WTF happened to Xbox? Where are the REAL exclusives? "Console" and "timed" aka FAKE exclusives are NOT enough.

This new God of War has reinvented Kratos. Now he is actually interesting as a character, a depressed and tormented father with a checkered and secretive past, who was initially reluctant to be drawn into any action or confrontation. That is called character depth. In term of storytelling, the reluctant, retired hero who was forced into action is always more interesting than the "I am looking for a fight because I am such a badass" protagonist, (whose shallowness seems to appeal to only young male gamers.)

It's strange how shallow characters can be popular because of "cool" factor huh? I guess it's no different from a female chracter being popular just because she's hot.

Anyway, they seemed to have made all the right choices with the new game. It basically is the tonal opposite if the other games in the franchise. I think games like this showcase how developers and storytelling have only evolved.

I own an Xbox One X because I don't have the money for a high-end PC and my old one plays all the classics I care for. I use the 1X for the following games:

-Forza Horizon series
-Rare Replay Value
-Sunset Overdrive
-Quantum Break
-Fable Trilogy(2 isn't available on PC)
-Gears of War series
-Halo: The Masterchief Collection
-D4
-State of Decay
-Killer Instinct
-Ryse: Son of Rome
-Cuphead
