lmao could've fooled me, you react extremely poorly and constantly bring up sales figures and user reviews and shit like any of that matters. it's obvious after spending 10 minutes with your average person that most people are stupid and should be ignored about everything, popularity never has a relationship with quality given the extreme amount of knuckle dragging mouth breathing troglodytes out there.


So if sales figures don't matter, and user reviews don't matter, and professional reviews don't matter (in the context of determining the quality of a game)...what DOES matter? :hmm:

i played the old games, i feel "Old Man Kratos" is really no different than "Old Man Logan" vs Wolverine

both work fine in their context


Yeah, Kratos was a psychotic jackass in his youth. He got older, matured, mellowed out a bit. It's not that much of a stretch. Especially considering that he has a REASON to reign it in now. Kratos in the old games was a character who had lost everything he cared about and had nothing left but vengeance. Now he has something to protect and hang onto again.

HZD story was better hands down because of the mystery. IMO just about everything else about the 2nd game was better

for GOW i feel Ragnarok is better one every front


I would say that I enjoyed the characters more in HFW. Their portrayal in terms of writing and "acting" (both in terms of the voice work and the character animation, ESPECIALLY the faces) was vastly improved. You're right that it didn't have that mystery behind the plot, and the twist they came up with this time around was definitely a little "out there" and maybe didn't resonate over the creeping dread that was felt in the gradual realization of what happened to the world in the first game. But you can't really replicate something like that. I agree that in all aspects related to gameplay, quality of life and presentation HFW was an improvement.

For me though, it's really Aloy's story. I was hooked on her character from the very beginning of HZD, so as long as her story remains compelling to me, I'm invested in the games.

It does mostly work but there were some moments in 2018 where I felt they went a little too hard on the sentimentality (or maybe just did it too quickly). By the halfway mark I was pretty much all in on sad old Kratos

I think by the end of the original trilogy I just disliked Kratos' characterization so much (was he justified in hating the gods? Maybe...but he was just such an irredeemable asshole :rofl: ) that I found it refreshing to have a version of the character who I could actually sympathize with occasionally. :hs:
