GCN : To everyone who played a 'Boy' drinking game.....RIP.

Izzy : One word: *BOY*

Captain Eggcellent : 40 minutes? Let me make a cup of tea first.

Etriuswimbleton : -100 sins for mentioning God Hand. *Will you ever do a gaming sins for that game?*

MM TT : For Sin 128, Freya says "No magic in all the 9 nine realms can create a blaze", but the blades are not from the 9 realms so they can still create fire in Helheim.

Jonah Brown : Not enough *b o y* ... +100 sins

Adrian Roach : A. Dislike for sinning the cutscenes that use a revolutionary technology to make the entire game one long scene. B. Don't sin Kratos and his lack of strength. Yes he's a god, but he's trying to live a normal life and forget his past and who he was. C. Yes, he critiques Atreus for his anger, but if you'd pay attention he's teaching him lessons to not become who he once was. I never speak up on these things but don't sin the game for the very things that were designed to be that way because it's part of the bigger story. If you're just going to overlook the entire story, don't make a video on it.

Wolf Of Rebellion : -Previous GoW games also had cutscenes, most of them are pointed at Kratos' past. I see no problem doing the same here. -''Dead family member for motivation'' existed also in previous GoW titles as far as I remember. Kratos murdered whole Greek pantheon because of them. -Kratos does not help Atreus at all during hunting, he in that quest is just a supervisor. You surely don't want your kid to walk alone in the world that is full of trolls, ogres and draugr that are trying to kill him. -Devs themselves said that they wanted to give an impression that game is open-world. -Devs again were inspired by Dark Souls, because in that game you really have to dodge your enemy or they will one-shot kill you. Also combos exist in form of skill trees, unlike in previous titles where you had to collect red orbs to upgrade your weapons and therefore unlock combos. -Idunn Apples and Blood Mead Horns are replacements of Gorgon Eyes and Phoenix Feathers from previous titles. No sin at all. All previous titles had health and mana upgrades. -tbh I'd rather have free in-game loot chests than that garbage microtransactions that EA and Activision titles are so badly overprotective of. In-game loot chests are also practiced by MMOs like World of Warcraft, with exception that you have to do quests or kill world bosses in order to get them. -Kid never killed anything before, it is natural for him to feel remorse for animal. Same goes and for cannibal humans later in game. Kratos just want to teach his son to be strong, as world around him will not be merciful to him. It is very easy to say than to execute. -Trolls and ogres are more like minibosses than actual bosses, like minotaurs and cyclopses in previous titles. -Kratos in this new title is older, therefore more wise. He burnt out all rage to all who wronged him and wanted to rebuild new life from scratch on other side of the world. It's not anything new that age brings calmness and wisdom and that parent wants for their kid to be better than him. -Baldur (or Stranger when you meet him for first time) during whole game is implying that he has literally no feeling of pain due that his mother Freya placed a spell on him to prevent his death. Because of that, he grew extremely psychotic and wanted to fight anything anyway for sake of ''feeling something'', including and Kratos. -Brok and Sindri are intentionally made to be some sort of ''comic relief''. And dwarves from actual Norse mythology are considered as comic interpretation by modern historians. -I am very glad that sex minigames are removed from new title. I am NOT being that feminist cunt, but in previous titles they felt so out of place and Kratos' character. Kratos mourned his dead family and literally worn their ashes on his skin, and having sex with hookers felt so out of that whole premise of avenging the family. -To be fair, Kratos and his new family lived in isolation and were protected by marked trees, so it is no wonder that Atreus thinks that his dad is human and thinks that humans actually can lift trees and boulders. -Tyr was considered as traitor by his Aesir comrades in this title because he was traveler and wanted peace between giants and gods. You get the rest of ''not trusting outsiders'' picture. -SPOILER - Atreus is named Loki by his mom and rest of giants. In actual Norse myth, Loki is father of World Serpent (seen in game), wolf Fenrir, goddess Hel and in form of mare, he gave birth to eight-legged horse Sleipnir. Of course you ain't gonna fight your own son. And on mural at the end of game, you can see Atreus/Loki spitting out World Serpent. -I think every world in GoW series, much like in actual pre-christian European folklore have their own sisters of fate. In Norse myth, they are called Norns, so it means that sisters of fate in Greek world do not have power in Norse world. -Norse travelling rune to Alfheim is nod to previous GoW titles, not actually sign of coexistence in unison. -Wolvers (or werewolves) existed in all pre-christian European myths, no wonder that they appear and in this game. -Reason why Kratos has different voice actor is because he is older in this title. Any person does not sound the same like they did in their youths. I am sure that Zeus didn't sound raspy and old in his teenhood. Athena has same voice actor, because she is goddess (or more like haunting image) and gods don't age. Also behind the scenes says that Christopher Judge (Kratos) and Sunny Suljic (Atreus) liked each other, like actual father and son. -that bird in Helheim is giant named Hræsvelg and in actual Norse literature, it is believed that cold winds are created from flaps of his wings. Also he is watcher of Helheim and here is on the other side of the bridge. Freya said to Kratos to not cross the bridge and to kill only bridge keeper. -Freya actually said that fires of all Nine Realms do not function in Helheim, so Blades of Chaos can function since they are not from Nine Realms. -Niflheim is completely optional realm, much like Muspelheim. It is intentionally designed for killing time in game and for leveling up your gear and skills with controller. -I personally don't like how Helheim is represented in game like judeo-christian hell. Helheim is supposed to be resting place for people who did nothing significant or virtuous to their society and died from old age and illness, not a place where souls are tortured by images of their bad past. If they wanted to give an impression of bad afterlife place, they should've included Nastrond - region in Helheim where family-murderers, adulterers and oath breakers swim in serpent venom and are chewed by dragon Nidhoggr. -Ratatoskr has intentionally 167 seconds cooldown, because devs didn't want to make the game easy by constantly summoning him to give you health and Spartan Rage stones. -Kratos abandoned godhood in previous titles, so he is now demigod. Remember how Zeus stabbed him with Blade of Olympus and thought that he is dead? -to be honest, not everybody knows Norse mythology, nor they read Prose/Poetic Eddas and reveal that Atreus is Loki and that he is father of World Serpent would come as actual surprise to those people. -I highly doubt that there will be DLC for this title. And Thor is really not from Marvel comics. That ending is more like foreshadowing of future battle with him, since you killed his sons Magni and Modi and that probably pissed him off. I usually hate writing long comments, but yeah. Have fun reading all of that lol

Audrix : 31:22 Longest. Sin. Ever.

TaurusOxford : To be fair, Kratos was technically a God before he got the throne as the God of War. Demi-god sure, but he still had God-like abilities.

Azure Lastation : 1 like = 1 boy

Zwyrx Hgqfyggz : 5:24 23:56 *THIS* Is why i love you, GamingSins Also... **Breath in** *B O I*

Payne 404 : The game that gave meaning to the word boi 😂

Kenti : It's 5:40 AM and I'm bored... 4:29 Oh yes let's just use examples of only younger Kratos not practicing what he is preaching, because that's always fair. 5:24 Yes, because people don't lie. Ever. 6:20 Better than a loading screen with a little revolving circle. 7:49 No...what? No, of course not, Atreus not being able to do what's necessary to complete the journey but then proving that wrong is the whole point of at least the first act or so of the game. 8:00 Baldur and Thor's sons aren't boss battles? 8:41 Gods, and just people in general, have always shown to be giant pieces of shit, what makes you think Odin wouldn't judge Kratos for being an outsider even if Odin himself was one in other lands? Also, Tyr wouldn't be unkind to Kratos, because he's dead, so mute point. 9:26 Or the ancient serpent is just wise enough to know. 12:00 Well, what are you expecting, the snow to fall into the forest? 13:11 Each pantheon is responsible for their land, the Greek pantheon is responsible Greece, the Egyptian pantheon for Egypt, etc, there's no reason for fate of different lands to be controlled by different entities. 17:53 A bluff. 18:51 Why would you sin the game for a plot hole in Nordic Myth? 19:33 Mimir agreed which implies he also believes it which might as well mean that he had said it. 23:27 The fact that he still has them just goes to show you how much he really cannot escape what he was. 24:34 Just because the only way Kratos can move the Winds of Hel is with the Blades of Chaos, it doesn't mean Tyr couldn't move them with something else of his own creation, perhaps. 25:08 Hold the fuck up, saved what humanity? You literally just said he caused a world wide *apocalypse*. Seems like a pretty big consequence to me. 26:33 Wasn't there an interaction later on that revealed that Odin had blocked Mimir's mind from knowing certain details about Baldur, including his weakness to mistletoe and, most likely, who his mother is? 26:38 That's the whole point of bringing the Blades of Chaos along, they're the only one that are powerful enough to burn in Hel. Also, the fact that the blades use Greek magic and not Nordic magic may affect the "no magic" thing. 27:34 Not even Mimir knew about needing the eyes thing to unlock the message, he only guessed so. 29:32 Why? The serpent is lying down so why would the statue flow all the way down as if it were downstream? 30:14 She could've figured it out, right? His name must be pretty famous considering he took down the entire Greek pantheon. 31:29 - 33:00 That was so fucking obnoxious, holy fuck don't ever do that again. Anyways, just because you mention ever detail doesn't mean the prophecy does, and if it did, it doesn't even matter, it's prophecy, there's no "too many actions" limit, you predict shit and it comes true, that's it. 33:27 As others have pointed out: Bullshit, you unless you know and remember a bunch of names and events from Nordic mythology you wouldn't be able to tell shit. 31 video sins because I'm counting that two minute and half sin shit for 10.

O-Dog : no way people saw the loki twist coming gtfo

RedHood : Kratos actually quotes Zues from God of War 2. When he kills Baldur for the second time.

Under Grounder : If I ever create a game I'll call it "The Last of the WItcher Elder God of Scoll Wars: Wild Hunt for the Tomb Raider of Horizon Zero Skyrim Dawn". I wish I made that up! xD

AquaSaige14 : Sin 119: Technically Kratos is a demigod since Zeus was revealed to be his biological father at the end of the second game and his mother is in fact a full mortal. Not nickpicking but thought I clear that up the confusion

Jeff The Gamer 142 : *takes deep breath* Boi

I am a PERSON : I thought of a less confusing name for this game. God of War: Kratos and Boy

Audam : Just started the video and if there is no speed round of every boy in the game then I'm dissapoint. Edit: I was not dissapoint.

Fallout Wasteland : 23:36. Actually they were going to bring back the original voice actor but do to the difficulties with the motion they had to find an actor who matched the size and voice for the character and they got christopher

codecatx5 : You do also realize that most peoples knowledge with Norse mythology is actually through the MCU and Marvel right? So, I had no clue he'd be Loki at all.

Altair DeSanta : Paying attention to nuances isn’t the same as having extensive knowledge of Norse mythology... if you don’t know all those things Atreus being Loki does come out of no where

EMİR KAZANCI : When you can't remember your son's name:Boy or boi intensifies

Lord Flufflebuns : Yea, pretty sure a game having "3rd Person Over the Shoulder Lock-On heavy hitting" combat doesn't make it Dark Souls Styled. I used to get annoyed when people tried to say games WEREN'T Dark Soul-Styled when they clearly were. Now I get annoyed when people make a blatantly wrong comparison and say it IS like Dark Souls.

Anthony Roberts : She said no magic in all the 9 realms would work. Blades of chaos are not from the 9 realms, which is why they work.

TopKing63 : I would still play God of Infinity War

Zero The Bloodedge : Don't mention Onimusha... I'm still waiting hopefully that Capcom takes its head from their asses and release a new game in the series.

sgt Hale107 : What came first, the Dad or the *BOI*

culer O'connor : The word BOY just lost sense completly to me Spoiler alert word boy it's mentioned. 358 times lol 😆

Mr. Roboto : Didn't take a few sins off for the Sigrun Boss Fight? Shame on you.

Lucis Sanada : There are so many things wrong with this video, pointing them out would take forever.

Oblivious : Oh, good. I needed something to watch during lunch.

Tudor Ciubotaru : I literally devoured the game and I was amazed, but now, that the hype settled and I calmed down, I find SO DAMN MANY problems with it: it's rpg system is pure crap, the bosses are forgettable (with a few exceptions), fighting is clearly changed to the worse and... meh... I liked it, but I want the sequel to be FULLY action-oriented, like the previous games in the series.

Legend Ary : god of war combat is far superior to darks souls the whole point though is that kratos is old and while still strong he isn't going to be as fast or agile so the slowed down pace is needed and the over the shoulder makes that more interesting to look at as well as making the axe throwing feel fluid

Jersey Gamer : I think Dad of Boi is a more appropriate title.

Termi : The series became just another Westerner, albeit 10x better than the average one.

Nevvon Dennis : Lol, he literally used Kratos' past to prove a point of the sin. There was this 1 comic issue of God of War and Kratos claimed that he was trying to control his anger from then on. I guess the comics don't matter in this game, just like the comics for Halo didn't matter in Halo 2 Anniversary. Cool video, though.

TheMasterQuests : I would like to see the God of War go up against The Mad Titan. That'd be very interesting.

Iron Templar : ok in defense of the atraius should know his dads a god. remember hes live in isolation from pretty much everyone the only thing atraius would know for sure is his Dad is stronger than both him and his mother. however he has no other human to base what is ordinary. and even so seeing Kratos easily kill those people doesn't nessasarly help either children tend to think their father is superman until they grow up, but in the case of atraius his father essentially is a god so theirs nothing to destroy that image. I mean if you grew up in a town where everyone was a musclebound bodybuilder you would think that was the norm

MJG_beast : Freya said magic from the 9 realms wouldn’t work in Helheim and technically the blades aren’t from any of those 9 realms.

CthulhuChow : now that's alot of boi

That Guy : As much as I love this game I can admit that it isn't perfect. I can agree with a lot of the sins, but I have to disagree with some of them. I get that this is supposed to be a mostly negative video but I feel he doesn't give the game enough credit

WolfPack Leader : Eh I prefer the older God of War games.

Fallout Wasteland : 26:52 because they are made from the blades of chaos

Artydomi : GCN Sins 2018's best game... *DAD of BOY*

Xaveon Amaker : I like the new voice actor better

HKGaming : For sin 129 Freya says nothing in the 9 realms can set that strong of a blaze. But the Blades Of Chaos aren't from the 9 realms.

Kit Andrei Maniquis : Heyo GCN , the sin where the Blades of Chaos is kept would only reminds him of his horrifying past is reasonably not a sin. He said it himself. “Always anticipate an attack.” He said, he’s a warrior , meaning he’s always ready for a fight. He’s also travelled to a strange new land without knowledge of its inhabitants, i think it’s pretty reasonable to keep for his sake.
