Video game reviewers in 2022 be like:
Kratos, renowned for murdering his entire extended family with his bare hands in a blind rage, is slightly emotionally detached as a father.
I, for one, am shocked.
I’ve never seen the term “loving game” before lol. Do they just mean a game with a wholesome story?
I too play games for good father figures.
“Dark souls review: thrilling gameplay, great graphics, may not satisfy those looking for sunshine and rainbows around every corner.” 😐
Is this fake? I thought it ign had God of War as one of the all time great games.
Edit – it’s siliconeras review. The only current ‘mediocre’ review
Wait, is this for real ?
“Kratos’ Left Big Toe is slightly bigger than his Right, which may not satisfy everyone who is looking for perfect symmetry in a game”.
lol it’s God of War not Cuddles. What did they expect?
What a stupid and largely incorrect point.
Because when I’m looking for a loving game my first thought is God of War.
So many gamers without dads that now they’re bringing home to work.
Didn’t they give God of War a 10? How does the PC version drop that much?
DUDE TRIGGER WARNING.
Just reading the words distant father sent me down a spyral, kthnx
Someone at Siliconera has daddy issues…
What review is this? It looks like IGN but they gave GoW a 10/10.
Edit: it’s siliconera, not IGN. So many people hating on IGN in this thread not realizing this isn’t even their review.
I mean its part of his development
Kratos yelling at his son and constantly being slightly disappointed reminded me too much of my own father. 5/10
Yup, just conveniently implying that this is an IGN review, which it isn’t, and tricking thousands more people who aren’t diligent enough to check for themselves that IGN is somehow the worst game reviewer.
Who would have thought that a game named “God of War” doesn’t give gamers a perspective on loving family dynamics.
It’s a surprise beyond all others!
Oh boy wait until they see Avengers: Infinity war.
IGN at it again! 7.3/10 Too Much Water.
Imagine telling on your daddy issues like that lmao
Way to grab like the only bad review for the PC port
The actual review is a little more direct that the reviewer simply didn’t care for the story but applauded the port features and gameplay.
I actually loved that kratos was a distant father because it didn’t make me feel bad about my distant father, everytime I see a depiction of a perfect father it just reminds me of everything I didn’t have and it was a painful experience
“God of war”
“Looking for a loving game”
Who the hell plays God of War for a “loving game”?
I really felt the love when Kratos let Posidon’s sex slave, begging him to not leave her, be smashed by a gear/wheel.
SHOULD START INCLUDING TRIGGER WARNINGS ON THE BOX ART
UH EXCUSE ME SWEETY?! PLEASE ADD A TRIGGER WARNING. MY FATHER IS GRUFF AND DISTANT.
Imagine playing a fucking God of War game looking for an emotionally stable father figure.
The current trend of critics moving towards demanding star trek ¨ubermensch with no faults nor demons to deal with, as main characters, is both interesting and alarming.
I’m sorry, but I find perfection extremely dull and boring.
This reminds me of when I saw an article Polygon published about a Far Cry 6(?) review where the reviewer had no problem playing a game where you murder people but cockfighting was taking it too far.
Lol this review was aimed at people who latch onto specific character types as replacement parental figures.
Basically it was aimed at me.
God Of War: Daddy Issues
“A loving game”? This is God of War, not Stardew Valley.
And now he needs a therapist, because the person who wrote that saw your reddit post.
Violence and gore: 🥱
Daddy issues: 😳
Woke reviewer: “Daddy chill*
Kratos: “What is even that?” *decapitates woke reviewer*
God of War was probably the best single player game I’ve played in like 10 years. Maybe RDR2 comes close.
It’s the Siliconera PC review by Dani Maddox.
Im reposting this so more people know the name of both this shitty website and this absolutely moronic reviewer. Dani Maddox, you know nothing about this game and this series, and are a disgrace to have had the audacity to call yourself a video game reviewer and write this.
“If you got daddy issues this game ain’t for you.”
FOOD FOR THOUGHT – With plenty of settings God of War can look great on the PC. – Battles have a nice weight to them, although they begin to feel very repetitive. – BOY.
I didn’t play the same game as them i guess. the story i experienced was a literal god killer war legend, a man hardened by tragedy, who spends the game shedding that past life and the ideologies that led him there and fighting his inner demons in order to grow and change and fulfill his role as a father. They foster trust and companionship and their relationship ends up becoming better and stronger because of their journey together.
Holy shit IGN, this looks awful. Do you not have editors?
It’s PEGI 18 for crying out loud, not to mention that Kratos literally murdered his whole family and then went out on a revenge spree killing EVERY GOD THAT STOOD IN HIS WAY, usually by ripping their bodies in half or like… shoving their heads inside their own assholes.
Who in their right mind would think, ‘Oh yeah, God of War… little Jason will love this. We’ll have family game night with grandma this Sunday!’. Fuck off IGN.
Reviewer definitely has some father issues.
Reviewing something for being it isn’t. Like saying people will hate if they get scared while playing a horror game.
