God of War Director Reacting to Reviews is the Sweetest Thing

God of War Director Reacting to Reviews is the Sweetest Thing”

Today is the day. This five minute video showing him reacting to opening up God of War reviews for the first time reveals a lot about the emotional roller coaster that is game development.

Brace yourself for a punch right in the emotions, because this video uploaded by God of War game director Cory Barlog is about as raw and honest as it gets. The game has been receiving flawless scores nearly everywhere, and now has a very respectable rating of 95 on Metacritic.

Barlog is shocked, so much that he's moved to tears, to find that the game section of Metacritic featured a Metascore of 93, as he's visibly moved, relieved. "I guess that just means I don't know shiiit", Barlog says in the clip with a slight laugh. "I'm just so lucky to work with the people that I work with". He adds, with visible relief, "I'm glad I didn't fuck it up".

When games are developed and published by such massive companies, it can be easy to forget the personal connections individual developers have with it. Moments like Barlog's above are a great reminder of the passion that goes into even big-budget AAA game development. He was pushed to do so after thinking about what his son is "going through right now".

"It is OK to cry. I thought I would try to set a good example and show him that papa can cry in front of the world", Barlog said.
