God Of War Creative Director Lists His Series Favorites
In an interview with Variety, Cory Barlog has shared a chart of his most preferred God of War games, revealing that his soft reboot is only the second in this special list.
Indeed, the creative director of God of War 2018 thinks the first spot is well deserved by God of War 2005, the original game in the series by David Jaffe.
"Look, I love [the latest God of War] so much. This one is so near and dear to my heart - but that first one kinda started it all," said Barlog.
"The original God of War from director David Jaffe] was absolutely brilliant."
This is the full list:
- God of War (2005)
- God of War (2018)
- God of War 2
- God of War 3
- God of War: Ascension
- God of War: Ghost of Sparta
- God of War: Chains of Olympus
- God of War: Betrayal
"I love Betrayal, but it's the last one - something's got to be last," Barlog said with a grin.
Barlog worked as lead animator on the first God of War, then as game director and writer for God of War 2.
He was also creative director, and writer on Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, and kicked off the work on God of War 3 before leaving Santa Monica Studio.
