With the reviews of God of War: Ascension coming out and the surprisingly mild scores it gets compared to its predecessors, is this concept starting to get old? Even though the disappointing scores, I love everything I've seen from the game and I think that I myself will enjoy it more than God of War 3. But I can see that moving on with something else might be good for the studio. I'm not sure what there is to do if they're to make another God of War game. And now with the PS4 coming up, it might be a good time to start with a new IP. This begs the question: what do you want them to do next? Continue with GoW or something else? I myself love what they do with God of War so much, that while I want to see them do something new for the PS4, I also want them to keep many things that make the GoW-games so great. Here's a list of what I'd want in a Santa Monica Studios game: * Keep it linear. Don't fall into the trap of free roam. A linear game fits Santa Monica because that way they can show you exactly what they want, make it more cinematic, have the great visuals they are famous for, have the game be more exciting etc. * Keep it hack 'n slash. Santa Monica are so great at this (they're the best out there if you ask me), I don't want them to start making another shooter. * Keep the tone of the God of War games. With that, I mean the brutality and anger, the epicness, the scale, the style, the mysterious feel and so on. * Don't base it off anything that's already existing. Make something out of completely original ideas. That way, the imagination has no limits. * When it comes to style and set, I want a mix of GoW-like fantasy and present time. Mysterious monsters and characters, magic, dark feeling, no gun wielding protagonist but using super powers of some sort, ancient architecture mixed in with new etc. I guess one can say that what I'd want is basically a God of War game but with a new protagonist, new story, new weapons and powers, set in a completely original world based on nothing but Santa Monica's own imagination. Not completely ancient, not completely present day or future, but a mix of some sort. Now I'm very interested in what's on your mind!
