Calling on the Sony Boys, Decide, Which is better?

how we got here(not that yall care)

i started playing GoW via Psnow, and i found some glaring issues, most of which i could ignore since it was just related to playing via PSnow. my main issue with it, was the game itself feels like a chore to play, the story is great for the hour i could stomach playing it, but it kinda felt like i was playing in quiicksand.

i asked around and someone suggested just playing it natively on PC, which i refused to do since i wasnt gonna pay for a game that i already felt like wasnt worth the time. since the story is good, i could just watch it on youtube to see how it plays out. i personally think GoW 2018 wouldve been a better TV or movie series(yes i know its in the works).

i redboxxed it and confirmed what i already knew, the game just felt slow. of course there was a massive increase in QoL since im playing on my PC vs the ps3 or ps4 version of GoW, but the true problem faced didnt go away.


moving on to GoT

im currently playing it on PSNow, and this sh*t is fun and the story seems cool so far. after roughly the same hour of playing im far more interested in continuing to play. of course an hour doesn't dictate the entirety of the game, but so far this is a step in the right direction, and at the very least shows it isn't a PSnow problem.


as im sure you prolly skipped all that image

which do you think is better of the 2?
not what you think others think, from you personal experience of either one or both.

GOT might be the most overrated game in quite some time. I don't think people know how to praise something without comparison. It's a dope game , it's just not on an all time level.

GOW>>>>>>

I can't wait to see what they do with GoT2

GoW is better overall in my opinion. But you can't go wrong with either. They're both phenomenal games that deserved GOTY consideration and serve as a highlight of how good Sony has got at developing their exclusives.

GoT obviously performs better since it's newer and currently has a directors cut with performance boosts but 60 fps vs 30 fps and 4k vs 1440/1080 doesn't really matter when you're comparing the overall experience that the game itself provides and when those experiences are much different.

If you're talking two racers, sure, performance will probably have a lot more of an impact.

But here, when it comes to single player story driven games? Nah. Holding on to performance as some sort of difference maker is just lazy comparisons.

GoW just has a more compelling story, and it's scope is perfect for what it aimed to accomplish in my opinion.

GoT is probably the best open-world climber out of all of them out there, but I find GoW's characters, combat, world, and story all more interesting and fun overall.

GoT is a great game but I do agree with @ to the extent that I think it does get overrated by some people.

I think the fact that we have this oversaturation of open-world climbers may play a part in that.

my intent to compare the 2, wasnt the reason i decided to play.

my reason for comparison was the realization that one felt like a chore, and the other doesnt give me that feeling, im asking in general which do you find better, to see if anyone else came to the conclusion i did for thier own reason.

if GoT is overrated then maybe i need to play longer than an hour and see why you say that.

As someone who's played both but beaten neither, and even as a not huge fan of GoW I'm giving it to GoW for sure.

My complaint about GoW is the combat feels underwhelming, for many hours from the start of the game at least.

GoT is a beautifully realised world both graphically and aesthetically but it suffers from the Ubisoft school of open world design. Go here, do x, icon cleared off map? Great, go and do it again somewhere else.

Even with that it's okay to explore simply because of how great it looks, if they made the open world exciting to explore and not cookie cutter then it'd be an easy 9/10 game at least.

Both good games. But I actually thought this wasn't the best GOW. I give the slight edge to GoT here.

Now if you were comparing any other Gow they would win instantly (well not ascension). I was underwhelmed by this GoW story. Can't wait for part two.

Tl;DR I vote GoT

is said the combat was kinda meh in discord and they was giving me heat for that, claimed it was cuz i only played for an 1hr and didnt get the cool sh*t.

good to know i wasnt the only one that felt that way.

i didnt get far enough into GoT to see that downside, maybe ill get to another hour in and have the same realization.
