I'm at a loss. What's so great about God of War?

It's just QTE's and button mashing.

Ok, I forgot dodging highly telegraphed attacks.


You forgot the adventuring, platforming, and puzzle-solving aspects of the series. Which, is my primary reason for enjoying the series. I love trekking through ancient Greece. The combat felt shallow to me, admittedly, but it was still fun in its own right, and I only played on normal.

The button is simple and easy to learn, the combat is flashy and epic and the boss battle is kinda awesome, very rare indeed because W dev can only make horrible boss battle.

Other than that is nothing special the character and story is meh. The games is too simple and casual. And it kinda short

I don't really get the appeal either, but if people like it then good on them.

AE=overrated. Edge/Undertaker is my favorite feud of the modern era, and perhaps of all time.

It has blood, guts, and bewbies.

That's the entire appeal of God of War in a nutshell.

If you didn't get hooked up fighting the hydra, I don't know what will.

I gave it a chance after I killed it. I like GOW.

I like the over the top violence, but if there wasn't a good game underneath, I wouldn't give a s***.

If you don't understand why people like it and you're ignorant enough to really think that it's all QTEs and button mashing then explaining anything to you would be pointless.


This is the truth. It's an awesome series. Game sells, people whine, it works.


Ah, fanboys.


Ah, blind haters with nothing else to do. If you hate it... i dunno, leave?

GoW is great because mindless gamers love easy combat with absolute no depth, also nerds love the sex scene depicted in the game.

Generic hack and slash


The king of hack n slash that why


Yeah king of HnS in sales but that's not saying much actually. In terms of quality, GoW is nowhere as good as other renowned HnS series.
