God of War on PS4 AND PS5?

Friendly and informative
As someone transitioning from Sci-Fi pilot writing and production design into game writing, I’m very appreciative of the friendly informative style and content.
One thought… (perhaps just for us newbies?) when you talk about a game can you take a moment to clearly enunciate the title? This has been a repeated issue over several weeks. I rewind several times and can’t capture the title you are discussing, and I really want to because what you’re saying is very intriguing. Thank you for considering this.
Much appreciation to all of you for sharing your experience and insights.
