My Favourite YouTube Gaming Series #18

God of War Ragnarök – Jacksecpticeye

Episodes: 15

Synopsis: “God of War Ragnarök focuses on Kratos, the God of War, and his now teenage son, Atreus, who are facing the conflict of the upcoming Ragnarök, due to the result of Kratos killing Norse God, Baldur, while setting on their to end tyranny reign of Odin, King of Asgard and while focusing off Atreus, who tries to uncover his origins.”

I can’t begin to explain just how much I love this game. God of War is one of my favourite game series of all time and that’s saying a lot. Everything about it is incredible: the story, graphics, acting and music. 

They really upped the graphics on this game and my god is it absolutely stunning, especially the new areas. It’s one of the most beautiful games I have ever seen. The motion capture is also done very well. I love that the graphics are really good but it still looks like a game. Does that make sense? I’m all for the hyperrealistic graphics but I love it when games looks like games, you know?

This game is also absolutely rammed with lore and I love it. I’m not very clued up on Norse mythology and I feel like I learn so much from these games. The easter eggs of previous games in the collectables are very fun and I love all of the character backgrounds.

Okay, enough gushing about the game, onto the playthrough. As you may know by now, Sean is my go-to when it comes to new games and as I’ve only seen his playthrough of the first game, I obviously watched his series on this one.

He gets very into the game, which is clear to see from how much emotion he shows throughout the playthrough, especially when he cries at the sadder parts (I also did this). It really shows he’s invested and is enjoying it, which makes it a more enjoyable experience for the viewer as well. 

There are a lot of running jokes in this series that I personally find very funny. My boyfriend and I still say “skjálfa” to this day. Anyway, I feel like myself and Sean share one ADHD-riddled brain cell, so I do find him very funny. But I do understand that these types of constant jokes can be a lot for some people. 

In his first playthrough, Sean didn’t edit out any of the combat, however, he has done that this time. I do get that some people get bored of this, but I personally wanted absolutely every second of this game. I’m a little sad he didn’t 100% the game, but that’s not really his style.

This is a very long game though, so do be prepared for that if you’re thinking of checking it out. Most of the episodes are over an hour and a half long, so get your snacks ready and get cosy!

I’m very much in the mood to re-watch both of his God of War playthroughs, I may watch them over the Christmas holiday. It’s become one of my comfort series. It’s just so good.
