God of War

I killed hundreds of undead warriors, I fought against the wildest monsters of Greek mythology. The Hydra, the Minotaurs, the Gorgons and the Cyclops yielded to my strength, my skill in the use of the Blades of Wrath, and the special powers gifted to me by the Olympian Gods.

I travelled through the Desert of the Lost Souls, and retrieved Pandora's box from the temple on Kronos' back- the once leader of the Titans.
I was killed by Ares, the blood thirsty God of War, but fought my way out of Hades. I fought against myself, in a battle to save the souls of my wife and child.

I fought my way up from the realms of the dead to confront Ares in the final battle.
There, amongst the ruins of the once proud city of Athens, I took his life and his throne among the Gods.



I am Cratos, the new God of War!
This was six or so months ago, and the sequell (God of War II) is out. I am soooooo buying it!
I've never enjoyed a video game as much as I did this. Maybe it's the story that is slowly unfolding as you go on, maybe it's the great graphics those guys made for the monsters of mythology, or maybe it's the blood that seems to be flying all over the place with every move the character makes.
Whatever the reason, this is quite an addictive game, and yes I am fourty years old!
What can I say? I've got some time to kill!

I'm not great at video games, but I do well in MMO's. Good to find another fellow gamer out there!

I can't play either. Never could, ant truthfully, never had a taste for it. My son, however, he is completely enamoured. Right now, he covets the new harry potter video game based on the latest movie.

Can't get into these games...it'd be TOO addictive...I'd be on ALL day long....

Epimenides said...

hollygl - I feel soooo immature on the other hand! ;)

Thanks ting! Accidental, but good. :)

jyankee - it's more of all night long in my case. (I'm referring to the video games, just in case David reads this comment) :D

It sounds good fun. I'm not one for games, but that's because fast moving graphics make me dizzy and
nauseous.

BUT I can confess to being 43 and an addict of a few kids TV shows. My dad and I NEVER miss "Jane and the Dragon" on sunday mornings. ;-D

Epimenides said...

Hey Michelle! There's nothing more fun that kids' TV. My favourites will have to be Donald Duck, and Tom and Jerry. :)

Michelle said...

Maybe you need a new game name? The Fire Goat of War? :-D

Sounds sort of mythological.

Epimenides said...

Not a bad idea Michelle! ;)
