          The tutorial gives a false impression of how block works then. And in fact I don't even think there is any message telling you about block or the mechanics of blocking (what types of attacks it blocks), you just figure out that is the only way because the attacks are impossible to dodge

      I find DMC so fricking bland it's unreal. The level design is so ass in that game and the fights are so boring and repetetive. Everything that's wrong about GOW that Lords of shadow does right, is what DMC is. DMC is the exact opposite of Lords of Shadows and the most repelling shit in the genre that exists. Everything in that game is so meaningless, boring, bland and superficial. If I want a good DMC like I play ninja gaiden

    God of War 1 and 2 are more about vibes and setpieces than mechanics. If you want a semi-competent character action game then skip to 3, then try out 2018 and Ragnarok (which have a lot of cutscenes but way more challenges that actually push the mechanics).

    There's a reason the Ryu left Kratos on a trike alone is a thing. GOW is fun, but it's always made to appeal to majority, so half of the accessible content will be catered to casuals. The devs knew they are making a for-profit product that should appeal to the masses unlike the autistic Japs that tried to appeal to the hardcore; for good or bad.

      Not everything needs to be for "hardcores". Ninja gaiden is a good game, but god of war is good too. Arguments and comparisons of this tier remind me of autists shitting on ace combat because they're not flight simulators or tards being like "HEH... look at you playing your BABY games for losers like Call of Duty or Battlefield... while I play a real MAN game for GROWN UP ADULTS... Arma 3."

    I had the same experience. I really wanted to love the game and I like it, but it is extremly flawed. Very repettetive sometimes very slow with bullet spong enemies. Quick time events are shit. The only game that pulled off quick time events right is Dynamite Cop.

    I recently played Castlevania Lords of shadow for the first time and I love it right from the start. The attack feedback is awesome. The quick time events are super dumbed down so they don't get in the way of the fun and the game is quick and very varied. Only critique would be the ugly ass main character design, but still the rest is so good that I can live with that.

    This might be my favorite Castlevania game. Have to see when I finished it.

    Also looking forward to dantes inferno.
