God of War receives 10 Bafta nominations, more than Red Dead Redemption 2. Can we admit it's the better game?

Woot, this game just keeps rocking, and deservedly so. What do think of the nominations, SW? Is it time to admit that God of War was the real deal of 2018? Better than Red Dead Redemption 2?

They're just awards, unless you're just being cheeky.

But I prefer it over RDR2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is really tedious. I just dont understand how can anyone play this game for a long time, everything takes too long. I quit the game at chapter 3.

Hell no. RDR2 is clearly the better game.

DMC5 is better than GOW.

if its getting awards and recognization among mainstream media. it means it worse of 2.

When has a rockstar game ever been good? SA was the last half decent one, that's it.

Exactly my thoughts. RDR2 is overhyped trash, it's only now that people are realizing it. It's nice to see it get rekt by GOW when it comes to GOTY wins and awards, GOW is definitely the better game.

I bought the game based on hype and was thoroughly disappointed by the snoozefest. Last time I blindly go out to buy a Rockstar game.

It had more nominations for an award, maybe you should at least wait to see which game wins the Bafta awards and then decide how winning a Bafta award makes it a better game versus being a game that won a Bafta award.

Also, people still preferred RDR2 going by sales.

Oh shit I just looked up what bafta meant and its British Academy of Film and Television Arts, how appropriate that GoW has most nominations lol.

Couldn't agree more GOW is a good game but overrated I think the game got so much love with some people because the father and son relationship of the characters for me I could give two shits about it.

@SolidGame_basic:

Both games are significantly different. So, no. You can't really say which is better since both games were headed completely different directions. I personally prefer Red Dead Redemption 2, as well.

DMC5 is actually a proper game. proper hack n slash action game. GOW is cinematic movie game. thus DMC5 is far and away better.

I love DMC5, really amazing hack n slash. But GOW is a game that's better than the sum of its parts. It has more to offer than just the core gameplay. It really is a well done game.

If DMC5 was a Sony game it would have a MC score of 101/100.

I likd RDR2 overall but in end didn't feel it had me thinking it deserves a great degree of praise, it managed to suck up a lot of my time and is hard to put down but nothing really blows my hair back about it. Haven't played God of War yet but not hard to imagine it is a better game.

I feel completely different playing both games... I enjoy both greatly. God of War has a more action based approach which suits my taste more, but red dead nails its setting and tone... Story was very satisfying and offered lots to do. They're both really great.

RDR2 was more of the same with added chores. The whole game is designed to be a chore.

I'm not buying RDR2 until I'm sure if I know it's coming to PC or not, so GOW wins by default for me.

DMC5 has plenty of cutscenes. Let's all be straight here, if it was a Sony exclusive, you and everyone else would be calling it a movie game.

Having played both, I can honestly say, I'm really torn between the two. But I think RDR2 has an edge.

I forgot RDR2 online exists. So taking the game as a whole? GOW wins easily.

I didn't enjoy either game on an immense level. There were highlights in both that were incredible. Both had numerous missteps. and I was left just thinking they were both good by the end of it.

I preferred RDR2. God of War almost seemed more proof-of-concept to me.

I haven't play RDR2 but yes GOW is the better game.

Simply because the controls have to be better than rockstar controls.

I thought GoW was the better game, but I also really didn't like RDR2 all that much. Monster Hunter World, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Spider Man, Smash Bros, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Forza Horizon 4, and Octopath Traveler were all better than RDR2 imo, so to me it's not surprising at all to see GoW get more GotY awards than RDR2. I personally would have given it to GoW.

The other way around. RDR2 has the worst gameplay, I think that revelation has been its problem.

Like the tedious, repetitive axe puzzles? God of War sucked. The pretentious, depressing walk and talk story that killed what the series was trying to be isn't even very good. I liked the original trilogy. Never finished the reboot.

But I also quit RDR2, much sooner than God of War, mostly because of the abysmal aiming and otherwise mediocre controls.

If you like it better that’s fine. It’s as close as it gets to me as @k-m-k said perfectly.

It’s not better imo but RDR2 isn’t a run away to me either. It’s a game with an audience that doesn’t need in your face ACTION!!!! EXPLOSIONS!!!!! ZOMG!!! Pace which fits the westerns I grew up on.

I lol because until these two games metacritic held so much weight. Now it’s nominations and goty numbers won lol
