God of War Review Reaction Video from Director Cory Barlog

Follow by Email
First, sorry about the quality. Shot on my macbook webcam. So, I thought a lot about whether or not to upload but then I thought of what my son, Helo, is going through right now. He doesn't want us to be around when he is sad, opting to run in another room and yell at us if we try to come in. It has been important to us to let him know that it is OK to be sad, it is OK to cry. There is nothing to hide. I thought I would try to set a good example and show him that papa can cry in front of the world, or at least the 50 people who end up watching this. :) This is for you, Helo. Papa loves you.

Comments from Youtube

Kratos : you did well boy

Tactical Chunder : You created one of the greatest games of all time.

Giggityman0273 : Game of the Year, God of the Year

Doctor Dex : the only bad thing about this game is that it ends

Cody Felts : This is what we as gamers need more of. Developers who make a game first, and pour their heart into it to sell it as just that. A game they hope we love as much as them. While the number of publishers that start with the "How can we make as much money as possible" mindset grows, I'll be paying extra close attention to companies like this. Don't sell me loot boxes... sell me something you love.

CosmicKitten10 : _"or at least the 50 people who end up watching this"_ *_1.5million views later..._*

Sheldon Kelly : You think you call that crying should have seen me when i got the blades of choas back

Jickamanger : Hey EA. Look at Sony over here. Not interfering with the games they're producing. Look at that. GOW just got the game of the year award. Oh hey look Battlefield V reviews came in Mediocre for a triple a game, unfinished, buggy. Look At That

Paul Marks : All devs should be like this, Not just looking to milk us dry, but actually care.

The Furschlong : People who say Rockstar put in more work in RDR 2 than Santa Monica need to watch this dog. Cory took a massive risk with taking a franchise which lets be honest was dying down and the only people playing were hardcore fans, and complete 180'd a franchise and somehow made a classic PS exclusive even better. I mean RDR 2 had a formula of success and took the best parts that made RDR amazing to next level with its new engine. Cory literally had to come up with a new story, characters, world, setting, gameplay, graphics, look, etc. I mean the only thing this new GoW has in common is its brutality, Kratos, and Kratos past.

Matt Damon : Glad I'm not the only one that decided to come back and watch this after the great news of GOW4 winning GOTY.

tRapdontRap : "5 years of work have gone into this I wanna see the critic score to see if my game is fun and good" EA: how many loot boxes have been purchased by plebians so far?

Grant Reid : This is why God Of war won GOTY, look at passion here

Riddle ??? : 95 Metacritic ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Congratulations!!!

Brendan Lucero : It will be remembered for ages. Unlike Call of Destiny Creed 5000 rise of the Microtransactions.

Brannon H : This was the closest experience I've had that compares to the first time I played The Last of Us. I'm glad I bought it day 1 and I'm glad Y'all got the Game Awards Game of the Year.

Liahona Dumdum : Almost a year after release, Mr. Cory, and I am still in deep love with this game.

Chalice Jones : one of the nicest directors.

PowerPyx : You're a legend Cory. If someone plays this and still doesn't think video games are art, I don't know what is!

Patrick Richard : We need more game developers like Cory Barlog. It is refreshing to see a game developer so passionated about their work. Thank you, sir, for making such a great game. Itโ€™s one of the best experiences Iโ€™ve ever had. Thank you for making a guy suffering with depression feel a bit better. Cheers from Denmark!

Aramis Rodriguez : I bought a PS4 after being an Xbox gamer for 8 years to play this and Spider-Man. I beat Spider-Man and now Iโ€™m playing through god of war and I hands down see why it won game of the year . Absolutely amazing.

Suck Mydick : This is how a game developer should feel about their product

WindTheBrave : Most developers nowadays, especially big time ones, would look in anticipation for the sales of the game, while you look forward to the reviews because you truly care about your work with a passion. That is what sets you and a select few others apart from the rest nowadays.

Trent Strickland : Barlog and his team poured their blood and sweat into this game. Their heart and soul. Their passion and their love. Who wouldn't be overcome with raw emotion when you see that all that struggle, all the late nights, the fun, the arguments, the doubt, the fear and the exhaustion finally paid off. We the audience are the lucky ones. We get to enjoy the game. The people who made it deserve all the accolades and the money.

IGotAlotOfSocks : This should go out to all the idiots that say single player games are dead.

NataN : *"READ IT BOI"*

kykw33e : if only bethesda cared as much as this.

Filip Babic : This man is a gift from God But not Zeus, nobody likes Zeus

DS_Fitz : You can tell they poured their heart and soul into the game and well deservedly won game of the year

SliderFury1 : So a 95 metacritic is one thing. But a 9.1 *USER* rating with over a thousand votes? That's a whole nother levelโ€ฆ

Xnx Gaming : So I just finished this...IT DESERVES Game Of The Year Award.

Pablo Rivera : Im from the future and god of war is gonna win game of the year
