Opinion of the new God of War game?
I haven’t played it, in fact I’ve never played any God of War game but I’ve seen some trailers for it and a bit of gameplay and I reckon it looks pretty fun, I’m generally a bit ehh about AAA games ‘cause I think they try a bit much to be as linear and film-like as they can (cutscenes with quick-time events are my sworn bloody enemy..!) and I generally feel as though more effort is put into the visuals and driving the player down a track where they’re guaranteed to see all the pretty, carefully textured set pieces than into the story and writing. I mean, I can and do still enjoy them but as a very story-focused gamer I just find them a little overhyped and ultimately hollow. I prefer a bit more player-choice, exploration, rich dialogue (preferably with multiple options but not necessary) and general freedom – Fallout: New Vegas, for example, remains one of my all-time favourite games that I still play and enjoy
