God of War 2018

Agent D.:
Holy hell this game is astoundingly pretty. Like amazingly so. Also it's really a great game overall. They make Kratos seem so much more fleshed out as a character. Also should mention it's pretty heavy on rpg elements, but I put it here since Zno onr thinks of rpgs when they see God of War.

Anyone playing this besides me?

I'm glad people are enjoying it, but God of War has never been my thing, and none of the videos actually looked enjoyable. I prefer my hack 'n' slash games to be faster-paced and combo-focused, and that seems to have been downplayed far more than even the PS2 games...it does make me want to try God of War III, though...

I mean I only played GoW 1 for a short stint as a teen, wasn't fond of it. That being said, this game feels more skillful in the action department. Parrying and timed evasions are you friend, and you can't just go all willy nilly with crazy attacks. I'm almost considering saying it's similar to dark souls in terms of combat precision, but that's a stretch at it's best. Not gonna lie, this is easily the game to beat this year imo.

And that's the problem I have with it! That's what I want from my Hack 'n' Slash games! I DON'T want Dark Souls! I mean, I don't mind dodges and blocking, but I don't feel like the combat in God of War 2018 really seems to incorporate them in such a way that it won't slow down the flow of an aggressive assault, even if you know what you're doing. But please, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. If I haven't made this clear yet, I honestly feel like Hack 'n' Slash games dried up outside of one singular company...and Dynasty Warriors, but I always felt like those games were too monotonously easy to play outside of short bursts, and DW9 looks like a trainwreck...more to choose from would be welcome.
