@imsh_pl: I'd rather epic start to mean something again. It used to be a powerful word until the internet got a hold of it.
Stop using "discuss" to end posts
"Genres in games are broken" The terms we use to define games are totally out dated and in need of revision. You say its wrong to call something "God of War Like" but how else can you describe a game like that? Action Adventure? That could mean almost anything at this point. If we had some useful Genre definitions then our shorthand for game descriptions would be a little bit less contrived.
But on topic this. Describing games as being like other games is totally valid. Not only is it true that games have similarities and borrows systems(shocking, right?), but it's the easiest way to describe something. Rather than tell you all about Dante's Inferno in a long winded explanation of it's mechanics, it's easier and pretty damn accurate to just say "It's like God of War but not good".
