Thursday night, I was sitting on the couch wondering if my second wind would kick in. The week was almost over, and I hadn’t played anything since Saturday. Not even a couple of games of Cartographers on my phone! Rabbit came in and checked on me, and asked about my plans for the night. That’s when I decided I would finally sit up and play God of War Ragnarok.
Tired, stressed, and almost making myself play games. Not a great place to start to try and relax from. But 10 minutes into God of War Ragnarok, I felt considerably more relaxed and content than I had in a couple of weeks!
I only played for the first couple of hours. My thinking was I would sit and get things in, and at worst restart on the weekend once I felt better. God of War Ragnarok was like putting on your favourite jacket. I was instantly pulled into the game. I enjoyed the no-nonsense straight into the deep-end introduction.
If you played God of War 2018, you have a pretty good idea of what I mean. God of War Ragnarok did dial this up to 11 though. There was action, emotion, mystery and of course tutorial prompts. It was amazing! 🙂
It might be Christmas before I play God of War Ragnarok again. There is a solid chance I will replay the first section again. Not because I was unhappy with my progress, but because I would like Rabbit to see the first hour especially. Also, I do need to cement the controls into my muscle memory. Bloodborne and Callisto Protocol coupled with being tired means dodging is interesting at the moment!
It will be good to make my way through God of War Ragnarok over the break. I don’t think I will finish it before 2023, but I intend to make a solid dent in the story at least.
