Just a few days ago, Sony delivered a brand new story trailer for God Of War 4 and also gave us a release date which is this April. Seeing Kratos in a new setting and being a father is very different to the Kratos that we have come to know and love, but there is certainly a familiarity there and God Of War 4 is one of my most wanted games of 2018.
Watching this trailer also brought back some memories of how I got into the God Of War series. I did not actually play the first game until 2006 as in 2005 I had just graduated from University and it took me a while to find a job, well one day I was in a local game store and they had a used copy for really cheap, it was around £15 which was pretty cheap as the game had not been out that long. I picked it up and I played the hell out of that game. It was so cinematic, so badass and I just loved the character of Kratos.
That first game laid the foundation for what the series would become and while some argue the game has not changed a whole lot, I for one actually like that as the hack and slash, beat em up style gameplay is something God Of War does better than any other game. For me, the best game in the series has to be God Of War 2, but truth be told, I have loved them all, even the two games on the PSP, which by the way you can pick up on the PlayStation 3. As a matter of fact, apart from the upcoming God Of War 4. You can play the whole God Of War saga on PlayStation 3 and it is well worth doing so.
The weirdest game in the Call Of Duty series is God Of War 3 Remastered on the PlayStation 4. As a huge fan of the series I had to get this day one, but it felt a very weird game to remaster as God Of War 3 is one of the best looking games on the PlayStation 3. It looks even better on PlayStation 4 and it moves even faster which makes for a more fun experience.
God Of War 4 looks amazing and while some people who have no jumping into the series will look at it as just a hack and slash game. While the gameplay in God Of War is a major reason so many of us love the series. I would bet that the majority of hardcore God Of War fans love the series because of Kratos and his quest for vengeance and redemption.
