Today marks the first anniversary of God of War Ragnarok. The PlayStation exclusive launched on the 9th November 2022, and was immediately met with glowing praise from many a player. Weeks before, it had received universally positive reviews from critics, with some calling it one of Sony's greatest ever first-party titles.
At the time, we called Ragnarok "a dazzling jewel in Sony's catalogue". We gave it an incredibly rare Push Square 10/10 in our God of War Ragnarok PS5 review, concluding: "God of War Ragnarok is phenomenal. Even amongst PlayStation Studios' typically stellar output it's a showpiece — a masterfully crafted game that smashes expectations at almost every turn." It doesn't get much better than that!
But one year on, opinions and feelings can change. Our perspective on past games can shift quite dramatically following the flow of time, and so were wondering whether your opinion of Ragnarok has been altered at all, now that you've had a full 12 months to mull it over.
Just as a reminder, you lot voted God of War Ragnarok as your Game of the Year 2022 — which should make this poll all the more interesting!
