You do. It’s extremely good.

If by any chance you remain spoiler free on the first game don’t watch the trailer for Ragnarok yet. It gives away a couple of nice reveals from the first game. Nothing that’ll ruin it but it was special to experience those things as and when the game wanted to reveal them to you.

I like that Kratos is looking a little bit closer to this concept art for the first game in the sequel. I’m sure his look will change throughout the game.

I’m replaying God of War and it’s fascinating to hear stories stories, etc involving Thor. At one point Mimir calls him a ‘fat dobber’ and on another occasion a ‘sweaty baw bag’ both are very Scottish insults.

To be honest, I think he let himself go a bit...

I really like the new look for Thor in Ragnarok. Can’t wait to see scenes with Kratos and Thor facing off with each other and, potentially, witnessing them beating the living crap out of each other. From Thors exploits, detailed in the first game, he seems more than a match for Kratos. Equally I’d love to see a story where Kratos doesn’t end up fighting the Norse pantheon, as we are all expecting.

It gives this a very Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant feel, only without Kratos being as terrible a person as Hogan

I may have to replay God of War to get hype for Ragnarok ... it's been 3 years

I’ve arrived at the point where the first game talks about the god Tyr. Pretty sure I payed little to no attention to it the first time through. Knowing what we do about the sequel I was much more attentive this time around and little details fit surprisingly neatly with what we’ve seen.

Spoiler:

There is a triptych and the last panel shows Tyr in chains. Also, Mimir says Tyr is the only other person, other than him, that the giants gave the gift of giant sight.

nvm

My goodness, I didn't realize this either first time around, the details you gloss over. I'm gonna have to replay this again. That's really interesting.
