GoW for me.

Nier Automata while great... For me was inferior to the first Nier, that was way more interesting and creative than Automata, so I went with high expectations and got disappointed. While GoW 2018 was the first GoW that I enjoyed and I am hyped for the sequel!

Eesh, tough choice. Nier gets my vote but its purely a matter of sentiment as GoW is without doubt better in several ways.

Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment?

I often think about the God (of War) who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him.

Kratos of War. I loved both games but GOW even more, sorry Nier.

I still think Nier Automata is a >bit< overrated, don't hate me.

I hate to choose, but how can I not be biased towards a platinum game, both great games, Nier was an amazing experience, and GOW, a fantastic new direction for the series, Platinum (Nier Automata) gets the nod for more Original title and better/more diverse gameplay.

Regardless of what I am voting for here it is great to see how passionate people are about Nier and how much they love it.
It is a beautiful thing to find a videogame that you enjoy this much and I am honestly a bit envious of that.

Nier this time as well. GoW was good, but it's overall overrated. So is Nier:Automata to an extent, but it's more fun, it's more intellectually interesting and I enjoyed the combat more in Nier:Automata.

I loved both. Voted for Nier though because it's one of the most unique story telling games I have ever played and will probably ever play.

Nier Automata is good, but this isn't close. God of War easily.
