God of War is a popular Sony video game series. Chris is a huge fan, especially of God of War III for the PS3. It was one of his favorite games of 2010, along with ModNation Racers and LittleBiGPlanet.
God of War and Chris
In stark contrast to the casual and more kid-friendly titles Chris has been known to enjoy, the God of War series is known for its violence, gore, and mature storylines based on elements of Greek mythology.
There are two likely conclusions can be reached from Chris's enjoyment of the God of War series:
- The first takes his enjoyment of the game, endorsement of Brutal Legend, and love of the Saw series of movies to assume that Chris has a wider variety of tastes than most give him credit for.
- The more likely conclusion, however, is that he plays to see the sex-themed quicktime event in the early stages of the game (where mashing buttons elicits moans, groans, and a shaking screen), as well as to verify his masculinity and maturity. Many children play violent and overly masculine games for mature audiences, thinking this proves that they are "one of the cool (older) kids." They often mimic/parrot whatever the "cool kids" think is awesome — for example, playing a game where the main character brutally mutilates creatures from Greek mythology, while bedding hot chicks in the process. Chris, being essentially a 7-year old trapped in an obese, smelly man's body, is no different.
Collosal Chan's final battle against Mary Lee Walsh in the comic was directly "inspired" by the God of War games (ditto the Collosal Chan character in general). That battle was surprisingly non-violent, especially considering the gory murder-execution of the Asperpedia Four later in the same issue.
