I always end up grinding a ton in RPGs because I can't pass up expensive equipment as soon as it becomes available.

You know, Ascension isn't as over-the-top, and it's really not the attention whore that the other games are, but playing through it, I kinda missed that, believe it or not. I can't really take the series seriously, but I could at least have a good laugh; Ascension was a truly joyless experience, because its subdued nature robbed me of even that. It had some neat ideas, and a really kick-ass finale, but that's about it. I'd already finished the first 2 on PS2, but the rest are completely new to me, and even from the first game, I thought the grasp at sympathy on the player's part was one hell of a miss, and didn't justify his actions or absolve him whatsoever, but on the other hand, I can see it as a very valid reason as to why he went nanners. Perhaps even clinically nanners.

You're not wrong, though: 3D and I have a pretty toxic relationship with each other, but I'm okay with certain games. I can't even really say for sure what makes me okay in some and not others, but in the case of God of War, I'd guess that the practical gameplay isn't quite 3D. Yes, you have environments that are 3-dimensional, BUT, most of the challenge comes from combat, and the dimension of height is really only used when jumping to avoid an enemy attack, whether as a straight evasive maneuver, or whether launching some hapless fuck into an air combo to do a little multitasking during an evasive maneuver. You aren't in first-person, and you don't have to really aim anything, since he swings pretty damn wide with those swordchucks. Some of those camera angles are pure hell for me, though; that I'll not deny.

And they're fucking Greek gods, no less! Even the Norse gods weren't as dickish as they were; I think the Greek Pantheon might very well have the absolute worst gods I've ever studied, and I've studied quite a few religions, both dead and alive; monotheistic and polytheistic... and Hinduism, which is polytheism, but more like oligitheism, but also functionally like monotheism? It's complicated. At any rate, there's something inherently satisfying about playing as someone who's made his entire goal in life to brutally slaughter and hate-fuck his way through an entire pantheon; it's something that I think could be neat for many different polytheistic traditions... which is where it seems like the series is going with the new game. Too bad it looks more like The Last of Us than God of War.

Metaphysical Conflicts with Entire Pantheons, Starring a Man Who Delivers Every Line Like a Coked-up Al Pachino and Me: This Sort of Thing is my Bag, written by Alice Kojiro.

I fully acknowledge that stylistically, the games have their heads so far up their own asses that their faces are pressing up against lung tissue (seriously, how much can a developer beat off over their own delusions that their creation is epic?), but the actual gameplay is fun. It's like Devil May Cry without guns or much of a jump height, lots of combos, and some interesting weapons. I mean, how often do you get to play a game that has swordchucks? So, while I don't take the games seriously at all, because the story is a fucking joke, I do have fun with them. My lady did all of the shit work, so I'm going to breeze through them on a reasonable difficulty, but that was our agreement: I did the same for her with Devil May Cry. I'mma run through this "epic" adventure, screaming, "I AM POTATOS: SPUD OF WAR!!!"
