Forums - Sony Discussion - God of War ESRB (minor spoilers)

Tagged games:

We can't wait to see what the new God of War has in store. This will be the first time that PlayStation players will get to see Kratos in arguably his most important role yet: a Father. Seeing the next phase of this well-loved narrative delve into different themes and mythologies, it's got a lot of us excited to see how the new game will play out. Luckily, a very detailed ESRB rating has been released for the upcoming title, and though it gave us some pretty hilarious visuals about Kratos tripping over decapitated heads with his son judging silently, it did also hint at whether any romance will be once again returning.

OP's thoughts: I found this as very interesting since he is going to be a father with a child. It is very apparent that this game wanted to remove all sexuality from the series. This is a first for the series, just like its new gameplay. I personally would have liked games to explore sexuality more. But I guess we are stuck with violence and decapitated heads instead!

What are your thoughts, do you disagree?

No sex scene



Good! Hope they don't have that cringe worthy mini BS, there's an internet for that!

The sex minigame used to be funny back when I was 12/13, but removing it nowadays makes a lot more sense. It clearly wouldn’t match the new direction anyways

I was 12/13 when I played the God of War games, so that probably explains why I enjoyed it back then too

Same. However, it just seems that all games have eliminated or lessened sexuality and amped up the violence. A very American way of doing things. I would have liked more diversity, especially with AAA games.
