Frame of reference, it is a fact of human life. God of War like DMC and NG is a superior game which means within the genre it sits at the top, even though other top level games do certain things better than God of War. As for God of War setting a new standard for Brawlers I would have to disagree since most of the top level games play so differently from each other.AC10 said:I still don't see how God of War is the standard. I always figured everyone agreed DMC was the standard. Why is God of War the standard? Do we have a committee to decide these things? DMC had locked cameras, and IMO it's combat is superior to God of War's in every single way.
Why would I have what, in my eyes is an inferior game as the standard which to set everything?
Also, let's be fair. God of War is VERY similar to Rygar. What's that? You haven't played it? How about you let these two chaps put it in perspective for you:
God of War did NOTHING original.
Yet it's constantly hailed as amazing and every game that's LIKE God of War is ostracized because of it's similarities. Why, then, does God of War get off scot fucking free?
I just literally cannot believe people simply IGNORE things like this. Not even just casual players. Members of the press should KNOW these things, they should have played these games. I can't possibly be the only person whose recognized the similarities of God of War and Rygar and it just blows my mind that people whose job it is day in and day out to write about video games just don't KNOW about these games. You should! Even if you haven't played them, you should know they exist. They aren't hiding, they aren't unknown.
How do these things happen? I'm really losing my faith in gamers of all walks of life.
