I played God of War for the first time! I was incredibly impressed with how beautiful and seamless the gameplay is while still being challenging (in a good way). The voice acting in particular stood out to me as well as the way storytelling, hack n' slash, and strategy all blended together to create an exciting immersive experience. I found myself screaming at the screen (again, in a good way) and realized I hadn't had this much fun since I was a kid!
Note: There are also scenes where you have to fight and hunt animals so if you're a sensitive soul like yours truly, be warned. I watched one scene through my fingers and turned away at parts.

In this first stream we:
very much appreciate how the game opens without a loading screen seamlessly.
have to hunt a deer... WHY DO GAMES MAKE US DO THIS?
threw our cool axe to break a bridge, then recall it like a boomerang.
defeated the a Draugr during our first encounter! And our second encounter!
listened to me show off the fact that I've voiced many Greek mythical characters because I'm SUCH a famous voice actor (sarcasm)
solved our first door puzzle using the freezing power of our axe and our son Atreus gave us a bucket full of SASS (around 25 mins)
encountered our first boss, a giant troll called Daudi Kaupmadr and suffered our first deaths... the game condescendingly suggests we lower the difficulty (32 mins)
mastered the lock-on! It's a game-changer! (55mins)
DEFEATED THE TROLL WITHOUT LOWERING DIFFICULTY (1:10)
learned to use our fists to execute enemies (1:18) and then returned home with renewed confidence and bloodlust (1:22)
got into a fight with a cocky, tattooed stranger (1:25) and learned hot to Unlock SPARTAN RAGE! (1:37
defeated the Stranger with extreme overkill (1:45) and omfg The Stranger is not dead and we have to put him down again! (1:48)
