PSXE Poll Update: GoWIII Lives Up To Its Massive Hype
When there's as much hype surrounding a game like God of War III, it may seem almost impossible for the title in question to reach such lofty anticipated levels.
But as far as most of our readers are concerned, the most recent Kratos masterpiece does indeed live up to the massive amount of accumulated hype; the majority even say it's one of the best games they've ever played. That's hardly a huge surprise, though, considering the super high review scores and overwhelmingly positive response from the public. There's little doubt that this one solidifies the franchise's place in history and in truth, we could be looking at the greatest video game trilogy of all time. There's almost nothing wrong with the third game - despite a few minor platforming issues - and the level of visceral entertainment, provided by brutal insanity and nearly perfectly honed controls, is exceedingly impressive. Prior to this poll, we asked to name the one game that has the best shot of winning Game of the Year in 2010, and the majority went with GoWIII. You weren't prophetic; y'all just knew the game would indeed be that good, and there wasn't much argument surrounding the fact.
Now, after a totally insane first quarter, we finally face a bit of a break. April doesn't have the star power of March and even the potential blockbuster for late-April, Red Dead Redemption, has been pushed into May. So you might have some time to catch up on your backlog of games; our question is, what gem from 2009 do you regret missing? Which one will be tops on your "catch-up list?" We'll do bad things to you if you haven't played Uncharted 2 yet... Fair warning.
