It's no surprise that GS has been flopping PS3 exclusives left and right lately this year with only Journey coming out with a AAA score. With 2013 approaching we will be seeing the likes of God of War, a new Sly Cooper title, new titles like Ni no Kuni, Beyond: Two Souls, and the highly anticipated The Last of Us. But if these past two years have proven anything, no PS3 exclusive is safe especially on this site. So I believe it's time to take up some bets and ask which of the following titles (or possibly one I haven't listed) do you believe GS will flop next year.

last of us will get 9 at least. Sly 4 will most likely flop. God of war will get 8.5 minimum..chance of flopping.
#3 Posted by Meeeper282 (1602 posts) -

Sly cooper

Last of us is made by naughty dog, meaning it will get a 9.0 here

Plus it's made by the uncharted 2 team..

Given this year, I wouldn't have a hard time seeing all of them flop hard.

Depends on whether or not Cows have learned to reign in their hype after getting destroyed in the Metagame this year.

#6 Posted by BPoole96 (22784 posts) -

My predictions

The Last of Us: 9.0

Beyond: Two Souls: 8.0

God of War Ascension: 8.0

Sly 4: 7.0

No idea, then again the last couple of exclusives were hyped A since GS was on open season on PS3 exclusives. Only trolls hyped beyond the A hype.

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.

Sly cooper will get a 7.5

The last of us will get 8.0

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

Anyone who thinks sly will flop is insane. It will probably average an 84-87 meta.

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).
#17 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11471 posts) -

God of War Ascension-8.5

Sly 4-8.0

Beyond Two Souls-8.5

The Last of Us-9.0

So is it written!

God of War Ascension, I feel will at least get a 9. If I remember correctly there hasn't been a console GOW that flopped. Santa Monica is talented, they know how to impress. We haven't seen much of the story mode yet either. I think they will make this the best GOW similar to how GOW2 was PS2's swan song. With multiplayer as a plus, which looks pretty awesome by the way. It's just a flop proof series, my opinion of course.

I can't really comment on The Last of Us since we don't know much about it. Though one thing is certain, Naughty Dog. Nuff said. Also, it just looks really good. I haven't been impressed by a console game in a while.

And Beyond: Two Souls, it will get points for being different than any other game. It's original and will be very story heavy.

Though, I can't really say if any of those will flop or not. I haven't seen enough or played them to judge them. The only thing all those games have in common is that they have talented studios making them.

God of War is also a very old franchise that has been milked to death and has nowhere left to go creatively. Sony Santa Monica is mad talented, but you can only stave off franchise fatigue for so long. Naughty Dog means Naughty Dog First Attempt Syndrome. It's completely possible. It looks a lot like Heavy Rain, and David Cage is not a good writer. But I dunno. It depends on how forgiving/strict game critics feel like being next year.

Such an easy, boring jab. Might as well not have even bothered. He said he thought it would score between 84-87. It didn't do that on GS or on MetaCritic. So he was right either way. Halfwit.

You could, but you'd be wrong. Mostly because I know that 83 doesn't come between 84 and 87.
#29 Posted by bobbetybob (19114 posts) -
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.
#30 Posted by nervmeister (15170 posts) -
Most likely Ninokuni: Wrath of the White Witch due to Level 5's track record.

I think cows will hype "Sly Cooper" A, and it will still flop.

It will be Sony Allstars all over again.

Holy f*ck, you are stupid. I can actually feel my brain cells committing hari-kiri when I read your posts. First of all, we were going by his standards. He established the 84-87 criteria. I know it's hard to remember things for more than a few minutes, but you can do it. I believe in you. Secondly, we weren't talking about the original poster. Halfwit.

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.

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.

Prequel, probably.

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

But they've already done like three prequels. :|

And it still doesn't solve the problem of "no one cool to fight" which is an issue considering the series lives and dies on its boss fights.

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.

Kratos vs. Thor? Now that I'd love to see.

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.
