Should've gone before we left.

I think it's more along the lines of Sony wanting a new God of War, because it's God of War, and Santa Monica Studios having no choice but to comply, but atleast trying to take it into a different direction.stroopwafel said:I doubt there are many people who play God of War for its literary qualities. The new game seems much like they tinkered with the formula a bit then stuck with God of War b/c of brand recognition(make Kratos look old with a beard to explain away any inconsistencies).Casual Shinji said:I'm not making excuses for his character in the previous games, I'm just saying that by the looks of it the developers are aware what an irredeemable piece of shit he was. And that instead of ignoring it for a reboot, they decided to use it as a jumping-off point to try and give the guy back some humanity.
Whether they have the writing chops to achieve that is another question.
The game itself does look pretty good though. Like less of a button masher than the previous games and I can appreciate the change in scenery as well.
