Question is, will the crack in Necrokiller's avatar or the additional PC features fix his isssues with GOW's gameplay? :LOL:

Combat doesn't work well in crowd control situations at higher difficulties. The combat arenas feel too tight and FoV begins to feel too narrow and you are constantly getting hit by off screen enemies to complete any basic combo. Souls games and BB suffers from this as well but to a lesser degree. You can't attack left or right as effeciently (in Souls games you have some degree of control to attack on the sides if you haven't locked in on any enemy). Turning off "recentre camera" helps but animations take too long to catch up to the number of enemies on screen. This is when Kratos feels like a tank to control since you have to align the camera to bring the enemy reasonably in front of you to land attacks. And the heavy attack don't always start a juggle. The animation is quite long so its always a gamble since enemies can kill you with 1-2 hits. Atreus commands aren't reliable and threat indicators are absolutely necessary if you want to survive at all.

Give Me God of War basically forces you to cheese enemies. That's why the challenge wasn't fun and plenty of people dropped down the difficulty since it feels cumbersome and not rewarding.
Thordi cheese mujhay bhi bhej dou. Elden Ring boss fights mein kaam aye gi 🤣

Actually believing such exaggeration when it has already been possible to play via mouse and kb (or the controller in the right hand) with configured deadzone via your favorite XIM/Chronus devices 🤣

Moreover, how does the input device alter your issues with the camera? 🤷‍♂️ :LOL:

Will the PC version finally make it so that Give Me God of War doesn't "[force] you to cheese enemies"? In the original, "that's why the challenge wasn't fun and plenty of people dropped down the difficulty since it feels cumbersome and not rewarding" 🤷‍♂️ :LOL:

the ONCE acclaimed steam controller went for 5$ a pop. jealous you say :p
Tum $5 ka hi le lete jaani, chalana to PC pe hi hai ;)

waisay seriously, never once I thought on my 2 playthroughs that "This needs a keyboard and mouse"..I think a controller is still the best option for GOW
As with anything that requires aiming, its serviceable on a controller, best on a mouse. For those who don't want to use keyboard, they can still use a Steam Controller (or Steam Deck) that can provide options from both.

    Pretty sure they won't be awarding a non-indie game in the presence of a 90+ (or close to it) indie game 🤷‍♂️:LOL:
    If that was true, Inside would've been the GoTY in 2016. So, your reasoning is still not making sense 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

    Has a non-indie game won anything from them in the last 3 years. It Takes Two will take (pun intended) it this year 🤣
    That doesn't mean they were suddenly "more interested" in awarding an indie game. It just happened to be better than the competition :LOL:

    So we can say they are "more interested" in awarding AAA games when an indie doesn't win. Works both ways 🤷‍♂️

    Untitled Goooose game ran away with Sekiro/RE2 (still don't know which one got the Meta-certified win 🤔) Oscars 🤣
    I'm guessing if the result was according to your satisfaction you would've told us. All sources are public, ya know :ROFLMAO:
