[QUOTE="DarkLink77"] How the hell are they going to make God of War IV? Everyone in the Greek Pantheon is dead. Hell, even Ascension feels cheap because you can't fight anyone cool since you kill them all later on.DarkLink77

Well they could go with Norse mythology I don't know. Going by GOW3's ending it's possible to continue with a different story other than mass murdering gods. But GOW is one of Sony's cash cows, you can bet your life there will be more GOW games.

I'd like if they kept the God of War brand and just explored other mythologies. Norse would be very cool. No Kratos, though, please.

That would be cool. Though Kratos is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says God of War. It would be hard to flesh out another character. I wouldn't mind a Kratos vs. Thor fight similar to the Hercules fight. Norse could definitely work.

[QUOTE="bobbetybob"]I'd be very surprised if GoW got a 9, but since cows seem to be in super duper protection mode they'll probably hype it A so they can claim ownage if it gets an 8.bobbetybob

Dat gore.

It looks great visually but I feel like God of War's gameplay hasn't evolved at all in 5 games, it's still fun but I don't think reviewers will let it slide so easily after this many games.

Well else could you possibly to with the gameplay since they've already made it pretty good. It;s not one of those crazy high speed combo heavy games so it makes sense to stick with the tried and true formula.

Kratos doesn't really fit into Norse mythology, though. And frankly, he's really not a great character. I would rather have them wipe the slate clean and start fresh. That allows for much more creativity.

Prequel, probably.

Set during the time Kratos served Ares. Or set between GoW 1 and GoW 2, when he achieved full God status.

This cow shall be milked, dammit :x

But they've already done like three prequels. :| And it still doesn't solve the problem of "no one cool to fight" which is a problem considering the series lives and dies on its boss fights.

You have a point..

Also, the part when [spoiler] you realize Kratos is still alive after beating Zeus clearly hints it's gonna be set after the events of 3.... Athena still lives, maybe he'll go after her. [/spoiler]

Not a very appealing "Villain" though.

Yeah they;ve already done every possible story scenario with the franchise so unless they make a game that takes place after 3 then they should just let the franchise rest for now. I would love to see them either start a new franchise or bring back Heavenly Sword.

Well Kratos didn't really fit into Greek mythology either but they did it. Maybe they could have a second playable character in a future GOW title alongside Kratos, just to get the audience familiar with him. Then they could start a new story based on that character. Like passing the torch off from Kratos.

Kratos is actually based off of a character from Greek mythology. He fits pretty well. I think they should just start fresh. I mean, it's God of War. Nobody plays it because Kratos is such a wonderful protagonist.

My predictions:

God of War Ascension - 9.0

Sly Cooper: Theives in Time - 8.5 - 9.0

Beyond: Two Souls - 8.5 - 9.0

The Last of Us - 9.0-9.5

I honestly can't see any of those flopping.

DarkLink77
I could see all of those flopping. Especially The Last of Us (Naughty Dog First Attempt Syndrome), God of War (franchise fatigue), and Beyond: Two Souls (More Heavy Rain isn't exactly impressive).

The "Naughty Dog First Attempt Syndrome" bullsh!t didn't happen to Jax trilogy, you know that right? :| And one can call UC1 the weakest game in the trilogy, but only dumbass call it a flop, game got 88 on Meta for F sake.

They could do that. Then they could create their own characters and villains from scratch. Athena could definitely be some sort of villain. Maybe have her a slave to another mysterious all powerful villain that wanted Zeus dead by the hands of Kratos?

He's a video game icon. You just can't have a GOW game without Kratos. A spin-off GOW game perhaps but Kratos is to GOW as what Mario is to Super Mario.

Well, they could just not make the game. It feels like a pretty unnecessary prequel, same as Gears of War Judgment, at least that's focusing on secondary characters though and shedding light on their story a bit more. We already had 2 prequels and 3 main games to explore Kratos, what more could we possibly learn? I do like the gameplay, I feel the same way about it as I do CoD (that's not an insult) in that it's fast, fluid and never really gets old but, going back to my original point of review scores, is that same old gameplay enough for it to score a 9?

Flop = fail to meet the hype score, not fail to meet your opinion. And :lol: you really think J & D is the weakest in the series?

I disagree. I so disagree. It's easily the weakest because it's aged the most. It was a decent platformer at the time, but now? Not so much. Jakd II and Jak 3 have aged much more gracefully, and Jak 3 is easily the most mechanically sound out of all of them.

Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy - Gamespot score 8.8 - Metacritic 90 - User score 8.7 with 7192 votes

As someone who finished Jak 2 today for the first time I can safely say f*** that final boss fight. So cheap, so constricting and so anticlimatic. Great game though.

Nah I just think over 7,000 scores from users are better than 1 critic's review. It doesn't matter though, we all have our opinions and I think Jak 3 was best.

i guess thats /thread. though, if gow ascension doesnt get a 9 on gs i will go out of control

Depends on what they'll offer though, basing on what i've seen so far, 8.5 max. But if they can deliver another groundbreaking SP like GOW2 did, it'd very well score AAA (at least in my book)

Jak 2/3 were definitely better than Jak 1 in my opinion.

Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy - Gamespot score 8.8 - Metacritic 90 - User score 8.7 with 7192 votes

Jak 2 - Gamespot score 9.1 - Metacritic 87 - User score 9.0 with 7959 votes

Jak 3 - Gamespot score 8.6 - Metacritic 84 - User score 9.1 with 7624 votes

So much for many agreeing with you as well.

Sweet ownage I guess? And suddenly user score is more important than Meta/Gamespot score why? I mean, you wouldn't take this review seriously, would you?

Nah I just think over 7,000 scores from users are better than 1 critic's review. It doesn't matter though, we all have our opinions and I think Jak 3 was best.

Yeah, I was just trying to say that it's not a fact that Jak 1 is the weakest, though I certainly respect yours & DarkLink's opinion.

well what can go wrong with gow? after the first i knew 2 would be awesome, and after 2 that 3 would be awesome. 4 should be the same. only reason i see gs giving it a lower score is if they keep the combat the same. i see them saying now, oh, the camera is this and that and the mechanics are the same blah blah blah. thats what they did to infamous 2. and then somehow, a game like cod gets 9 every year(except BO 2)

I'm gonna say all of them, just to be safe.

none of the big 3 if any is a "flop" itll be sly 4, but theres not that much hype for it anyway its like a bonus for us ps3 fans, -sony spoils us for sure

I think GoW:A will flop with a 7.5, the rest will most likely meet hype.

I'll be too busy playing them all to care about GS :)
