  1. More choice and lack of exclusives is positive.

    Personally I really don’t care.

    I’m not into this 3rd person console trash. They can keep it on the Playstation for all I care :p

  2. Sooooo f*cking happy to see one of my favorite games of the 8th generation showing up on PC. Like with [I]Horizon Zero Dawn[/I], I very badly wished [I]God of War 4[/I] was on PC when I was playing it on PS4, and I never would have touched it on console if I knew it was coming to PC. Better late than never though. At least I only had to pay $10 for a physical copy of the game back in 2019.

    While I enjoyed previous [I]God of War[/I] games (although I thought most of ’em were a bit too hard), especially [I]3[/I] on PS3 and [I]Ghost of Sparta[/I] on PSP, I was never really into the series. [I]God of War 4[/I] surprised the f*ck outta me. That sh1t grabbed me and did not let go until the very end. It was an amazing ride the whole way through. I had a f*cking blast pretty much the entire time. Just an excellent game all around. A very memorable video gaming experience. Cory Barlog and his crew really busted their @sses off, and it shows. The game’s development took a heavy toll on him, and he came out the other side looking noticeably worn, tired, and older, but all his efforts really f*ckin paid off. A game like this should [I]not[/I] be locked to one platform. Again, I can NOT express how happy I am that it will finally be available on PC.

    D4mn straight. Personally I feel that every single video game should be available on the platform where it runs, looks, and plays best – PC.

    I mean, I wouldnt FORCE anyone to port their title to all platforms. That could quickly get out of hand, but I would support some kind of measures to prevent exclusives by design. And not just platform based, but store/launcher based as well.
