scale) and badder boss battles like of the previous games. And a new weapon or two like a spear or bow. From the trailer there are new shields in the game.
