David Jaffe, creator of the God of War
series, has transcended his Sony roots to say that he reckons Gears of War 2
is his game of the year. A little more predictably, he also thinks that God of War III
(which he is not working on) is looking pretty good.
In a post on his blog Jaffe wrote (in true, cuss-word riddled style - if swearing offends you, look away now), "I saw GOD OF WAR III
when I was in Santa Monica last week. I can and will not give away details. But I think it's ok for me to say two things:
"a- HOLY HOLY HOLY FUCKING HELL!!!!
I thought GEARS OF WARS 2
looked about as good as a next-gen game could look....and that game is currently- and will probably remain- my game of the year. And hell, I think I actually get to vote on that kind of stuff in some circles :) And unless I get blown away by POP
or something else I missed, GEARS 2
is the SHIT....this year. Dudes and dudettes, fucking WAIT till you see the amazing graphics...just fucking wait. And yes, Xbots, accuse me all you want of being a Sony fanboy. Just remember two things:
"#1- I just said GEARS 2
is the BEST fucking playing and looking game of the year....better than any PS3 game. And there are some damn good PS3 games, I feel.
"#2- FUCK YOU! I ain't no fan boy but this mother fucking game looks like nothing you've ever played... and you can hold me to that when this thing hits and when they start showing gameplay footage. It looks like a painting come to life- it's THAT good looking."
Since Jaffe now heads up his own independent (albeit Sony-exclusive) studio - Eat, Sleep, Play
- he can say such things.
Jaffe's sighting of God of War III
also lends credibility to the claims of one anonymous source who claims he or she also saw the game last week - along with getting wind of a slew of other Sony-related news
