It's one of the most revered franchises in video game history.
In fact, the first three titles are some of the highest scoring games ever, even if the last installment – Ascension – slipped a little.
Hell, even the PSP games rocked. So, what does God of War need to do in the new generation to retain its lofty status? Should we get a new protagonist and a fresh theme and environment? Many fans are calling for all-new everything; a fresh start. But is that the right move? Wouldn't a lot of those fans love to see Kratos on PlayStation 4? Isn't Kratos synonymous with that franchise? At this point, would it be like supplanting Solid Snake or the Master Chief or something like that?
Perhaps it's a better idea to have Kratos visit another setting or time period. I think you can ditch the Greek mythology setting easier than you can ditch the protagonist; he just seems like a central piece of the series, you know? What do you think? What should Sony Santa Monica do with the new entry? We all know it's coming and some of us are on pins and needles awaiting the unveiling… Ready for E3?
