Been a busy weekend for me!
God of War, This game blew me out of my socks. I remember getting it and thought "well I guess I'm just gonna beat up some gods while grunting a bit". This game are really one of those type of "It's all about the Journey". You as a player could tell that this was just the first part in a series (especially if you are well acquainted with Norse Mythology. I got sucked in and couldn't wait to see what was around the next corner. I "accidentally" managed to plan a cruise to Norway the week after I finished the game which made the whole thing even more amazing in my eyes.
It's not much that can be said that already hasn't been said, but the combat felt amazing and really heavy in away I hadn't felt combat in a game before. Each hit felt like a freight train hitting and the environments all being different and exciting, all to a stellar soundtrack. I hope Ragnarok will be at least as good!
The Last of Us Where do I even start with this one? I borrowed this originally of a friend as I'm normally not much for scary games. This game was really a rollercoaster. It kept me on my toes, had me laughing, screaming, panicing and all those fun emotions, yet I couldn't stop playing! I cared for Ellie in a way I hadn't really done for a videogame character before. Almost in a fatherly way I wanted to keep her close and whisper that everything was gonna be ok. When the remaster got released on PS4 I had to pick it up right away. Also, the game got probably one of the best openings in a game, like, ever?
