God of War III
Year Released: 2010
Closing out the God of War trilogy, the series' third installment also may have been its high point, giving its story arc an appropriately, action-packed ending, rife with dramatic tension and conflict. Kratos was back and better than ever, armed with his trusty set of blades, and ready to knock some divine skulls together. When does a game get more grandiose than you facing off against Zeus, the king of Olympus himself? Or how about plunging down to the Underworld to do battle with Hades? God of War takes the high bar of its subject matter even higher, by putting you on a journey that's completely over-the-top but also totally epic.
