I have it narrowed down to these two:

BenQ EL2870U 28 inch 4K HDR10 Gaming Monitor, UHD 3840x2160, FreeSync, 1ms Response Time, Eye-Care, Brightness Intelligence Plus, HDMI, DP, Built-in Speakers
ASUS MG28UQ 4K/UHD 28-Inch FreeSync Gaming Monitor

Thanks
You're going to want HDR, so that asus one is out of the question.

Combat is tough, have to really focus.
But it's so satisfying. I remember playing the old games and just mashing buttons and doing fine. I love this game. I think I'm about 3/4 of the way through. Can't wait to go back and do all the side stuff.
I'm down to the last Valkyrie for the platinum. Such a great game!!

Is it just me or does the GOW game start up sound a lot like Star Wars music?

I got the platinum too - the last valkyrie was tough. Took me 10 or so attempts.
I played through the whole thing on God mode thinking id need to for platinum. A lot of frustration for nothing.

You must have 100% on the other God of War games cause if I’m remembering correctly you did have to beat them in God mode for the platinum.

Finally best the Valkyrie queen last night! Damn she was tough.

Thinking while waiting for Red Dead I’ll replay Ascension since it’s the only GOW I don’t have 100% in.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay trailer looks amazing. Hopefully, they give it a PC release.

looks so good. I've put in hundreds of hours on Witcher 3 so I'm excited to take that level of detail and put it into a completely different setting.

The 48 minute gameplay trailer was fantastic.

Really hoping they push it back to 2020 for 4K PS5.

This game does not deserve to be on the dying cycle of current gen consoles.

Can't wait for RDR2 - especially after reading this: https://www.polygon.com/2018/9/20/17876 ... e-rockstar

Played the BFV beta and boy, was not keen at all. Cancelled preorder for it. Found the changes really detrimental to it being an 'enjoyable' experience.

Wrapped up Spider-Man. A good, but really not great, game. Suffers from waaay too many open world tropes, even if it makes sense in the realm of Spider-Man 'working' in the city.

Moving on to Persona 5 next, which will be my first Persona game. Any tips?
