God Of War Deserved The GOTY Award

​When God Of War was voted “Game Of The Year”, I was surprised…

Mostly because I hadn’t played the new God Of War yet.

I thought that Red Dead Redemption 2 was going to win the title of “Game Of The Year”​ easily…

Yesterday I finally finished playing through the main story of God Of War and I get it now. 

Let me explain.

God Of War not only has a great story that tugs at your heartstrings and has it’s fair share of EPIC moments…

It also has great gameplay. The combat system evolves as you play and level up.

You can feel yourself becoming better at the game and adapting to new enemies and challenges, but there’s more.

The game has puzzles you’re able to solve with your weapons and abilities you’ve gained. The thing that really impressed me is that:

  • ​These puzzles have no step-by-step tutorial. 
  • ​You’re simply expected to use the abilities you’ve gained this far to figure it out. 

This was a breathe of fresh air. 

Every new puzzle had me interested and invested in solving it. The way they would require you to use many aspects of the gameplay to solve these puzzles felt like perfect game design.

There’s a lesson in there.

YouTube is similar. 

They don’t give you a step-by-step tutorial (although I did create one with my course) and you’re expected to use the abilities and skills you learn along the way to solve the many puzzles of content creation.

You can speed up your learning process and start solving those puzzles ASAP by joining my step-by-step course “YouTube For Noobs” here:
