I am about to finish God of War and it is a stunning work. The narrative is at the same level of Uncharted or Horizon Zero Dawn but must importantly Last of Us. It is a very satisfying character action game that retains the feel of previous GOW games with a meaningful layer of the unintentional consequences parents can have on their kids with even the best of intentions.

I highly recommend it

Really looking forward to buying it.  Sony is currently at war with Amazon, so you can only get it there via third party sellers. It's happened before and will likely happen again.  Sigh. I've got enough of a backlog that I can wait for a price drop or the GotY Edition which will surely come out by end of year.

I finished GOW and goddamn Matt, you have to play it. I am going to buy it so I can go back and do the post narrative stuff.

Beating GOW and E3 sent me back into playing Assassin's Creed: Origins which is easily 40-80 hours of gameplay. I found that after getting good in GOW I really enjoy the combat more in AC:O.  I prefer sneaking around and stabbing fools with the wristblade but the move to level enemies doesn't always make that possible unless you grind crafting materials to upgrade the blade as quickly as possible.

Either way, the Dark Souls lite controls in both games have become rewarding enough to me that I might actually give Dark Souls:Remastered a serious go.

FWIW I tried DARK SOULS II earlier this year and regretted the purchase.  Couldn't get into it.  Slow and terribly boring to me.  I was expecting something more along the lines of DARKSIDERS II which is, itself, inspired by the DARK SOULS franchise and a game I throughly enjoyed.  Wasn't to be.  Quickly gave up on it.  YMMV.

I had tried all of the Souls games and Bloodborne was the one I got the farthest in, because it was so fast and snappy. The need to commit to actions with deliberation with no ability to cancel a dodge or a strike is very frustrating for me, but there are mini-bosses in GOW that took me over a dozens attempts to beat, so maybe now is the time.

FWIW Robin, I'm having a blast playing THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE.  Every bit as hysterical as the original.  Different power set and fighting style, although still turn based, but that's to be expected going from a D&D setting to Superheroes.  The base game is also longer than the original plus, unlike the original, it comes with DLC.  Strong recommendation from me.
