Gamers love and want them and they have made a comeback over the last five years. 2018’s God of War proved that to everyone selling 23 million copies as of this writing. These games are what gaming is. Zelda, Mario, Dead Space, BioShock, Onimusha, etc. These games define their generations and help form new beloved characters and worlds for generations to love.
God of War: Ragnarok
What other series than God of War to continue being one of the best single-player games ever made? Its predecessor helped bring it back and show greedy publishers that gamers wnat these. Tens of millions of us. Engaging combat, fantastic characters, lore and world building, gorgeous visuals, tons of puzzles and exploration. This is what the core of a fantastic game is and God of War continues to prove this.
