Digital Foundry analyzing Horizon 2 said they had no idea how it was going to work on PS4 because of what they were doing on PS5 so I'm guessing GOW will be a similar situation where the PS5 version is impressive enough to stand on its own.Gotta say, this being a ps4 game has derailed my hype train.
That first back tracking walking section to Alfheim and the entire end sequence dragging out were the only examples I know of and they're both pretty bad. I just hope all the forced walking sections and loading screen hiding sections are gone.The first game has some issues with its pacing, so I hope this isn't the time for the main story, or, an indication that the game has moved towards an even heavier focus on cut-scenes that eat up the run time.
Yeah a short and dense game can be awesome. I played through God of War, Uncharted 4, Ratchet & Clank once in 20 hours or so, I likely won’t touch them again but I only have good things to say about them.Can't say I'm a fan of 40 hour games these days. I like to spend around 20 at the maximum. That being said there are exceptions to the rule and maybe this game is one of them. I do prefer the original GoW games though.
The war between the dark elves and light elves felt like a missing piece in the story. It’s heavily implied that the dark elves are justified for invading the light elves. My bet is we will get a look at Svartalfheim to get a broader sense of what was going on in Alfheim in the first game.Don't forget there's 3 realms out of the 9 that you couldn't access in the 2018 one, so maybe this is 40 hours with a heavy focus on exploring and playing in those 3 realms (Asgard, Vanaheim & Svartalfheim).
You didn't experience Death Stranding if you finished it in under 30 hours. Congrats on wasting your time and money rushing through a game.
Underthemayo made a great video on the how god of war was kinda ruined. I mean the new game is great, but it's missing some things that the old ones accomplishedCan't say I'm a fan of 40 hour games these days. I like to spend around 20 at the maximum.

I disagree there. There is plenty of story without stopping by every single person. I think I got my money’s worth. I see this get thrown around on here. I played the scenes worth seeing. A lot of the times you would complete an objective and just forget about what you did because the game got deeper or richer. It isn’t like a book or a movie where you skip 20-30 minutes and you’re completely lost. Please don’t come at me with this. This is like telling me to go back to Skyrim or Fallout 4 and finish all the side quests. I completed the main quest and got my money’s worth. Did you do every single quest in all the games you buy? You don’t have to go to every single part of the map to say “I got my money’s worth”. I had a good time with it. I had a good time with Ghost of Tsushima and I didn’t do every single side quests. I got my money’s worth there too. Not all the side stuff makes the game better. This is borderline “you didn’t get the Platinum bro, you wasted your money”.You didn't experience Death Stranding if you finished it in under 30 hours. Congrats on wasting your time and money rushing through a game.
On topic, 40 hours is fine.
I bet you are like some parents I know who prefer to be playing that spending time with their kids.
