post about how I wish I could get into God of War and how my pride was preventing me from lowering the difficulty to easy and how I just didn't give two shits about the franchise, even knowing the impact the series has on the gaming industry. And I quote (erm, myself): "I think I spent about three or four hours trying to get into the first God of War (HD) and all I can take away from it was that it had a fun sex minigame.As I scavenge my brain I recall some pretty badass boss battles, too. But, dammit, for whatever reason I couldn’t get into it. This could be because of two reasons:
- I suck at hack ‘n slash games. I just do. Button mashing only gets me so far, and once actual combos are required to proceed I get frustrated and rage quit all over my face. See: Bayonetta. But that brings up a good point — I had to lower Bayonetta’s difficulty to easy, but once I did I really enjoyed the freakin’ game . Maybe I should just swallow my gaming pride, accept the fact that hack ‘n slashes just ain’t my forte and play on pussy mode.
- The…story? Is there even a story in God of War? I know that’s a silly question — of course there’s a story — but I never got into it. That was probably related to the hack ‘n slash suckery you read about above. I spent so much time rage-quitting I didn’t get into the real meat (ahem) of Kratos."
