The first three just never seemed worth the hype they were getting without playing them.  Which is I'm sure a similar feeling to Halo over on the 360 for those stuck to the PS3, but my closest comparison is Devil May Cry and Dante's Inferno, and neither blew my mind.
im sorry but that is dumb justification for dismissing the gow games. dmc plays alot differently than gow, and dante's inferno is a mediocre gow ripoff.
you can go straight to 4 without playing the previous games, but you will not have a full understanding of kratos' motives behind certain actions and his relationship with his son.
there are some characters from the previous games are referenced in 4, significant "things" are brought back to symbolize a certain aspect of kratos, and kratos' 180 character shift is directly related to something that has happened in gow 3 "the cycle".

The story aspect I wasn't interested in for the first three games, so I'm not too worried about that.  Big Spartan guy gets family killed because he meddled with the gods looking for power, wears their ashes in atonement, as you typically do, goes around killing the gods he places the blame on for putting him in this predicament, bangs the female ones because sex sells, the son's probably one of theirs and is the heir to the Greek Pantheon.  Though I'd like to see what they'll do if that's incorrect.

And I'm aware Devil May Cry is not exactly the same, and Dante's Inferno was, well, exactly what you said, a mediocre rip-off, but it's more that type of combo-building hack and slash gameplay I meant I never really got into.  Except, again, Kingdom Hearts, and that's a whole different beast.

I just wanted to say, the original God of War games never caught my eye except seeing how great they were doing for the PlayStation brand.  This one does appear interesting with its changes, is all.

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Single Player, all difficulty modes

The best stealth experience I've had growing up is still timeless today. While I wish that I grew up with the PS2 (since Metal Gear and Splinter Cell are on that console as well), I feel like I didn't miss out. Chaos Theory is the pinnacle of the franchise as a stealth game. I've been missing this kind of experience ever since a different team of staff members, some coming from Rainbow Six Vegas, turn the series into a Tactical Shooter. Admittedly, it was not troublesome enough for me to beat all three difficulty modes since I'm not a kid anymore, which means that sneaking past guards and leaving them untouched is quite effortless. Then again, that's coming from someone who grew up with the series, and, for a kid, beat the whole game at Normal with a 100% efficiency rating even at harder missions like Seoul and the dreaded Bathhouse.

With the anticipation of a new Splinter Cell game at the verge of being announced this year, and Splinter Cell DLC for Ghost Recon Wildlands starring the iconic Sam Fisher preceding it sprinkled with the reprisal of Michael Ironside in the role after beating prostate cancer (which is why Eric Johnson portrayed Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell: Blacklist), it's good to be a Splinter Cell fan. It's also sad for me to be a Metal Gear fan as well though because Sam Fisher truly is the only one left of his kind. We may likely never see Gabe Logan or Snake ever again.

Kratos' motivations in the original trilogy really weren't that deep. He's trying to kill Zeus because he betrayed him out of fear. He's killing everyone else because they're in his way. That's pretty much it.

I can think of one person that maaay be cause for concern, but he calls them by name and just Youtubing GOW3's ending will help with that. Everything else is explained thoroughly enough IMO. He'll be fine.

You are very wrong lol.  :)

Cool, that seems the too blatantly obvious route to go if I could pick it up without playing the game and only go by hearsay of how they went, and that wouldn't be too fun.

Maplestory 2 Close Beta Test is about to end in a few hours.

My impression:
This game went 3D without losing it's charm, the colorful and cartoony (or rather animesque) style is still there.
It got rid of the Job Advancements and went straight for a skill tree you can build up from the beginning.
Next to the story mode, there were enough things to keep you busy, like exploration, party dungeons, world bosses, hidden treasures, fishing, playing music, crafting, pvp and various mini games.

I had fun playing with some friends.
Now I need to finish Axiom Verge, whenever that happens lol

God of War PS4

Fantastic game. It doesn't have the same impact as much as the older ones do. There's no climbing on GIANT monsters to kill them. But some enemies are tough. I'm planning on 1000%'ing it. Still have like 3 trophies to get.
The powering up armor system could be a little better. You need very specific items to level up specific sets of armor. You dont really find that out in game. You just end up assuming it later. I found myself looking up a guide to find the last item to power up the set I wear instead of finding it naturally.
The story line is pretty good. They leave an opening for a 5 but it's up in the air if there will be one.
The replay aspect isn't 100% there, but I've finished the story line and plan to track down the odds n ends to 1000% it.
