God Of War Ragnarok Devs Weren’t Aware Of Overly-Chatty Companions Until Launch

Back when God of War Ragnarok first launched, one of the biggest complaints was your companions’ incessant nattering. Mimir, Atreus, and whoever else would only let you think about a puzzle for two second before offering up a solution.
