"Bros before hos"

so true, what's wrong with that?

Classical Greek Mythology is FULL of misogyny. To completely remove it from the game would be like asking Quentin Tarantino to not use the N word in Django Unchained. It would make it completely fake and ruin it. I love the sex minigames. They're hilarious! It's a game. Get over it.

Give me a break. What did Mr. Sessler score lolipop chainsaw???

Lay off God of War just because they didn't pay your crappy site for a review and you want attention. So bad.

By this man's logic (pathetic attempt at attention) by playing a Zelda game, I'd be more inclined to break peoples' pots when I visited their homes. Video games don't influence our decisions in real life. He himself probably defended them against gun violence and yet here he is ripping on god of war. It's pathetic how he puts on these shows for attention.

No, people just need to be mature about reviewing a mature game.

Well, it is a simple-minded frat house joke, but I don't think Sessler was right in thinking that that one joke can or should reduce the entire experience down to the same level rather than what it originally aspired to be.

Worse yet, the trophy doesn't even APPEAR till the guy rescues Kratos. Clearly, the trophy is talking about the guy rescuing Kratos from his mother and not murdering a damn mythological creature, that by the way, was trying to kill him.

It would make sense to be a little iffy if the trophy popped up AFTER you murdered the Fury, but it doesn't. Normally, when you kill a creature, if there's a trophy for it, it pops up AFTER killing the creature.... not after the damn 2-3 minute cutscene.

Pinkamena_Diane_Pie1231d ago

FURTHERMORE, we've seen Kratos murder innocent men, and if there was an achievement for that, no one would care. We're living in a world where women want the right to be equal to men, but then shit like this happens, which is incorrect I might add, and people get all up in arms. -.-' Make up your damn minds.

No need for change, as the the brutal killing in god of war, should overshadow a simple Bros before Hoes Trophy........if u want something to complain about

Where was everyone's pitchforks and torches when Sams friend on Transformers 1 gave him the same advice?

Now every site wants to hop on the Sessler Soapbox....... Part of being mature is knowing when not to sweat the small stuff....it's just a trophy , not even in game content

the only thing that needs growing is the gaming 'journalists' sense of humor...
