God of War

God of War still feels decidedly different from the David Jaffe-led games of the PS2 and PS3 era. Kratos is now old and grizzled, he guards a wayward, mysterious son in the frozen north, and a debauched menage-a-trois would feel decidedly out of place. The trailer at the press conference flexed SIE's writerly auteurship – more Last of Us than Duke Nukem – which is a necessary but dangerous rebranding for one of the most gleefully excessive video game franchises of all time. In the combat, however, you swing a giant battle-axe and chain bloody combos. It's still God of War, after all.
