In this episode of Storm's Adventures, we're going way back. All the way to 2005, the year the original God of War was released. This is by no means setting any records. I concluded one episode with a game that took me back to 1978. But this is the first time I bring the PlayStation 2 into a full blown Adventure and for good reason. When I was rooting for Resident Evil 4 in the category of GOTY 2005, there was this other contender that I never heard of exclusively for the PlayStation 2. God of War? There's no way it could be any better than Leon Scott Kennedy kicking zombies in the neck and Ada Wong...in a tight red dress. Well, since I'm now a little more open minded, and I'm sick of fan mail demanding I make a video for Kratos and his Greek Mythology antics, I will finally see if a warrior's tight red skirt can live up to my unreasonable standards of quality.
Naturally, since this is a look at the anthology, we then leap into the just as popular sequel, God of War II. Some viewer thought this was going to appear in my ill fated series, GISHAOTYA. Of course, some viewers never listened to the stipulations of the series.
Both of these games are faithfully captured in 480p from a true PlayStation 2. Who needs HD remakes? I wanted to experience Kratos in his original form. Will he still pack a punch (or stab) like he allegedly did years ago? All of this is revealed in the video.
Also, this is merely the first part. Part 2 will be picked up by my future personification.
