My Two Cents: God of War's Trophy

"Recently in the gaming industry, God of War Ascension has been getting a lot of buzz for one of its trophies that you receive after a boss battle against two of the Furies. This trophy, “Bros before Hos,” was patched the first day of the games release to the public to now read “Bros before Foes.” I have heard many reasons for people to be against the naming of this trophy, such as it advocating violence against women, or it being a more broad representation of the more tasteless and juvenile aspects of the gaming industry. I figured I would like to voice my opinion on this matter, and what better place to do it than in an editorial." (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

Oh give me a freaking break. I saw the entire scene that this trophy pertains to and it's absolutely stupid for this to be controversial. First off, Kratos has done much worse to GUYS in the game. He beat Zeus's face in until the screen was red and you could keep beating him practically as long as you wanted.

So he curb stomps a chick and impales her? It's not like that was even really her anyway, just an illusion or whatever. So in a sense it didn't even happen. Plus, they can name their trophies whatever they want. Who the hell cares what it's called? If you're offended by that, WHY THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING GOD OF WAR!? There are way worse things visually that happen within the game.

Also, as a side note, giving special treatment because it's a "woman" is a form of sexism in itself.
