Of course it is. And if you would prefer to hang such a gruesome and great thing on your wall, you can order it as a print from the Art of God of War III show at Nucleus gallery.
I don't particularly like it. Definitely wouldn't put it on my wall.
I thought that fight was too easy I particularly would not call GOW an artsy game, but it is a good looking game
"I thought that fight was too easy" What fight? It was basically just a tutorial on how to ride a cyclops. It wasn't supposed to be difficult.
Lame.... GOW3 is Art + Violence and it's more than Obvious when you see the Amount of Shooter Games all the time with the same "theme"
It's art even when you rip his head off it's art. Art comes in all forms. Off topic I noticed this on my first playthrough of GoW3 but always forgot to mention it the guy from the boat from the first game and the same guy who gets summoned by the barbarian in the second in hades realm by the secret hand room he left a note on the floor cursing Kratos for killing him in the past.
Behold the glory... of the SUUUUNN !
Ever watch Spartacus or 300? Sure its grotesque but if you look at ancient art, you will see the gruesomeness of human kind and our nature of artistic vision. There were prehistoric artist. Nuff said.
Yes surely it is. Kratos fatality's are all art. Only Kratos can perform this special finishing moves. It's very difficult to perform if you're not Kratos.
...a martial art. In regards of the action, that is.
"I noticed this on my first playthrough of GoW3 but always forgot to mention it the guy from the boat from the first game and the same guy who gets summoned by the barbarian in the second in hades realm by the secret hand room he left a note on the floor cursing Kratos for killing him in the past." Yes, that gave me a quiet little chuckle when I saw that.
Nothing wrong with that. PBR
Arghh... The Kratos Helios head rip print is all sold out on the site...I wanted to get that One of these prints will also come with the Collectors Edition GOW3 Strategy Guide because I got the Three Judges print with mine. Another important thing to mention that I didn't see in the article is that these prints are each individually numbered on the back b/c my Three Judges Print was No. 7,965/10,700.
Am I the only one that kinda wants a print of Aphrodite showing her boobies along with those other two girls?
me want that too!!! q:
Me too! If theres anyone worth printing on GOW3 its gotta be the love goddess.
Looks cool i would buy it
i say it is, and here's why art, especially in this modern culture, is as focused on shocking as it is on appealing if a work shocks someone yet remains an aesthetic code ( a good selection of colour palate, good angle and photography, etc) it can be considered as art =) this is great because IMO that the be-heading of helios is one of the most fantastic angles in the game and i think the way they deal with the situation at hand is extremely well =)
The God OF War series is a work of art itself. Sony and Santa Monica retold Greek mythology and made it interesting. I cant get enough of GOW.
video games ARE A WORK OF ART
Take an art history class, and see just how difficult it was for so many artists to be recognized as being artists and not just wank-offs with no vision. It doesn't matter if people like it or not, it's FRIGGIN' ART!
Na i like a few squiggly lines with a blob of paint worth millions on my wall/s

If people are comfortable with hanging up a guy being nailed to wood in their kitchen, I don't see how this is "too grotesque."
I really took pity on these gods but I also took pity on Kratos When he.... you know.
It's beautiful art you can see the anger in Kratos eyes while he rips and pulls Helios head off. Then you look into Helios eyes and you see him asking himself holy sh!t is this dude really f^cking ripping my head off. Classic
