The First 15 Minutes of God of War Ragnarök
The first portion of a game is of the utmost importance. It sets up the premise and introduces gameplay elements to give insight into the upcoming adventure. While some ease you in, others brutalize you with intense action sequences. God of War Ragnarök looks to do both in its epic opening 15 minutes.
There are several games that include memorable openings which will forever be etched in the medium’s history. The Last of Us’ zombie attack, Skyrim’s prisoner transport and many others perfectly draw the audience in due to their incredible setup. God of War Ragnarök’s opening successfully manages to capture the intensity and fragility of battle, in an opening that is sure to be considered one of the greatest of all time. Check it out below.
