God of War returned as one of the standout moments of Sony's E2 2017 press conference. Kratos and son had a nice little boat ride before encountering the usual assortment of mythological foes and an unexpectedly friendly giant snake, and everybody was super excited to see Kratos being a good father figure. Well, at least trying to be one.
Some people were struck by God of War's new approach to action and storytelling.
