God of War 3

I'm playing this for the first time. It's pretty fun and the combat is great but compared to 2 and even the PSP games, 3 feels less like an epic adventure and more like just big bosses spread between smaller enemy battles. The first two games had a sense of mystery and you could find cool secrets hidden around while exploring

      2 is by far the best

    I played the trilogy those last few months and GOW 3 is definitely the best on almost all aspects. The previous GOW had far too many boring encounters to feel like proper adventures, especially GOW 1 when later on almost everything was a boring hp sponge designed to waste your time
    GOW 3 has much more bearable average encounters which makes you go to bosses faster

    It's the most bombastic for sure. They really wanted it to go with a bang and there's really less esoterisism about it, it's more about completing Kratos' revenge on Olympus and that's it. It's less about exploring mythology under a different lens and more about doing a big, epic gauntlet of fights with all the Greek gods he didn't kill on every other game.

    I personally like it a lot, but I can see why someone else would say GoW2 is better, for example.

    Yes but the fights and story more than make up for it.

    3 is basically just Hades' world and mount Olympus. 2 has cool zones like the ice mountain, colossal stone horse temple, the Medusa temple in a swamp and the sisters of fate place. Even 1 has more zones than 3

      Wrong. You spend 90% of the game actually playing and most cutscenes are short and straight to the point. There are no 10 minutes scenes of Kratos walking around doing nothing

          Old God of War was always good. The only people who think the combat is braindead are the ones who play through on lower difficulties and just mash mindlessly.

                The webm exists because DMCucks use "muh combos!!" as a defense of DMC. This showcases that you can do the same thing in God of War 3, except the enemies also actually fight back instead of just being training dummies.

                Having a combo system is not something mutually exclusive to DMC, and it's showing that God of War has similar combo and air juggling depth to DMC, but the enemies aren't just braindead training dummies so this isn't how you typically play the game, thus why it's only showcased in an empty arena with one enemy). Whereas in DMC this is actually how you play the game because the enemies have frickloads of HP and other enemies will just sit there and watch as you sit there and air juggle their training dummy buddy.

                You really are fricking stupid aren't you? The enemy doesn't get that QTE option until they are actually on the ground. He way overkilled the enemy, but it won't die until you do the finisher move. Again, this is the only place you can really even showcase this because it has to be an enemy that is alone and won't die until you do the finisher.

    3 is the best of the series. The peak of cinematic gameplay, back when cinematic meant polish and high production values and epic scale, rather than walkie-talkie sections and handholdy gameplay.

    Gow3 is where Kratos has returned to frick shit up for good. 1st one is pretty much a greek tragedy and an introduction to the series, and the second is an impossible quest to save himself from death.

    I think I still have to beat Zeus or whatever on Chaos difficulty. The game is moderately difficult, but you can beat it with some common sense.

    i'm replaying it for the 2nd time as well. even though 3 is my favourite by far the exploration aspect is pushed way back for the big setpieces and bosses.
    I think that lends itself greatly to the pacing though, 3 always has me feeling like there's another big bombastic encounter behind the corner.
    also, call me a nostalgiagay but i would love to see a classic style hack and slash gow 3.5 about greek kratos and faye. like a final goodbye to the OG god of war.

    3 takes place on one mountain albeit a gloriously sized version of Mt. Olmypus which the devs said in this world is millions of feet tall. Its not over several locations.

    3 is the culmination of the story, a full on bang. So it makes sense.
