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!
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.
