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

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

Natsu Dragneel : Remember when this channel would actually sin games for actual messups/mishaps instead of nitpicking things that are personel prefrence? Me neither.

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.

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

Izzy : One word: *BOY*

Jeff The Gamer 142 : *takes deep breath* Boi

Azure Lastation : 1 like = 1 boy

Cross Bones : no way people saw the loki twist coming gtfo

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.

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

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.

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

TopKing63 : I would still play God of Infinity War

Heavy Troll Guy : Kratos impaled the Hydra on a ship as a first boss in the series and his dad was Zeus. He was born with godlike strength for sure.

Digitallus : Watching Dartigan’s video I’ve noticed you two seem to share an eerie amount of similar sins, almost down to the words themselves. Dartigan uploaded his video May 5th, I highly doubt this is a coincidence you uploaded yours almost 5 weeks later with almost exact sins.

HKGaming_1738. : 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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Jay Langham : The Blades of Chaos aren’t a product of the 9 realms so they should be able to create fire in Helheim

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

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

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

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

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

Sarah lee : Tc carson played Kratos in all 7 God of war GAME'S from to 2005 to 2017 and he was replaced because of the facial cam said on Twitter he would love to play as Kratos again

Jack Shroom : Holy crap so im not the only one who played onimusha games! i would send you 10000000 internets to sin one of those games or hell even the whole series.

The Looinrims : *B O I* of War

Borknut the Third : Here we go. 1:11 Throughout the game, Kratos’ strength fluctuates when he needs it. You don’t need enough strength to chop down a tree as you do flipping a temple. His strength level changes to accommodate that. 1:19 Does it really have that many cutscenes? I think it was amazing how they managed to keep every one of them interesting and still have great gameplay. 2:15 First, it’s not preventing you from doing anything. Second, having Atreus actually notice your actions was a nice move by the developers. 2:20 they’re trying to make it more realistic. No living being God or man can propel themselves upwards in the middle of a jump unless they can fly. 2:23 They’re making the gameplay more strategic than the previous God of War games. Not all strategic combat is Dark Souls by the way. 3:00 Why is that a sin? OCD is strong, man. 3:07 What would you prefer? Micro transactions? It’s simply a way of giving you resources. Accept it. 3:33 While I agree that they should’ve had more diverse bosses, remember they have a budget. They can’t design a new boss every twelve minutes. 4:25 That would be Atreus’s character development. Not a sin. 4:31 As I said. Kratos’ character development. He’s changed. Not a sin. 4:58 Baldur is coming after a giant, who he assumes is Kratos. A real giant would know exactly why he was there. But Kratos isn’t a giant. 5:24 Just because it reminds you of something, It’s a sin? 6:06 your opinion, Not a sin. 6:46 you think that just because Kratos told him that, he lost all his emotions? Kratos told him to try. He’s not going to succeed instantly. He’s a kid. 7:32 I completely agree. The armor in the beginning looks the best, and they should’ve just had the healing factor and level ups. 8:04 Thing reminds you of something? Sin it! 8:20 tiny lull in the gameplay for like half a minute? Sin it? 8:30 the only two people Atreus knows is his mother and his father. His definition of “normal” may be a little different than ours. 8:59 the literal only one in the game, that they put there to prompt an interaction with Atreus. 9:06 the Mark hides them from Odin’s senses, it doesn’t make them literally invisible to any form of god 9:12 isn’t it better that he’s our friend? We fight a damn dragon later, and your complaining about not getting to fight a friendly giant snake. 11:42 Agreed. Absolutely agreed. 12:23 Exactly. She literally teleported. Not conveniently. She just teleported there using her magic. 16:14 LMAO 16:41 It’s not hard to assume that he killed him. 16:54 Odin only knows there is a giant. He doesn’t know his or her appearance, he can just sense the presence of one. Baldur can too, he just doesn’t know the giant is a bunch of ashes in a bag on Kratos’ hip. 17:22 Mimir has been imprisoned for hundreds of years. He knows the history, not everything that’s happening even now. 22:14 we have no idea what happened, and the director says they’re saving it for future games. 23:50 Kratos can survive because of the warmth of the Blades of Chaos. 23:56 thing reminds you of another thing? Sin it! 26:38 No NORSE magic. The blades are from Greece, so their magic can work where the Norse can’t. 27:44 except you don’t have to go to Niflheim to finish the game. It’s just an option. 29:06 no. Translation: Get ready for the final boss. 30:41 Correct 33:27 You have to pick up on the nuances to get it. If they hadn’t dropped any clues, it would have seemed too random. By the way, I prefer Dartigan.

night ghost : 20:52 I can hear kratos say that all day Who's with me 😎

PURGE JMI : Hopefully when the over the shoulder view The Last of Us gameplay esk trend is over, we'll at last, get another true god of war game.

JayHog1992 : To one of the sins, Freya might not never heard Kratos name, but the fact she already knew he was a god might had been a hint that she knew him better than just "A god of another world".

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.

Noah Stephens : Also the only reason the flames from the blades of chaos can burn the hels bramble is because they are NOT from the 9 realms in NORSE mythology. They're from GREEK mythology

Jmhike DelosSantos : 1 Like = 1 Boy

Andre' Shields : Takes one look at the title..."You do not want this fight"

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

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

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.

MortalBLAST : 16:14 lmao!!!

QUE ?! : he said that he would never fall for the super strong character dying on the first encaunter, but he also sin the fact that poseidon was a much better first boss...who dies on that first encaunter,...even tho i agree with the fact that it was obvious this guy(the god) wasnt going to die

solesurvivor5 : 23:05 I always though they were the same blades throughout the Greek saga, Athena recovered them after the battle with Ares and blessed them at the end of GoW1 to convert them into Athena's blades. Then again she embued them with the souls of his fallen Spartan brothers and renamed them the Blades of Exile. Essentially the same weapon underneah the surface. When he betrayed her for the last time after killing Zeus they reverted back to their original form. Just a theory but works to explain why they are still called the blades of chaos.

Spencer Sharpe : I agree, this dark souls type combat isn’t the hypest shit. Heck for as much as I’m hyped for Code Vein, I’m still more interested in fast paced hack and slash combat that thankfully Devil May Cry 5 still has.

Noah Smith : I'm disappointed that you sinned the elevators and hallways disguised as loading screens, and failed to mention that those existed for the purpose of the entire game taking place from one continuous camera view. That is not something easy to do, the entire game had to be set up in a way to make it possible

Makareno94 : And okay this is much older Kratos who had his stomach pierced at least twice already... and second time he released all the "hope" McGaffin... which probably made him weaker than he before... Yes him flipping the whole temple is probably made easier because of mechanisms..

Harley J. Knight : "Kratos wasnt born a god" So were all forgetting the fact that Zeus was still his blood father at the end of the day, therefore making him, wait for it, a god
