Are you fucking kidding me? "naked" is a banned word?

Anyway, yeah. God of War is pretty good though.

Kratos is the biggest douche in a video game series ever.  I still wanna get God of War 4.  Looks fun, although I'll miss the Greek mythology.

I like Norse mythology too, but it just seems like a weird change.

Santa Monica seems to be adopting the Naughty Dog style where they're trying to make their games more cinematic in a way.  Eh... either way, Chains of Olympus was the peak of the God of War franchise.

I like the style for the Uncharted series. Wouldn't mind seeing it translated to God of War. Never played Chains of Olympus. Was that a PSP game?

Yes it was.  The PSP games were always the better games in the franchise.  Ghost of Sparta was good too.  More of a personal story.  You even get to play as Kratos' brother.

I know they released remastered versions for the PS3. Maybe I'll go to Gamestop and just buy the whole series. They're all pretty cheap.

Totally worth it.  I still need to play the 2nd one, though.

I played a decent chunk of the first game, and a bit of 3. So I'm pretty new to the franchise. I do like the controls and combat a lot.

3 is great.  The ending was a bit more emotional than I'd thought it'd be.  It kinda adds some humanity to Kratos.  One thing I like about the fourth game is how Kratos seems to be trying to keep his rage in check.  I mean, he killed countless of innocent people all for revenge, but now, they're adding a new dynamic.

I appreciate how games are attempting to be more cinematic, in terms of graphics, storytelling, and character. I do like simple games like Mario and shit, but I do love when games strive to do more, especially on an emotional level.

I enjoyed that Batman game I got for $5 on Steam.  Really fun game and was quite cinematic.  And that Batman was much better than Batfleck. 

Also, I am enjoying these cinematic games too.  Mortal Kombat has been implementing a much more story based game lately and despite my reservations to the story, I am at least appreciating what they're doing.

Regarding Batman games, I'm getting into the Arkham series. I'm going through Arkham Asylum. It's pretty cool so far. I hear Arkham City is even better.
