      agreed. every woke moron cant help but reiterate that this is supposed to be a "mature" kratos and how were all happy that he is more tame.
      old god of war games are kino, im tired of this woke messaging being the fuel to the fall of the god of war franchise.
      it started with cucking kratos, now its about blacking the franchise.

        it was a great game, but not a great action game. it's action is just competent enough to not be a complete eyesore for the entirety of your playthrough and that's it. it doesn't belong on the list next to all the other games there.

      People are obsessed with it because of cinematic stuff like the QTE "fight" against Metal Gear Ray and the soundtrack. Basically GoW2018 for people that think they are too "cultured" for GoW2018.

        not sure what marginal difference there is because I seriously haven't noticed jackshit, only that they just keep sending more waves after you defeated one and shit gets monotonous fast since this game has no way to get crazy and fight them really fast (they also never send more enemies at the same time, they just keep sending another same wave after you already defeated them). Not like them being more aggressive would be anything unique to this genre, as this shit has been already in dmc or NG difficulty settings

          you mean the chronic shitposters on Ganker constantly hunting for the next tortanic, we saw raw gameplay footage months and months before release so anyone who had a brain between their ears knew what they were in for, which is another DMC game ie: good.

        No, but you can use that tactic to kite and kill enemies that are a high enough level to one shot you, which brings into light another really stupid design decision which is that enemies have levels in the first place. Then it gets worse because the game went full modern design and tied Kratos's level to gear like a fricking MMO. It's an amalgamation of modern design sensibilities, no matter how bad they are. The game had a sliver of potential, but it's ruined but all the stupid shit.

    okay, seriously, this shit is just getting really fricking disrespectful to actual action game devs

    GoW 2018 is an atmospheric action-adventure game. Sure it's polished and big budget and all, but it's gameplay is really fricking simple compared to the big character action games, which is the whole unique selling point of this pure action game. If this action gampeplay isn't the most important factor when ranking these games then what the hell stops you from just adding other acclaimed aciton-adventure games like BotW or Souls or other shit.

    No, these morons are pretending that GoW2018's action gameplay is actually beyond those other games on the list even tho there is just no fricking depth to it, there is nothing you can't master in it in your first playthrough, and there are no crazy difficulty levels pushing the gameplay to the absolute limits and to crazy intensity. Fricking Nioh2 is more of a fully fledged action game than GoW2018 is

    Like, this pick alone is enough to tell that he doesn't like and probably hasn't actually played most of the other games on the list. It's IMPOSSIBLE to be the kind of person who actually appreciates games like Ninja Gaiden Black or the DMC series and still put GoW 2018 over them on the list. He only put those other games on the list because he thinks he's 'supposed' to.

      All those games are easy enough to get through by just mashing buttons, it's not like you need to be a combo master and exploit every gameplay mechanic just to get to the end. The average "cuhrayzee" fan just button mashes their way to the credit screen and thinks "well the music and visuals were nice, the story was alright, 7/10".

            NTA but if you played the game you would understand that it is one because there is hardly a reason to NOT use cover. Go watch actual speedruns of the game, they sit behind cover because the game was designed for that. The only time you leave cover is to abuse slowmo, and the game plays ends up like an autistic autoaim consolegay version of FEAR.

              Even ignoring that the game supposedly trying to disincentivize use of cover only uses a shitty score system penalty and has almost no ememy designed to do it, the game as movement shooter controls awfully. The animation for sliding is janky, the game loves to shove a slow motion down your throat and throwing a punch that can't knock out a goon is as expensive as half minute of bullet time popping hitscan headshot into the world. Each and every enemy is hitscan except melee, the game doesn't feature an horde mode and you have shitty gears of war grunts in your fricking way every second. Frick even Spec Ops The Line and Army of Two, the most by the book generic cover shooters, used verticality in level design, and this doesn't have a fricking jump button

                Obviously, who the frick plays action games on anything below the intended difficulties (always the highest one)? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ia_uHcabsdM you can see him sitting behind cover ALL the time, because thats how the game is designed to be played. You sit behind cover and use your built in aimbot to win, if you want to leave cover then you abuse the slowmo as much as possible before going back to cover or restocking on weapons.

                God Hard's damage is so ridiculously high that it basically nullifies the elements that the gameplay is built on. It's arguably not even a good mode and nothing points to it being "intended", just made for players who want to go the extra mile.
                >According to Vanquish director Shinji Mikami, "Normal" mode is the most generally recommended difficulty. "It takes some time to get used to aiming and firing at enemies on your own," states Mikami, "but we've fine-tuned the aiming controls, so you should be fine." The top tier unlockable difficulty, "God Hard," will only become available for second play-throughs and beyond. "*If you are a bit of a masochist*, I think you will have a good time," explains Mikami.
                Plus, judging the whole game based on speedruns of a single mode that you don't unlock until your second playthrough is a brainlet move, and I'm getting the sneaking suspicion you haven't played the game enough (if at all) to go that far. I doubt anyone who would keep playing Vanquish past Normal or Hard, like it enough to select God Hard and decide once and for all the game is utter garbage. I think you're just full of shit, honestly.
                Regardless, even in this mode the same speedrunner plays the same boss fight more or less the same as in Hard: getting up close and personal and barely using cover.

                ?t=911

                The challenge missions are far better grounds to judge the game on and you can also see players attempting to get as close to enemies as well as utilizing their melee if to finish the run as fast as possible. Shit ass video quality but enough to get the point across.

                Might as well just admit you play NG on ninja dog and Bayo on easy mode too you fricking clown, platinum games ALWAYS makes the intended gameplay the highest difficulty. The game is intended to be played as a cover shooter to the point even speedrunners play it like that as I posted proof before, in fact what's really unintended is abusing the filler mobility shit like punches for when the game designed you to not be able to move around forever by tieing boost to a a limited gauge. I'm sorry, but being a scrub and playing on unintended easy modes in ng+ is not an argument.

                False, and that's not even remotely comparable, you dishonest frickhead. Some games simply *might* have poorly tested/unbalanced modes that hurt the core gameplay so none of what you're saying is ever set in stone, you presumptuous moron. If it's the case that spamming punches to move faster was never intended, then SURELY you must fricking understand at least in principle that a particular game mode which is so broken that discourages the use of movement and sliding (one of the main mechanics and overall selling points of the fricking game) is working against itself, in other words it goes against the original intentions.

                Nice of you to ignore all the other points and evidence too while still yammering the same baseless argument hoping it sticks. I'm sick of dealing dipshits like you who outright REFUSE to see anything beyond a surface-level analysis and can only think in over-generalizations.

You use boost and slide to get from one cover to another you fricking mong, that's the intended use of it which god hard doesn't prevent, the fact you think the game is about being a spastic moron never touching cover makes even less sense since the game is literally built around being a cover shooter and it's mechanics.

                So the challenge missions which lock you to a specific difficulty (or Bloody Palace in DMC for that matter) are considered "unintended", and somehow exist in vacuum, apart from everything else, which simply do not count towards the overall experience because you, some random enlightened internet idiot, decreed as such. You speak of running around like a headless chicken and a spastic moron, but it's clear from the challenge video I posted earlier that that isn't the case.
                The player knew the spawn points and enemy weaknesses and took advantage of that knowledge, so even to someone who's never played this game before they can tell those movements and actions are clearly more calculated than random, which goes directly against to your revisionist bullshit.

                Really though, with all this talk about MUH INTENDED DIFFICULTY you're banking on so furiously, you're starting to sound like a fricking lunatic who needs to be on his meds, or a typical shitposter at best.

                No, fighting low-level enemies in NG is not the same as completing Vanquish mission challenges, let alone playing efficiently.

                Fighting 8 brown ninjas in NG is literally a mission there, the difficulty ranges in them just like in vanquish. I already posted proof of what god hard plays like even for speedrunners who played it to infinity. Vanquish itself is a casual game with a built in aimbot for scrubs so I have no who you are kidding by pretending like a casual isn't completing the even easier mission modes. The reality is that your argument is effectively stating vanquish to be a dogshit game with uselesscover mechanics, meanwhile on the proper difficulty you do actually use cover mechanics as intended or else the game would be a spastic shitshow that's even more casual than it already is.

                The rest of your post is irrelevant nonsense because you have no real arguments anymore.

                The difficulty might have different ranges across missions, yes. Like in Bloody Palace, if that's what you mean, where later stages enemies go into devil trigger which might indicate that the difficulty ramps up to DMD in later floors. But that is NOT the same as saying you fight the equivalent of the lowest enemy tier in a completely different game with different mechanics and vision. You're conflating two different concepts on purpose, you sneaky little wienersucker. Your argument ultimately boils down to HURR DURR NG IS HARDER, but that still doesn't invalidate how you have to make full use of every make mechanic available in Vanquish to perform well, like I've demonstrated for both the challenge missions AND God Hard mode. Seriously, go choke on a fricking dick if you think these sleights of hand and logical fallacies work in your favor.

                >I already posted proof of what god hard plays like even for speedrunners who played it to infinity.
                And in that same video I also pointed out the part where the speedrunner faces the enemies and boss head-on and doesn't hide in cover, even in God Hard. So while that one difficulty is unfortunately unbalanced and ruins part of what makes the game fun IMHO, there are still situations where you have to go balls to the wall and not play like a coward. So you're not even entirely correct about that singular game mode, even though you've been shitting yourself this whole time swearing that it characterizes the entire design of the game.
                What's funny here is you've cornered yourself by bringing up speedruns, when it's objectively the case you still need to take big risks in order to be faster instead of ducking behind a wall, regardless of difficulty. All you needed to say instead was that playing Vanquish like a simple cover shooter is all you need to beat it, like every other midwit that uses a similar argument

                Anonymous

                My argument doesn't boil down to ng being harder, it boils down to gameplay being different and playing differently on high or lower difficulties. Fight 8 brown ninjas is a joke where you can spam x to win, but you need to actively engage with the game's mechanics to kill 8 red is ninjas. You want to pretend like vanquish isn't a cover shooter because you like on easy mode where you don't have to engage with the game's systems properly because that's not the intended balanced difficulty, just like always - Platinum balanced around the hardest mode.

                You pointed out nothing besides a single encounter with a single enemy, if you watched the entire speedrun of god hard you would see exactly what I said, the player using cover all the time and when not in cover it's spamming nonstop slowmo because without it you die in seconds while not in cover. It is often the correct move to stay in cover on godhard and the speedrun proves that even the best players play the game the intended way with the game mechanics put into the game - in other words as a cover shooter.

                >You pointed out nothing besides a single encounter with a single enemy
                So it doesn't count because you just said so, like all the other difficulty modes and challenge missions that don't count because it wasn't "intended" or "balanced around" it (which is another fricking ass pull of an argument, also see

                Shinji Mikami, who also directed Evil Within, which includes the difficulty mode Akumu that kills you in one hit.
                But let me guess, syringes and health upgrades were never Intended™ because of that one game mode, right? Fricking dumbass.

                for another example why your stance completely falls apart). How long are you going to keep moving the goalposts, you fricking dirtbag?

                But I suggest you keep watching those God Hard speedruns that you yourself brought up (but ironically seems clueless about, because you're just that fricking stupid) for a couple more examples, including another boss fight:

                I keep mentioning easy mode because you're the person who thinks godhard isn't the intended difficulty for the game, you base your opinions and arguments on easy modes that aren't balanced properly because they let you run around like a brainless spastic instead of engaging with the game's mechanics properly. You even linked to a post about Evil within, which is neither made by Platinum games nor is even a character action game. You don't seem to understand that these games and especially platinum games makes their difficulties as unbalanced tutorials intended to simply teach the player how to play the game, with the actual game being the final difficulty.

                It doesn't count because all you link to are boss fights and cherry picked encounters due to every other part of the speedrun proving you wrong. The version first fight that isn't a turret encounter around 3 minutes proves me right, where he constantly goes to behind cover and shoot. The next proper fight at around 10 minutes again shows him hiding behind cover and shooting. And this is literally a perfect player who knows everything about the game perfectly even memorizing spawns and glitches to complete the game fasterl, even he uses cover. The average player will be behind cover even more than that, to a much higher degree. You have no arguement beyond cherry picking and playing on unbalanced tutorial difficulties.

                And not once did I say I played on easy. Hard mode is good enough, including other optional content (which is locked at least above easy), but yet again you run with that assumption throughout the rest of your post.

                >You even linked to a post about Evil within, which is neither made by Platinum games nor is even a character action game
                It's a game made by the same director, idiot. And you're just some nobody who cannot say for certain how and in what way Platinum as a whole balances their games and if their design philosophy is consistent throughout their work. Is Babylon's Fall multiplayer shit a Platinum staple? Is Tranformers Devastation random loot? But once again, and sure enough, you take that one assumption and run with it like it's a fact set in stone, which it isn't.

                Hard mode is an easy mode, its literally a tutorial difficulty made to teach you the game.

                >same director
                For a survival horror game under a western company that has nothing to do with platinum games nor character action games who strictly follow the difficulty implementation they ALWAYS have. Even Transformers devastation is designed around prime difficulty and no loot in that game is going to carry you through it, you have to get gud and thats why the lower difficulties exist. Babylong falls is a fricked up game that I'm sure not even Platinum wants to remember exists, its not a character action game and honestly I think they just shat it out for $quare because they are fricking broke these days to the point they only exist because of Nintendo bailing them out.

                It just isn't, dude. I don't care how much you repeat yourself and personally think you know Platinum's true method for balancing their games. I really don't give a shit. It's a non-argument that doesn't properly analyze what's really there. It's a totally dimwit perspective.

                >Plus, judging the whole game based on speedruns of a single mode that you don't unlock until your second playthrough is a brainlet move
                Most platinum actual games are unleashed on the second playrun, the first one being the tutorial. Bayonetta is the biggest example.

                >Most platinum actual games are unleashed on the second playrun, the first one being the tutorial

                My argument is that 80% of the game's entire content including the optional CHALLENGES allow you to play its fullest potential. It is also my personal belief that God Hard undoes a lot of of the game's mechanics, but to call all other content "tutorial difficulties" and to autistically insist on this highest true difficulty is narrow-sighted beyond belief.

                >The average player will be behind cover even more than that, to a much higher degree
                The average player won't play God Hard. Very nice for playing yourself like a moron once again.

                I know its your personal belief that godhard isn't the intended experience, because you want to be a brainless spastic that ignores how the game is actually intended to be played on the correct difficulty for good players. Platinum games ALWAYS makes the final difficulty the intended experience, and so does every other character action game to exist. You ignore this because you don't like the intended experience of the game, and then want to pretend like its something its not while playing on easy mode.

                The average player being the person who enjoys the game and plays it multiple times, not some casual who picks it up for a single mission or maybe a single playthrough at best. I mean the average vanquish FAN, not irrelevent fricks who don't even like character action games or vanquish.

    I'm just surprised Vanquish is even on that list. Too many people insist on treating it like a typical cover shooter and/or get filtered by the melee attacks being a resource that needs to be carefully managed.

    GoW 2018? Is this IGN filling their shilling quota or what? Quality aside, it's baffling that a game that's not even close to being as pure action as the other entries make it to the same list. It's so out of place you might as well throw a Souls game in there, maybe some metroidvanias as well.

    In any case, GoW might or might not have good combat. But there's more to what makes a good action game than simply its mechanics, like pacing, replayabaility and overall length. I'm so done with the modern Sony exclusive tier pacing I've been exposed to in Uncharted and TLOU and that alone deters me from even trying it, and to a lesser extent (but also a sign they just threw in a bunch of shit into the blender to mindlessly check off a list of modern design tropes), the RPG elements.

        Use EMP grenades. They're extremely useful to stun enemies buying you time to find cover while you wait for the suit to recharge. Cigars can also be used as a distraction. Also, there's a type of melee (I think it's the LMG that has it) that you can use to launch enemies without it counting as a hit. That's more of an exploit, you have to hit them with the very tip of the hitbox in the somersault. That attack is also used as a maneuver while in cover to get a better angle on a target.

            Your level is too low. Get your stats higher and you can even start to juggle some of them. Also, enemies only go into Elite mode if their HP drops to a certain point and you leave them alive too long. If you're efficient, they won't get to that point.

                >You don't get real character build freedom like in GOW.
                What character build freedom is there in GoW? All the RPG elements do is just deemphasize creative play. A Power Level 3 Kratos will have no problem blocking and parrying Level 3 foes, and will decimate those of Level 1 in less than three hits. But have a Level 3 Kratos face off against a Level 5 – or worse, Level 6 – enemy will be a nightmare, as Kratos cannot stagger, block, launch, ring-out, trip, stun or freeze these foes.
                It fricking sucks because we can see the game taking features away in order to make the game more arbitrarily difficult. On the flip-side, by exploring, crafting and leveling, Kratos’ more lackluster fights against enemies that ignore these mechanics become a lot more manageable. This again begs the question though, why do this? As it stands, the gear and stat systems only serve to make arbitrarily hard fights easier, that were only hard to make the system feel worthwhile in the first place. Other ways this could’ve been implemented was to have stats not impact your combat prowess, but change up effects and qualities of your attacks to give a feeling of progression – something the game does do, but it requires end-game amounts of stats to unlock even the most basic move-change. Having non-scaling damage options i.e. moves that always retain their power no matter how low or high level you are, would’ve also been an option.

      I dont like the floaty magnetic combat. Movement is stripped away. Throwing the ax is too good and turns the game into a bad third person shooter. Anything above Normal difficulty it feels like you do zero damage to anything. Kratos is supposed to be pretty strong so why does it take him 10 minutes to kill a Draugr and he goes down like a b***h. And the tacked on rpg mechanics and customization add nothing.

    I can't in good put GoW2018 in the same camp as any of these other games (Vanquish too I guess) due to that dogshit 3rd person OTS camera. It's such an awful choice for a melee focused game and if you immediately can't see why that is you're moronic.

      Its a loose genre title. Action could really mean anything but generally it refers to attacking enemies with melee focused combat. A bunch of action games have side stuff, cool down moments, puzzles, platforming so GoW '18 still qualifies, its just a bad action game.

              I’d say you’ll be fine for the most part barring some concepts that will go over your head on a first playthrough but the game explains itself well enough. It’s a pretty unique ARPG that rewards five main factors: pin management, understanding pin synergy, expert use of immobilizing status effects to extend combos, intelligent Groove Mashup utilization/Mashup looping, and positioning. There’s also shit like reversals, inertia manipulation, pin buffering, camera positioning, revenge meter manipulation, and more if you want to get really autistic with the tech stuff.

      tbh being on EGS for a year is probably a blessing in disguise. Despite releasing a little under a month later, Stranger of Paradise was still way too close to Elden Ring's launch for it to be a success.

        Elden Ring has absolutely nothing to do with the games released around the same time underperforming.
        It's a very convenient excuse for games like Horizon Forbidden West, Tiny Tina Wonderlands or Stranger of Paradise to excuse their mediocrity and blame someone else instead.
