God of War (2005 video game)

God of War is a third-person hack and slash action-adventure video game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). First released on March 22, 2005, for the PlayStation 2 (PS2) console, it is the first installment in the series of the same name and the third chronologically. Loosely based on Greek mythology, it is set in ancient Greece with vengeance as its central motif. The player controls the protagonist Kratos, a Spartan warrior who serves the Olympian Gods. The goddess Athena tasks Kratos with killing Ares, the God of War, who tricked Kratos into killing his own wife and daughter. As Ares besieges Athens out of hatred for Athena, Kratos embarks on a quest to find the one object capable of stopping the god: the legendary Pandora's Box.

This trailer makes fun of the game God of War, but in a "loving" way...

The God of War trilogy has an amazing soundtrack that illuminates the struggle and anger that the main protagonist of the game, Kratos, feels throughout the series. The End Begins is just a sample of how the creators infused the Greek culture and mythology, in portraying a story of vengeance.

Too beast of a game! It actually is in a way educational though because it speaks of Gods! Check it out!
