    Maybe is just me but GoW felt like another game was being made and then Sony turned it into GoW because it's a known franchise

      I don’t agree at all. Maybe it’s just because I watched so much stuff about it’s development. I had ZERO interest in another God of War game, I just didn’t see how it could move forward. I enjoyed the series but felt it was played out. Then the reviews started coming out and the developers were able to share a lot about the game now that it was released.
      I watched and read so much about the passion they still had for the franchise. They fought hard to be able to convince Sony that it was a game worth making. The devs felt there was more to Kratos’ story yet to be told. In order for it to succeed they knew that it couldn’t just be more of the same. They had to create something fresh.
      I’m so glad they pushed to make this game as it was easily the best game I played in 2018. You could tell just how much energy and passion was poured into it. I loved seeing an older, more mature Kratos and exploring his character development. I can’t wait to see what they do with the sequel.

    "And adds some new ones, like being able to switch characters with the press of a button."
    Dunkey, my dude, did you forget Castlevania III for the NES which had that exact mechanic between Trevor, Syfa, Grant, and Alucard?
    Or for that matter, Dawn of Sorrow that had Alucard mode, where you'd play as Alucard, Yoko, and Julius with that exact same mechanic.
    Where it mostly turned into "Switch to yoko and spam magic attacks to win".

    2019 so far.
    Xbox: We get crackdown 3, metro exodus, and more games for gamepass.
    In call of duty BO4 we have gotten Hijacked and grand heist along with news of much more to come very soon hopefully. We get new guns in WW2 and Nintendo announces crossovers with Xbox.
    Nintendo: we get our much waited direct and definitely fan serviced. We got Tetris 99, dameon X Machina prototype mission and FFIX all in the same day as the direct.
    2017 was the year for Nintendo.
    2018 was the year for PlayStation
    Although crackdown and metro have been slightly disappointing they aren’t bad by any means. We are getting much more content to come and with Nintendo’s insane hype for smash, Mario, Zelda, daemon x machina, fire emblem, and many many more. With Xbox coming to the switch and a true partnership I feel this year will not only be Nintendo’s time to shine yet again but now Xbox gets its light. These two companies are going to shape the gaming wave of 2019.
    Anthem was a sad sad beta but for it to be something new and fresh breath of a decent iron man simulator game it’s good. As a huge fan of Destiny and bungie in general it’s really good to see EA take a hit. We’ve seen just how shit EA has been in the past. Aside from the shitty loot boxes their games have been overall good and balanced. All their games share one thing though. They all act as if they aren’t finished yet. Battlefront was good and battlefront 2 didn’t add much to that. It felt unfinished and all that EA wanted to do to fix it was add loot boxes. Anthem feels different personally.
    I love the fact that indies will also be getting some light this year. We get more Hollow Knight content and rumored Shovel knight 2.
    Along with the much anticipated release of Doom Internal I can’t wait to see a Multiplayer experience for many soon to come games between Xbox and switch. Doom 2016 had an amazing switch port and it didn’t seem logically fucking possible for it to be that good on such a weak console in retrospective to its competitors. Minecraft is going to improve and now worlds can be played between Xbox and switch. WITHOUT REALMS!
    Much new content is expected to come and for the first half of 2019 everything looks good. Right now PS4 is doing good for it’s monthly games and it’s online subscription, however Nintendo and Microsoft have shown us too much goods to come that if PS4 wants to compete for another best year they’re gonna have to release something truly remarkable.
    As a huge fan of PlayStation I can honestly say one thing that would get them somewhere is Diablo 4. The next Diablo game for mobile is a decent yet terrible idea. If Diablo 4 is coming then Sony should buy rights to it as an exclusive. Games that could make them big this year are as follows if they have chances of reveals or if they could be real. These games are all personal wants.
    Horzion Zero Dawn 2, Last of us 2, dying light 2 (this ones real and if it’s as big as we think it could really help PlayStation this year if it’s to release this year) Another God Of War or a remaster, Bloodborne 2, and many more I hope to see. I know many of these won’t happen this year and that is why I feel Xbox and switch have this year in the bag.
    PlayStation ruled last year and I hope Nintendo and Microsoft deliver.
    If you read all this thank you, and you are a real goat honestly. Reply to me and tell me your thoughts and hopes for 2019!

      No it's not. It's not even a God of War game, just a generic action adventure game with restrictive gameplay and a story that tries to seem interesting but just comes off as dull and pretentious.
