Five years of work, deadlines and processing have come to an end. Corey Barlog, the game controller released today, God of War, can finally breathe peacefully: the game came out and was very much liked by critics. In this regard, Corey shared a video that shows his first reaction to the God of War ratings, recorded on the day when the embargo on the reviews was lifted.
According to the game designer, he did not dare to upload this video for a long time. But in the end I thought it would be a great lesson for his son, who hides his tears and does not want to see anyone next to him when he is sad. “I want to be a good father and show my son that crying is normal, ” he said.
