When the gods of Greece betrayed Kratos, the god of war it was the worst mistake they'd ever make. One simply does not piss off the god of war and not expect to get handled. Getting revenge on the gods became the mission of the gamers who guided Kratos down his bloody path of destruction in God of War. Best known for its enormous enemies and incredibly violent QTE (Quick Time Events), God of War made its mark in gaming history as one of the best action games out there selling over 21 million copies. Kratos got to star in five more games and even makes a guest appearance in Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds, LittleBigPlanet, SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny, ModNation Racers, Mortal Kombat and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. God of War also inspired the metal EP, God of War: Blood & Metal and has his history explored in a comic book and novel.
