If not, try giving it a chance. To call it a movie is simply wrong. Since that was the sentiment of a lot of people on here. The game is nothing like The Last of Us/Uncharted or those types. It's surprisingly big, the combat has lots of options. And man is it hard.

the combat is quite satisfying, and, although I havent beaten it yet I've gotten my fill for the cash I paid

Never gets old recalling the axe. The side content is great. It really is. One in particular is hard as balls. I really enjoyed the story, and the graphics are just amazing. Arguably the best looking game this gen.

I played it a little at my friends house. It was okay, but I’ve never really been interested in that game genre. I just stick to shooters and sandboxes.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
No.

Nothing will ever be more hype than the fight against the Stranger. That's how you start a fucking video game.

Someone actually revealed that the game was actually shit, but apparently the reviewers watched Badmoney and whatever Badmoney touched he turned to gold, that's why it has so much praise 👍

Ill finish the vid later.  But Im half way through and its really hard. Hes not criticising the game on what it is, hes judging it based on its predecessors, and honestly isnt even in the same type of genre. God of 4 is more or less a Story driven Souls Like experience.

While the old ones were fast based hack and slash, which really seem like his jam. Cool he wasnts that, it isnt here, you want a story with some moderately fast melee combat here you go. But he seems to want more of the old and less of something new.

Ill edit this when I watch the rest later.

He's not at all averse to non fast paced games at all.What he does not like are overly cinematic games. Case and point: Metroid. He loves Prime which is as slow paced a shooter as you'll ever find but he hates Other M despite it being a fast paced hack and slash inspired game for being overly cinematic and having the most shallow combat imaginable.

But Im not finding that in my experience, its cinematic sure, but I never feel like Im watching a movie and being taken out of the game, and it doesnt have anywhere near as much slow walking as The Last of Us.

But I guess a games enjoyment is subjective based on interests . Which he being the example doesnt like the storytelling experience some games offer.

Because making story telling the primary focus in an interactive medium in an attempt to legitimise said medium is the most counter-intuitive and, at the risk of sounding grandiose, disrespectful approach to game making there could possibly be. The story should only ever service the gameplay, NOT the other way around. Kratos walks around slowly to let you know "Hey, this is an emotional moment you brain-dead ape, don't walk too fast now!" You have these context-sensitive button presses that wrestle control away from the player to show off the animators hard work and sell the "Wow, so cool, it's just like Hollywood" effect, and JUMPING is one of them.

These devs are just so soulless and insecure about video games, man. It's super sad to see.

So you did read what I said when I say the game doesnt do that right?

Theres one section where youre carrying a pig and the game slows down....thats it, and its because youre carrying dying Pumba.

If you played the game youd see that the story does service the gameplay, as the gameplay never stops to tell a story it all happens at the same time. Although my one gripe...which I am probably contradicting myself is the climbing....there's only painted sections where you can climb, like sure youre climbing a mountain so thats expected and there is banter on the way but you just point in a direction and he climbs, but they are only short periods and the game doesnt just make you slow to a walk cause 'world building'

But really. Combo throwing the axe and returning it and flinging it straight back like an OP Thor is a pretty fucking fun experience.

It does. I've seen it. This is not up for debate.

You don't even know what "service" means. Yes, the game does stop to tell a story, but that's not even what I'm talking about.

It's akin to dangling keys in front of an infant. There's no substance there.

Well, for those that have played it... Anyone been to Muspelheim? Some of it is so hard, and the 8 Valkyries... My God. I hate to, but I gotta drop the difficulty.

Evidently he has not gotten far into the video since Britt talks about how shallow the combat is

There's a lot more to it than the originals. More to it than a lot of newer games really.

Hats off to Mimir, carrying the proud tradition of being carried by Kratos.

Speaking of the axe, throwing and catching it is a joy that should have lost its novelty at some point, but strangely and wonderfully never did.

You guys are coming off kinda pretentious. I've been watching this dude stream it and the only slow parts I've seen are few and far between with them mostly being puzzles and then there's a lot of combat. I don't really see how the combat is shallow per se, but then I don't know anything about the older God of War games and what the combat was like in that. So maybe I'm wrong, but the game looks fun to me.

Have any of you actually watched somebody play this game, or just some guy's review on YouTube? Because we all know how an edited video can make anything look bad or at least much worse than it already is, and how jaded people can get reviewing games.
