Nudity
Sexual Themes
Blood and Gore
Graphic Violence

No profanity.

I love that GOW can be an adult game with history and maturity without being senseless. One of the best series ever made.

Too bad the new DmC can't say the same :\ The dialogue and story in DMC games have never been what I would call top notch, but everything I've seen in the new one make it seem so obnoxious and juvenile. Sorry for going off topic btw lol.

Got the whole saga for Christmas, awesome games.
rpd123  +   1137d ago
Got the God of War saga for Christmas as well. It's freaking awesome. Plus I can play the first two with remote play on my Vita which is pretty sweet.

Godchild1020  +   1137d ago
Could this mean the game is done or at least almost done and we are closer to the release date? Rhetorical question.

The beta starts soon for plus members and soon after for non plus members, I think. Can't wait to see you all on the battle field.
Ezz2013  +   1137d ago

Wow I thought this was gonna be rated C for Children.
Killzoner99  +   1137d ago
I can't wait for all this glorious Mature content. God of War games are the most adult and mature games you can buy. Games for hardcore gamers that aren't phased by massive amounts of blood and naked women. Sony makes games for adults plain and simple. The kids can play on the WiiU and 360 but us adults will be gaming on the PS3 and Vita.
Long Live Play

Unfortunately he's probably serious. Just look at his other posts.

The God of War series is one of my favorite and also one of the reasons I will be buying a PS4, but you have some growing up to do if you think it's the most mature (or even close to it). Tits and violence don't make a game mature, just like they don't make a movie mature. That's the way children think, now please, go read a book or something.

<Sony makes games for adults plain and simple.>

You mean insecure ones still trying to validate their adulthood. And you wonder why the real world doesn't respect the video game industry.

Lol these Examiner writers and their ratings board summaries...

My fellow Sony gamers, quite arguably the biggest and even most obvious reasons why a game like could only be enjoyed by the Sony gaming community is the fact that Sony gamers are classy, mature, and intelligent enough to handle such themes. Although the God of War series have been undeniably raw, visceral, and gory, Sony's hit franchise rather focuses on love, loss, redemption, betrayal, and anger. The use of these themes help justify the presence of violence in the series which in turns the series into a truly mature, adult form of entertainment.

Mature themes requiring classy, mature, and intelligent minds have been the signature trademark of Sony games, and the God of War series are no exception. It is what separates the Sony gamers from the juvenile 360, laughably childish Nintendo, and the freakishly anti-social PC gamers. The Sony gaming community is truly the superior gaming community and the entire video game industry's only hope for survival and evolution.

Sony Gamers Lead the Way!

"...freakishly anti-social PC gamers..."

And you're claiming that you're somehow part of the more mature group, with baseless attacks and a clear misunderstanding of what actual maturity really is? If anything, I would say that people like me, that respect other gamer's choice in product would be the one's that separate ourselves from trolls like you. Oh, and I also read, so I have an idea of what a mature storyline is. GOW is great, but the story is just plain childish and the writing is lazy. Don't worry, once you get into high school, this stuff will start to make more sense.

Is this an oxymoron?

Wouldn't have a GOW title any other way. Peace
kurochi  +   1137d ago
If some kid asks me to buy it for him/her, I'd definitely do it. It's a ef-ing game!!! There were no game rules for video games back in the days....... I'll be the cool 21 year old buying beers at the local 7-11 for the under-age kids..... :o
black911  +   1137d ago
Wouldnt have it any other way. Maybe throw alittle Drugs in there Aswell. Just imagine Kratos High.
