Play Legit’s 2018 Game of The Year

We were taken to Epic Worlds, introduced to instantly memorable characters.  Familiar Franchises took major risks, that paid off big.  Gaming experiences were filled with well designed levels, outstanding soundtracks, tighter controls, unique multiplayer components.  We can say 2018 was a surprise.  There was a lot to take away from it.  AAA and Indie Studios both represented.  We can’t thank everyone enough who had a hand in bringing us so many New Classics.  Play Legit Proudly Presents our Game of The Year.

God of War

You don’t need to know anything about the old games to enjoy this, but if you do, you’ll be drawing parallels throughout. There’s a couple moments in the game that harken back to the old titles in a spectacular fashion, transcending nostalgia and really emotionally connecting with the past. But those moments are still effective to new players and are presented with white knuckled energy. The relationship between Kratos and Atreus is a memorable one and the story arch for all of the characters in the game is satisfying in ways most games can’t pull off. What a sequel to this will be like is anyone’s guess, but it will certainly have a high bar to meet. In many ways, this feels like a game that will never be bested, only riffed on and expanded on. Like Breath of the Wild last year, God of War is this year’s untouchable masterpiece, an achievement in gaming that you will be spoiled by every time you turn it on. If you own a PS4, Pro or not, this is the game you have been waiting for. -Zombie Zac
