      Retarded normies. It is not a meme. Normies agree with popular consensus. You can feed normies literal shit and as long as the so-called ~~*experts*~~ and ~~*officials*~~ agree that it's good for them, so will the normie thing it's true.

      The bar is so low for narratives in video games that a game with tons of plot holes, horrible pacing, a meandering story, hollow characters and a disappointing conclusion is hailed as a masterpiece. If Ragnarok were an actual movie it would be universally panned. It really does feel like video game critics just fundamentally lack critical thinking, that or maybe they're scared they'll lose their early access review codes if they don't give it a positive score.

      I'm going to be honest with yous, I couldn't finish the game. I quit after a couple of hours, I was in some snowy areas and I had to find cover while I was playing as this little retarded kid, I just couldn't do it anymore. What I do know is that my 15 year old self would've loved this game, I just know it. I would've been so impressed by the graphics, the story and all of that. Now that I'm older, I just do not have the patience for this game anymore. It's so fucking boring. The gameplay is just shit, the amount of visual diarrhea just shoved into my face, it's so goddamn fucking annoying

        I felt the same way playing the first one and stopped. It's obviously that lots of very talented artists worked on it, but the overall formula and structure, zzzz. I'm not the biggest fan of third-person over-the-shoulder games though so I knew I wasn't the target audience for multiple reasons.

      Wasnt the number of cutscenes in Ragnarok clocked to be much higher? Either way its amazing how unengaging and amateur they are. Theres zero cuts, cinematography or alternating angles it just feels like following people around with cameras attached to their backs.

        That video only shows the cinematic cutscenes, theres a lot of "cutscenes" in game where you control the camera that are not factored here (Such as the flying boat scene, the faye canoe scene, the dinner table stuff, etc). Overall theres about 20 hours of cutscenes with these included.

            Its not. My first playthrough was just short of 60 hours to get Platinum. I factored about 40 hours was gameplay and 20 were cutscenes/story moments. My second playthrough with my girlfriend I focused on the story and I skipped almost all of the side content that didn't add to the story. Overall it was just about 35 hours, and the cutscenes where half of it.

      This was my wife's and my biggest gripe (she watched me play the game). She kept calling it B-team writing, because everything felt like a CW show, especially a lot of the side dialogue (like on the boats and sled). There were some good storytelling moments, and the Berserkers and Gna on GMGOW were some of the best challenges I've had in a while.

        Good way to articulate it; I understand that they don't want to give the characters cliché faux-Shakespeare lines but nothing goes unstated by the characters. If a character learns a lesson, changes their opinion or feels an emotion, they'll tell you directly, rather than demonstrating it through their tenor or actions.

    It's because Cory Barlog didn't direct it.

    GoW 2018 was genuilely good. Surprising and fun the whole way. Rag was too big and dragged. But I couldn't stop playing it. The gameplay was good. Its weird that this was basically games 2 and 3 of the Norse trilogy. The story ended up being a whole nothing burger. The characters got on my nerves.
    Kratos: Whiney. Just fucking kill everyone bro! He doesn't do jack shit except for Heimdall.
    Atreus: Whiny bitch. Keeps a secret the whole time that Kratos ALREADY KNEW.
    Freyja: Whiny bitch. I don't gaf about your issues with your son or Odin. JFC shut up!
    Mimir got sidelined too much.
    The dwarf brothers ended up being the highlight of the game.
    Despite rolling my eyes most of the game I could not stop playing or even attempt to skip a cutscene. Sony has an issue with pushing out games with this melodramtic bullshit. Spider-Man had a horrible story. I didn't give a fuck about Doc Oc or Aunt May dying lmao. Horizon 1 was awesome and surprising and novel. Horizon 2 dragged and the characters were embarrassing.

    Reminder they also killed Rare, introduced paid online to online console gaming, want to strip all ownership away from the consumer by making everything digital-only on Xcloud and Gamepass, and all off their exclusives are mtx-riddled pay-to-win garbage like Sea of Thieves, Gears4&5, and Halo 5.

    It's also funny that some of you think buying Bethesda is going to save them. Bethesda hasn't made a good game since Skyrim, the rest of their games can't even hit metacritic scores of 80. Let's not also forget they let Bethesda put the Horse Amour DLC on the 360 marketplace back in 2007. If they hadn't done that, microtranstations and other bullshit greedy DLC practices wouldn't even be a thing today.

    Microsoft is the most greedy, anti-consumer, monopolistic, disgusting company there is. Stop defending their shit, Ganker.

    The SERIES ASS is an shit cucksole designed to scam the consumer renting chud indie games and 14 year old 360 games like goyim cattle.

    If you buy and/or support Microsoft in any way, even ironically, you deserve death.

    Chud was making a list of games he would never play based on the game cover and started listing shit like Bayonetta, BotW, FFVII remake, Persona 5, etc.
    On another vid he posted his games list and he had played like 20 games, the most nornie shit like GoW, GTA, Madden, Minecraft, RDR, Batman, AssCreed, Spiderman, NFS, CoD etc.
    Gaming has become a hobby for normalfags who want feel included.
    The hobby is also infested with so many layers of normiegayism.
    2 decades ago these people would try to make gamers feel bad about gaming.
    Nowadays they pretend to like gaming to feel included but will only pretend to like the most marketed normie shit.
    Normies seem to prefer western games too.
    Normies are the majority in gaming demogrsphucs so companies who create casual and market games the most hold the monopoly to gaming.

    Elden Ring won GOTY in 2022 and the GoWR fans who know nothing about gaming fidnt even know wtf Elden Ring was. They started crying about it that GoW had won GoTY in 2018 as if that meant something.
    Also plenty of normies jumped onto souls franchise only after Elden Ring because of GOTY.
    Those people are also crying that the game is too hard, being the easiest souls games.
    I dont get it, Souls Games have been normie since BloodBorne and DS3.

Heimdall has just threatened to skin your son alive and torture him, Kratos has murdered about 5000 elves by this point, but somehow beating this arrogant, sociopathic asshole to a pulp is crossing a line?

            The game never pins down what the gods are, exactly. The earlier games didn't either, but they weren't driven so strongly by character interactions; when you've got 30 minute sections consisting solely of gods talking to each other, it's more glaring. Are they just humans who came into extraordinary power - that's what they act like - or are they divine concepts, personifications of the abstract?

    2018 turned me off of the series for good. It's not just that it was a movie, but because it was a really shitty movie with godawful characters and a nothing plot.

      I'd say Atreius adventures with Odin, Thor, and Thors daughter in the game were a positive step forward (plot wise and to evolve the character) but at the same time his meeting Agraboda and adventuring with her drags on way to godamn long not to mention completely removing him from use in the post game.
      Also the whole mask shit was just an unnecessary macguffin that shouldn't have even been in the game since really didn't amount to Jack shit to the plot and nothing is remotely explained about it before it fucks off.

    Game was good. Only shit parts were being stuck playing as Boy especially when you first go to jotunheim. Brok dying and Odin pretending to be Tyr was retarded though. Also Sindri is a moron
